v. 43.0.1125


1 Firmware Pack

The firmware pack is a ZIP file that contains the modules and the features to install on your Mediatrix unit when a new release is available.

When unzipping the firmware pack, the content is extracted according to a pre-defined tree architecture. This creates a directory that contains the files required for the Mediatrix unit to properly upgrade its firmware.

IN-13236

DGW-8081Unable to start a VM using an ISO image uploaded from the DGW Web interface.Web

Uploading a file via the DGW Web page introduced an additional byte in the header of the file. A file uploaded via the DGW Web page is now the same as the original file. VMs can now be started using an ISO image uploaded form the DGW Web interface.

---DGW-8060Requests for the TR-069 Get parameter not working for part of the tree.Cwmp

The GetParameterValue command for the Device.Services.VoiceService parameter was returning a Request Denied when the Sip.RegistrationStatus table was empty. Now the request will be completed with success and the status will be set to error.

IN-13353

DGW-8027Firmware upgrades sometimes fail when memory on unit is low.all

Firmeware upgrades are now carried out as expected.

IN-13093, IN-13658, and IN-13408

DGW-7972System closes unexpectedly when a second caller's callerID is displayed during a call waiting scenarioall

In G 729 or G 723.1., during a call waiting scenario, the second caller's callerID is now displayed without closing the system.

IN-13324

DGW-7960The AutoConfigure command must be able to be executed on a specific telephony card.Isdn, R2 and Eam

By default, the AutoConfigure command ran on all telephony cards associated with a service (i.e. ISDN, R2, or E and M). Now, if the Interface argument is given, the AutoConfigure command runs only on the specified telephony card. A new drop down list was added to the ISDN/Status/Automatic configuration table to allow users to choose the interface that will be auto-configured.

IN-13135

DGW-7957The provided DHCP option 66 script fails to execute encrypted scripts.Conf

The DHCP option 66 could not execute a script when it was encrypted. Encrypted scripts are now successfully executed with all 66, 67, and 43 supported options. Note that The Config.ScriptsSecretKey must contain the key for decryption.

IN-13236

DGW-7942The Sbc service is removing parameters of the SIP Contact header, causing interoperability issues.Sbc

The Sbc service was removing the parameters of the SIP Contact header.To allow greater control over SIP Contact parameters, new Sbc Call Agent Ruleset actions were added.The following new Call Agent Ruleset actions were added to control which Contact header parameters are relayed:

  • Forward Contact-HF parameters
  • Set Contact-HF parameter whitelist
  • Set Contact-HF parameter blacklist

IN-13311

DGW-7912The Refer-To header does not include transport information.SipEp

The new SipEp.ReferToHeaderUriSource parameter allows to select on which URI will be based the URI inserted in the Refer-To headers in the call transfers. When set to ContactUri, if a transport parameter is present in the Contact, it will be put along the URI in the Refer-To header. This parameter is not available in the DGW Web interface.

---DGW-7845Writing diagnostic logs could fail on the Sentinel 400 when large Virtual Machines were present.Sentinel 400

On the Sentinel 400, when large VMs were present, the calculation of available space to write diagnostic files was incorrect and could prevent writing diagnostic files to flash storage. The calculation of available space was fixed to prevent this problem.

IN-13135

DGW-7830Missing transport parameter in Record-Route headers issued by the SipProxy causes SIP phones to use incorrect transport.SipProxy

SipProxy does not put the transport parameter in the record-route headers, even when transport is TLS. Absence of a transport parameter means that transport is UDP. This caused some devices to use UDP instead of TLS when replying to SipProxy.The SipProxy now adds the transport parameter in the Record-Route headers when the transport is TLS.

IN-13228

DGW-7597The device can accept and return a codec with an unsupported clock rate received in a SDP offer.all

The device now validates the clock rate in addition to the codec name when trying to find a compatible codec in the SDP rtpmap.

IN-13217

DGW-7572SIP calls take too long to establish because Mediatrix unit makes AAAA queries and no DNS server responds.SipEp

The Mediatrix unit always starts DNS resolution of SIP FQDNs with AAAA queries. In environments that do not support IPV6, this introduces excessive delays when the DNS server does not respond to AAAA queries. To solve this problem, the units can now be configured to skip AAAA queries when resolving SIP FQDNs.

IN-13065, IN-13216

DGW-7338When a MTU value different than 1500 is specified for a network interface, the network connection stops working on the next restart.all

The initialisation procedure of the network card was corrected to fix configuration order issues. Setting the MTU value under Network/Interface/Ethernet Link configuration now works as expected.

IN-13114

DGW-7051T.38 fax negotiation through the SBC fails.SBC

T.38 negotiation failed because the INVITEs involved in T.38 represented media transport as UDPTL instead of udptl. Lowercase was corrected, and T.38 fax negotiation no longer fails.

---DGW-7027Unable to download large VM images with some browsers.VM

It is now possible to download large VM images using the File service. 

---DGW-6681The SBC allows all TLS connections even when no CA certificate is provided.SBC

A new CertificateValidation parameter was added to configure this behavior. When the CertificateValidation parameter is set to:

  • NoValidation, all connections are accepted without validation done on the received certificate.
  • HostName, host validation will be done if a CA certificate is provided and no TLS connection is allowed if no CA certificate is provided.

IN-12979

DGW-6446There is no Universally Unique IDentifier (UUID) available in the VM guest.VM

When the Virtual Machine is started, a UUID is now provided in the Vm guest. Its value is based on the Mediatrix unit MAC address and the VM MAC address.
