Known to apply to the following Sophos product(s) and version(s) Astaro Security Gateway/Sophos UTM
Operating systems V7, V8, V9
On the tabs of the Management > Up2Date menu the configuration options for the update service of Sophos UTM are located. There are two types of updates available:
• Firmware updates: A firmware update contains bugfixes and feature enhancements for Sophos UTM.
• Pattern updates: A pattern update keeps the anti-virus, anti-spam, intrusion protection definitions as well as the online help up-to-date. In order to download Up2Date packages, the firewall opens a TCP connection to the update servers on port 443—allowing this connection without any adjustment to be made by the administrator. However, if there is another firewall in between, you must explicitly allow the communication via the port 443 TCP to the update servers.
The Management > Up2Date > Overview tab provides a quick overview on whether your system is up-to-date. The Firmware section shows the currently installed firmware version. If an update package is available, you can directly download and install it from here. The Patterns section shows the current version of the installed patterns. Steps:
New update packages can automatically be downloaded to the firewall.
