Release 2.1.21 of L2TPNS

Security [CVE-2006-5873]: Rhys Kidd identified a vulnerability in the handling of heartbeat packets. Drop oversize heartbeat packets.

Note: If clustering is not being used, simply dropping packets to UDP port 32792 on the server is recommended and will avoid the vulnerability.

Release 2.0.13 of L2TPNS

l2tpns is a layer 2 tunneling protocol network server (LNS). It supports up to 65535 concurrent sessions per server/cluster plus ISP features such as rate limiting, walled garden, usage accounting, and more.

Release 1.1.0 of L2TPNS

Release 1.1.0 of L2TPS has just been completed. This release is a huge improvement over the previous release in terms of configurability and stability.

It's now possible to configure almost everything in a running instance by the command-line interface, so it should almost never require dropping any connections.

Also a number of stability bugs have been fixed, after seeing some higher load in the last few months.

Also supported is RADIUS for user authentication, a walled garden for users who fail authentication, speed throttling, traffic interception, usage accounting and hot-standby clustering capability.... read more
