ID Description 
SMB-14342 InfinitySOC (sk164332) is supported from R80.20.25 in Locally managed mode. It is possible to enable the InfinitySOC feature in Web UI or Gaia Clish. For instructions, see the R80.20.25 Locally Managed Administration Guide.
SMB-14610 Starting in R80.20.25: In locally-managed mode, traffic from VPN Remote Access clients toward the Internet is matched on the "Outgoing access to the Internet" Rule Base if "Route Internet traffic from connected clients through this gateway" is selected. This allows Application Control and URL Filtering enforcement for this traffic.

To restore the previous behavior, do one of these actions:
  • In the WebUI - Under Advanced Settings, set "VPN Remote Access - Match on Internal rulebase only" to "true".
  • In CLI -  Run this command:
set vpn remote-access advanced-settings internal-rulebase-only true
SMB-14661 Starting from R80.20.25, you can enforce Application Control and URL Filtering on VPN Site-to-Site traffic, when VPN peers route their Internet traffic through the gateway.

To configure, enable Outgoing Rule Base matching for that traffic in one of these ways:
  • From the WebUI:
Under "Advanced Settings", set "VPN Site to Site global settings - Match Internet traffic on the Outgoing rulebase" to "true".
  • From CLI:
set vpn site-to-site advanced-settings outgoing-rulebase-match true
SMB-13949 A "Path MTU Discovery" utility was added to check for ICMP messages that indicate the correct MTU to set for the cellular interface. The utility is disabled by default but can be enabled in the Advanced Settings page.
SMB-14554 Added an "Advanced Settings" flag that forces the internal cellular modem to register to the 4G (LTE) network.
SMB-14818 In locally-managed mode, nmap queries are sent to devices connected to the local network to collect device details for display on the Active Devices page.
Starting in R80.20.25, to disable this proactive querying, run this clish command:
set privacy-settings advanced-settings proactive-device-details false
