How does Version Checking work?
« on: February 27, 2016, 03:03:03 PM »
I've just updated from 1.8 to 1.10.2b95, which is the latest version I can see on Source Forge, yet when I go to System > Firmware it says there is a newer version available.

Just curious how that page checks the version and what the latest version is?

Hi.   It looks broken.

It works by:

When you open that page it calls out to t1n1wall.com and pass the version in use.   The server responds if that is the latest or not.   It looks like that part on the server is broken.  I'll take a look.  I think it needs rework.
