As Hristo Grigorov wrote lately in the discussion SFWD process crash, the R77.20.81 firmware is here and it seems that process SFWD is more stable now. But that is not even listed in Resolved Issues , so i bring here the more obvious news.


What will make many sad is that this and future releases do not support 600/1100 appliances. As End of Support for these is June 2022 and End of Engineering Support is June 2020, R77.20.80 is the last official firmware release for 6x0/11x0 appliances...


But that is not all of the not-so-good news - one of the three additional features is restricted: Multiple WAN interfaces are not supported on 600, 1100, and 1200R appliances. While we would be sure of the first two (as the firmware itself is not supported, too), excluding the 1200R and including only 7x0/14x0/910 models is not very generous ...


Much more helpfull is another addition: Download CA certificate (Portal) for SSL/TLS inspection. Download the gateway CA via the ICA Portal without the need to enter the WebUI. The third one, Blocking Applications and Categories from the SMP, is welcome to Service Providers using SMP portal for managing SMB appliances.


There are even pitfalls to the new WAN IFs: Multiple WAN interfaces are not supported on 730/750/1430/1450 appliances with boot-loader version 82 or older. For more information see sk138912.
