As far as VPN, it is very hit or miss with HughesNet. Don't really know until you try.

Hi Troy,

I see it's your first post here, so welcome to the community! We have not tested that firewall. We don't recommend using VPNs with the HughesNet service as that will greatly slow down your connection.

As our FAQ states: Since your home is approximately 22,000 miles away from the HughesNet satellite in space, VPN usage for residential customers is generally not recommended as you may see overall speed reduced by 50–70% because of data encryption. Therefore, you may not be able to perform the activities you would like to do online. However, your normal speeds will return once you disconnect from a VPN if you choose to use it with HughesNet.Note: HughesNet Technical Support does not provide help with configuring or troubleshooting problems associated with VPN clients.

Let us know if you have any other concerns we can address for you, we're happy to do so.

Thanks,
Liz
