Hi XG Community!

To manually install the upgrade, you can download the firmware from the Licensing Portal. Please refer to Sophos XG Firewall: How to upgrade the firmware.
Hello PMParth ,
thanks for the update, when can we expect the XG v18 MR 2/3 release?
I am on 17.5.1 MR13 currently, should I upgrade to this and then go to version 18 or just go directly to 18.0.1 MR1?
Where can we find more details about the resolved issues? I'm specifically looking for more details on:
NC-30728 [SSLVPN] Compression settings not applied for IPv4 and IPv6 (SSLVPN remote access). Basically configuration settings for comp-lzo attribute are incorrect in the ovpn file.
NC-59080 [SSLVPN] Performance improvements in SSLVPN (Site to Site)
If you have problems with the webfilter after upgrade to MR-14: In my case loads of websites did not load correctly. This is because in MR-14 the file types group “executeables” have been modified:
Create a clone of the group and use the setting from MR-13 - this resolves the problem.
XG Firewall updates are now like Microsoft Cumulative Updates - poorly tested and often broken.
Sophos, collate your excrement and raise the quality bar.
This update is broken. Workaround for the brokenness is documented here - community.sophos.com/.../135799
we also have a problem with several site2site vpn connections to a unifi. these worked fine up to mr13. yesterday i tested all day the different settings with mr14 but no chance. back to mr13 and immediately the vpns were connected again.
