New to XG Firewall?
If you’re new to XG Firewall, see how it provides the world’s best network visibility, protection and response on the new XG Firewall website.
Hello FloSupport, at MySophos portal are now only updates. But I need an ISO for a new installation. When will they be available?
SFOS v18 is the most substantial and innovative firewall release in Sophos’ history. Kudos and thanks to everyone who played a part in getting this out!
Hi alda - link is already given in this page click on it download the fresh image based on your platform.
Where are the fixes for NC-54540 and NC-51956 ? I still have issue with DPI turned on.
Has there been any changes from EAP3 Refresh to GA?
Just upgraded from 17.5MR9 to v18 - all I can say is my goodness it's fast - much better performance through the firewall than with V17.5 MR(1-9)
Some nice new features and improvements, but IPv6 support is still underwhelming. It's embarrassing that a sub-$100 consumer router has better IPv6 capabilities - which is what I'm having to use to get IPv6 connectivity with my ISP (IPv6 DHCP-PD).
I like it. It is fast. Thank you. After the issues I had with releases 17.5 MR5 - MR7. I was skeptical. But you have delivered a good release.
As I already suggested, when new console commands are released, please share them inside the MR or GA release notes. Reading all the time, again, the full command list is time consuming.
Missing WAF creation option:
Can anyone confirm that the waf creation button is missing under: Rules and policys --> Firewall Rules --> Add Firewall Rule
I can only choose "New Firewall Rule" and Server Access Assistant"
It is an fresh install of the SFOS 18.0. With the Upgrade from EAP3 to GA there where some issues with SSL traffic, which was declared by the firewall as invalid traffic. After the clean install this issues are gone. Now i want to set up WAFs, but the creation button for WAF is missing...
4ng3er WAF option now is under Action (Allow, Drop, Reject and Protect with...). I do not like this approach but they moved to "actions"
Too bad for anyone with XG Rev 1 hardware, no support beyond v18, won't be able to upgrade to v18.5 or higher. Even XG 115-210 Rev 2 users are screwed, some of the early rev XG hardware out there is not that old. Going to be a tough job explaining to the customer who just bought their XG hardware not that long ago that they now have to upgrade again if they want all of the benefits of the latest firmware.
where did you get that info? all XG rev 1?
