Today I have download and install the new 6.6.0 version.
I was very surprised to notice that 2 "major" features have disappear!
1- The existing "Advance Mode" in the 6.5 version allowing multi site connexion (very useful when you have several clients running kerio and you want to be able to connect "on-demand" to them) is no more available.
2- The log windows is no more available directly by pressing the LOG button in advance mode. You now have to manually open the log file in C:\Program Files\Kerio\VPN Client\logs. The old feature was really helpfull when debugging a connexion problem! now you have to OPEN/CLOSE/OPEN/CLOSE the log file to be able to debug it.
How can a software evolution (version 6.5 to 6.6) remove so useful feature for the system administrator. It's sure that for the common users, the problem doesn't affect their way to use the software. But for those who control the software, and therefore those who will choose between kerio and another system, I think that the features should persist.
I was also very exited to see that a beta-client was released for linux and unfortunately realized that it was "only" for 32-bits systems, so .... be patient and wait for the 64-bits version!
Good luck for those testing this new version!

I think Kerio inc. Released v6.6 in a hurry!!
beside your notice.
at [active users] , when u want to see the connections of any host, there is (Show DNS names) checkbox
- the older versions (5.5.2 & later) shows the dns names if present instead of IP nombers. & for those IPs dosn't have DNS or can't be retraved, still appear as IP nombers.
- the New 6.6 version :
If (Sow DNS names) unchecked.. u see all IPs
if its checked.. u see (ONLY) the connections those have DNS names, BUT those not, thier IP address disapeard leaving empty space !!!
I used to leave (Show DNS names) checked, so I know the ones those have names, and at the same time I see the IP address of those connections that doesn't have DNS names.
another thing ( I don't want to call it Bug, maybe it's only me who facing this.
connections of users/hosts reported incorrectly.
I noticed some hosts have more than 1000 connections
but when u see these connections u find nothing !! (See the pic)
