    I can't definitively say it'll all work, but I'm pretty sure it would. I don't have a site to site connection but frequently access my home through the Wireguard server from a laptop at work and at the same time I have devices going through the VPN client (ProtonVPN) so similar in that I have VPN in and out at the same time.

    I would suggest not running everything through the VPN client unless there's a reason you want the ancillary devices using it (I route computers and phones out the VPN, but IOT/TVs/ and smart devices I don't see a reason to). You'll take a throughput hit using the VPN https://help.firewalla.com/hc/en-us/articles/360010465893 and may take a bigger hit if NordVPN gets busy.

    I see so many people with 1Gbps (or higher) connections, do you ever max it out? I have 100Mbps up/down and even with 85+ devices, multiple videos (tv/laptop/phone) all going at once, rarely max out the download, and only max out the upload overnight when I push backups to the cloud.

    Thanks for the reply Rich!

    Sounds all very promising :-) Maybe somebody else running site-to-site as well in addition to the other things can comment?

    And do I max out the connection? Well, actually... :-) when the NAS is doing its backup to the other NAS, then yes. Otherwise with just browsing and watching TV: no.

    I think everything looks fine except I don't think there is MFA for VPN yet? But maybe it is coming. https://help.firewalla.com/hc/en-us/articles/4554420886163/comments/4813141233811
