What we will do:
Allow XG software installer to run on XG hardware appliances, after removing current partitions (same option as UTM9)
What we are not planning:
We will not allow software install to run trivially on a system currently installed with XG.
We will not make any effort to support on-system wireless, on software installs.
The system will not report itself in any way as an XG appliance, inside the OS.Roman Weber commented
I understood the request that way: (But for me just really nice to have)
Allow the HW-Appliance ISO to install also on older Systems like UTM220 with LCD support.
But at the end "Anonymous" has to elaborate us what he/she really meant.
For people which search for confirmation: XG Firewall works fine on the UTM220 but without LCD Support.
Adding DHCP options to the GUI is under consideration for a future release.
This feature is under consideration for a future release, though a target version or timeframe is not yet set.
