As discussed before the focus of this release is on bug fixes and there are many fixes/enhancements based on reports/feedback from community members. In addition, there are also several new features (offload, per-port VLAN, traffic analysis/DPI) for the ER-X platform, and more details can be found in the release notes below. Thanks everyone for reporting issues, providing feedback, and participating in the alpha/beta testing to help us improve the products!
[Release Notes v1.8.5]
Changes since v1.8.0
set system offload hwnat enableThis has been discussed with many community members including @veresk @dpurgert @Ubeavis @jacktooandroid @mike99 @ashamon @Isolus @Unwired @ngilles @Psudo @mobbarley @dremon @guran @jamesfry @Deleted Account @jjonsson @foresto @sagho @stcbus @o_cee @BranoB @ConnorM @bjck @hazuki @charettepa @frinnst @gaetancambier @raidz2 for example in these threads: 1 2 3 4.
set interfaces switch switch0 switch-port vlan-aware enable set interfaces switch switch0 switch-port interface eth3 vlan pvid 100 set interfaces switch switch0 switch-port interface eth3 vlan vid 200 set interfaces switch switch0 switch-port interface eth3 vlan vid 300This would set VLAN 100 to be "untagged" on port eth3, and VLANs 200 and 300 are "tagged" on port eth3. Note that the global "vlan-aware" setting (default disabled) enables the new "per-port VLAN" feature. If this is not enabled the swith ports will function the same way as before, i.e., simple L2 switching with no per-port VLAN and will pass all VLANs automatically. Also none of the per-port VLAN settings will have any effect if vlan-aware is not enabled.
set system traffic-analysis export enable set system traffic-analysis dpi enableThis has been discussed with many community members before including @WisTech @rdahlin @snapper @HillHeadTim dragon2611 @RyLeeRyno ConnorM @keefe007 NVX gaetancambier @jbrisko @calpines @psych0l @skoenman @pokwer @twoolums @idxman01 @plopes1960 Ubeavis @No_WaY @voiprouting @djwujek Psudo , for example in these threads: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8.
