New Ruckus Firmware WITH Bonjour Gateway
Ruckus have just released a new version of their firmware and it is available to all.
One of the best things about this version is that they have added a bonjour gateway function to it.
It has also allowed me to use more than 6(8?) wireless networks on the same radio. (i was a couple of versions out of date)
I'll be creating a small guide on how to setup the gateway during Easter when i'm re-configuring some of my network.
Anyway, the link to the firmware is here https://support.ruckuswireless.com/s....7.1#firmwares
The whats new here https://support.ruckuswireless.com/d...n-zoneflex-9-7
and the is a guide to this version here https://support.ruckuswireless.com/d...9-7-user-guide

I have had the Bonjour Gateway since January. Seems where you got your from is slightly behind.

Yes, it was released with 9.7, but that wasn't freely available. Only available to premium customers.

Oh right i didn't know, i didn't know i was a premium customer!

Need to have at least v9.5 to upgrade - we're on v9.4

Upgrade to 9.5 then? It's a seamless upgrade path through Ruckus versions.

9.5 is only available to premium folks.

But if you're looking at 9.7.1 which according to the post above is freely available to non-premium customers, surely there's now an upgrade path for those customers?

There shouldn't be any reason why you can't upgrade. If you have any 7942 Access points on your network, they wouldn't work with 9.5 because they stopped supporting them after 9.4.
If you can send me a PM with your email address I will send you the download link for 9.5, this is usually a service we only offer to customers, but i'm sure we can make an exception for an EduGeeker

Thanks NetCtrl - I was wondering whether to 'mention' you to bring you running here, but I wasn't sure if DJones was a customer which would put you in a sticky situation.

Thanks for the thought @howartp
I don't think it should matter too much whether @djones is a customer or not, we're always happy to help where we can if a Ruckus customer is in need

Not too sure on the "premium customers part" but if you have partner premium support or partner watchdog support as it is now known, you receive the firmware updates - if you don't then you don't.
If anyone's support has ran out and they haven't renewed, let us know and we can quote for you. The partner watchdog support also includes advanced hardware replacement meaning a replacement Zone Director would be with you the next day. So well worth a look.
Hope that clears it up anyway and glad all are happy with their deployments.
@Marshall_IT thanks for the nudge to anyone who hasn't yet upgraded. 9.8 is on it's way shortly and if you are happy so far, the location tracking should blow you away!

Do you think this a mistake? It's not available to customers who have a ZD1100 or ZD5000. It doesn't fit with their support model really, does it?

It certainly is, do you mean the older ZD1000 series? In which case you are correct.
