Updates: Lights-Out 2.5.3 and Lights-Out Mobile 18.104.22.16861
We published two updates yesterday. Lights-Out 2.5.3 and Lights-Out Mobile on Android 22.214.171.12461.
Important: Prepare for Lights-Out 3!
Lights-Out 3 will soon be available. If you have up-to-date “maintenance and support”, you’re ready to upgrade to Lights-Out 3 for free.
If your “maintenance and support” has expired and you wish to upgrade to Lights-Out 3, then please install update 2.5.3 and extend “maintenance and support” now! Version 2.5.3 calculates the number of years you have to buy to be up-to-date. If you never extended “maintenance and support”, you may have to pay for 2 years. This is still cheaper (80%) than a new license for version 3.
Attention: You can’t extend maintenance after installing version 3!
Lights-Out 2.5.3 addresses issues reported by our customers.
#100950 Client command line does report wrong server state
Fixed extend maintenance dialog
Fixed first seen time stamp
Fixed wake-up reason
Improved security for unauthenticated access
Upgrading the Server
Simply use the automatic update feature or download and run the installer. You don’t need to uninstall any previous version 2.x. The installer takes care of it.
Upgrading Windows Client Computers
Windows Client Computers should upgrade within 15 minutes. You can also restart the computer to trigger the upgrade.
Upgrading Apple Mac Computers
Open Safari and download the Mac installer. Run it. It automatically takes care of any previous installation.
Lights-Out Mobile for Android 126.96.36.19961
Lights-Out Mobile for Android has been updated to support Lights-Out 3. This includes support for new servers (Windows Server 2019 and Synology NAS Systems).
Adding a server has been improved. You no longer have to specify a well known port like 443, 7782 or 7783. This is now automatically detected.
Note: This update does now use the TLS 1.2 implementation from Android. If you can’t connect to your server anymore, please verify that your certificates are valid!
A similar update for iOS is coming soon.
