This firmware release is a breakthrough: After working on it for three years, finally a brand new and highly improved implementation of our WAN optimization feature is back. It's much more compatible, faster and stable than its first incarnation from a decade ago.
Whatever link you might have, may it be bonded LTE, lossy DSL or even satellite: Our new firmware will perform better than ever. In addition to this, this firmware is bringing a metric ton of bug fixes and improvements, which you will find listed below. This release also contains a very important update if you are using Hub virtualization. Please note that this release does NOT fully support IPv6. Please check the release notes below for both issues.
An updated firmware image will be available on Amazon AWS as soon as their approval process is finished.
If you wish to upgrade from Classic firmware, please first update the router to the last stable Classic firmware release (Version 2015081830/2015102900 released on November 27th 2015). Please note that upgrading your firmware from Classic to RuggedVPN requires a Viprinet Lifetime Maintenance license to be active. For more information, please check https://www.viprinet.com/vlm. It is possible to have Routers and Hubs running on the latest version of Classic firmware connect to a device running RuggedVPN firmware. However, in this case a compatibility mode will be used, which limits performance and features. It is therefore not recommended to permanently use such a setup, but it is OK to have a Classic firmware device talk to a RuggedVPN firmware device while you are upgrading these devices. The Software VPN Client is available based on Classic Firmware and alternatively based on the RuggedVPN firmware generation. This is the final firmware version that still supports connecting old devices running our Classic firmware generation (2015 and prior) and upgrading from such a firmware release.
The list below lists all new features and bug fixes compared to the previous stable RuggedVPN firmware release (Version 2017102440/2018041200 released on March 24 2018).
