nevisProxy

In nevisProxy RR 5.x, all features that have been marked as deprecated in the lifetime of the LTS 3.14.3.x and the RR 4.x releases will be removed. You can no longer use them. There is a comprehensive list of parameters that will not work in RR 5.x. All deprecated features have been replaced by better alternatives, are no longer technically possible or have become irrelevant.

Here are some of the most notable removals:

  • Legacy Session Store (and everything related to it). This includes parameters such as:

  • The QoS configuration in the navajo.xml file. QoS will now only be configured with an ApacheConfigFilter.

  • MaxClientsPerIpAddr. This feature has been replaced with QoS directives and will be removed.

  • InputValidationFilter profiles. These profiles can be fully replaced by the ModSecurityFilter.

  • SessionResourceFilter

  • Auditfilter. This filter has been replaced by the LoggerFilter.
