Windows Roaming Client
Web App
Introducing more compatibility with VPN software for the Windows Roaming Client.
DNSFilter's Windows Roaming Client operates well with most VPN applications. If you experience connectivity issues while your VPN is active, a new toggle is available in your site settings to disable the Roaming Client under these conditions.
We will continue to work on VPN improvements in the future with the goal of full compatibility with all VPN agents.
Windows Roaming Client v1.7
new
Windows Roaming Client
Added FIPS compliance to the Windows Roaming Client.
The FIPS standard is published by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, or NIST. This setting in Windows complies with the US government FIPS 140 standard. When it’s enabled, it forces Windows to only use FIPS-validated encryption schemes and advises applications to do so, as well.
Windows Roaming Client v1.6
new
Windows Roaming Client
Action Required: Update Windows Roaming Client
What is changing?
As part of good security practice, DNSFilter rotates our “certificate of authenticity” for our Windows applications every three years. This certificate gives you validation that no tampering has taken place in the code, and you can safely install them on your systems.
Because the old certificate expires on March 15th, 2021 at 2pm EDT, it is important that you are running the newest version of these tools to maintain continuity.
It is imperative that you utilize the latest version of the Roaming Client so that Windows continues to recognize them as trusted applications.
What do I need to do?
The Windows Roaming Client is set to update automatically by default.
If auto-update is enabled for your account, you do not need to take any action
. You can click here to verify your auto-update setting (Or navigate in the dashboard to Deployments > Roaming Clients > Settings).
However,
if you have disabled auto-update
, you must either turn auto-update ON by March 11th for your organization(s), or download Windows Roaming Client v1.6 and install it.
Thank you for keeping your organization secure, and partnering with us to make the internet a safer place for your users.
