non-critical security vulnerabilities.
Add the ability to configure a limit on the number of unique VLAN IDs that
are assigned to a single RADIUS Called-Station-Id MAC address (e.g., an
access point). This facilitates the deployment of a large number of VLANs
throughout a WiFi network even when the hardware VLAN ID limit of a single
access point (e.g., 32) could otherwise be exceeded in high density areas.RADIUS Accounting should be enabled on the WLAN NAS for optimal control.
RADIUS Server Accounting Logs are now created for requests that do not have
an associated Account (e.g., when using “MAC auth” for dynamic VLANs).
Add new “Log Hits Trigger” feature to detect malicious behavior from
end-user devices against the FUSION’s HTTP(S) and SSH services. The trigger
enforces a configurable maximum number of HTTP(S) requests to the web
portal and/or admin console, or failed SSH authentication attempts, within
a configurable window of time.Max Connections and DPI Triggers may now be configured with a MAC Group as
the Transient Group Membership target.

The RADIUS server now recognizes if a MAC address associated with a request
is a member of a MAC Group via Transient Group Membership. This enables all
event trigger types to change a device’s effective RADIUS Policy, and thus
VLAN assignment or lack-thereof.

All Triggers may now be configured to optionally flush a device’s packet
states, DHCP leases, ARP entries, and/or VLAN assignments when
transitioning to/from a Transient Group Membership. Previously, only packet
states were always flushed by default.

API resource.
Improve PMS interface behavior to better support situations where a single
guest entity in the PMS is checked into more than one room at the same
time. If per-Guest Account sharing is enabled, guests with multiple rooms
who purchase usage and create an Account for one room now correctly reuse
that Account when signing in with the other room number.Fix bug where per-Room Account sharing allowed the same logical PMS Guest
with different PMS Rooms to use the same Account.

Add per-Guest as a Dynamic VLAN assignment option, enabling the grouping of
devices into a single VLAN for each logical PMS Guest name instead of by
PMS Room number.

Update IEEE and IANA databases for MAC address vendor and port service lookup.
Custom Email substitution objects are now available as local ruby variables
within ERB context. For example: “<%= device_option.domain_name %>” is now
equivalent to “%device_option.domain_name%”.

and/or rewrite) when using multiple Uplinks having a configured span
greater than one (i.e., multiple usable public IPs).
Exclude RADIUS Server Accounting Logs from backups when including historical
user activity is not desired.
SSL Certificate Signing Requests, Certificate Authorities, and self-signed
certificates are now signed with an SHA-256 hash instead of SHA-1. Local
Certificate Authorities now employ a 2048-bit key length.

Improve security of the DNS server (BIND).
Add the ability to dynamically assign Bidirectional NATs (BiNATs) to
devices in desired Groups/Policies via a new configuration scaffold named
“Dynamic BiNAT Pools”.All Devices of an Account are NATed to the same public IP as the first
Device with a dynamic BiNAT assignment. This allows the Account’s desired
BiNAT Device to behave similar to a typical residential gateway’s “DMZ”

Accounts and Usage Plans now have a “max BiNATs” configuration parameter to
limit the number of Devices in a given Account that may be assigned a
BiNAT. Devices now have a BiNAT checkbox configuration, which permits the
Device to be assigned a BiNAT from an appropriate Dynamic BiNAT Pool. This

temporarily assigned to th wrong Uplink, which can persist incorrectly for
connection states that last a long time (e.g., VoIP sessions).
Update the bash shell to the latest version to address concern over the
“Shellshock” vulnerability. Note that the FUSION platform was never vulnerable
to Shellshock and other similar exploits because bash is not utilized for
anything other than the Admin SSH environment. Attempting to sneak
maliscious code into environment variables and execute it via the web server
or other services is not and never was possible.
Add the ability to disable sending database resync request messages to
Comtrol UHLL PMS Servers.

Long integers in generated reports are now more human-readable.

Fix bug that caused portal failure Health Notice “undefined method
‘lock_devices?’ for nil:NilClass”.
Increase web server performance in development mode.
Add a precedence field to RADIUS Attribute Pattern configuration, which
enables the operator to assign priorities to different RADIUS attributes
when matching authentication requests to RADIUS Server Realm configurations.The RADIUS server now enforces Account Group, MAC Group, and RADIUS
Attribute Pattern precedences relative to each other when matching a request
to a configured realm, instead of the previous behavior where the precedence
order was always Account, then MAC Group, and lastly RADIUS Attribute
Pattern. This enables the operator to have greater control over how dynamic
VLANs are assigned based on the RADIUS request.

