I have a question: Does your HDHomeRun client needs to use a IP address to access the NAS?
For example, if you NAS is 192.168.1.5 and your tablet’s IP is on another router while having an IP 192.168.8.11, can the HDHomeRun work?
If yes then Site2Site is the correct way for you.
If you can set up Wireguard by yourself and set up the correct routing, then you can use that.
- No cloud needed.
- It is a great satisfaction for tech guys to DIY their own solution.
- Too complicated. Even for one with good skills, it takes 30 minutes to configure everything.
- If you failed to configure your server before you leave home, then you cannot do it on your travel.
- Coping with routing is difficult. By default all your data goes to your home. So your internet is may be throttled.
But if you use Site2Site, you do not need to worry about setting up sever and client.
- As long as you have the correct firmware, you can set up this in minutes. Server and client config will be distributed automatically.
- You can set this up on your way. So if you failed to make it work before leaving home, you can set up anytime.
- Your Internet data and your NAS access is in different route. So your Internet may not be throttled.
- You can monitor how much data you used. There is only simple monitoring including totally traffic transmitted.
- If you ISP changed your IP address, the Site2Site network will self-heal itself.
- You have to use our Cloud to config this. Although we do not store any of your config and data, some users still have privacy concerns.
- Now the default routing policy is splitting Internet and in-site access. So if you want to use vpn to protect your privacy this may not work for you now. But this is just routing policy so we will cope this later.
