Today, we have updated IPFire on AWS to IPFire 2.23 - Core Update 136 - the latest official release of IPFire.
This update includes security fixes for OpenSSL and the Linux kernel, an updated Perl, and of course many other fixes throughout the whole system.
We are very happy that from week to week, we are gaining more customers for IPFire in the cloud - where you now can manage your network just as you do it in your own data center.
In contrast to Amazon’s own features, IPFire is easier to manage, performs just as well, but brings you even more features like standard IPsec VPNs, OpenVPN for on-the-road connectivity to the cloud, Intrusion Prevention for your cloud servers, detailed logging and reporting and many more features.
Try it out today for free!
There is a detailed installation guide available which helps you setting up your cloud correctly for IPFire.
For all customers that are already running on the latest image, there is nothing to do here but to make sure that you have all updates installed on your instance.