Accounts belonging to a Policy without a configured RADIUS Server Realm are
now ignored when matching RADIUS authentication requests to a realm (e.g., a
MAC Group or RADIUS Attribute Pattern matching the request is used instead).

Fix bug affecting RADIUS Realm logins.
Add the ability to search the various Transaction scaffolds by amount via a
range operator (e.g., >=).

Documentation additions for RESTful API.
Upgrade web server application framework to Ruby on Rails 3.2.6.
Add the ability to report on PF Queues instruments (realtime speed) and
archives (quota/transferred) by Group for group-specific queues (i.e., a
Bandwidth Queue with a sharing shaping option set to “Group” or “IP”).
Enables the operator to report on byte/packet utilization by Group in
addition to Policy, User, etc.
Replace the Bandwidth Queue per-user checkbox option with the ability to
configure how a queue configuration is provisioned and shared. Available
options are “IP”, “Group”, and “Policy”.”IP” defines a unique queue for each IP (session). This is the same as the
old “per-user” behavior.

“Group” specifies a unique queue for each Group + Policy, where each group
is provisioned its own queue.

“Policy” specifies a unique queue for each Policy, where multiple groups
having the same policy share the queue, but every policy has its own queue.
This is the same as the old aggregate behavior (“per-user” unchecked).

Support anonymous IPsec pre-shared-key authentication.
Addition of a new HTML Injection recipe: ad element overlay.This recipe will overlay a div element on top of standard IAB ad sizes
defined in the Universal Ad Package (UAP) Profile. The div element will
take up the full size of the ad. There is a 5 second delay before the ad
overlays become visible. Sizes are as follows:

320×250 : Medium Rectangle, 180×150 : Rectangle, 160×600 : Skyscraper,
728×90 : Leaderboard.

The content in the HTML injection needs to be able to self-adjust to the
size of the ad being overlayed. Optionally, the rotator service can be
used to pull content that is size specific for the ad being overlayed.

In order to use the rotator service, there needs to be a rotator setup for
each standard ad size. The name of the URNs for the rotators should be:
320×250, 180×150, 160×600, 728×90. If a URN is missing for an ad size, an
error will be displayed in the ad frame. In addition to the rotator config,
the following code needs to be placed in to the HTML Injection:

<script type=’text/javascript’>

Override the default CSS for the overlay element by adding the following to
the CSS in the configuration for the HTML Injection:

#rxg_var_injected_floating_overlay {
/* Custom CSS here… */

By default a close button is shown on the overlayed content. To remove the
close button, add the following to the CSS in the HTML Injection:

#rxg_var_red_sphere {
display: none;

Upgrade web server application framework to Ruby on Rails 3.2.4.
Upgrade base OS to FreeBSD 8.3.
Move display of regular-expression-based URL rewriting GUI to the
interstitial redirection view.
Improve floating overlay injection recipe. Remove background-image from
div elements. Simplify the HTML. The position option in the configuration
now properly positions the floating element using the following:top => top, right
left => top, left
bottom => bottom, left
right => bottom, right

Override the default CSS for the floating element by adding the following to
the CSS in the configuration for the injection:

#rxg_var_injected_floating_overlay {
/* Custom CSS here… */

Improve virtual frames injection recipe. No longer insert banner into
windows/frames that are smaller than 640×480. This prevents the injection
from covering content within little frames/windows that are inside another
page.No longer require SSL for the rotator controller.
Fix rare fatal backend error: “avoid illegal attempt to update using time
… (minimum one second step)”
Fix “ArgumentError (invalid byte sequence in UTF-8)” errors when the portal

Add the ability to search on specific fields and date/time ranges for larger
scaffolds to facilitate reporting. Affects scaffolds that fall under the
Identities, Billing, and Archives pages of the web admin console.
Don’t create health notices for “ping failed to bind to address…” errors.
Add the ability to flush all packet filter states for a given IP by clicking
“flush” on a row in the States scaffold having the desired “Src IP”.

