Disable VPN on Readycloud?

Hi we are running into issues with M1 and M2 mac's that keep getting VPN disconnections.

Reinstalling, Uninstalling, Older versions ReadyCloud, Older version of Mac or preview build. Nothing seems to work sadly.


Is there a way to Disable the VPN functions? We already use a VPN on our client pc's and laptops.

i hope there is a option for this so we can solve our issue with ReadyCloud software on Mac.

If you have a VPN in place already, you don't need ReadyCloud at all. Though it would be tricky to convert ReadyCloud accounts to local ones.

 

How are the clients using ReadyCloud?

They use it when they work from home. On local network at work its working fine.

If you have a VPN, then ReadyCloud isn't needed at all for remote access.  You could simply stop using it altogether.  

 

Migrating is a bit tricky though, since ReadyCloud uses different user accounts from the normal ReadyNAS user accounts.  If you are using the home folders feature of the ReadyNAS, you'd need to migrate the ReadyCloud account's home folder's contents to a different one.

 

Are there other things you are using ReadyCloud for?
