    RV042 Firmware v1.3.12.6-tm Release Note



    1. Support Trend Micro ProtectLink Gateway service, which requires the purchase of
    a license key (i.e. LBATMPG05 or LBATMPG25).
    2. Fixed a UDP Port 0 DoS vulnerability issue.
    3. Upgraded the OpenSSL library from version 0.9.6d to 0.9.6e to address some
    vulnerability issues.
    4. When remote management and HTTPS are both enabled on the Firewall page, the
    HTTP-based remote management is no longer available. Users have to use
    https://<Router WAN IP>:[port number] or https://<Router WAN IP> for remote management.
    5. Support 50 QuickVPN users.

    Known Issues:

    1. QuickVPN Client v1.2.8 on Windows Vista cannot work properly when the Vista PC uses
    a wireless adapter to connect to the network. The issue will be fixed by a future
    release of QuickVPN Client.

    2. Windows Firewall needs to be enabled on Windows Vista in order for QuickVPN Client
    to function properly. This is due to the fact that IPSec service on Vista is disabled
    when Windows Firewall is disabled.

    3. QuickVPN Client v1.2.6 on Vista does not work properly when the Server Address is
    a DDNS domain name. This issue was fixed by QuickVPN Client v1.2.8.

    4. There is a known issue with Windows XP SP2 Firewall - ICMP packets are always dropped
    by the Firewall when the Firewall is enabled. The issue will cause the QuickVPN Client
    not being able to establish a tunnel with the remote QuickVPN Server successfully.
    Microsoft has released a patch to fix this issue. Once you install the patch, the issue
    should be resolved.

    RV042 Firmware v1.3.10 Release Note

    10/23/2007 (beta testing)

    Issues Fixed:
    1. Fixed an IPSec NAT-T issue that the main mode initiator does not change UDP port to
    4500 in the 5th packet as required by RFC 3947.
    2. Fixed a problem that users in the LAN cannot access a non-standard FTP service.
    3. Increase the maximum password length to 64 to match with the help page.
    4. Support the % sign in the router's password.

    The "Trend Micro ProtectLink Gateway service" is something new. Has anyone used this kind of service, before. Is it good for something?

    It depends on your situation.
    I glanced at it - but it really wouldn't do much for me except get in the way.
    If you host your own email servers and have spam issues, or have end users so obtuse that they repeatedly allow their systems to become infected, then it may have value.

    I host our email externally, and very good spam filtering is already included.

    I've never been particularly impressed with the effectiveness of Trend's AV products either.

    OpenDNS takes care of the bulk of phishing sites and such, and is transparent.

    For me, that doesn't leave much.

    I do see the value of malware blocking at the gateway, but it's not compelling enough for me to give control to a third party.
