    @Firewalla Team - Hey guys the wait is nearby the end as Wireguard will be part of Linux Kernel 5.6!
    Can you make it soon happen on Firewalla devices as a modern, more secure and light faster option as resides on kernel itself?!?!

    https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=bd2463ac7d7ec51d432f23bf0e893fb371a908cd

    Will be a great gift to all of us!

    Is Firewalla VPN server to Firewalla Client (3rd party VPN) possible...in short, can you direct all your traffic from the firewalla server to 3rd party VPN.

    Did anyone manage to get this to work with VPN Unlimited? I managed to import the openVPN profile, but after filling the user and pass it won't connect.

    Confirmed TorGuard is working. Issues importing the OVPN file, so cut and paste the code.

    @neil's solution also work for profiles generated by Mullvad VPN, which is simply leaving only one "remote xxx" entry in the .ovpn file

    A couple of questions:

    1. How is the compatibility with TorGuard [1]?

    2. How does Firewalla deal with failure concerning the 3rd party VPN? Does it automatically reconnect? Is all external traffic blocked until successfully reconnected to avoid leakage outside of the 3rd party VPN?

    3. Is there any monitoring regarding 3rd party VPN performance... in case you are paranoid about the performance of your 3rd party VPN provider :-)

    4. Is there anyway to have multiple concurrent VPNs? So e.g. traffic bound for the UK goes via the UK VPN, and traffic bound for country X goes via the X VPN?

    1. We have not tested the compatibility with TorGuard.

    2. There is a kill switch feature provided in Firewalla that you can choose to pause device traffic if VPN connection is broken and resume the traffic when the connection is auto recovered. This option can prevent leakage.

    3. We don't have performance test at this moment. 

    4. policy-based VPN routing will be supported on Gold.

    @Melvin, Thanks for the quick answers. Do you have a link to the kill switch feature? Probably useful for other people browsing this VPN section :-)

    Another question, currently I'm connecting to my 3rd party VPN via Linux running on my router. However, from time to time the system randomly gets unstable and I must manually reset. There is no feature to e.g. automatically reset every day, etc. Does Firewalla have such an automatic reset feature which can be used as a last ditch attempt to gain a better quality of service if all else fails?

    Firewalla doesn't have the auto reset feature. Since you are techie, I guess you can just ssh and add a root cronjob to restart every night :)
