Sophos XG on NBN FTTN

Has anyone installed a Sophos XG onto a Fibre to the Node (FTTN) service on Australia's NBN? 

What was your experience like?

  • Hi S248,


    Please advise if you had any luck configuring Sophos XG on NBN FTTN


    Appreciate any assistance




  • Hi Ruka,


    SRW's previous replies answer your question in full. I can confirm, I have it working for NBN, with and without VLAN tags, with this threads replies

  • Hi Paul,

    Thanks for your message , just an overview on my current setup. I have installed Sophos XG on a mini PC that has four N/W ports. Port 2 has WAN and Port 1 and Port 3 are configured with LAN subnets

    When i tried to connect Port 2 directly to NBN NTD and tried to enter PPPoE details , its not been accepted.

    My question was is there any other hardware that i need to install on the Mini PC like Sophos VDSL module for the Mini PC to recognize

    My ISP Provider is TPG and i dont have static IP from them

    Appreciate any assistance

    Have a good day



  • Hi Raku,

    when configuring your WAN interface, you select PPPoE, inout the details, then scroll down to DSL and enable the VDSL setting. I looked ta the TPG site and could not find which VLAN id is required, might be provided by yhte configuration as you login.


    V18.0.x - e3-1225v5 6gb ram on 4 port MB with AP55/c - 20w. 
    If a post solves your question use the 'This helped me' link.
  • Hi Ian,

    Thanks for those details, i believe VLAN ID for TPG is 2.

    Anyways will give that a shot and let know how it goes

    Appreciate your help

  • If you're using NBN FTTN you need a VDSL Modem. For Sophos XG devices, the Sophos VDSL Modem will work fine. If your using a mini PC with Sophos XG installed you'll need to find a TPLink, Billion, Netgear, etc that has a VDSL modem and supports bridged mode.

  • Hi srw,

    I'm using NBN FTTN at home. I have TP-Link VR600 v2. It has bridge mode options, but i havent enabled it yet

    Currently TP-Link WAN port is connected to NTD ) , and LAN port from TP-Link is connected to Mini PC Port 2 which has IP ( static )

    My doubt is , is this the right way to set it up or should i be enabling bridge mode

    Appreciate your cooperation
