Resolved Issues

The table below lists the resolved issues in R77.20.87:

ID Description
In locally managed mode, route-based VPN tunnels might fail to establish.
SMB-8568 Restore settings from file operation fails.
SMB-9190 When Identify Awareness and Threat Prevention are both enabled, the 'sfwd' process might crash periodically, causing issues such as not being able to access the Security Logs page in the WebUI.
SMB-9227 Added a CLI option for "keep-connections-open-after-policy-installation" for UDP/TCP services.
When a WAN-LAN bridge is configured, infected hosts do not appear in reports.
SMB-9377 Implemented a stronger admin password hash algorithm than the one present in version R77.20.85 and higher. Refer to sk155172
 SMB-9232 The user cannot configure Gateway load thresholds in the WebUI. Applying threshold settings results in an "Unknown field" error. Refer to sk154132
SMB-8971 Added support for SNMP OID and its matching trap OID that indicates connection to the Log Server.
In centrally managed appliances, the Gateway cannot pull the SSL Network Extender package from the User Center.
SMB-8917 Corrected incorrect description for trap OID Trap is triggered upon VLAN removal and not 'Interface unassigned.'"
SMB-9298 When you attempt to import an internal CA that uses the ECDSA algorithm (e.g., ECC), the process fails and the core is generated. Refer to sk154152.
SMB-9427 In specific scenarios, the WebUI did not load properly on Internet Explorer 11, Windows 7.
SMB-9637 When activating Identity Sharing on a centrally managed appliance, the pep and pdp daemons may not respond.



ID Description
Added a new advanced option in locally managed appliances ("Connection Persistence") which prevents VPN disconnections after changing any VPN-related configuration. Refer to sk155352.


Known Limitations

The table below lists known limitations in R77.20.87:

ID Description
When the user changes the WebUI access port, the Reach My Device service only works after rebooting. Therefore, connected WatchTower applications are not able to reach the gateway.
SMB-9214 In rare cases, a new installation may have a problem with the internal CA certificate in the Security Gateway/cluster object, which causes an error message "This site can't be reached" to appear when trying to connect to the captive portal (user check portal, internal CA portal, browser based authentication portal).

Solution: Renew the internal CA certificate.
