Known Issues

  • “Proxies -> HTTP -> No-Proxy domains” does not work
  • “Reporting -> Network” might show wrong interface names
  • Creating RSA Keys on Compaqs with SmartArray raid controller can be very slow 
  • Downloading accounting data as csv-file does not work
  • No Key for SSH1 is created at installation

All of these issues will be fixed in the final release.


  • “Network -> DHCP Server -> DHCP-Server Leases” might show multiple entries if you “renew” your clients (e.g. “ipconfig /renew” for Windows)

  • Up2Date and Backup will not work for this Beta, please install from scratch.

This BETA includes basically all features of the upcoming 3.2, the final version 3.2 has again been delayed until mid-may, as we are really focused on having a rock stable release. Thanks for your patience.
