UUT-3300, UT-6600, UT-6690 V1.07 Release Notes 1/25/2017

This release corrects the following:

There was a race condition in the tunnel fail-over feature that could result in a client simultaneously connecting to both the primary and alternate server. Any unit configured with fail-over backup connetions should install this update.

If DHCP is enabled and a DHCP lease is lost, the device would receive a new address, but the DNS requests would continue to be sent using the defunct IP address. This would result in never receiving a DNS reply and failure to resolve a name. This type of failure is likely to occur only when a router, also acting as a DHCP server, goes down for a period of time longer than the DHCP lease.

----------

UT-6602 / UT-6630 Firmware V1.21 Release Notes 1/24/2017

This release corrects the following:

There was a race condition in the tunnel fail-over feature that could result in a client simultaneously connecting to both the primary and alternate server. Any unit configured with fail-over backup connetions should install this update.

If DHCP is enabled and a DHCP lease is lost, the device would receive a new address, but the DNS requests would continue to be sent using the defunct IP address. This would result in never receiving a DNS reply and failure to resolve a name. This type of failure is likely to occur only when a router, also acting as a DHCP server, goes down for a period of time longer than the DHCP lease.

This release contains the following modification:

When the unit is reset to defaults, it will generate a new random web certificate instead of using a static default certificate. Even though the end-user can manually generate a certificate, this will insure that each device starts out with a unique certificate.

----------

UT-3302 Firmware V1.21 Release Notes 1/20/2017

This release corrects the following:

There was a race condition in the tunnel fail-over feature that could result in a client simultaneously connecting to both the primary and alternate server. Any unit configured with fail-over backup connetions should install this update.

If DHCP is enabled and a DHCP lease is lost, the device would receive a new address, but the DNS requests would continue to be sent using the defunct IP address. This would result in never receiving a DNS reply and failure to resolve a name. This type of failure is likely to occur only when a router, also acting as a DHCP server, goes down for a period of time longer than the DHCP lease.

NOTE: This release coincides with correcting the flash memory corruption abnormality during the firmware update process for some units in the field. Although no firmware modification was required to correct this problem, this release can be used as a marker to determine if the customer should take precaution when installing firmware.

If currently running firmware prior to v2.21, and the unit is in the serial number range 59103115 - 59103205 or 58800083 - 58800087, prior to updating firmware, the "pre" firmware must installed first, then immediately install the standard firmware, without power cycling the unit. The "pre" version is fully functional firmware, so this two-step upgrade process can be performed remotely. If a unit is in this serial number range and this procedure is not followed, the unit may become non-functional during the update.

UT-Soft V2.1 Release Notes 11/15/2016

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This release adds the following feature:

A VLAN tag option was added to the configuration. This will allow UTSoft to inter-operate with a UT Server connected to a VLAN tagged trusted network.

When the VLAN tag option is blank, UTSoft will work as usual with untagged packets. When a VLAN tag is entered, UTSoft will only accept Ethernet packets carrying a matching tag. In addition, UTSoft will add the VLAN tag to packets sent upstream to the UT Server.

Note: This feature was originally added to UTSoft v1.8 as an experimental feature. UTSoft v1.8 was never formally released and the feature subsequently disabled in UTSoft v1.9.

----------

UT-3302 Firmware V1.20 Release Notes 3/30/2016

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This release corrects the following:

- error handling daylight saving time when setting the clock

This release adds the following feature:

- support for externally signed SSL web certificates

This release addresses the following newly discovered security issues:

- check web URL parameters for cross-site scripting and hazardous input

- modify the web server to issue "Cache-control no-store" in the header

- modify the web server to issue "404 - Not found" error instead of "403 - forbidden" when browser attempts access to a restricted page

- configure the web server to refuse low and medium strength ciphers

- configure the web server to refuse TLS compression (CRIME vulnerability)

- update openSSL from v0.9.8k to v1.0.2g to address multiple vulnerabilities (eliminate ssl2/ssl3, eliminate insecure renegotiation, POODLE, DROWN)

Note: Previous version, v1.19, was a test release sent to select customers.

----------

UT-Soft V1.9 Release Notes 10/20/2015 1.0 INTRODUCTION This release modifies UTSoft for Windows 10. Please note: If a user attempted to install an older UTSoft package on Windows 10, Windows 10 will have erased the Software Key. They then have two options. 1) Completely uninstall UTSoft and then reinstall with this new package. 2) Install this UTSoft package on top of the old installation. Then go into the "DCB Virtual Ethernet Adapter Properties - Advanced Tab" and manually set the Software Key. Method 2 will preserve their old configuration.

----------

UT-6602. V1.08 Release Notes 01/24/2011

1.0 INTRODUCTION

Change for new hardware compatibility.

----------

UT-3302. V1.09 Release Notes 9/22/2010

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This release adds the capability of setting a secondary (or alias) address for each interface. This was a feature from the UT-3300 that wasn't carried over to the UT-3302.

