Configuring VPN Remote Access for the first time on your Sophos XG Firewall? Check out this useful Community post!
Advisory: Sophos XG Firewall - Antivirus service stopped due to failed pattern update. Please visit this KBA for the latest updates
With a specific firewall rule configuration and after upgrading to v17.5 MR10, granular Access Control List entries on the XG Device Access page may no longer apply as expected.
This can occur if a custom 'drop all' firewall rule has been configured with Any zone set as the source.
Applies to the following Sophos product(s) and version(s) Sophos Firewall XG Virtual
This can cause administrators to lose access to the XG via SSH or HTTPS from zones where access is not globally allowed.
Under investigation by development. Workaround is available as below
We expect to address this behaviour in the upcoming v17.5 MR12 release
As soon as further information is available