custom portal’s Sass stylesheet contained invalid CSS. Create a Health
Notice when an error is detected during web server asset precompilation.
Support entering in the URL of a users browser as a valid method for
logout. This requires that be configured as a Network Address.
Avoid captive portal exceptions of the form: “undefined method `model_name’
for NilClass:Class” when calling fields_for on SecretQuestion and
SecretAnswer objects.
Fix bug where the date/time field could be lost when editing an existing
record via scaffold (e.g., a Shared Credential Group’s expiration time).Default a new Shared Credential Group’s lifetime to one week starting from the
current day, and enhance the scaffold UI.
Fix error when trying to create a RADIUS Server Attribute before a RADIUS
Server Realm.
Resolve issues where HTTP upload queueing and link control were not always
correctly enforced when an HTML Payload Rewrite was configured.
No longer flush all connection states when a configuration change is made.
States may need to be flushed manually for existing connections to
immediately adhere to new policy changes. Resolves issues where the web

with a remote host could be cut after making certain configuration changes.
Users UI scaffold enhancements.
Add global search feature to the web admin console.
Minor database performance optimization and deadlock prevention.
Randomly generate div tag ids and other variable names within the code that
is utilized by the HTML injection feature.

uplinks instead of just the primary. Fixes bug where a Ping Target could be
temporarily marked as down when the primary uplink goes down.
Fix bug where Uplinks / Ping Targets would get marked down when not actually
down on systems with slower CPUs.
Fix bug where multiple Zoom buttons could appear at the top of a
configuration scaffold.
Add the ability to configure Admin Roles with fine-grain control over the
scaffolds an Admin is permitted to access. This allows the operator to
restrict an Admin to only one or more scaffolds (e.g., a support Admin
account with access to only the Users configuration scaffold).
Upgrade web server application framework to Ruby on Rails 3.2.3.
Fix bug in the default portal where new user signup could return back to the
index/previous view when there was an error with form submission.
Fix bug where the captive portal’s post-login behavior was incorrect when a
remote Splash Portal and local Landing Portal, or vice-versa, was configured.Support %render_…% variables in addition to %redirect_…% variables in
portal remote URL configurations.
Fix rare memory leak in the web admin console.
Avoid captive portal exceptions of the form: “undefined method `model_name’
for NilClass:Class” when calling form_for on User and PaymentMethod objects.
Add captive portal feature that logs-out an end-user’s session when she
surfs to “user.logout” (or a similar domain ending in “.logout”). Requires
the end-user to be using the FUSION’s built-in DNS server, which must have a
DNS zone and record configured for “user.logout” (or similar record) that
resolves to the FUSION’s IP.Automatically create a “.logout” zone and “user.logout” record by default.
Try to avoid portal exception: “ActiveRecord::RecordNotFound: Couldn’t find User with id=…”
caused by portal login race conditions.
Splash Portal whitelists now permit UDP traffic in addition to TCP.

Precedence option instead of at the very end after the membership option(s).

Add “Membership” sub-form elements to the MAC Group and IP Group create/edit

Ignore guest check-in messages received from a PMS Server that contain a
blank name AND ID number. Fixes issue where useless PMS Guest records end up
in the FUSION’s guest database when the PMS interface is misconfigured.

purchased has automatic login enabled.
Fix rare exception when the PMS Guest database contains a guest with a blank
Fix rare exception within the defaults creation routine during an upgrade when
one or more IPsec Specification records exist without an IPsec Server option
(i.e., the operator deleted the default IPsec Server).
Include WISPr XML block in the default portal’s layout to better accommodate
non-standard WISPr clients that choose to ignore the login information
parameters presented along with the initial captive portal redirect (HTTP
status 302).
Add “twice-daily” (every 12 hours) as an available Usage Plan recurring
interval setting.
Change the JavaScript used in the default portal’s slide show to be
compatible with IE9.
Tweak memory footprint of the web server.
Add the ability to configure a Token’s usage expiration time to be
dynamically set relative to the first login event, which supersedes the
configured expiration timestamp or “no expiration” setting. This allows the
operator to create a batch of Tokens with a finite and absolute shelf-life
that also changes for an individual Token upon its first use.Improve usability of the Tokens scaffold UI.
Add a new global Network Option to disable prioritization of TCP ACKs and
packets with a TOS of lowdelay. Previously this was always enabled without
configurability and is still enabled by default. Disabling fixes issue where
packets with a non-standard TOS value may be queued incorrectly.
Fix bug where Tokens were considered for lock MAC purposes, causing an
exception when an end-user having a User account with a locked MAC address
tried to login via a Token credential.
Fix rare bug where sometimes routing was not immediately enabled after
installing a new license key.
Fix bug resulting in “execute on disconnected handle” errors after some
Fix rare bug where traffic statistics instrumentation for graphing purposes

