DynFi Manager upgrade 22.0.0

DynFi Manager new release

After months of hard work, the DynFi team is proud to inform you of the availability of a new DynFi Manager release v.22.0.0.

This release is a long awaited release which will allow one to fully benefit from OPNsense Alias synchronization feature which was only compatible with older version of OPNsense. Couple of other bug fixes have been pushed in the release.

OPNsense has very often changed it’s code base to introduce new alias types such as:

  • MAC addresses (ex: “24:58:77:2e:b8:87”)
  • Network group (combine different network type aliases into one)
  • Dynamic IPv6 Host (an IPv6 host with auto-update abilities)
  • BGP ASN (ex: “23645”)
Updated alias boxes in DynFi Manager
