PepVPN backward compatibility option is no longer available. By deprecating the old firmware versions, we now have a more secure handshake channel as the default setting, only TLS 1.2 will be accepted, no more TLS 1.0 and 1.1 for the old devices. Thus, if you are using devices running Firmware 6.1 or older, you will no longer be able to form PepVPN tunnels with those devices unless the firmware is updated.
Internet Explorer 11 is no longer supported by Web Admin.
For Firmware 7.0.1
PepVPN Route Isolation is Not Backwards Compatible: If users are using PepVPN Route Isolation, they should upgrade all the devices in the network to 7.0.1 or 6.3.4.
For Firmware 7
PepVPN Firmware Compatibility Change: Devices running Firmware 7 will only form PepVPN connections with devices running Firmware 6.1 or later. Firmware 6.0 or earlier are deprecated.
Firmware Downgrade is Unavailable for the BR1, BR1 ENT, BR1 Slim, and Transit: Please note that once Firmware 7 is installed on those, it will not be possible to downgrade to Firmware 6 or below. Dual-boot with older Firmware is still supported, but each Firmware slot will not accept earlier Firmware once it contains Firmware 7.
After Partitioning a MediaFast Router, Running Previous Firmware will completely Clear the Cache: Please note that once you create partitions on any MFA router, running 6.3.3 or below will cause the router to clear the entire cache.
