Issues Fixed in this Version

Net: VoIP/SIP Connection tracking Helper

For exchanging SIP audio packets over a firewall a special SIP connection helper is required. With the SIP connection helper is it possible to export the dynamic audio data via UDP (User Datagram Protocol) to track and change on firewall level. Due to an error were packages incorrectly marked and routed through another interface with the consequence that you could not hear at least one participant in SIP calls. This update will fix this broken module for the kernel you are using.


System Management: Monitoring Media Erros on LSI Controllers

Within this update the active monitoring of media errors on LSI RAID-Controllers has been customized. Up to now a warning information for hard disks with a single media error has been issued, although the controller was able to handle those errors and correct them automatically. From now on the warning threshold is 100 errors.
