[FusionHub] Added Layer 2 SpeedFusion Support FusionHub :+1::+1::+1:

Is a LAN interface mandatory? Is it supported on AWS and other public clouds?


Hi PG:

You should be able to get the Beta 2 Release Notes now from the original link. Let us know if you got issues at all.



All good now


You can expose the FH Layer 2 settings from the SpeedFusion page, not the LAN page on the MAX/Balance routers. I haven’t had a chance to try this out yet, so please share your experiences :slight_smile:


Ok ! another treasure chest hidden behind a big “?” :grinning:

I’ll play with it a bit and give feedback. Balance L2 had some limitations in multi customers deployments. Let’s hope this will help.


Beta firmware upgrade went very smooth but I am unable to find the page with the PepVPN settings.

I am running Solo_VPN so not sure if that is the issue or not?

Note that the new local service firewall rules solve the problems with failing PCI compliance scans, as well as actually improving security/eliminate DOS attacks on those ports.

Loaded new firmware and have a bug. I clicked the “details” button for my WiFi as WAN 2.4 GHz connection and its stuck trying to load the page (see attached screenshot).

Does this beta support remote SIMs?
Love the features been added!


Can we combine L2 and VRF? To have on the same hub multiple l2 customers fully isolated.

Additional information about Layer 2 SpeedFusion on FusionHub:


Hello and Good Day to All.
Update to firmware on Surf soho MK3 is a go.
So far so good.
But what’s the deal with the firmware will expire message at the bottom of the dashboard page?

This is a beta and not intended for long-term “production” use. A GA release will be out long before then. FW that expires is generally intended to save people from themselves. :grinning:


Upgrade to 70+ devices went well. Ran a Trustwave PCI compliance scan and passed.


[Updated diagnostic - Tunnelblick works on MacOS. Consolidated the failure case to one]

Possible OpenVPN server bug.
This is not based on a thorough and systematic empirical regime - consider it somewhat anecdotal.

FusionHub Solo deployed on upCloud instances.
Remote access turned on.
iOS and MacOS client devices:
MacOS Mojave 10.14.5 (18F132)
iOS 12.4
MacOS client/OpenVPN Connect v.
MacOS client/Tunnelblick v. 3.8.0 (build 5370)
iOS OpenVPN Connect client v. 3.0.2 (894)

Remote access using L2TP with IPsec.
Two are leaves in a hub, one with “send all traffic to the hub” on, the other being off. The third is a stand-alone (no SpeedFusion connections)
They function just fine (mostly - see below).
The connections used to be somewhat unstable, but with 8.0.1b2 the L2TP connection stability has improved significantly.

OpenVPN Connect client fails:
Change the remote access server from L2TP to OpenVPN.
Download the “route_all_traffic” profile
MacOS client/Tunnelblick:
The connection is established and works well

MacOS client/OpenVPN Connect v
The connection does not get established. Times out and dies.

iOS OpenVPN Connect client: The connection does not get established.

Sanity check:
Enabled OpenVPN on a Balance One FW 8.0.0 with a SpeedFusion connection.
MacOS client/Tunnelblick:
The connection is established and works well

OpenVPN clients (iOS and MacOS):
The connection does not get established.

OpenVPN Connect clients on iOS and MacOS do connect to other OpenVPN servers.

@zegor_mjol, we tested OpenVPN is working fine with FusionHub 8.0.1b02. Do you mind to open ticket for us to investigate? Please attention the ticket to me.


Done. Ticket # 9080579
[With a slightly modified diagnostic - I was able to get Tunnelblick to work on iOS after a bit of tidying up on the Mac side. The OpenVPN Connect client still refuses to work, on both MacOS and iOS]
