    Default R80.20 Production and Public EA

    For those who can't wait for R80.20 to become generally available, it is available in Early Availability form.
    Both Production and Public EA versions are available.
    Public EA is Management only, the Production EA covers both Gateway and Management.
    Details are posted on CheckMates: https://community.checkpoint.com/mes...-and-public-ea

    In the list of changes, I see mention of moving to kernel 3.10. That corresponds to RHEL 7. Has the underlying RHEL been upgraded, or just the kernel?

    The real question I have is this: will R80.20 use systemd?

    Since I'm not familiar with the userspace of RHEL 7, I can't say for sure.
    Just doing a perfunctory compare of installed RPM packages, I can see some updated libraries are there for sure.
    Same with some tools like tar.
    OpenSSH is the same version, though.

    Bottom line: not sure, and this could all be different in the GA version.

    Hi there, out of interest, what is the version of linux ppp in the new version? Reason I ask is that in the UK, VDSL deployments support 1500 byte MTU but that needs ppp version 2.4.7 or greater?

    Thanks

    At least in the public EA, it's 2.4.4.

    However, I assume this is subject to change in GA, especially since the current Public EA is only centered around Management and not gateway where this would be more relevant.
