Hi XG Community!
We've finished SFOS v17.1.2 MR2. This release is available in stages. In first stage it will be available at MySophos. We then start with a small amount of slots and will increase those over time. Later it will be available to all other installations as well.
Please see the following link for further information regarding upgrade - KBA 123285 Sophos Firewall: How to upgrade the firmware.
Code has been optimized for the internal CSC service. Code optimizations have resulted in a reduced memory footprint. The reduced memory consumption supports SFOS v17.1.2 MR2 on the XG85 series.
Important security issues have been resolved in this release and we strongly recommend our customers to upgrade. Please see the following link for further information regarding these issues - KBA 132637 Advisory: Sophos XG Firewall Vulnerabilities reported by Kaspersky Labs.
I am always surprised at the amount of fixes in these updates. It seems like you have to fix everything every update. I know this tech is not easy to maintain, I commend you for all of your hard work, it still crazy.
Release not yet visible in the XG GUI
Just updated my Firewall.
BTW, release to GUI will be a while. you can still update your XG appliance by downloading the file and uploading it to your device.
Downloaded and running on two firewalls. So far so good.
Does this work on the XG-85? I don't see any comments saying it doesn't.
Working Fine from Yesterday. Only Issue with L2TP not working and not fixed from MR1 for Android PIxel2 version 8.01 and new 9 as well .
It is working fine on XG 85, the help isn't working though, because it's not available online for this version.
When are we going to get IPv6 PPPoE???
the design of the UI included in this version is AWESOME!!!!
After the reboot with 17.1 MR2, my firewall was not able to handle the PPPoE Authentication again automatically. Means, I was cut from the internet, until i Dis- and Reconnected my ISP Interface via Firewall GUI. I had this never before so far. This could be an issue for people who are doing Remote Upgrades... Be careful guys.
Furthermore: There have been some changes to the GUI (Especially to the start screen). In the Releasenotes above, I cant find any "fixed Bugs" or "new features" related to that. It would be nice to have complete and honest release notes.
Fine so far. Run up on a 125w, 135w, and a 210.
Go SOPHOS MOPHOS! :-) Keep up the good work.
I did an upgrade on the home firewall yesterday and it went fine. Since today the GUI seems to be a bit slow and unresponsive. I can login to the GUI fine (a bit slow and sometimes takes a few refreshes) but the performance indicator Icon is greyed out. I can't see the CPU utilisation and no system graphs come up. I have restarted the tomcat service but no luck. I check the CPU utilisation through the console and it looks ok (below 2%). Will see if someone else reports this before I try rebooting or try a memory and hard disk test.
E-mail scanning stops working after some time ( Outlook IMAP ), works again after reboot. Issue I thought was solved, came back again.
We upgraded from 16.0.5 to 17.1.2MR2 our XG310 with varios of VPN tunnel. We experienced immediatly a high CPU usage (normaly3 - 7%) after upgrade 40 - 70 %. later on it goes up to 90 the appliance is not responsable.
After reboot it drops back to 40% but after some hours it goes very high again and then freezes.
we had to revert back to 16...
