Beta testing

    There is really no official beta program as of now.  We are working on an 'open beta' in the next release, such that if anyone wants, they can try the coolest features that are not already out in the wild. 

    As of linking Android, what you need to do is to go 'Settings->reboot firewalla'.  Firewalla will reboot.  After say 3 min, you should have an icon on your Android and you will need to go through the setup again.    (Next release, we will add a button to add new devices, no reboot necessary)

    We made direct access to accelerate access to Firewalla from outside in places where cloud access may be slow.  You only need this if when you are outside and you can't not stand how slow firewalla is. 

    Upgrade will always pull latest and reboot.    We trigger upgrades remotely, so it is not necessary to use that button.

    Hi!

    Thank you for your prompt reply!!

    Ahh, ok, i saw a note in one of the updates where you were asking for Android beta testers and that you requested users to apply via help@firewalla.com, which i did, that is why assumed it was a program 😊

    Well the thing is that the only option i have available on the Android app screen is ”Demo” and a link that takes my to the Kickstarter app/webpage for the campaign. Demo will, of course, not let me do much! Might have to turn the device off, start the app an then turn it on again, will try that later!

    Thank you for clearing the ”Direct Access” and the ”Upgrade”” part also!

    Best regards

    Hi again!

    Got the Android app to work (connect to the Firewalla) by switching the Firewalla off/on i.e disconnect from power.

    Best regards
