Combined router + tunneller endpoint ER images:
NetFoundry has improved the process of creating a customer edge router that requires to also run a tunneller endpoint on it. For all network versions starting from 7.3.28, a router endpoint will be automatically created and registered for every customer edge router that is created and registered. This release was published on June 29th 2021.
Edge Router - Created and registered:
Corresponding endpoint is auto created and provisioned on the same edge router
Note that this endpoint cannot be edited or deleted. You can also note that for the endpoint that's created, the App ID is ziti-router and endpoint type is Router.
Service creation is further simplified:
While creating a simple service you can select endpoint hosted and select the corresponding endpoint or endpoints. Router hosted services is being retired for new ERs that are provisioned post 29th June 2021 on network versions 7.3.28 and above. Since the router endpoint is available, advanced services can also be created to support IP / Port ranges.
Edge routers can now be added to the APPWANs via corresponding router endpoints in addition to device endpoints
You can continue to host simple services on customer edge routers provisioned before 29th June 2021.
Multiple process check - Posture Check
Process check - under "Posture Checks" now supports Multiple Processes. At least one of the processes active is required to pass the posture check. Example below checks that the device is running one of the two antivirus processes.
Re-issue of expired endpoint tokens:
The console now offers the option of regenerating registration tokens for endpoints whose tokens expired without registration.
Free Trial - 14 days:
