EdgeMAX Alpha release v1.8.5alpha1


  • Service Provider

    Ubiquiti just released the initial alpha of their next firmware. 1.8.5

    Must be self signed up for their beta track to follow link: http://community.ubnt.com/t5/EdgeMAX-Beta/Alpha-release-v1-8-5alpha1/m-p/1532058#U1532058

    The notes and initial feedback both point to a solid fix for some bug that have crept in with the original 1.8.0 release. I have had to roll back multiple routers to 1.7.0 due to IPSEC issues and another router was rolled back due to issues with the MPLS modules eating CPU even though they were unused.

    Any updates for OpenVPN in the GUI? 🙂 I want to setup OpenVPN on my new ERX (which I love so far), but am either waiting for a GUI for it, or a clear set of instructions for CLI setup.

    @fuznutz04 what type of OpenVPN? Site to site? I have wrote up that process before back when I was learning EdgeOS originally. I can update it and make it clean.

    Very much appreciated

    No, I was looking to set it up as a server so I can remote in via the OpenVPN client. Basically, secure access to my home network when I need it. Right now, my experience with Open VPN is limited to the package available for PFSense. I'd like to do the same on my ERX.

    I have that setup also. both as a certificate based and as a password based. at different sites. I really need to make new documentation anyway.

    You would be hailed as "the man" if you produce that content and share it. 🙂

    It is already on the ubnt forum. buried somewhere in posts I made 2 years ago there.

    Just needs updated and reposted.

    Hey Jared,

    Any update on this new guide? I'm getting ready to replace a PFSense router with an ERX and the only thing holding me back is a working OpenVPN solution for the ERX.

    I've been working on IPSEC VPN issues that are client affecting and have not had time to revisit the OpenVPN process.
