NX Series (X200) NX/MCP/DVX/DGX Master Firmware v1.5.68

Note: this is an old version. The current version is: NX Series (X200) NX/MCP/DVX/DGX Master Firmware v1.6.175. ×

Last Updated: Mar 14, 2018

Prerequisites:
When upgrading from 1.3.106 or earlier, you must first upgrade to 1.4.90.

Programming Information:

  • Use of these new Authentication keywords requires Netlinx.axi v1.62.
  • The NetLinx language supports the following new Authentication keywords:
    • TLS_CLIENT_CLOSE
    • TLS_CLIENT_OPEN
  • For details on the new keywords, please see the NetLinx Language Reference Guide.

 

Changes in this release:

  • Fixed Java disk API issue that prevented RMS Client from executing.
  • Fixed Java security issue which prevented virtual keypad from functioning when running SchoolView.
  • Update JDK to 1.8-111 (Oracle Critical Patch Update for October 2016).
  • A TLS read error occurred when data remained in the buffer. We now read the entire buffer.
  • The master now confirms if an IP address returned from the DHCP server is in use. If it is, it requests a different address.
  • Fixes load failure of knopflerfish caused by bad configuration file.
  • Telnet send_string variable names now use length for matching.
  • Fixes master crash and subsequent reboot caused after TLS connection goes offline. Affects following: IP_CLIENT_OPEN, IP_SERVER_OPEN, SSH_CLIENT_OPEN and TLS_CLIENT_OPEN.
  • SNI extension (Server Name Indication) now enabled by default in TLS. The SNI extension forces the TLS client to report which hostname it is using during the initial TLS handshake.
  • Allow access to osgi/Java services setHostnameVerifier() and setFactory(). Allows 3rdparty HTTPs code to be enabled from Duet.
  • Fix GET INPUT requests from I/O ports 5 through 8.
  • Using send_string 0 will restart master. Now fixed.
  • Fixed bug where rebooting a master with multiple panels attached, the last panel would fail to come on-line.
  • Remote devices configured for UDP would remain online even with the ICSLAN port disabled. Now fixed.
  • Setting the SSH port number now works.
  • Update JVM Security Manager which restricted use of certain java APIs within Duet modules causing exceptions.
  • Extended capabilities for utilization of special characters in passwords used with external LDAP.
  • Fixed low security mode (default) audit log bug which incorrectly reported a user lock out on a failed password.

 

Known Issues:

  • The following RMS SDKs are not compatible with 1.5.68 and higher: RMS SDK 4.0-4.3.26, RMS SDK 4.4.* and RMS SDK 4.5.*
  • When changing between the local and remote directories for user authentication, the master requires a reboot to force all currently logged in users to re-authenticate with the new service.
  • SSH Key algorithm supports only ssh-rsa host key.
  • ICSPMon will not work with port authentication on or telnet disabled.
  • The USB host ports do not support USB hubs.
  • Performing a PING to the NX master’s IPv6 address may cause the NX master to reboot.
  • Master web page login may get stuck in MS-IE browser on Windows8. Either use a different browser or in Internet Options->Advanced->Security Settings check “Enable Enhanced Protection Mode*” (Windows8 restart required).
  • Dynamic images and listview features require v.1.4.9 G5 touch panel firmware if NX security is enabled.
  • Dynamic images will not work with G4 touch panels with NX security enabled.
  • IP_MC_SERVER_OPEN command does not work on the ICSLan port.
  • The DVX-x2xx Switcher (5002) requires firmware v1.7.54 or higher if authentication is enabled for AMX devices on ICSLAN or LAN Ports.
  • The DGX Switcher (5002) requires firmware v3.2.10 or higher if authentication is enabled for AMX devices on ICSLAN or LAN Ports.
