Bondix S.A.NE November 2022 Release Notes
Our developers work on Bondix S.A.NE software incrementally which means that bug fixes, improvements, and even new features are constantly added, producing new release versions every couple of days.
On a monthly basis, we publish a version that combines all changes added since the last version.
This November 2022 Release contains the following changes, including an important security update for the S.A.NE server:
New Preset "Bonding (Encrypted)" (BETA) In general, Bondix S.A.NE doesn't encrypt bonded tunnels. Lately, we've encountered customer projects for which a lack of encryption is a showstopper, so we've implemented a new feature preset "Bonding (Encrypted)": If enabled, it activates a Wireguard-based encryption for S.A.NE tunnels. This means that all traffic between client and server is fully encrypted and the S.A.NE Server also acts as a VPN endpoint. Please note: Activating this new preset reduces the maximum throughput from 180 Mbps to 80 Mbps due to higher CPU load! You should only select this preset if a fully encrypted tunnel is essential or mandatory for your connectivity project. Please also note: This preset requires the latest S.A.NE server build!
20% Higher Throughput While the maximum throughput of our Enterprise bonding licenses on the most powerful Teltonika router models can go up to 200 Mbps (e.g. RUTX50), the average throughput was set to 150 Mbps due to memory limitations on the RUTX platform. With this latest firmware release, we've been able to raise that limit to 180 Mbps, equaling a performance increase of 20%.
General stability was improved due to the addition of an internal process watchdog.
A debug message that could impede the overall performance when using layer-2 mode was removed.
Server tunnel presets now match the tunnel presets on the client.
Bug Fixes - Important Security Update!
An issue has been identified that would allow an attacker to render the web interface unusable by sending a specifically crafted request until the service was restarted. If web interface access is disabled (by e.g. having a secondary management web interface listener), the issue does not occur. To update your S.A.NE server, please download the latest build from http://releases.bondix.dev/endpoint/install-bondix-server.sh and install it according to the Server manual.
We've noticed that on firmware versions 7.02.1 and up, a problem could occur on SIM dial-up under certain circumstances. Since this problem doesn't occur in earlier firmware versions up to 7.01.2, we now provide a new S.A.NE Client build.
