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.
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
It would be great if there was a way to monitor the status of VRRP natively ... why not use IETF standard VRRP-MIB?
The basis for this idea is here: https://community.ubnt.com/t5/EdgeRouter/SNMP-OIDs-to-monitor-VRRP/m-p/2383558#M211485
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.
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?
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.
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.
For those with alpha forum access, see also here:
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.
it would be nice to produce a swtich with 2 port of sfp+ can power the AP's ( PoE )
with this 3 verions :
1- PoE 8gb ports + 2 ports SFP+
2- PoE 16gb ports + 2 ports SFP+
3- PoE 24gb ports + 2 ports SFP+
because i cant buy ES-48-750W to power my WISP i dont need 48 port i just need 8 ports
thank u in advance
there is a similar request for USG:
ZeroTier is a VERY simple VPN/SDN client that is cross platform. They have a debian jessie build for mips64 and the guys at zerotier are very responsive so I'm sure they'd work with ubiquiti to get a build going. The configuration options are also very simple. join, leave, and status so a UI would be cake.
I would like to have support added for the Cake shaper (https://www.bufferbloat.net/projects/codel/wiki/Cake/). This shaper is working well for me with Smart Queue Management on LEDE 17.01 to eliminate bufferbloat (https://www.bufferbloat.net/projects/) better than the EdgeMax Smart Queue feature and fairly share bandwidth per LAN IP address rather than per connection on an ADSL2+ link. I have "dual-dsthost nat" set for the ingress queueing discipline and "dual-srchost nat" set for the egress queueing discipline.

Patch to add cake support to iproute2:
I am using the layer_cake.qos script at the moment.
