Re: What about Trace Route support? (tracert in Win)

No. It doesn't "fix" the tracert issue. As has been stated before, Efficient does not regard it as a problem, issue or bug. Their position is that it works as intended.

Re: What about Trace Route support? (tracert in Win)

One of the reasons the old firmware didn't support Netmeeting was because of the H.323 need for dynamic ports ranges. Now that this firmware is rumorred to support H.323, does that mean that it now support port range. Or, does it enable H.323 by means of a different trick?

Re: What about Trace Route support? (tracert in Win)

netmeeting support will be available in next firmware release
when, nobody knows....

Still doesn't have what I want in a router, and I have a small mem 5660 and cannot upload the new firmware.
