Since we are still awaiting for ScreenOS 5.4 to be as stable as 5.1, I suspect we'll see 5.4.x for some time to come.   

If there is a ScreenOS 6 in the works, it's likely very under wraps and not likely to yield much on the feature front.    However, if you like to speculate, look at all the big partnerships Juniper has forged lately.   I suspect you'll see feature integration of services from those partners.

Or we'll see those implemented in 5.4 (Such as the Symantec Brightmail Anti-Spam that has been added to the SSG line and perhaps others).

the link which sajod has posted is really good man. thanks a lot sajid.

as u guys said that i chekd out that i could download the features for 45 days free. but is it one time only . or we can download them again and again. i mean is the download available only once.

since the screenos 6.0 is only available for ssg series are they putting the netscreen series for end of life very soon. any information on that. and what abt the netscreen 500 . i am already having a ns-500 with 5.4.1r2 release on it. since the ssg series don;t support virtual systems only the ns-500 and above support them. can we get any info on the features in 6.0 is it going to be a major release with more feature or just mere feature enchancements.

waiting for ur someone to reply to this post. u guys are really doing a good job of keeping us updated. thanks a lot.

regards

The only products that support VSYS are ISG and NS-5000 platforms.  The ISG platforms will support 6.0.0.  The NS-5000 M2 boards will support 6.0.0, but not M1 board.  All SSG's will have 6.0.0 support.

Well, based on the help files, I don't see a whole lot from 5.4 other than:
- AC-VPN, which uses NHRP
- a screen option for tunnel interfaces
- Infranet auth improvements
- possibly some improved DI.
- IPv6 additions?

anyone know if there is something else?

Oh yeah, forgot about that.

However, NS-500 will not be supported with 6.0.0.  Only SSG's, ISG, and 5000 M2's.

that;s really sad man . ns-500 is a good stable box. i guess they are forcing people to go for the ISG series.

Hi Sebastan,

No, they will support the 500 for AtLeast 3 more years.(possibly 5 since they still sell the 500 and this is on site:

"The product reaches End of Support five (5) years after the last order date.  No support services contracts are available and the last contract will expire on the published EOS date"

They don't want to force you to buy an ISG, they would like you to upgrade (but so would you i guess ;))

The reason the 500 (and others) is due to device limitations. They don't want to run a seperate software train on 6.0 for the 500and others if those devices won't be able to support 6.0 features anyway (i guess)

The 500 is still the most handsome netscreen ever :-)

hi buddy thanks for ur reply. can u pls tell me is it mentioned on the site that ns-500 is going end of sale or end of life.

i guess later only the ssg and the isg platforms will be available rest all netscreen platforms will be end of life.

I've only seen the ns10, 100, 1000, 5 and 5xp on the site so you're good for plenty of years to come.

The ns5000-MGT2 will stay with the isg's and ssg's, but you nailed thefuture down pretty good ;)

Cheers,

M

Just because a product is not supported by 6.0.0 does not mean it is end of life.  When 6.0.0 does come out, 5.3 and 5.4 will still be supported.  It does not mean the NetScreen products will be end of life ... at least not for a few more years.

Yes, well that's exactly what we say isn't it?

" No, they will support the 500 for AtLeast 3 more years.(possibly 5 since they still sell the 500 and this is on site:

"The product reaches End of Support five (5) years after the last order date.  No support services contracts are available and the last contract will expire on the published EOS date""
