V2 Hardware

From StarOS Community Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The last release of StarOS v2 was 2.11.1 which was a special cross-over release designed to facilitate an upgrade from StarOS v2 to StarV3.

StarOS v2 is officially EOL and has been superceded by StarV3 for wireless applications. However, StarOS v2 is the only "server edition" available at this time with caching proxy server, DNS server, RADIUS server, etc. No comparable StarV3 "server edition" exists yet.

Old StarOS v2 releases can be found here on tog.net and can still be licensed at Valemount's license-keys.com site.
