I used to be able to request a free home use license, years ago.
The instructions say:
All accounts can create a personal license for home use. To do this, go to the License Management page and click “Create license here” in the Home Use License section to generate your key.
But now, the only option is to enter my activation key (where do I get that?) or click Create UTM SW Essential Firewall license for me.
That results in a key with all features disabled.
Please. I've been at this for 2 days now. I tried emailing sophos too.
I'm just trying to create a standard free home utm license.
I've tried this on several networks, different computers, and multiple web browsers.
There is no "create license here" button in the "home use license" section - as described in sophos_myutm_userguide_eng.pdf.
In reply to Remuflon:
If you look at the screenshot, there is no "create license here" that is mentioned in the documentation.
All accounts can create a personal license for home use. To do this, go to the License Management page and click “Create license here” in the Home Use License section to generate your key. Thirty (30) days before your license expires, you can create a new one.
You're right I don't see a "Create license here", but I do see "Create a new license"
In reply to PatrickLee:
Right. That button creates a commercial license - not a home license.
I think I just figured out what's going on. I went to a machine on another network, created an entirely new account, and then I was finally able to see the button.
See my response to your first question about this.
