    I’m using 6.0rc1 on RB751G-2HnD at home…. but veri simple config, video rate limit and simple firewall rules… I don’t think upgrade to rc2… I’m waiting next releases 🙂

    Cool, similar config for me. I think the next release will most likely be 6.0 full 🙂

    Yeah, been running it for a while, seems ok.
    Want to test the fastpath feature feather but, haven’t got the time yet.

    @ O!
    It looks like fast path only activates in certain situations. Due to the required options I would never be able to use it in my infrastructure. The key thing is that connection tracking has to be off/auto with no firewall rules.