This release fixes a minor problem in serial setup. If the user selects DHCP mode for LAN1, the only way to return the unit back to a static address from serial setup was to reset all options to defaults.

----------

UT-6602. V1.07 Release Notes 9/22/2010

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This release adds the following feature:

- A new tool was added to the tools page. This tool, when enabled, allows the UT-6602 to be monitored via the ModBus/TCP protocol. The UT-6602 will report the status of 4 items using the following modbus registers:

10001 Tunnel Mode 0=Server, 1=Client

10002 Target-1 0=Not Responding, 1=Responding

10003 Target-2 0=Not Responding, 1=Responding

10004 Tunnel Client 0=On Backup, 1=On Primary.

The above information is also reported on ModBus registers 20001 - 20004, 30001 - 30004, and 40001 - 40004. Registers 10002 and 10003 refer to network devices, specified by IP address. If the UT-6602 can successfully ping the network device, then it is flagged as responding.

Note: If the UT device is configured for both Server and Client mode, register 10001 will report 1. If the UT device is configured for Server mode, register 10004 will always report as 1.

----------

UT-3302. V1.08 Release Notes 4/6/2010

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This release adds the following features: - A new option was added to LAN2, called "monitor link". When set to "yes", LAN2 will be monitored for link loss. Whenever link loss is detected, the DHCP client will immediately go to the renew state. This will allow the unit to quickly switch to a new network if the cable is unplugged from one network and moved to another.

- The serial port (setup port) can now be configured for UDP-Serial (Etherpoll compatible) mode or for a TCP-Server mode. When either of these modes are selected, the setup function of the serial port is disabled.

- The unit can be set to temporarily set to defaults by pressing and holding the setup switch during power-up. The sequence is:

1) apply power, blue (bottom) led will go on then the green (top) led will go on. 2) wait for the green led to go off 3) press and hold the setup switch 4) wait for the green led to blink on then off 5) the switch may be released. 6) the serial port will be in setup mode and the unit can be accesses from the default address

Note) The default settings are not written to NV memory. The user must store the settings from either the serial port or the web interface.

----------

UT-6602. V1.06 Release Notes 6/23/2010

1.0 INTRODUCTION

The UT-6602 was unable to decode a saved configuration file written by the UT-3302. This is a problem for customers that are replacing a UT-3302 server with a UT-6602 server and want to carry the configuration file forward. The UT-6602 was modified to detect and decode a UT-3302 configuration file.

----------

UT-6600/6690. V1.06 Release Notes 11/20/2009

1.0 INTRODUCTION

Th This release corrects the following:

- The default gateway field was missing from the PPP configuration.

- Help screens were missing for PPP configuration.

----------

UT-3302. V1.07 Release Notes 11/11/2009

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This release adds support for the new Integrated Switch IC version. This update is not required on older equipment and will not change their operation.

----------

UT-3302. V1.06 Release Notes 10/27/2009

1.0 INTRODUCTION

The integrated switch did not allow packet switching between the ports, but only between the CPU and the port. The switch is now configured to allow packet switching between the ports.

----------

UT-6690 V1.05 Release Notes 10/15/2009

This is the initial release of UT firmware for the UT-6690.

----------

UT-Soft. V1.6 Release Notes 10/08/2009

This release adds support for Vista, Vista x64, Windows 7, and Windows 7 x64. The installer detects the system type and automatically installs the appropriate driver.

----------

UT-3302. V1.5 Release Notes 9/25/2009

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This is the initial release of the UT-3302 firmware. The version is starting with v1.05 to show its relationship to the other UT products.

----------

All UT-hardware. V1.5 Release Notes 8/10/2009

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This release changes the behaviour of the virtual adapter Ethernet link state. Previously the virtual adapter would report "link-up" while UT-Soft was running and "link-down" if it was not running. Now, the virtual adapter will report "link-up" when UT-Soft is running and connected to the server. If UT-Soft is not running or if is not connected the virtual adapter will report "link-down". This change was requested by a customer. The Telex C-Soft software needs the link-down change in order to cause an alert on the console when the connection is lost. (Note, this modification was made in V1.4, but V1.4 was not distrubited.)

This release corrects the following: - If three or more instances of the virtual adapter are installed, UT-Soft would only allow use of the first and last adapter.

----------

All UT-hardware. V1.05 Release Notes 7/22/2009

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This is the initial release of UT firmware for the UT-6600, UT-6604, and UT-6620 platforms.

This release corrects the following and adds IGMPv2 support:

- IGMP snooping code did not properly handle IGMPv2 reports.

- IGMP proxy code did not compute the correct checksum for IGMPv2 query messages.

- Group specific IGMP query messages were incorrectly flooded to all hosts. They should be subject to the snooping table.

- There was a race condition between starting the IGMP report proxy and bringing up the trusted Ethernet interface. If the report proxy started first, it would fail because a multicast interface had not been designated.

