SENSE will automatically update and take it into use when online.

      • ability to alter the update reboot scheduling will be available in a future update to the mobile apps
    • Firmware update notification events
      • Firmware update events are visible in the app whenever SENSE has updated
  • Under the hood:

      • the database is not wiped by this update, reset may be needed to get rid of existing duplicates. If they remain offline for 5+ days they disappear from the app list automatically.
    • Update of various system libraries
    • Preparations / improvements for upcoming whitelisting support
    • Stability improvements

    there is some way to force the firmware update?

     

    In my case the SENSE firmware still to the older one

     

     

    Edited: I solved with a dirty reboot unplugging power cable.
    Why not implement the possibility to update manually by the app?

    Hi, again: what's new for Android users (more than  80% of market share, source Gartner 4Q16).

    IOS is only 18%, are F-Secure people Apple fanboys ?

    why don't you ask your question like: "when will this feature be availbable for android ?"

    these reproachful remarks are compeletly useless.

     

    I guess it's easier to implement it for iOS than for android, that's why they released it earlier.

     

    not because of...

    ...fanboyism

    ...iOS users look better

    ...have more money to spend

    ...a global conspiracy against google/android lead by Tim Cook

    It's easyer to implement a feature such port forwarding or whitelisting once the harder is done: making a secure channel between the app and the device.

    For Android it's done, why such a delay: as explanation we have delays for holidays (!), after a postponed launch of .... 18 month !

    Seems to me that they should wrote as prerequisite: you must have an IOS device to access the full features of Sense.

     

    This is the only explanation I can see, fanboyism. (and of sure it's a bitter joke from me, if you did'nt understand me). And I re-explain: I'm not angry at all. Just deeply disappointed.

  • D-Fens2D-Fens2 Posts: 78

    I guess you are also disappointed because of the lack of even the most basic features, at least that's what I am.

     

    right now, it is hard to image to pay a monthly fee for what f-secure offers at the moment.

     

    and regarding your sarcasm: add a smily next time Smiley Wink

  • F6F6 Posts: 53

    Good idea; I've found where smileys are listed. The good one is Smiley Mad for the mood, and Smiley Tongue for the bitter joke.

    Hi,

     

    Apologies for the delay and we are grateful for your patience.

     

    An app version with the port forwarding feature + a bunch of other fixes is now available for open beta testing in google play. The build version is 1.0.681.  There's still some minor tweaks coming (== this is not the 'final' build) and further testing before this is released to production, but for those of you that want early access to it should be able to download it now.

     

    Google has instructions on how to access beta applications:

    https://support.google.com/googleplay/answer/7003180?hl=en

     

    Please give it a go and as always, send us feedback!

    I tried to download the end-point security client for Mac, but it only offers Sense for Windows. Then I went to see if my Sense had received the latest update and in the event log it says that the firmware has been updated 30.9.2017. All the other dates  and times on Sense seem to be right, but the firmware update time goes two weeks to the future. 

  •  2017-09-13_01 - P-1.3.9.21 is the firmware in hardware menu?

    Unplug sense's power to boot it and see if that helps.

    Do you have a other router in front of sense? See if it's date and time are correct.

    Thanks for the fast reply 1sk. 

     

    It seems that I still had the old firmware. I was too quick to assume that the update made "30.9.2017" would be the most recent update. I rebooted Sense by unplugging it and now it updated the firmware. After that I was able to download the Mac end-point client without any problems.

     

    I don't have other router before sense. The update that was made today is shown correctly in the event log, but there still is the other update that is shown to be made 30.9.2017. Everything seem to be functioning normally so I guess that previous update is just for some reason shown with a wrong date.

    Hi,

     

    Thanks for your report,

     

    We have noticed that sometimes when the device boots and before it gets a clock update from the internet the device clock can be in the future. We've made an improvement for this logic, which will hopefully reduce these problems in the next firmware update. There is still a chance that the clock is off before it gets a chance to synchronize from the internet, but at least it should not be a future date.
