maybe someone can answer that question for me. Sorry in advance: I am from Germany and my English is not so good. I got a Sophos UTM 220 from my instructor (I'm a trainee in the company) to play/try out, because we got 2 new Sophos firewalls.
I have a few questions about this:1) Is there a license for private use which allows me to use the UTM 220 completely with all functions? Are there licenses for apprentices?I would just like to learn more about it and try it out, but it's not so good on production systems. :-D2) Can I update the OS so that I have the new interface?3) I tried to log in via SSH to see which kernel etc. is installed. But I can't access the console because the password is not correct. Is this because of the missing license ? (I changed the password in the setup)4) The instructions say that the Sophos is at 192.168.2.100 on re-initialization (reset). However, the adapter (eth0) initializes to 192.168.0.1. Is this normal or has there been a change during an update? Or did something go wrong with the reset? (I reached the UTM after I adjusted it, but not as described in the manual)5) Are the fans controlled by PWM? I don't think I can create this workload at home that the UTM gets hot. It is still terribly loud. :-D
It would be just great if it could replace my fritzbox, I could have a DMZ for my services from outside and thus get rid of my VPSs.
It would be nice if someone would answer my questions, even if they sound like they are from a beginner.

UTM220 is basically End of Life. So the Hardware is "dead".
Which means, you could actually install whatever you want on this hardware.
There is something called UTM Home or XG Home.
This Software is for "home usage".
Both Software versions (XG and SG) are not for commercial usage!
Basically you could install this on a UTM220 Hardware and use this hardware appliance as a Software appliance.
There are many people using this, take a look into the community : https://community.sophos.com/products/unified-threat-management/f/hardware-installation-up2date-licensing/29720/home-use-license-on-utm-appliance
Hallo Marvin and welcome to the UTM Community!
Did you realize that there's a very active German Forum here? The UTM was originally developed in Germany.
In fact, there's a very useful post in German: https://community.sophos.com/products/unified-threat-management/f/german-forum/77820/sophos-utm-220-display/
