Following on the footsteps of the XG Firewall v18 Early Access Program (EAP) 1 firmware release, the first Refresh version is now available for download. To get the latest release, go to the XG Firewall v18 EAP page.
Note: if you've already registered for the v18 EAP and upgraded your XG Firewall firmware, there's no need to re-register to gain access to the v18 Refresh 1 release. You will see a notice in the firewall UI to upgrade through the Up2Date service.
In addition to the Refresh firmware, we've updated the "Known Issues, Advice for Users, and Incomplete Features" document with new information.
Please remember, this is still an early build of the v18 release so there are some things we’d like to bring to your attention before you download the firmware and begin testing it.

Regarding the box of both xg85,86, 105,106 as you mentioned before that they will not get the new v18, is it will be hold in the old v17.5 or it will be new firmware with light edition or less features
Since the refresh 1 package shows only DDNS fix, we strongly believe that in the refresh 1, it was the only fix fixed. Again, thanks for the "complete" information! Be PROFESSIONAL and release what you have really fixed. Thanks
Tested the rollback tonite, and it failed. Be "wary". I had both v18EAP1 and v17.5.8 firmware on the appliance. v18EAP was updated to v18EAP1-Refresh1 erasing in the process v17.5.8. But since then it fails to upload v17.5.8 and replace the old v18. No more easy revert back.
And by the way, XG105 can be upgraded to 4 gig in seconds. It it just a matter of minimalistic willingness. So be technically honest and stop writing it cannot.
Is there an "Issues Resolved" document specific to refresh 1 ?
