Hi,

Will dynamic routing & remote access VPN's be in the roadmap for future releases?

Really?  No IPv6, QoS, threat detection, botnet?

 

Good thing it has failover.  Since it doesn't seem to really do much, it can continue to do so after one dies and it has to fail over to another one.

Which also makes sense as it is virtual.

 

No IPv6 really!?  You do realize we are in post October 21st, 2015?  What year do I have to time travel to in order to find Cisco supports IPv6 everywhere?
