Freedome trusted network subnets?

Hi,

Why isn't devices in different subnets available even wifi has been enabled as trusted on freedome (android). When you connect to ie 192.168.0.0/24 wifi network (trusted) you can access, ping, ssh etc devices on 192.168.0.0/24 network but NOT devices in 192.168.1.0/24.

Some people (maybe) are using tablet/android devices for fast work these days in different network segments for conveniency instead of laptop (ssh, web mgmt etc). Another segments work ok if you disable freedome.

 

Maybe I'm missing a point but couldn't other private segments be allowed? It would be nice atleast to be able to specify trusted segments if it is bad security idea. Or is this some routing problem with freedome vpn.

Hi fozters,

 

Freedome once connected to single Wifi network, it is not possible to connect to other devices from different subnet since it is only meant for one connection per time. If you are required to be connected to different subnet, it is recommended that you turn off the Freedome VPN.

 

While it is still possible to switch on Freedome VPN when connnected to your different subnet, this may however hinder access to devices from other subnet.

 

Thank you

Thanks for clarifying! In case you have Freedome VPN + F-Secure device agent installed on android device, when you disable freedome, does it make the device vulnerable for threats or does the device agent still give some protection? Thanks ahead!

Hi fozters,

 

F-Secure Device Agent is an application that allows Freedome for Business to work with the PSB Portal. Could you please give more information what it means by disable Freedeome?

 

Thank You

Aah, okay. By disabling I meant switching off, but of your describtion of device agent I think it means: Freedome off = protection off, thanks!
