New 16.16.3 Patch Release

Just a few bug fixes.


Important notice

  • While Meraki appliances have traditionally relied on UDP port 7351 for cloud communication and TCP ports 80 and 443 for backup communications, with MX 16 we are beginning a transition to using TCP port 443 as the primary means for cloud connectivity. In order to ensure proper connectivity to the Meraki cloud after this upgrade, please ensure that traffic using TCP port 443 between is allowed through any firewalls that may be deployed upstream of your Meraki appliances.
  • HTTP proxy, which allows default management traffic from MX appliances to be sent through a proxy, is deprecated on MX 16 and higher firmware versions.

Legacy products notice

  • When configured for this version, Z1, MX60, MX60W, MX80, and MX90 devices will run MX 14.56.

Bug fixes

  • BGP stability improvements.
  • Resolved a rare issue that could result in MX appliances performing content filtering lookups for an improperly derived URL when the certificate exchange used to establish an HTTPS connection was fragmented.
  • Corrected an issue that could result in dynamic DNS certificates used for AnyConnect VPN failing to renew.
  • Resolved several rare cases that could result in device reboots.
  • Resolved an issue that could result in a disruption to traffic routing when configuration changes were made to MX appliances with a large number of AutoVPN routes.
  • Fixed an issue that could result in Z3(C) appliances erroneously showing an orange power LED while they were connected and online.
  • Corrected an issue that resulted in the PoE status icons not being displayed in Dashboard for MX95 and MX105 appliances.

Known issues

  • After making some configuration changes on MX84 appliances, a brief period of packet loss may occur. This will affect all MX84 appliances on all MX firmware versions
  • Due to MX 15 regressions, USB cellular connectivity may be less reliable on some modems
  • Due to an MX 15 regression, the management port on MX84 appliances does not provide access to the local status page
  • Client traffic will be dropped by MX65(W), MX67(C,W), and MX68(W,CW) appliances if 1) The client is connected to a LAN port with 802.1X authentication enabled and 2) The VLAN ID of the port is configured to 16, 32, 48, 64, 80, 96, 112, 128, 144, 160, 176, 192, 208, 224, or 240.
