[ALERT] PPTP VPN Connections And iOS 10 & MacOS Sierra

VPN is a great tool to use when you don’t have direct access to your local network. Having that option on your mobile device makes it even easier to access when on the go. For those that utilize PPTP VPN specifically, and on an iOS or MacOS device, be aware that upgrading to Apple’s new OS (iOS 10 or Mac OS X 10.12 / Sierra) will remove that option. After users upgrade, they will say "What happened to by PPTP Settings?  They are gone!"

Most of us at 3Gstore use PPTP VPN to access our Peplink routers (a feature built into Peplink Routers). So when one of us upgraded to iOS 10 (we got an early copy of the final release), we noticed they could no longer use VPN to get into their Peplink. It wasn’t just the Peplink VPN of course, all PPTP connections disappeared with the update. There’s also no way to add them back. That’s when we decided to do some research and found Apple’s document on the situation. For users who feel they want to keep their PPTP, Apple states this, "Even though PPTP protocol is still available on iOS 9 and earlier or OS X El Capitan and earlier, we don't recommend that you use it for secure, private communication."

Per Apple's suggestion, here are some alternatives to PPTP connections for VPN:

  • L2TP/IPSec
  • IKEv2/IPSec
  • Cisco IPSec
  • SSL VPN clients on the App Store such as those from AirWatch, Aruba, Check Point, Cisco, F5 Networks, MobileIron, NetMotion, Open VPN, Palo Alto Networks, Pulse Secure, and SonicWall

The simple solution is to convert to L2TP. Thankfully, the Peplink routers support L2TP in the same manner as they do PPTP (just select the WAN connection(s) you want to come in over and then create a username and password) - all the settings can remain the same!

If you use Peplink to PPTP into your routers, follow the screen shots below to change your router to L2TP.  Once this is changed, it will require that your users change their local VPN settings and there will be a new "secret" password along with the normal account and password.

3Gstore is Now a Peplink Distributor

3gstore is a peplink certified distributor

3Gstore is thrilled to announce that we are now an official Peplink Distributor. Since 2009, 3Gstore has worked closely with Peplink, selling and supporting the full line of Peplink and Pepwave routers, access points, and networking gear. Over the years, we have worked side by side with Peplink providing feedback on their product offerings, joining forces on major deployments like the failover solution we provided for hundreds of Hickory Farm stores across North America , and 3Gstore President Michael Ginsberg even delivered an address at the Peplink IPO in Hong Kong earlier this summer. To provide the best possible support to our customers, 3Gstore staff has received extensive training on all aspects of Peplink hardware and management tools to achieve Certified Engineer status.

In addition to selling and supporting Peplink products, we have worked with Peplink to develop unique solutions that go beyond hardware alone, like our popular SimplyBonding and SimplyFailover solutions. 3Gstore SimplyBonding combines Peplink hardware with a hosting service from 3Gstore that allows users to bond multiple internet connections into one super fast, super reliable, unbreakable connection with minimal equipment or setup. For customers in need of reliable backup internet, 3Gstore’s SimplyFailover provides users with a plug-and-play solution that integrates seamlessly with users’ existing network to provide a failsafe backup connection and eliminate downtime. Solutions like these set 3Gstore apart from any other distributor or retailer and allow Peplink equipment to be taken to the next level.

As a distributor, 3Gstore also supports resellers and VARs. Resellers and VARs can not only buy Peplink equipment through 3Gstore at a competitive price, but they also have access to customizable “White Label” products and services. For example, 3Gstore has the ability to provide resellers with a white label version of SimplyFailover, which resellers can brand and sell directly and earn generous up-front commissions on each and every sale. For resellers that are looking to establish an ecommerce presence and allow their customers to buy online, 3Gstore has full white label ecommerce solutions available as well. Additionally, 3Gstore offers configuration services for routers that need to be configured before shipping to the end user, including inserting SIMs (from the reseller or provided by 3Gstore) and coordinating activations through the reseller’s account or via their favorite Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile or Sprint rep. And of course, resellers and VARs have access to our exclusive 24/7 support portal full of helpful resources and documents about the products they buy through us.

Verizon Announces LTE-Advanced is Now Available!

LTE-Advanced has been coming up a lot over the past few months. This new LTE technology allows cellular carriers to aggregate, or combine, multiple cellular frequencies therefore providing users with faster bandwidth. AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint have already been rolling out this technology as early as 2014. Just today, Verizon announced they now have LTE-Advanced available in 461 cities across the US. With this development, they’re promising 50% faster speeds. Tami Erwin, head of operations for Verizon’s wireless unit, says the following on LTE-Advanced, “Verizon LTE Advanced works like a turbocharger on an engine. Speed boosts kick in when you need it most, with big data use. That’s when you get the big peak boost of Verizon LTE Advanced.”

Per Verizon’s announcement, the upgrade comes at no additional cost or upgrade requirement to their customers. It utilizes two- and three-channel carrier aggregation across its 700MHz, AWS (1700/2100MHz) and PCS (1900MHz) spectrum. They calculated peak download speeds of 225mbps with two-channel carrier aggregation and over 300mbps with three-channel carrier aggregation. In comparison to what you may get without this new technology (average download is only about 5 to 12mbps), that’s quite a significant increase!

Just keep in mind that with this new technology, you must have a cellular device that is capable of supporting it. Even if your device supports all the necessary frequencies, it doesn’t mean that it is capable of aggregating them. Verizon states that they currently have this compatibility on 39 different smartphones and tablets - this includes the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S7, Motorola Droids, and Apple’s iPhones. If you’re looking for a device to use to supply Internet in your home or business, then you’ll want to check out Cradlepoint’s line of LTE-Advanced Cat6 routersSierra Wireless has LTE Advanced routers too.  Be on the lookout for more manufacturers to support LTE-Advanced in the near future!

iPhone Users Must Update Their Phones NOW Due to an Israeli Hack!

iPhone users listen up! Apple just rushed out a new security update update today. Why, you ask? Well, they discovered an Isreali company had been selling and exploiting security vulnerabilities to Apple products. The company, Israeli NSO Group, is so secretive about what they're doing, they've changed their name countless times just to avoid detection.

The group gained access to text messages, emails, contacts, and calls - this is according to a report by researchers at Citizen Lab out of University of Toronto and Lookout, a San Francisco mobile security company.

While we can go over all the details of what they did and perhaps why they did it, the point is to simply update your iPhone now!

A statement from Apple, as reported by Buzzfeed: “We were made aware of this vulnerability and immediately fixed it with iOS 9.3.5...We advise all of our customers to always download the latest version of iOS to protect themselves against potential security exploits.”

2 Outlet IP Switch - Google Services Firmware Update

The 2 Outlet IP Switch has built in email and Google Hangouts functionality for alert notifications and remote control. Recently, Google did a major update which changed their security standards preventing the IP Switch from being able to sign in to Google services. Users were unable to send emails from the switch or log in to Google Hangouts for remote control.

The new UIS-522B hardware was the first to get a firmware update to resolve the Google issues. Now, the UIS-322B has a long awaited firmware update which resolves the Google issues. The delay came down to an issue with the memory within the UIS-322B hardware being smaller than the changes required. After many long hours, there is a tested and working solution.

Firmware for both the UIS-522B and UIS-322B can be downloaded from the 3Gstore IP Switch Updates page
