Title: 18.1.6 question
Post by: Julien on April 09, 2018, 11:21:42 pm
Hi Guys,
the release note of 18.1.6 shows the below message.  can someone please explain what happens exactly with the VIP and Multi-WAN ? we are using this on our firewall and didn't want to update untill stuff are clear to us. thank you
Code: [Select]
Three mentionable changes are included: We are switching back to single-source NAT on the primary IP instead of using all additional VIPs on the interface. The hardware-assisted VLAN capability check was removed from the system enabling e.g. XEN users to create VLANs. And the multi-WAN traffic shaping experience has been corrected for non-default interfaces within the scope of shared forwarding.

With 18.1.5, If you had multiple WAN IP, OPN would randomly Pick one. For shaping it fixes a Bug that one direction of multiwan wasnt shaped. All good.

Just wait a couple of days If you are unsure

It's a NAT fix for a regression-like behaviour since 18.1 that restores NAT to how it worked on pre-18.1, a feature addition that has no operational impact on running system and a tiny but effective fix for a very special shaping case coupled with multi-wan. In that order.

Thank you guys,
we have applied the update on a multi wan and we confirm the multi wan is still working fine.
