Some license parameters look different / are gone after license upgrade

This FAQ applies to:
  • Clavister cOS Core
Question:
When i downloaded an updated license from http://www.clavister.com i noticed that several license parameters have been removed. What happened?

Answer:
In newer licenses, some values has been removed as they are either copied from other license values or if the value does not exist, cOS Core will assume that it should use the default value for this parameter. Some license examples:
  • Max GRE tunnels
    Old=Unlimited
    New=N/A (blank)
The above does not mean that the system no longer supports GRE tunnels, it means that unlimited is the default. There is no license restriction for GRE tunnels, so if the license does not contain this parameter cOS Core will assumes the default value.
  • Max PPP tunnels
    old=10
    New=N/A (blank)
The above does not mean that the system no longer supports any PPTP tunnels but that it will take/copy the amount of PPTP tunnels from the value of the "VPN tunnel" license parameter. So if the license parameter for "MAx VPN tunnels" is 10, it means that you can use 10 PPTP tunnels, 10 IPsec tunnels, 10 SSL VPN tunnels, L2TP etc.
  • PPP Clients/Servers Available
    old=True
    New=N/A (blank)
The default value is set to be "True". Only if the value deviates from default would there be any need for the license to contain an entry.
  • PROP_OSPF (or Multicast, trafficshaping, loadbalancing and many more)
    old=True
    New=N/A (blank)
The default value is set to be "True". Only if the value deviates from default would there be any need for the license to contain an entry.
