  • replacing shophos UTM 9 with Untangle


    i am a shophos home user with a bigger family and some hobby stuff (web and Mailserver) behind that UTM9.
    i am using an intel I350-t4 gigabit network​ controller.
    with 4- 1GB Ports

    1 internal Lan
    2 DMZ
    3 German Telekom DSL WAN > for my /28 public IPs mail and webserver, SSL and stuff
    4 EON 1 GBit Fibre for Internal Lan

    i am using Webprotection, DNS, DHCP, NAT, VOIP, Intrusion Prevention,Wireless Protection with Shophos APs.

    is there a chance to have that with the untangle, because the UTM9 is announced EOL.

    I am surprised nobody from sales answered your question. LOL I think it will do what you want but the way to find out is run the 30 day trial. If you are still around

      Yepp, running the trial is key. Everyone has a unique setup.

      I, too have a quad-gig NIC:

      WAN1 - FTTH (Primary)
      WAN2 - 4G/LTE (Failover)
      LAN1 - Goes to an L-3 switch where all my VLANs live
      LAN2 - Goes to a dedicated OpenVPN router then to another VLAN on the L-3 switch (this allows anyone on this VLAN access to geo-locked services)

      The box has a 5th, onboard GbE port that is unused, but suffice to say that all 5 NICs are detected by UT/Arista.

        Here's everything included in our Home-tier subscriptions. Looks like we can do everything you want!

        How can we make Arista ETM products better?

          Thanks for the infos. i will download the trail and see what happens


          after a quick install i can tell, that arista will not replace the UTM.

          not a big fan of all this permanent online stuff and i can't use the product without any online connection.
          remote controll if necessary,yes sure, but not like it's done here.

          Leaves me with a strange feeling, that i am not in control of my device at all.

          so Arista is out.

            Just leave the internet connection out until it is setup.

              I'd install Sophos XG Home if you're not a fan. I'm not a Untangle user these days tbh

              still got a license which I’m considering using for a family member in between looking at Opnsense
