NEW! Remote TCP/UDP tunnelling
Let’s say you need to transfer a firmware image from your local machine to a switch or firewall sitting on your client’s network using FTP. Or, you need to use a proprietary admin tool like Cisco ASDM or Watchguard System Manager to make some configuration changes.
When you need to go beyond hitting the CLI or web GUI of a device, you can now use Auvik’s remote tunnelling feature to establish a TCP or UDP session to a destination port of choice for a target device.
The tunnel is established with the help of a tunnel client on your local machine—Windows, Linux, and OS X are supported. Your Auvik collector(s) facilitate the connection on the client’s network.
You can establish a tunnel session both from the Remote Management section of a device’s dashboard or through the command line (great for those scripting use cases).
NEW! Remote management audit log
It’s important to know which users are accessing the admin portals on your clients’ devices. You’ll now be able to view a history of tunnel sessions and remote terminal sessions that were established against devices for a given client. You can also view a list of your own open tunnel sessions that terminate from within the portal.
NEW! WiFi metrics and configuration management for Ubiquiti Unifi access points
If you deploy Ubiquiti Unifi APs for your clients, you can now take advantage of automated configuration management for these devices. Auvik will also pull in details on wireless clients connected to these APs, so you’ll be able to see which endpoints are connected to which AP, both on the network map and within the Wireless Clients tab of the access point’s dashboard.
To get this information, make sure you’ve enabled SNMPv1 on your Unifi controller, and have added your SNMP and login credentials to Auvik.
IMPROVED! Discovery settings visibility
Discovery settings are hierarchical: You can define a template at a multi-client level, then apply it down to your client sites. But until now, you weren’t able to tell if a customization had been made at a lower level in the hierarchy. You also couldn’t reset values to those defined higher up.
Now, when a customization has been made at a client or MSP level, you’ll see a grey asterisk at the top right-hand side of the widget indicating the change.
IMPROVED! Client export now includes device description
Clicking Export next to your client’s name on the home dashboard lets you export a wealth of inventory, alerting history, potential misconfigurations, and other actionable insights. Now when you export this, device descriptions are included on the devices tab.
