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.
Hi, we have an XG115w and v18 does not come up when I check for new firmware. Has it been completely rolled out yet? Or do I need to manually update?
The new Release still has no responsive design, this has been asked in the past years .
So after 13 years , would it possible to get a repsonsive design that makes use of 100% screen width?
To everyone: please report the issue by creating a proper thread in the XG Firewall section. Here it is difficult that someone from Sophos reads all comments. Mike Ullrich please open a proper thread and of course a ticket with the support.
Thanks for the cooperation!
Sorry for bad news but again there's something wrong with three out of three new firewall installations... XG330 HA broke and needed to restart AUX device, XG115_1 is crashing every 20 minutes - need to restart and XG115_2 thinks ipsec0 interface is the default gateway. After downgrading to older image (17.5.9) firewall doesn't come up again...
Now I have to stop the project and need to explain customer that his new firewall's seems so be buggy :(
That's terrible news. I'm getting ready to renew as well since we're approaching our third year. I always expect to get at least 5-8 years out of firewalls and switches. Will have to see if Sophos can do hardware refresh like Sonicwalls do.
