This release addresses an issue in Gateway version 1.10 that prevented some users from logging in to the user interface. All Gateway users can now log in as expected.
New management interface for the Gateway appliance
A more secure and easier-to-use management interface replaced Webmin on the private network of the Gateway appliance. It includes options to manage and configure the appliance private network, public network, and NTP server; controls to reboot, reset, or shut down the appliance; and a command line interface for access to advanced options via SSH.
Gateway appliance OS update in IT Expert
You now update the operating system on Gateway appliances in EcoStruxure IT on the Administration > Gateways tab.
Configure SNMP trap ports
The Gateway now listens for traps on port 162 by default for better third party device support.
Note: The Gateway listens for SNMPv1 traps only.
The new Settings > Advanced > SNMP trap ports option allows you to configure SNMP trap ports in addition to 1062. The configurable port list contains port 162 to support the default for most third party devices.
To receive traps for third party devices, you must manually add the Gateway as an SNMP trap receiver in the device's user interface. See Configure SNMP trap ports
NMC 3 firmware update support
As of this release, you can now use IT Expert to update the firmware on devices that use an APC Network Management Card 3 (AP9640).

Domain change to us.ecostruxureit.com
Some URLs used for Gateway communication with EcoStruxure IT reflect outdated branding and are being retired. The URL us.struxureon.com will soon be replaced by us.ecostruxureit.com.
You must define a DNS server for the network that connects to EcoStruxure IT.
Make sure your Gateway can resolve us.struxureon.com and us.ecostruxureit.com via DNS.
Note: Firewall settings to connect using static IP addresses 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 are unaffected by this change.
