Today, the last core update for IPFire 2.11 in this year has been released. It is the 65th of the IPFire 2 series and comes with some new features and bugfixes.
Alexander Marx developed a graphical interfaces with help of which one can configure OpenVPN roadwarrior clients individually.
It is possible to add routes, different DNS servers, static IP addresses to individual roadwarrior clients. One may also add networks from which IP addresses may be assigned to clients. Those subnets and static IP addresses can be used to create firewall rules and permit clients only to access certain parts of a network. More work in this area will be released in the future.
The second OpenVPN-related feature in this release will increase the performance of your VPN connections by chosing the perfect MTU value. This reduces overhead and puts as much data into the packets as possible.
We recommend that everyone updates to this version of IPFire as soon as possible.
