Headless units in 12.0?!

I tend to spend some time looking in Bugzilla for news or bugs that can effect my users/clients and I noticed bug 12496 “Cannot install 12.0 over serial console”.

Everything in that subject screams headless installation and that would open for a huge new lineup of hardware.

My hope is that Untangle NG FW will start a new lineup for home users that utilities a smaller chassi then the u50w but still can bring the power needed to do Layer 7 filtering (Application Control) and Antivirus scanning.

So one can do a campaign targeted home users that want to control there network with a powerful Nextgeneration firewall!

Untangle Inc is still hiring

Liv my dream and apply to one of Untangles career choices now.

As I live in Sweden and can’t move to the US and all positions Untangle tries to fill is based in the US we have a catch 22 moment.
But hey if you live or can move to US toss in a application and see if they like you!

I have been around the “core” team over at Untangle for Years and would love to one day work side by side with them so if you can take the chans!
You have nothing to loose and everything to win!

Good Luck!

Closing of BUG 12530 Update OpenVPN Windows Installer to OpenVPN 2.3.8

Looks like Untangle NG FW 12.0 is coming closer and closer!

I at least have done my part with closing Bug 12540.
I normally update the OpenVPN NSIS installer script with every rls Untangle puts out.
And with the updates in OpenSSL there has been a few rls the last years.

So now we wait for the other 37 bugs to be resolved and hope for a Beta before Xmas ūüôā

Use the Full-tunnel Option to Secure your internet access abroad.

As some of you know I spent a week in Crete and going without Internet for a week is just a no go for me.
But then how much do you trust public “free” wifi hot spots like this one?

I for one has in younger days played allot with MITM (Man-in-the-middle) attacks.
So i have no trust for any public wifi hotspots.

There fore I am really happy that with Untangle 9.3 the OpenVPN module supports Full-tunnel.
Meaning that now all traffic will go over the VPN and out via the Untangle unit. (if you configure it will say split tunnel is still a option)

But when dealing with Offsite usage that you wan’t to protect and/or filter there internet usage Untangle with Full -tunnel is really neat!!!

As 9.3 still is in Beta period I will not post a Step by Step but as soon as there is a Stable build of 9.3 I will do a Video guide on it.

OpenVPN full tunnel with Untangle 9.3

Today I ¬†took part in the testing of the¬†nightlybuild that should have fixed the last issues with “full tunnel” implementation. And it did fix the issues!!!

With 9.3 (as it looks right now) you will get a new option on your Adress pool.

If you hit the Edit button on the pool you will see this:

So you can create two address pools and have one for split tunnel and the other for full tunnel.

I think this is one of the last things Untangle has been missing and I am super happy that it is coming i 9.3!