Don’t issue health notices for DNS Pools with a maximum of one lease.
Tweak DNS Zone and DNS Record scaffold defaults.
Gracefully redirect a browser to an HTTPS (SSL) URL of the admin console or
captive portal if an HTTP (non-SSL) connection is attempted, instead of
outright blocking the connection.
Reduce memory footprint of the web server.
Add support for multilingual Custom Portals via the Rails
Internationalization (I18n) API.Custom localization files may now exist within a portal’s “locales”
directory and may be utilized to provide translations for strings throughout
a portal. Entire layouts and views may also be customized based upon locale.

I18n.locale is now automatically set to the end-user’s browser preference
and may be changed by including the “locale” parameter with a link. Missing
translations fallback to the english default when in production mode.

Add an initial english locale file and some examples to the default portal.

Fix for “undefined method `model_name’ for NilClass:Class” error in the
user_info view of the captive portal.
Fix bug where SOAP API requests to port 448 were being blocked.

requests a MIME type resulting in a format unknown to rails.
Fix fatal exception in the captive portal while trying to render a view when
an offsite Landing Portal is configured.
Automatically forward packets destined for port 448 on the FUSION to port 80,
which is necessary to support XML SOAP API requests from Eleven Wireless
When a configuration record is marked “active” or “default”, and another
active/default record already exists, automatically unset/de-activate the
other record instead of displaying a validation error. Allows the operator
to mark a configuration record the active/default for a given scaffold
without first having to modify the existing active/default record. Also
applies to configuring which Network, System, or Accounting Graph is
displayed on the Instruments dashboard.
Add an archives permission option to Admin Roles configuration and split up
permission assignment between archives and instruments accordingly, instead
of the instruments permission setting covering both.Fix bug where the Policy and Network summary diagrams, Quota Summary
report, and Web Proxy report ignored an Admin’s role permissions.
Add the ability to configure a “primary” Network Address for a particular
Interface or VLAN, thereby dictating the “first” IP to be configured on the
corresponding network adapter. For the case of an Uplink, this affects what
IP should be used to access the FUSION and which IP(s) are used as a NAT and/or
BiNat pool. Previously this behavior was determined by the order in which
Network Addresses were created via the configuration scaffold.
Fix bug causing an FUSION to become inaccessible after adding many Network
Addresses associated with a single Uplink.
Fix fatal exception in the captive portal when a User attempts to purchase a
Usage Plan without an existing Payment Method.
Fix minor bugs and layout issues with the quick_purchase template in the
default captive portal.
Fix bug causing DHCP Fixed Hosts to not work properly when configured
inside an autoincrement network having no associated DHCP Pools.
Add an SMB file share feature, providing operators with an alternative to
SSH for accessing and updating various files on the FUSION filesystem via the
SMB 2 protocol. Most importantly, this provides a simpler, although
less-secure, way of uploading changes to Custom Portals.The following named shares are available:

admin login – the admin’s home directory

“backups” – routine backups (read only)

“logs” – raw log files (read only)

“portals” – custom portals (read/write)

“tftp” – TFTP boot directory (read/write)

e.g., \\rxg.local\portals, smb://rxg.local/portals, \\rxg.local\ncr

The SMB service is disabled and blocked by default. SMB access may be
enabled for select admins via an “SMB” checkbox in the Admin Roles scaffold,
similar to allowing SSH. A new SMB Servers scaffold has been added to the
System->Admins page of the web admin console, where specific hosts must be
explicitly given access to the SMB service by configuring a new record with
the appropriate Policies and/or WAN Targets.

Existing Admins must also update their passwords for SMB access to function.

