Note

Due to problems with certain network equipment (switches, Cable/DSL-modems) using fixed Ethernet link speed we extended the functionality of the new feature "Ethernet link speed" to take care of these devices. This required a reload of the Up2Date. We reverted the PPTP changes in the reloaded Up2Date, because we got feedback that the included PPTP fix works perfect and solves the ID3786-problem but on the other hand that the PPTP fix disturbing PPTP connections through ASG which worked before. We were not able to reproduce a failure and none of our PPTP tests failed but decided to revert it for safety reasons. Next Up2Date will handle this issue.
