The new UDM is perfect. Thank you for that. I just would like to know if there is any security in place or planed to prevent the probe from connecting to sites that could bring me into trouble. Where I live this would only concern illegal sites/servers, but as we all know access to political sites are monitored in other countries by the government(e.g China).
