Hello,
I've faced with some issues when tried to set up Kerio Control (9.2.4-2223/ 9.2.3-2219) on new Gigabyte barebones - GIGABYTE BRIX IoT GB-EAPD-4200 (Apollo Lake SoC based) with dual Realtek RTL8111HS on board.
1) I cannot configure TCP/IP settings via local console: when trying to apply new settings (static or just switch to DHCP mode), there is an error "error in communication with engine". I can change these settings via Web console but I have to reboot Kerio Control to apply it.
2) If I just unplug network cable and plug it back DHCP configured NIC's status changes to "Connectivity problem" and it takes 4 minutes for NIC to obtain TCP/IP configuration.
I've also noticed a high CPU consumption when I just unplug the network cable and at the moment when NIC finally obtains TCP/IP configuration from DHCP server.

I checked new hardware for compatibility with kernel 3.16. It looks like NIC compatibility is OK (file attached).

Did anybody ever face with similar issues?

PS: I've opened a ticket, but the only suggestion I got from support team is to reinstall Kerio Control! Evil or Very Mad
BTW I tried

Update: when I plug the device with Kerio control installed to production network it makes some devices (WiFi access points, some Windows hosts) to fail.

The same problem with Fitlet2 (Intel Atom E3930 based) with dual Intel I211 on board.
Compatibility test shows that appropriate network driver is present in the system but it doesn't work properly. Mad

Update:
One more issue: Builtin RADIUS fails to authenticate external AP users: MS-CHAP2-Response is incorrect

I've found some kind of workaround for Apollo Lake based PCs. Kerio Control release 9.2.2-2172 has no issues when configuring NIC settings and no issues with RADIUS authentication.
All releases prior 9.2.2-2172 do not work at all: Kerio engine cannot be started. All versions released after 9.2.2-2172 have issues described above.
The only problem that still persists: it takes almost 5 minutes for Realtek RTL8111HS NICs to start.

BTW: Kerio Support service just closed my ticket without explanations. Carry on!
