PROXY Pro v10.4 Hotfix #1 is now available!

Hello Friends of Proxy,

We have now released PROXY Pro v10.4 Hotfix #1!

PROXY Pro RAS customers can review the RAS upgrade guide here and download the software zip file here.

PROXY Pro P2P customers can review the P2P upgrade guide here and download the software zip file here.

We will be upgrading PROXY Air servers, our hosted remote desktop service, over the course of the next couple weeks.

Below is a direct copy/paste from the release notes and for a complete historical breakdown of what’s changed release-by-release feel free to skim our “What’s New?” release notes PDF.

Summary of Changes in v10.4 Hotfix #1:

• Host “Beep on Connect”: The Host “Beep on Connect/Disconnect” feature was inadvertently broken in the v10.4 FCS release.  If this feature is important to your users, please upgrade the Host to this Hotfix release.

• Host Permission To Connect, Sensitive to Lock Screen: The Host Access settings, Connection Permission, “Do not prompt for permission on logon or lock screen” was not correctly recognizing the lock screen in Windows 10 if the system User Accounts > Advanced > Secure sign-in setting was set to not require users to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to log in.  The Host now recognizes and handles this case correctly, so the Host Connection Permission feature works as expected.

• PROXY Pro Server Recording Analytics: The Server system did not guarantee the collection and storage of events reported in the Analytics > Recording reports. New recordings, and playback of those recordings, are now guaranteed to be collected and reported on.

• Gateway Server management of Host status: The Gateway Server has a few changes related to properly maintaining and reporting on the status of its relationship with Hosts.  Hosts that report to the Gateway Server and experience an authentication problem are now consistently identified as “Authentication Problem” status.  The Gateway Server no longer makes outbound connections to Hosts (per the Update Host Status Every setting) if the Host reported in via SSL or WSS protocol, or if the last network connectivity kept a reverse connection.  This reduces the load on the Gateway Server and avoids unnecessary network traffic.

• Azure Active Directory with many groups:  The PROXY Pro Server now detects when a user authenticates via Azure AD and group memberships are omitted because more than 200 groups would be returned in the result.  The Server does not allow the user login and reports error 0x8A0C01DB with message “User authenticated successfully, but has too many group memberships to be processed correctly.  Reduce the number of group memberships, or contact Support for other options.”  This issue is best addressed by modifying the application registration in AzureAD to limit the groups reported to the PROXY Pro Server.

• Web Console security editor improvement:  When using the Web Console to edit Group security, and inheritance is broken (changing “Inherit permissions” from Yes to No), the set of security added via the “Add” button did not include all previously allowed access if any users or groups inherited security from more than one parent.  This is fixed, so this operation will not lose or omit any previously granted rights.

• Various User Experience Improvements:  A number of places in the product have improved messaging to clarify the root cause when something goes wrong, or to otherwise generally be more accurate and provide useful, actionable information.  Areas of improvement include the installers (including indicating when a manual reboot is required after installation or upgrade on Windows Server 2019), F1=Help support, the documentation linked to by F1=Help, dialog improvements in Deployment Tool, Web Console message when in Limited Administrator mode, and installed Master now includes detailed error code, as well as descriptive Status state, for Hosts in certain non-OK statuses.

That covers the changes for v10.4 Hotfix #1.  Thanks for keeping up with us!
