Basically looking to have this functionality be available from the GUI:
I'd like to be able to have the following:
- Clients on LAN (including multiple VLANs) use the EdgeRouter for DNS
- EdgeRouter registers DHCP and other static entries in local DNS database (for split DNS)
- All other queries that would go to an external resolver instead go through DNSCrypt, which has its own config for what resolver(s) it will use
There are a number of requests that depend on having firmware based on a newer Linux kernel. The 3.10 series kernel is already EOL as of Nov. 5, 2017 (a couple of weeks prior to this posting) and not recommended for use by its maintainer, even if it were upgraded to the latest 3.10.108 instead of the current 3.10.14:
As I understand it, there are challenges to upgrading the EdgeOS kernel due to dependencies on the Cavium and MediaTek SDKs, as well as UnionFS support not being in newer kernels. It should be possible to overcome each of these things with some effort and investment, and it's a requirement for keeping the EdgeOS platform relevant.
This request originally came about because of an effort to include the Cake shaper, which would bring a real improvement for control of latency under load as compared to the currently shipped fq_codel. Cake has been compiled for EdgeOS, but is very difficult to keep backported to the 3.10 series:
However, a newer kernel is also necessary to maintain a secure, stable and performant platform in general. The 4.4 kernel series has a projected long-term EOL of Feb, 2022, and thus might be a good minimum version to target.
Would it be possible to change the firewall rule delete confirmation to include the rule description along with the number? For those of us with hundreds or thousand of rules to manage it would make things a little easier to have one last piece of confirmation that we're deleting the proper rule besides just the number. I think it would help new users too.
Also a similar warning/confirmation on the DNAT and SNAT rules would really help.
Would really love for EdgeMax router configuration wizards to default disable ubnt-discover, at least/especially on the WAN interface. With cable modems, some providers are blacklisting devices that send the broadcast traffic, and firewalling your inbound traffic obviously doesn't do anything for their concern.
After a "quick" setup of an emergency replacement router, I wasted several hours on endless reboots of the modem and router to realize what was going on; doesn't help the noob user experience. Generally configure from scratch, but this time I was stuck trying to just get the thing up and running.
Currently on all EdgeRouters, disabling a port, leaves the ethernet carrier up and the lights continue to blink.
In the case of EdgeRouters with switch chips, data continues to pass through the switch on disabled ports assigned to a switch. On routed ports (not on a switch), the routing is stopped, but ethernet hardware kept up on both ethernet and SFP ports.
The desired behavior is to drop the hardware ethernet carrier state when a port is disabled. This allows quick ospf triggering of port down state and is common sense behavior when someone plugs a cable into a disabled port.

we currently run vyos as a vm in our infrusturcture. (in a commercial setting) while vyos is a great router os, lack of commercial support or fulltime development means it lacks a steady relase cycle.
before vyos, we used vyatta with much success. unfortunately brocade saw things differently, and sought to overprice vrouter and effectivly end all suport for the community edition. With the commercial edition restricively expensive we moved to vyos.
if Ubnt were willing to release a commercial edition of edgeos AS A VM with either a licenseing option or by purchasing a hardware router with the ability to 'migrate' the serial number to a vm etc. we would be the first to purchase it.
i know this has been asked before, however knowing that ubnt has hired a few of the previous dev team at vyatta, i feel this would be a nice homage to their roots of the USG, Edgerouter, and edgeswitch lines.
EDIT: If ubnt would like to support the large enterprise and carriers a VM is a must. alot of these types of infrustructures already have a full Hypervisor cluster in place which has much higher levels of redundancy than a single hardware appliance can provide.
many of the top network vendors have this already, from Cisco, to Fortinet, to Juniper. if UBNT wants to gain market share against those brands this would be a fairly easy way to do so with very litle R&D cost, as compared to a hardware device.
I believe there are various threads in the EdgeMax forum discussing and making available various scripts to auto-populate and compile list of networks and addresses from various reliable sources such as SpamHaus to block.
Is it possible for UBNT to consider making this a feature available to all users who may not be skilled enough to do so manually?
as per the topic
the pppoe server can handle chap authentication which some cpe devices require but at current this requires patching the PPPoEServerConfig.pm to change the $str .= "refuse-chap\n"; to be $str .= "require-chap\n";
the pppoe-server rp-pppoe can support multiple service names
but more important is that by default the pppoe-server ignores requests if they are to a service-name that the server is not setup to use
some times clients setup the service name on cpe kit causing the clients requests to be ignored by the pppoe server on the edgerouter
on a cisco running a pppoe-server it would accept the client even with the unknown service name
I would like to see the feature implemented of having an L2TP over IPSec client running on the EdgeRouter. We have serval instances where we need this for client implementation where native IPSec to IPSec is due to technical restriction on the remote end is not an option. My thoughts to the features would be:
- ideally configurable via GUI
- define specific remote networks for routing (or have them advertised by head-end)
- status shown in vpn section
I have also seen some others asking for such a solution in the forums, so I am hoping for some support for this implementation request.
After a very late night yesterday, caused by me inadvertantly deleting the allow rule which was permitting traffic from the LAN to pass to the WAN, please could we implement an anti-lockout rule for all things management. Maybe let it apply, but have a 5 minute timer whereby if it hasn't been confirmed, it undoes the last change.
I ended up having to drive out to our CoLo and pay an out-of-hours fee in order to get it all back online. 90 minutes driving, 30 minutes configurating.
Yes, my fault, but routers like Mikrotik have rules like this, so I don't think I'm asking for a lot
I have been in dire need of compatibility with AVB protocol, many devices have full support for the IEEE 1722.1 standard.
This need is of utmost importance for the integration of audio / video systems, based on streaming. It is a commercial and technical strategy for the new applications.
I'm working on an implementation with EdgeRouter Infinity and 16 XG switch.
This does not support AVB, unlike other solutions like NETGEAR and etc.
Following is my request for implementation of IEEE 1722.1 support.
Thank you very much.
B.A.T.M.A.N. advanced (often referenced as batman-adv) is an implementation of the B.A.T.M.A.N. routing protocol in form of a linux kernel module operating on layer 2.
Would it be possible to add this in EdgeOS?
Or what is the reason why this routing protocol is removed from kernel destined for a router?
The general kernel version (same version number as on edgerouters) basically has support for batman-adv.