This release adds the following features:

- Added an option to select either IGMPv2 or IGMPv3 as the default for proxy query. Will default to v2 since this is the version the Telex IP-223 support. Using IGMPv2 in Telex applications eliminates the need for the IGMP report proxy since the IP-223 correctly responds to all IGMPv2 queries.

- Added an option to set the number of missed IGMP reports before a multicast channel is purged. Previously this was hard coded to 3.

- Additional status information added to IGMP sooping table. The table will display an UpTime field showing how long a host has been listening to a particular multicast channel. It will also show the count of missed reports since the last received report.


----------

UT-3300, UT-6601, UT-6602 Version 1.3 6/15/2009

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This release adds the following option:

- Limit UDP option. When enabled, UT-soft will limit the size of the UDP packets sent on the untrusted side to 1412 bytes. This will prevent IP fragmentation on networks with an MTU of 1500 bytes. In order to use this option, the UT-6602, UT-6601, or UT-3300 server must be running firmware version v1.3 or later.


----------

UT-Soft Version 1.03 4/7/2009

1.0 INTRODUCTION

UT-3300, UT-6601, UT-6602 Version 1.04 6/15/2009

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This release corrects the following:

- Fixed bogus memory allocation error message written to the tunnel log whenever a IP, UDP, or TCP filter was enabled.

This release adds the following feature:

- Limit UDP option. When enabled, the unit will limit the size of the UDP packets sent on the untrusted side to 1412 bytes. This will prevent IP fragmentation on networks with an MTU of 1500 bytes. In order to use this option, all units must be running firmware version 1.4 or later. UT-Soft must be running v1.3 or later. This option is configured from the "Ethernet Tunnel - Advanced" web page.

----------

UT-6602 1.03 4/7/2009

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This release adds the following features to the UT-6602 firmware:

- Etherpoll functionality may be enabled on the serial setup port. Operation is compatible with the Etherpoll, however, the setup port does not implement any control signals, so there is no support for flow control or pin 6 control. Also, the timing is not as tight as the Etherpoll. Under light load, the TxTimer may vary up to 15ms.

- Reconfigured the kernel to run in preemptive mode in an attempt to reduce serial port latency.

- The bridging code was modified to drop oversize Ethernet frame before they cause a driver error. Also, when an oversize Ethernet frame is detected, the frame is probed for an 802.1q VLAN tag. If one is present, the Ethernet MTU will be automatically adjusted to accommodate the larger 802.1q frames.

- A variation of the UT-6602 called the UT-6602MC has been created. This is an internal development version and not released. - When the Etherpoll functionality is enabled, there is no serial setup. If the user needs to reset the unit to defaults, this can be done using the mode switch on the front of the unit. The process is to apply power to the unit. On the Alix.2 board, the BIOS will illuminate all 3 LEDs, then turn off LEDs 2 and 3. On the Alix.6 board the BIOS will illuminate LEDs 1 and 2, then turn off LED 2. At this point, the user needs to press and hold the mode switch until LED 2 is flashed (about 8 seconds later). The user may then release the switch. The unit will be running on default values and the serial setup re-enabled. The default values are not automatically stored. (note: The mode switch is covered by the front label. An ice pick and x-ray vision will be required for this procedure on units with first generation panel labels.)

----------

UT-Soft 1.02 3/17/2009

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This release corrects the following:

- There was an error in handling IRP cancellation. When stopping UT-Soft there was a possibility that the IRP would be canceled in the wrong context resulting in a system crash or locking up the driver.

- Ethernet Address filters was not implemented. This could result in the network stack receiving a packet that was not intended for it. This was observed on our network when a remote PC was responding with a "ICMP destination unreachable" while someone was pinging a completely different machine.

- A memory fault trap was added to attempt to capture the cause of the blue-screen crashes that sometimes occur on multi-core CPUs.

Note: V1.1 was not released. It was a test version.

----------

UT-6601, UT-6602 VERSION 1.02 1/30/2009

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This release corrects the following in the UT-3300 and UT-6601 firmware:

- The Dynamic DNS URL was not stored in the configuration file.

- The Dynamic DNS "{IP}" field was not being expanded to the IP address when contacting the DDNS service.

Note: the UT-6602 did not have these problems.

----------

UT-6601, UT-6602 VERSION 1.01 12/30/2008

1.0 INTRODUCTION

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This is the initial release of the UT-6601 firmware. It is intended for customers wishing to convert their ET-6601 to an UT-6601. When converting a unit from ET to UT, it is recommended that the customer not do it remotely and that they default all parameters after the conversion.

This release corrects the following problem in the UT-6602 firmware:

- When a client communicates to the server via LAN2, the server should respond via LAN2. Likewise when a client communicates to the server via LAN3, the server should respond via LAN3. This was not the case. The server would always attempt to respond via LAN2 if it was up.

----------

UT-3300 UT-6602 VERSION 1.00 9/18/2008

1.0 INTRODUCTION

This is the initial release of the UT-3300 and UT-6602 firmware
