Anyone havr info as to how the connectivity differs from those of is using static ip/ dyndns and softether? I get that the vpn will no longer be needed. But, is it safe to say we still need static public ip or dyndns? The reason i ask, is ive thought of relocationg my station to a remote location and using a cellular hotspot that is showing speeds of 40mb/25mb and pings of 26 ot less. I have unlimited data plan. But, after speaking to AT&T, it looks like they NAT device ip's on a VLAN. So, im not sure it will work. Anyone ever try that? Also any input on v2.0 functionality is greatly appreciated. Will it use UDP ports, etc.?

No static IP is needed. SmartSDR will connect to the SmartLink service (in the cloud) and then broker the connection. After that it's just client to radio and the cloud service is out of the picture. No ports to forward, everything will be fully automatic. You can override this if you wish.
You can use either an account at flex or a social login like google or Facebook. The advantage of the latter is that it will allow 2 factor auth for additional security.

I can't comment more, sorry. However we are testing a variety of network connection types. Some will probably not work due to heavy restrictions (blocked ports etc) but it will be easier than VPN setup.

Of course if you still want to do vpn it will still work.
