  • Hello,

    very bad experience for me.
    I upgraded from 19.0.1 to 19.5.1
    After the update, user authentication works poorly, and they have to restart their PC.
    I lost all "ClientLess User" access
    Even when recreating by hand, the firewall does not allow flows to pass.

    I had to revert to 19.0.1, then update to 19.0.2.
    And there, everything works perfectly.

    I can only advise against version 19.5.1 :(

  • Hello  ,
    Have you notice any specific error during clientless user recreation?
    If possible, then please PM me appliance access detail so I can debug further.


  • Hello Bhavik24,

    Sorry, but everything was erased due to firmware rollback.
    I had opened a case with SOPHOS, but it was closed following my switch to 19.0.2

    FYI, when I booted to firmware 19.5.1, absolutely no clientless users appeared in the list of active users (under current activities -> live users).

    After returning to 19.0.1, everything appears again.
    After migration to 19.0.2, everything also appears correctly.

  • There can be (unrelated to the firmware version) issues with the services, providing the clientless users.

    Most likely, if this is the case, it is a one time issue: 

    Restarting the Authentication daemon fixes this and it should not come up again. 


  • thank you for this information which may help other people.

    It's unfortunate that the French Sophos telephone support did not tell me.
    I would have saved a lot of time...
