Updating Router and Relay

This article discusses the process of updating up the Router and Relay. It is important to keep your software updated because new versions fix problems, including security issues.

The Router and Relay configuration is not part of the installation packages and will not be overwritten or deleted when uninstalling or updating, but it is highly recommended to make backup copies of the configurations before updating.


Download msi installation packages from the downloads page and install them.


In this example, the update is carried out from a computer running Windows. If you are using a different operating system, some changes may apply. To connect to the server over SSH you need to download Putty.

  1. Connect to your server via SSH using Putty.

  2. Stop and remove the Router and Relay services. To do this, run the commands sequentially:
    service aspia-router stop
    service aspia-relay stop
    dpkg --remove aspia-router
    dpkg --remove aspia-relay

  3. Download deb packages from the downloads page to directory C:\temp (or to any other directory, but further in the instructions this path will be used).

  4. Go to the directory with Putty in the terminal and run the commands to upload installation packages to the server
    ./pscp -l user -pw <password> C:/temp/aspia-router-<version>-x86_64.deb <user_name>@<address>:/tmp/aspia-router.deb
    ./pscp -l user -pw <password> C:/temp/aspia-relay-<version>-x86_64.deb <user_name>@<address>:/tmp/aspia-relay.deb

  5. Install new versions of packages by running the commands in Putty
    dpkg --install /tmp/aspia-router.deb
    dpkg --install /tmp/aspia-relay.deb
    systemctl daemon-reload
    service aspia-router start
    service aspia-relay start
