Release Notes: https://community.sophos.com/xg-firewall/b/blog/posts/xg-firewall-v18-mr4-is-now-available
For XG Appliances, running in Active-Passive, we can accelerate more performance with the new fastpath technology. You should see more performance throughput on XGs running in Active-Passive.
The HA Setup…
Just upgraded from MR3 to MR4 and found one issue.
Manual Pattern Update in airgap environment doesn't work anymore. I can confirm that it worked on MR3.
Uploaded the actual pattern file in WebGui but nothing happened.
Also there is no entry in /log/u2d_airgap.log
For testing purposes I migrated 2 XGs to 18-MR4 and I have the issue that one XG is in Sophos Central Firewall Manager still shown as MR3.
Sophos Central Firewall Manager:
A reboot dosn't resolve the issue.
Two firewalls or one Cluster? How long since the Update? Did you refresh the Cache of your browser?
It is a single filrewall. I've updated the XG yesterday in the morning (it is more than 24 hours ago, the reboot is also more the 24 hours ago). I cleared the browser cache and use a private session, still shown as MR3. I also tested it with another PC, which normaly does not use the Central Console but shown as MR3 too.
I was hoping that there might be some improvements in the daily reports, but no filed agsin, still not very accurate. A good indicator that there is activity on your network only.

After upgrading to v18.04 MR-4 all XFRM/tunnel interfaces used for IPSec Site-to-Site VPNs are gone/missing/ no longer listed at CONFIGURE > Network > Interfaces
Can you show us a screenshot of your WAN Interface? Is it a VLAN Interface on WAN and not expanded?
Still the old version shown in Central? Can you check on the XG Firmware images, that MR4 is actually loaded? Just to be sure?
That sounds like an issue. Can you open a Case and link the Case ID to emmosophos ?
Gosh, I've missed it. Thanks for the hint!
