The new .vantronix Firewall Release FW.48
.vantronix releases a new software version of the .vantronix Firewall Operating System (.vtFOS) on March 1st, 2011. The new version FW.48 introduces an important new capability - the Network Migration Gateway (NMG) for IPv6.

We made our previous FW.47 release 30% faster than before by optimizing the networking stack and memory access. Now we gained gained another performance improvement with FW.48 by optimizing the compiler chain and code execution path. And it is important to mention that we handle "jumbo frames" at nearly wire speed.

The latest .vantronix software platform is based on OpenBSD 4.8, the world's most secure operating system that emphasizes portability, standardization, correctness, proactive security and integrated cryptography. OpenBSD 4.8 features significant improvements in networking, security and scalability and includes some of .vantronix's contributions in these areas.

After introducing our new .vantronix Firewall Manager GUI with the FW.47 release, we optimized our .vantronix command line interface (CLI). The modular .vantronix command line interface (amCLI) in the FW.48 release includes a smarter error reporting, better command handling and improved usability. The CLI can be accessed via SSH or the out-of-band console of the .vantronix products.

The Nework Migration Gateway combines and extends the .vantronix IPv6/IPv4 Gateway with the transparent IP security option, improved usability, flexibility and superior performance. It is a technology to connect legacy IPv4 clouds to latest generation IPv6 networks (IPv4-to-IPv6), state-of-the-art IPv6 networks to the traditional IPv4 Internet (IPv6-to-IPv4), and to provide dynamic protection with the IKEv2 IP security mechanism (IP-to-IPsec).
