SAM brakes the Netextender Connection from a SW224

ThKThK Cybersecurity Overlord ✭✭✭

Have had nothing to do this week nor the Log4j nor the microsoft mess, so i keep an eye on the issue that a customer with all his homeoffice users was not able to work remotely.

All our SMAs have been dutifully patched to soon as it appeared. Maybe that because on the SW224 a Version 8.6x of linux netextender is included all the six SW224 boxes could not establish a sslvpn connection. Maybe it was in relation to the new WireGuard feature for SMA what is a Tech Preview build.

I rolled the SMA back to and all SMA sslVPN connected automatically to the SMA.

Upgraded again to and now i unmarked "wireguard option" in Services | Settings | VPN TUNNEL TYPE SETTINGS

Now my SW224 connections were working again.

Did anyone else noticed this issue?

When will there be a wireguard client intregrated in the SW224?

    🤔did not last for long. checked the connections in wcm and the VPN icon is red again for 2 online boxes. on the ssl no license is in use for these. I decided to go back for now to from backup. To prevent telephone terror on monday.

    After reboot of the sma the 2 online boxes appear immediately in the SMA and consume 2 licenses as expected.
