Here on Techbast, some tech "How To" for v18:
Screen Shots of interest (Dam it !!! Is that a scoop ???) v18 menu "Rules and Policies" that replaces the menu "Firewall":
Here I noticed three new tabs: "Firewall Rules", "NAT Rules", and "SSL/TLS Inspection rules". "Disable Rule" and "Delete Rule" are groupable and relocated. Also note the disabled "Drop All" I was told by Sophos techs not to ever do. Never knew why. Many filtering options.
You guys noticed "Create linked NAT rule", "Web Filtering", "Configure...Heartbeat" ? Actualy, the "Advanced Section" was replaced entirely. "Nat & Routing" is gone essentialy because NAT is now decoupled.

Hmmmm yeah I thought the same.
STAS needs to go and bring back the UTM style. I know there are some technical reasons why STAS is better but I find it quite bad. Something directly Domain joined for Auth is much more reliable.
Lets see what other wee gems come out of V18

On my side, I know that Symantec client works, with no orgie-install, and with an absolute reliability. When I say install, I meant click, click , click , go.
can anyone tell me what it looks like with the changes in IPSec in v18? Is IKEv2 possible for Remote Access and Sophos Connect?
In reply to Steppenwolf:
Look at links provided before.
PDF "Help" document, under "VPN" or do a search for "IPSec".
Better rush. Documents have started to disappear on the WEB.
Hello Steppenwolf, IKE v2 for Remote Access is planned for XG v18.5.
In reply to alda:
But. We can connect VPN site to site with IKEv2 ... Rigth ?
it is true, the IKE v2 for IPsec site-to-site topology is supported.
Cabral 10 years, good choice. But for a really special celebration I recommend
v18 running at Home.
NAT menu. Very classic and self explainatory.
EVERYONE WILL LOVE IT.
Could you show me reports? Do they show hostnames? I tried loading it on my spare XG105 with 4GB ram installed but it says "Unable to Load this firmware, please check online help"
In reply to apalm123:
v18 checks if your device is above XG105. Anything that is not XG86, XG106, or XG115 and higher, is discarded no matter what. Installers does not check for minimal hardware. Like memory or disk space. It checks the appliance model. It is true with the update. it is also true with a firmware update using the ISO file.
You will not install v18 on an XG105. At least, not easily.
