  • The legacy firmware
  • The LORIX OS

What is the difference?

The legacy firmware is a Linux system that is shipped on the gateway since 2017. You configure it mainly through SSH and the Command Line Interface.

The LORIX OS is a new firmware that has a new architecture supporting On The Air updates an provides a web interface to configure the gateway in a very convenient way. Is is the successor of the legacy firmware and will replace it on the long teer.
