I just had a few more questions… I understand for troubleshooting on Republic’s end that the configuration of the ATA is locked down. I get that, I wish I could do that to some users machines that I have to support for my job, but alas you have to give enough access for them to do their job…
That being said, say I wanted to use this device in an advanced network setup where I needed it to be on a separate VLAN, which from reading the support docs this device is definitely capable of that. However, if the device is completely locked down, then what am I supposed to do??
Will Republic on a individual basis allow you to open a ticket and give you access or give you the information to manually setup the device so you have access to the admin console? I assume that the user name and pw are setup randomly by the system so they don’t even know what it is.
I see lots of potential with the capability that is being shown through this device and how it could be used in the future, but I think locking it down for all cases will be crippling to it. Hence why I haven’t jumped at buying one yet.
I have more thoughts on this, but I didn’t want to throw all those out at once.
