How can we improve Kerio Control?

Support for USB GPRS, 3G, 4G modems

It would be great to have support for most popular USB GPRS modems.

    I see that my ZTE R218 is detected by kerio in usb mode and show as ethernet interface on my kerio virtual appliance, but only if i connect the usb device via vmware workstation to my esxi host. If i map directly an usb from the host to kerio vm, modem is not recognized. Just for your information

    Buy Kerio, buy a router, to be used only as a bridge ... What is the complexity for the developer to make support modems Linux?

    To be fair, it's possible to do with regular consumer router. And, arguably, it is even better.
    First of all, support of USB modems is always very spotty on routers from vendor to vendor. In Russia Zyxel has widest support. I doubt Kerio would be able to keep up with USB modems in all countries for all carriers.
    So I bought zyxel router, plugged USB modem, connected by cable to Kerio.
    In Kerio I set it up as Internet Interface.
    You can forward all port in a router to Kerio, you dont have to forward them individually for VPN etc...
    As a bonus you'll be able to mount a router higher then server for stronger wireless signal (especially if you Kerio is in a rack)

    Do you plan to implementation of the Kerio with 3G / LTE USB modems?
    Планируется ли поддержка в KERIO 3G/LTE USB модемов?
    В текущей сборке kerio-control отсутствуют пакеты usbutils, usb_modeswitch.
