LANCOM Trusted Access support and more overview for rule inheritance

With LCOS FX 10.13 you can make your Unified Firewalls ready for LANCOM Trusted Access, the trusted cloud-managed Secure Remote Access solution. This version also includes a practical extension for the Unified Firewall WebGUI: We have redesigned the dialog for the connection between desktop objects to provide you with better clarity for complex firewall rules with inheritance. In addition to the selected services, the rules table now also displays those rules that are defined between parent objects. This enhanced approach allows you to see the full hierarchy of rules at a glance.
