New in v 1.50

Software release highlights
2018-21-11

Version 1.50 (Culbertson) brings many small changes and also fixes problems with IPsec and recent Apple devices. A complete list follows, as always, software updates (including those with new features) are free of charge. We also recommend that the latest Factory Release is used where ever possible.

Release notes from Factory release 1.49.000 (Belladonna) to Factory release 1.50.000 (Culbertson)

ACME

  • Minor improvements to ACME - handling some extra order status responses

BGP

  • Additional debug for ignored updates

CQM

  • Added more stats (total bytes/packet/drops) to CQM XML

Crypto

  • PKCS#8 formats now fully accepted and served for RSA and DSA keys

Diagnostics

  • Fix TCP download test (was always saying 0 bytes loaded)

DNS

  • Changed DNS logic so not simply fallback="true" but fallback-table defined. This means multiple table DNS will default not to fall back now.

General

  • Slight performance improvements

IPsec

  • Fix duplicate connection problem after roadwarrior client switches from wifi to 3G
  • Fix Roadwarrior problems - IPv4 NAT not working and IPv6 routing failing on Apple clients

IPv6

  • Changed ICMPv6 (ND/NA) source address in some cases to match scope

L2TP

  • Allow L2TP matched incoming sessions to set payload-table
  • Added colours to tunnel and session status

pcap

  • Improved pcap "self exclude" to only exclude the actual TCP session traffic of the dump, not all traffic to/from the IP of the browser as before

PPPoE

  • Minor change to PPPoE timeout logic - could be disrupted by frequent profile changes

RADIUS

  • Platform RADIUS server ERX parameters now tagged if part of tagged response

Routing

  • Improve some logic where table 0 has no routes and totally mapped via rule-sets (e.g s/w upgrades, etc)

Syslog

  • Fix possible syslog buffer overrun

Telnet

  • Option to configure custom telnet prompt

TLS

  • Fix lockup at end of stream on TLS connections

VoIP

  • Separate carrier controls for P-Asserted-Identity, Remote-Party-Id, and Privacy on VoIP carriers. Change of defaults to send PAID and Privacy not RPID
  • Added ACR (Anonymous Call reject) feature on telephone config
  • Included User-Name in RADIUS auth for VoIP (from From header before @) if not otherwise set (based on config user/carrier)

VRRP

  • VRRP low-priority mode (e.g. for profile off) caused flapping

Web control pages

  • User setting to hide "save" button in config edit (i.e. has to do "test" first).
  • Added Content-Language to avoid some browsers offering to translate control pages
  • CSS update
  • Adjust initial timeout to allow for slow TLS handshake
