Availability of Connection Sharing

Notice - April, 2021

E-MetroTel is pleased to announce the release of a Connection Sharing capability for UCX software running on E-MetroTel appliances running UCX 6.0 software that have two or more network interfaces.

This new functionality enables E-MetroTel devices connected to the private LAN network interface on the E-MetroTel appiance to communicate to the internet via the internet-facing network interface. This will allow, for example, DSM16p devices to request and receive manual or scheduled software updates without on-site reconfiguration of the network environment.

Note that this Connection Sharing is only intended to allow E-MetroTel devices or other telephony related products used in conjunction with the E-MetroTel system configured on the private LAN interface to connect to the internet to receive software updates, configuration downloads, NTP updates, etc. Use of this capability for other applications is not supported.

For configuration details please refer to Network Parameters section of the UCX Server documentation on the E-MetroTel Documentation site.

To be able to start using this functionality, update your UCX system to the latest software by following the procedures outlined in the Software Update documentation.
