I currently use TL-R605 router at my home, and I find it quite efficient. I use it in standalone mode because I appreciate the user interface and the functionalities it offers, but I'm a little bit disappointed by the impossibility to use either Openvpn or IKeV2 vpn protocols for my 'client to router' vpn connexion. And it's a little bit frustrating to see that it seems possible using Omada, but I don't want to use Omada (because I don't easily find some options I use in standalone mode, and I want to access the router parameters page in a simple manner with my browser).
The question : do you think IKev2 (or Openvpn) could be made available in standalone mode through a next firmware ?
I'd like to move from IKev1 to IKev2 for 2 reasons : first because it is considered more secure in a number of sites, and also it includes NAT traversal, which would be useful in my case. I don't really understand the rationale to propose these protocols in Omada mode and not in standalone mode, neither not proposing them in the standalone mode, in such a recent router. Please TP-Link, implement, if it is possible, this kind of possibility in a next firmware update !
Thanks for reading,
Edit April 15th :
@Fae do you think these improvement could be included in a next firmware update ?
@all : if you would also be interested by Openvpn & IKev2 in standalone mode, don't hesitate to reply or send a Kudos, to promote this evolution - thanks in advance ;-)
