This firmware release is bringing two new features a lot of our partners have been requesting. It also contains two very important security fixes. We recommend all installations to be updated immediately!
If you wish to upgrade from a 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 in place. For more information, please check https://www.viprinet.com/vlm. It is possible to have Routers and Hubs running on the latest version of the Classic firmware connect to a device running RuggedVPN firmware. However, a compatibility mode will be used in this case, which limits performance and features. It is therefore not recommended to use such a setup in production permanently, 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 both based on Classic Firmware and alternatively based on the RuggedVPN firmware generation. Both versions are still supported, but we recommend migrating to the RuggedVPN one.
The list below lists all new features and bug fixes compared to the previous stable RuggedVPN firmware release (Version 2017102440/2017120100 released on December 6, 2017).