Change the default portal layouts title attributes to read the controller
name of the Custom Portal (i.e., @portal_name.titleize) instead of a static
“Default Portal” or “Default Mobile Portal”.
Fix bug where the web server could not be restarted in “development” mode
after some upgrades.
Add a “Policy mode” option to Port Forwarding scaffolds, where the operator
is able to configure how forwarding behaves when a Policy has more than one
member (a Group with more than one active IP address).Available options are:

first – Only the first member of a Policy has the forwarding applied.

round-robin – Forwarding is performed by load balancing in a round-robin
fashion, which was the old default behavior.

autoincrement – The destination port of the configured Address is
incremented by one for each member of the Policy and used to filter against
a packet’s destination port. This allows for simple configuration of a
forward that redirects packets to multiple LAN devices behind an rXg, to a
single port on the LAN device, where the target LAN device depends upon the
packet’s original destination port. e.g., configuring port forwards for
managing many WLAN APs behind a FUSION.

Tweak the amount of disk space utilized by traffic graphing statistics to
improve cluster controller performance at large deployments.
Support a single FUSION Forward or Transit Traffic Forward record with an
Application having more than one desination port or range of ports.
Duplicate some of the Identities->Definitions scaffolds throughout the admin
console. Insert an Applications scaffold in the Packet Filters and Packet
Forwards Policy pages. Insert Content Filter Lists and Remote Content Filter
Lists scaffolds in the Content Filtering Policy page. Insert a DPI
Signatures scaffold in the Event Triggers Policy page.
Fix display issue where the FUSION and Transit Traffic Forward scaffolds
contained an unconfigurable “Direction” field.
Allow the operator to configure the exact time and/or date that a Routine
Backup is executed, instead of always being relative to when the
configuration was first made.
Add a “Now” link to a Routine Backups record that immediately triggers a
backup (to the remote servers and locally). Useful for verifying a Backup
Server’s configuration after making changes.
Usability tweaks to the sizes of textarea fields throughout the admin
Prevent upgrading to a new software build that exceeds the maximum build an
FUSION is currently licensed for.
Fix bug that broke uploading a Routine Backup to a Backup Server via FTP
when the remote path was blank.
Fix bug that sometimes broke searching for a Policy by IP address on the
policies summary graph page of the admin console.
Increase default size of ‘note’ field in the admin console.
Permit creation of a DNS Server record without an Uplink association.
Add a “static port” configurability checkbox to the NATs scaffold, which
allows the operator to change the behavior from symmetric NAT to cone
NAT, where a packet’s source port is never modified during translation.
Update MAC address vendor lookup table with latest IEEE OUI listing.
Add a “blanket block” mode to the content filtering feature that allows the
operator to block the end-user from all sites except those configured in a
whitelist. Also allow the page the end-user is redirected to upon denial to
be configured to a captive portal action other than the “content_filter”
Fix bug that broke content filtering whitelists when configuring more than
one WAN Target per Content Filter Policy.
Fix bug causing an exception when trying to create an IP Group without an
initial name and IP member(s).
Change default Device Option backend timing from 500ms to 2500ms when
installed on hardware having an Intel Atom processor.
Fix bug that prevented administrator SSH access.
Release USB memory stick installer as an alternative to CDROM.
Fix bug that prevented PMS authentication.
Fix bug where updating a record’s note field via a nested scaffold did not
take effect (e.g., updating a MAC’s note through the MAC Groups scaffold).
Fix minor aesthetic issue with the very bottom of the web admin console.
Include support for the “music preference” field (DFID 321) in the Comtrol
UHLL PMS interface, and map it to the custom0 field of a PMS Guest.
Add the ability to configure the property, controller, store, cashier, and
terminal identifiers of a PMS Server interface. Currently used by only the
Agilysys LMS interface.
When an end-user guest inputs a room number to the portal, don’t remove
non-leading/trailing whitespace before authenticating it with the PMS
Server. Strip only leading and trailing whitespace.
Add the ability to lock a MAC address to a User, preventing the end-user
from creating another User through the same device. Adds a configurable
checkbox to the Users and Usage Plans scaffolds.May require modification of existing Custom Portal controllers to function
Increase a LandingPortal’s maximum allowed session duration from 24 hours to
31 days.
Avoid rare database exception.
Permit configuring a PMS Guest Match to have equal minimum and maximum
transactions, allowing the operator to match just a single transaction.
Database performance optimizations and deadlock prevention.
Add unix admin accounts to the wheel group to allow root access without
prior needing to become the rgnets user.
Add a release changelog to the manual, dating back to build 4.745/FreeBSD 8.2.
Support for Comtrol UHLL specification compliant PMS interfaces.Various PMS interface enhancements.
Fix backend bill_users daemon exception when billing a User:
bill_users – error billing user: ActiveRecord::RecordInvalid: Validation failed: Time must be less than or equal to 525949.Likely caused by a UsagePlan that is set to rollover a User’s
usage_minutes, and the rollover code tried to set her usage_minutes
past the validation maximum (one year).
Fix actionwebserivce (soap API) “wsdl” action.Fix routing for /SOAP mapping to /soap.
Fix issue where sometimes web server doesn’t restart in production or
development mode correctly when the mode is toggled via System->Portals view.
Validate presence of first_name and last_name in User model, such
that corresponding field labels in the scaffold create form are
automatically bolded. Note that fields were already required
implicitly by validating the length.
Now that datetime columns in scaffold create forms default as
blank/nil (until datepicker icon is clicked), validate that a User,
Token, or UsagePlan’s absolute usage_expiration is left blank if
unlimited/never is checked. Previously, if unlimited/never was
checked, the datetime value was automatically set to nil, because
there was no way for the operator to configure a nil value via the
set of date/time select fields. This prevents the operator from
incorrectly changing a datetime configuration from unlimited/never
to an absolute value, when unlimited/never is still set.
Enabled batch update of coupon expiration, now that the calendar_date_select
form is compatible with batch_update.
Add javascript datepicker for all scaffold datetime form columns, instead of
multiple select fields.
Make html_injections.css column type “text” instead of “string”, thereby
making the corresponding scaffold form element a textarea instead of a textbox.
Wait longer for rails web server instance to load to support slow hardware.
In RedirectorController, ignore (bailout from) requests with a
format other than “html” such that the requesting client doesn’t
hit PortalController with a non-html format, sometimes resulting
in a MissingTemplate exception. Also likely increases portal performance.
Rename the CGI parameter that is read to override the rendering
format of PortalController from :format to :rails_format. e.g., to
force :mobile format, now append ?rails_format=mobile instead of
?format=mobile to the URL, and similarly for html.Necessary because “format” was too simple, and some URLs that were
redirected to the captive portal included the “format” parameter,
which caused PortalController#set_format_from_params_or_session to
change request.format to something nonsensical. this sometimes
caused ActionView::MissingTemplate exceptions (e.g., upon the index
view, because only index.html.erb and existed, and
not the other bogus/unknown format).
Fix payment_methods scaffold cc_expiration_year_form_column helper. Resolves
issue where a new PaymentMethod could not be created post rails3.
Add scaffold batch update feature.Currently implemented for only the following scaffolds:
users, tokens, coupons, and all group variants

