Fixes & Enhancements

Fixes and Enhancements: Enhancements: - Added a mode button to transition to various confiruations depending on the switch, as follows: > The current running configuration is automatically saved to local storage. If the system is switched to unmanaged mode via the Managed Mode button, the system does not load the saved configuration, but it is still maintained in the device's local storage mode > On PC2816/PC2824/2848 - A transition from Unmanaged or Secure mode to Managed mode via the use of the Managed Mode button results in the switch resetting automatically and returning to Managed mode while running the saved configuration (if no configuration exists, then the default configuration is used). > Transition from Unmanaged to Manged mode behaves differently, i.e. after mode button is pressed, device is automatically configured with IP address 192.168.2.1 and username admin (no password). User must connect to the device and select, via Restore Configuration WEBUI page, if device should return to previously saved configuration or to default configuration or to configuration loaded via TFTP. Only after this selection will the device reboot to managed mode with the chosen configuration. Fixes: - Device does not flood BPDU when connected to a port with a specific source MAC address pattern (xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:81).
