Hi XG Community!
We've released SFOS v17.5.9 MR9 for the Sophos XG Firewall. Initially, the firmware will be available by manual download from the Licensing Portal. We then make the firmware available via auto-update to a number of customers, which will increase over time.
Please visit the following link for more information regarding the upgrade process: Sophos XG Firewall: How to upgrade the firmware.
To manually install the upgrade, you can download the firmware from the Licensing Portal. Please refer to Sophos XG Firewall: How to upgrade the firmware.
Will version v.17.5.9 be still developed with solutions that we know from v.18?
Had an issue with IPSEC VPN to a Sonicwall constantly dropping when re-keying. Had to revert back to our previous version, which then bricked one of the devices in HA. Great fun working through the night until 6:00am to fix everything!!
There is only one thing I want from Sophos with their firmware updates:
A working VPN connection with every update. Seems a gamble mostly.
2 years since going live with Sophos XG210, it's been a rollercoaster ride. Unfortunately, it still is!
Even I, after the update I also getting a lot of reports due to client authentication and VPN frequent reconnection issue. Do we have any resolution for this?
After upgrading to this version now my CPU is pegged at 100% utilization. I have opened up a support ticket for it. No VPN issues so far but we are having internet performance issues which I can only assume is because of this problem.
Patched 2 330's in HA. No issues. VPN is working fine too.