For each scaffold, specify a set of columns for bulk_update that
is a subset of the usual update form columns and that the operator
will likely want to bulk change.

Only singular associations are batch update-able
(e.g., a User’s UsagePlan but not her user_groups).

Require a SharedCredentialGroup to have a credential
Add batch select and destroy feature to all scaffolds (having update ability)
Fix bug causing interstitial redirection to fail when the target
URL did not contain a ‘/’ character.
Fix bug causing the uplink_assignments scaffold to not have an inline
link to the related Uplink scaffold.Fix issues with WeightedUplink/UplinkAssignment
allocation algorithm. consider that a single end-user IP should be
assigned different uplinks if her Policy is related to a WeightedUplink
that is Application/WanTarget specific and contains only a single Uplink,
and another more-general Policy that includes said Uplink plus many
more uplinks (i.e., count a unique IP+Application(s)+WanTarget(s)
combination as a weight instead of just IP).
Modify credit adjustment of plans in quick_purchase_charge to allow
for % adjustments of the price for the selected usage plan.
Fix bug with display of quick_purchase view. Add ability to pass credit
parameter in quick purchase form. Allows for custom portal modifications
to modify the price of a plan on the fly (e.g. for promotional codes).
Remove AdminRole#forward_root_emails column and associated
configurability (“OS emails” checkbox).The “root” mail alias no longer exists (i.e., FUSION Admins will no longer
receive emails sent to the root unix user). this is to prevent FUSION Admins
from receiving postmaster emails, security run output, and other stuff that
gets sent to root and has been deemed useless and/or confusing for the FUSION

Add an “admin” email alias (in /etc/mail/aliases). FUSION Admins belonging to
an AdminRole that is associated with a CustomEmail for the
“health_notice_create” event will be a part of this alias.

