Has anyone found a way to bridge the Fingbox across multiple subnets?  I am a Verizon FiOS customer and need to separate my in-home network from the set top boxes.  It would be nice to monitor both networks without purchasing a second Fingbox.

    Let's see if anyone has a work around. Fingbox doesn't support multi-VLANs and we aren't planning to I don't believe since Domotz (our sister company) is providing those sort of functionalities! https://www.domotz.com/

    Unfortunately Fing doesn't support multiple VLANS.
    However, I did install Domotz on a Windows machine at home (for testing purposes) and it does support VLANS.  While I'm not a fan of subscriptions, that seems to be the wave of the future and may have to bite the bullet on this one.

    I purchased a 2nd Fingbox to support a separate VLAN. Would definitely have to look at other solutions if I had more than just the two.

    Yeah I'm currently playing with the trial of Domotz but I'm going to be brutally honest here:
    $19 / month?  For a business, sure.
    Home?  Um, no.

    yeah, VLAN functionality would be great. Really only trunking is needed on the FINbox side.

    Hi @Chiefplumber I've slightly modified the title of the post to make it a bit more eye catching for those who may be searching for similar information!

    I would be willing to pay more for a Fingbox with multiple interfaces so that it could exist on multiple subnets/vlans at once.

    feel free to add any details about what you'd be willing to pay too/any use cases (home/business) to strengthen the case as well

    Yeah I wish Fingbox could support multiple subnets, not necessarily VLANs. I have a client where I just installed a nice SonicWALL NSA 2650. Ethernet LAN is 10.0.25.x. Primary WLAN is 10.0.26.x, Guest WLAN is 172.16.7.x - would like the Fingbox to be able to scan all 3.
