    2. [BUGFIX] eITS#200300829, 200301264, 200301372

    Fix: 2FA functional issue

    3. [BUGFIX] eITS#200603107

    Fix: Correct SSL VPN status information at Dashboard by update the SSL VPN Policy. (Update SSL VPN Policy, only allow remote user in “User” type to access the internal network.)

    Fix: Anti-Spam function may damage the mails in some circumstance

    Cause i'm thinking, is an update security relevant, if the USG is an office to DC and not an DC to ISP firewall 👦

    Hi.

    I think this is great news and I keep my fingers crossed for a more efficient and updated filtering technique from now on.

    Unfortunately, we are experiencing an extreme performance degradation following this firmware update to our USG20W VPN. Content filtering on / off is like night and day in terms of performance. I do not remember it being like this before.

    We only filter security threats (no categories) as it is great for smart devices that do not support security software.


    Will performance be further optimized?

    Hi @Ensto,

    Could you share the startup-config.conf and how you run the throughput test with us?

    as described, my USG is placed between Offlice LAN/WLAN and central server services "server vLAN".

    Zyxel - Topic 1
    is on ISP Firewall by AviraAV and an different engine/pattern source on the user devices (Win/Mac).

    Zyxel - Topic 2
    2FA/MFA is also provided by Token-app for iPhone/Android devices (soft token).

    Zyxel - Topic 3
    SSLVPN on USG for Windows is working - but not enabed in the currect network zone ;)
    ISP Firwall support Windows Client incl. Config import automatically for Windows Devices.
    Android / iOS devices can download the config and import this to OpenVPN. ;)

    Zyxel - Topic 4
    Mailscan is running for TLS/SSL mail transfer right now ?

    Zyxel - Topic 5
    Redirection is placed on the ISP Router and redirect users to an authetication logon, if they want to use dedicated destinations (e.g. dropbox).

    Any security fixes placed in the new firmware or decommision of NWA35xx or NWA55xx managed APs support trough USG60W-WLC ?

    Thx and regards

    Hi Zyxel_Emily.

    I have sent you a PM containing the information as requested above.

    1. Mailscan is running for TLS/SSL mail transfer right now ?
    Only TCP port 25 and 110 are scanned by Anti-Spam. 

    2. Any security fixes placed in the new firmware or decommision of NWA35xx or NWA55xx managed APs support trough USG60W-WLC ?
    In 4.39, we implemented the McAfee as our new content filter engine and add some bug fixes.
    All fixes are listed on the release note.
    Here are APs which are able to be managed by USG60W.

    the compatibility list .... there is no more the NWA3560-N and 5560-N in support by USG60W-WLC ?

    if this is correct, i've to stay on 4.38 (this is working with the APs well) until the zymesh infrastructure is changed to another WLC and mesh-APs  :s

    Regards

    Hi @ChristianG,

    NWA3560-N and NW5560-N are not on the compatibility list of USG60W no matter in firmware 4.38 or 4.39.

    now you flashed me :open_mouth:
    the NWA3560-N is running in mesh mode on a USG60W several years very well ;)



    Device Information



    the following AP Firmware list is shown in v 4.38 and i'm not sure if they are also supported in 4.39.