Change root’s cron configuration to email output to the local “admin” user
(i.e., Admins alias) instead of the root user. this ensures that check_rxgd
output is still emailed to FUSION Admins that should know about it (i.e.,
receive HealthNotice creation notifications).

Change admin_roles scaffold create/update forms to use the record_select
form UI type for custom_emails, instead of the massive list of checkboxes
which is mostly unusable.

Change admin_roles scaffold’s custom_emails list column to display number of
“notification” emails and “user” emails (those having send_to_user set).

Ignore HealthNotice with “IP has already been taken” validation error from
within backend ruby daemons (e.g., race condition between backend and
frontend automatic login).
When matching end-user input against a PmsGuest’s name, check if the input

Fix LoginSession timeout due to Interim-Update-Timeout.
Timeout “stale” RadiusServer login_sessions (i.e., try to automatically
destroy sessions on an FUSION RADIUS server that we haven’t received
an accounting Stop for).The timeout interval is currently implicitly configured by the
presence of an ‘Acct-Interim-Interval’ RadiusServerAttribute.
sessions are destroyed when we haven’t seen an accounting packet
(i.e., created a RadiusServerAccountingLog with a type of ‘Start’
or ‘Interim-Update’) for the session in the last (2 * Acct-Interim-Interval)

This essentially completes support for interim updates on the server
side, as the last-received Interim-Update will have set the
LoginSession’s usage values to a last-known state, which will be
deducted from the User upon destruction due to timeout.

hostname is always undefined. all other attributes (e.g., expiration) are
derived from the related User’s usage values.A User’s LoginSession’s byte/packet counters are updated upon
receiving an accounting Interim-Update or Stop.

An accounting Stop logs out (i.e., destroys) the LoginSession, which
deducts usage from the User, exactly like with non-RADIUS configurations.

Destroying a RadiusServer’s LoginSession does NOT notify the RADIUS NAS.

login_sessions for a RADIUS server are distinguishable by the persence of a
relation to a configured RadiusServer record (“RADIUS Server Realm”).

radius_server_accounting_logs are now related to the relevant
LoginSession and/or LoginSessionLog.

Acct-Session-Time attribute should be present in Interim-Update packets.
Add interim updates column to radius_realms scaffold list.
RADIUS Realm (NAS) interim accounting support:Add boolean to RadiusRealm that enables sending Interim-Update

Move vlan_tag_assignments and expired_vlan_tag_assignments scaffolds to the
top of their respective menu pages.
Fix bug where rxgd was overwriting (inadvertently unsetting) a VTA’s
“expired” column when it was “marked to expire prematurely” by the
radius hook. somtimes caused there to be two or more VTAs assigned
to a single MAC address when an end-user switched RadiusServer
policies (i.e., SSIDs).
Wait 15m after marking a VTA to expire prematurely (i.e., when an
end-user switches RadiusServer policies) to prevent immediate
re-assignment to someone else.Don’t completely destroy a “marked to expire” /30 VTA if there is somehow
still a (new) DHCP lease on its VLAN.

Add expired boolean to VTAs scaffold.

Don’t re-assign VTAs that were marked to expire.
Show seconds for start/end/flushed_at columns in dhcp_leases and
expired_dhcp_leases scaffolds.
Dynamic VLAN changes:Set the cluster_node_id of a new VlanTagAssignment to the ClusterNode of the
associatied Vlan record instead of the node running the freeradius hook.
should permit cluster nodes to expire their own VTAs.

If a RadiusServer is configured with more than one Vlan record,
balance-out vlan_tag_assignments between them all, in proportion
to the ratio of the number of existing VTAs to the number of possible
VLAN tags (i.e., select the Vlan with the most free tags or fewest
“oversubscribed” tags).

