Ubiquiti released verison 1.8 of the Edgemax firmware today



  • I wonder if this will fix the issue with multiple L2TP connections from behind one IP Address? We couldn't use that with the hospital because Vyatta/VyOS would mess up and disconnect the first connection when a new one was made.

    oh - I thought that was an inherent problem with NAT'ed L2TP - sounds like you're saying it's not.. good to know?

    If I remember right, I read a few things where people said they had it working on other systems. I'll have to look around and see if I can find the posts. That was a while ago I looked into it.



  • Updated the OP with the following command to install the update

    add system image https://dl.ubnt.com/firmwares/edgemax/v1.8.0/ER-e100.v1.8.0.4853089.tar


  • The traffic analysis they added in 1.7 was useless because it could only look at offloaded traffic.

    This is a major improvement for 1.8. I installed the update while the family ate dinner. then we played a board game and then the girls got to watch one episode of something on Netflix. So much better to see the traffic now.

    Wait that's on the ERX?

    That screenshot is from an ERL, but yes it is on the ERX also. Or should be.

    Oh cool I wonder how that will affect performance. If I remember right the ERX has to do that in software.

    If I remember correctly the traffic analysis was only available on the ERL and higher (on 1.7) because they had dedicated hardware to do the analysis. The ERX would have had to offload that to the CPU and EdgeOS for analysis. That's the platform difference in the release notes for 1.7

    Current the traffic analysis and DPI/application identification features are not available on the new EdgeRouter X and EdgeRouter X SFP models due to platform differences.

    That is awesome! Where can I find this? Can't find it for the life of me.....

    Well, maybe they did not add it to the ERX in 1.8. I only skiimmed the new feature list for the ERX.



  • Not really like you'll need that at home anyway.





  • annoyingmuse no more? i'll have to fire up some of these again and play with the VPLS/MPLS configs. whoop
