Model: OC200
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 4.X

Hello, 

 

I did an ooopsy last night, I wanted to upgrade to the latest V4.X.X  firmware to fix the Log4j.  

I by mistake took the V3.X.X    =>  https://community.tp-link.com/en/business/forum/topic/514452  unless I read this thread wrong I can't seem to find V4.X.X with the Log4J there was a beta but that one is strike through , there is V5 but I don't want that ,... anyway long story short I donwloaded a bunch and in the end mistakenly install V3.x.    

 

Anyway so I updated again to V4.X   directly from the V3 gui ( love that not needing to have cloud access enabled to update Firmware ) 

 

but my real issue is upon restoring. ( I didn't try to restore on V3 , when I noticed my mistake , I upgraded directly to V4 ) on V4 I tried to restore.

- Why can't there be an option on on of the first screens of the wizard  => restore from back up ?   that would have helped.

- Why can't I access my autobackups from the USB stick that I'm using ,  I have a bunch of backups there but I can't load them from the stick when I need them ? 

 

In the end I restored from a backup from my local computer, via the maintenance tab. 

 

For the upgrade 

- I'm back on OC200 version 4.4.6 (1.9.3 Build 20210914 Rel.39903)  => so where is the Log4J version of the V4 version

    (I'm aware that at the time of writting this 4 CVE's weere detected and that 2.17 is needed , and no 2.17 fix is there, at least 2.16 would already ease my mind).

 

again I'm looking here (unless I'm blind I don't see a V4. fix anymore for the OC200 ):

I think maybe you have a little bit misunderstanding on the firmware, actually the V4 to V5 is just an iteration of the OC200's firmware, and the latest firmware V5.0.29 fixes the log4j bug.
You can download it from the official website at the following link:
