News: vBoxxCloud version 1.7.0 is now live!

Published: 04/10/2013



vBoxxCloud version v1.7.0.395  is now live and some great features are updated!



Release Notes:


 


Advanced Organization Policies


Admins now have the capability to enforce a maximum number of users and child organizations for a specific organization. In addition, administrators can enable or disable certain features for organizations including: custom branding, WebDAV integration, backup creation functionality, and ability to cloud-enable file servers.


Dual Hostnames


vBoxxCloud now has the option to utilize dual hostnames eliminating the use of port 510. This feature will allow all external agent and web links to connect via port 443 and map internally to separate and independent IP addresses on ports 443 and 510. This feature can be enabled on installation or on an existing configuration by a system administrator on the System Settings page.