Change VTA tag selection algorithm when reuse_vlans is NOT set.
instead of always selecting the next available VLAN tag with the
lowest number, select the next available tag that is numerically
after the last assigned tag, rolling over if needed. Circumvents
issues where a VTA that was recently expired prematurely (e.g., due
to an end-user switching RadiusServer policies) is quickly re-assigned
to a new end-user, making things problematic if the original VTA
owner somehow ends up back on the VLAN without us knowing (e.g.,
due to AP hardware caching WLAN client to VLAN ID).

Permit restoring an FUSION that is not licensed.
Increase time it takes for admin menu dropdown to disappear from 500ms to 100ms.
Fix creation of ExpiredDhcpLease when flushing an active lease
Don’t assign a VTA for a /30 VLAN if there is already a DHCP lease
for the /30 client IP, which can happen when an end-user ends up
connected to a VLAN even when there is no VTA for said VLAN tag.

VTA expiration / DHCP lease tweaks:When considering to expire a VTA, in addition to requiring the VTA’s
MAC doesn’t map to an IP according to MacIpMapping logic, also
require that there are no leases for the VTA’s MAC AND its IP (if
/30 VLAN). basically, don’t ever expire a VTA if there is somehow
still a DHCP lease, even if MacIpMapping is misconfigured (i.e.,
doesn’t include ‘dhcp’), or somehow there is a lease for a /30
client IP for a MAC other than that of the VTA.

Similar to above change, when pre-maturely expiring a VTA due to
the end-user switching RadiusServer policies, flush all DHCP leases
for the MAC AND the /30 client IP (if /30 VLAN).

Don’t redundantly flush DHCP leases when expiring a VTA normally, as a VTA
cannot be expired normally with leases present.

When finally deleting a VTA that was “marked to expire” due to a
RadiusServer/Policy switch, don’t flush DHCP leases again, as this could
potentially flush leases that should exist. note that this wasn’t actually
working anyways. implicitly continues to avoid primary key conflict race

Trigger ExpireVlanTagAssignments Task when expire_vlan_tags are
touched, in order to process “marked to expire” VTAs faster.

When destroying a VTA that was marked to expire at a previous time, don’t
re-flush DHCP leases for that MAC, as the client likely already has a
different lease on a different VLAN.When expiring a VTA for a /30 network, always delete any DHCP leases for the
single usable IP on the /30 subnet, in addition to any DHCP leases matching
the holder’s MAC.
Avoid rendering the current action’s view in
PortalController#render_last_action_or_default. fixes rare portal exceptions,
e.g., “NoMethodError: undefined method `sort_by!’ for #<Array:0x80efcef98>”
Go back to sorting dhcp_messages by timestamp instead of record id because
sometimes the id order is not at all representative of the timestamp. Dealing
with lack of precision beyond seconds in timestamp is preferable.
In RADIUS server, when an end-user switches between RadiusServer
policies, instead of expiring the existing VTA immediately, mark
it for rxgd to delete later during the periodic expiration task.
still mark any associated DHCP leases to be flushed immediately.
ensures rxgd flushes the DHCP lease(s) and restarts dhcpd before
the VTA is assigned to someone else. fixes issue where a VTA can
be immediately assigned to another end-user before the previous
end-user’s DHCP lease is flushed, thereby resulting in a “no free
leases” situation.
Add PMS Guest Matches feature.

and /boot/loader.conf) for serial console unless a serial device is present.
package post-install script no longer deals with this (i.e., disable serial
console output on first boot after ISO install). Likely fixes issue where a
system without a serial port would not boot.
Fix bug where the “FUSION” packet filter table (i.e., <FUSION>) included only the
first address of an Uplink having a span greater than 1. fixes issue where
outbound DNS requests from a NATed end-user client to a non-FUSION DNS server
were blocked when the translation IP was not the first uplink address.
Don’t redundantly automatically login a User within PortalController if she
is already “logged in”.
Automatic login configurability in LandingPortal. Fixes issue where there
was no way for the portal to automatically login an end-user to the portal
application (i.e., set session[:user_id]) when the end-user already had an
active LoginSession.”MAC + cookie” is the current behavior.
“MAC” means set session[:user_id] based on finding a User with the client’s
MAC (i.e., ignore lack of cookie).
