Known issues and limitations:

  • Web proxy squid update from version 3 to 4 breaks the cache database. To repair go to “Services: Web Proxy: Administration” tab “Support” and click “Reset”.
  • Web proxy login privilege is no longer available. Access may be restricted by a group selector instead.
  • Nano images require a reinstall using the latest image to avoid inode shortage which makes the System appear to run out of space during recent 19.1.x updates.
  • OpenVPN no longer supports listening on gateway groups. Use localhost paired with port forwards instead.
