Due to christmas holidays and turn of the year the automatic online update rollout for existing systems with valid Software Maintenance starts on 15 January 2016.
In the upcoming years the currently used IPv4 addresses will be replaced fluently by the new IPv6 addresses. The reason for this is the insufficient amount of available IPv4 addresses. The first providers have already started to deploy IPv6 enabled internet broadband access to their customers.
To be fit for the requirements of tomorrow all network services starting with IAC-BOX 7.0 are now IPv6 capable. This allows seamless intergation of IAC-BOX into existing or new IPv6 enabled provider networks.
The "WAN Zone / Office-LAN" as well as the "Management-LAN" can therefore be configured to run the IPv6 protocol.
Using the new IAC-BOX system dashboard you will never miss important notifications again and you can monitor the system state constantly. The dashboard displays information like:
On numerous requests of our partners we have implemented the option, that customers can login only using their password, without username. This allows a more convenient login for guests. This option is available for login using desktop devices as well as mobile devices.
To activate this feature, enable "Password Login" in WebAdmin menu "Client Logon / Design" and enable the checkbox "Password Login" for at least on ticket template.
The duration of the feature "Remember Me", how long an already registered device should be remembered, can now be configured individually in WebAdmin menü "Settings / General". IAC-BOX remembers already signed-in devices for maximum of 32 days for the time last seen.
From now on, when creating a new DHCP range, you can define if the range should be available for IP address assignment to clients or if the range should be excluded from the DHCP pool.
During the manual installation process you can assign the available network interfaces to each zone individually ("WAN Zone / Office-LAN", "Guest Zone / Surf-LAN" and "Management Zone")
With IAC-BOX 6.0 we have introduced the Batch Access API. This feature allows you to request any System-, Log- and Statistic data (e.g. Statistics, Application Log, currently users online, hardware status, ...) or even perform a system backup remotely using a simple HTTP request for further processing. A detailled documentation how to use this module is available in our Documentation area.
The Batch Access API has been extended by the following remote commands:
