Comment: Please note, the mentioned Firmware 4.12.320 is coming with this update and is included in the archive!

Comment: The Upgrade Firmware to IGEL V5 comes with the Firmware Version 5.01.110 but the release note is similar to the 5.01.100 LX Firmware without a fixed password check. Iam not sure if the 5.01.100 will be also replaced but currently this is how it looks like. Have fun for your test’s!

Cheers
Michael
