Important – Compatibility
The new product versions eLux RP 6.3.0 and Scout Enterprise Management Suite 15.3.1 offer an improved encryption method for device passwords in addition to the certificate-based management protocol via IP port 22125 with end-to-end encryption (TLS).
As a result, Scout Enterprise 15.3.1 is compatible with eLux RP 5, eLux RP 6.2.0 and eLux RP 6.3, but not with eLux RP 6.0 and eLux RP 6.1.
Devices running eLux RP 6.2. and eLux RP 6.3 can be managed through Scout Enterprise Management Suite 15.1.0 and later versions.
An overview of all versions can be found in our Compatibility matrix.
