Peplink has released their latest firmware update, version 7.0.1, packed with new features. First out of the gate is Deep Packet Inspection support on Peplink’s InControl, a new addition for several of the popular Balance and MAX models. Good news: Router security just got easier. Now notifications will appear in InControl when the router temporarily blocks Web Admin access for IP address that had one too many failed login attempts. That’s not all of Firmware 7’s tricks:
- Multiple PepVPN profiles between the same pair of devices
- MAX single cellular models now support load balancing and WAN Smoothing.
- Support for HA/VRRP extended to more MAX models
- While in standby state, the HA Slave’s WAN links will remain connected.
- The Balance 305 can now connect to two peers using SpeedFusion in addition to PepVPN.
- The 2.4GHz and 5GHz radios can both operate as Wi-Fi WAN on selected models. 5GHz radio can be used for Wi-Fi WAN.
- MAX Devices with Serial Ports can now perform out-of-band management, accessing the UART through a web browser.
For those following the news cycle, Peplink/Pepwave had released a 7.0.1 beta ealier this year. Loved or hated the beta, here is how they made it even better:
- Blacklist/Whitelist web blocking now support IP address entriesOutbound
- Outbound policies can now be determined by source ports
- WAN priority can be assigned according to groups of WAN links.L2TP and PPTP clients can be assigned to specific VLANs.
