Zu beachten beim Upgrade einer XTMv von 11.x => 12.x

beim Upgrade einer XTMv kann es passieren, daß auf einem oder mehreren Interfaces keine Kommunikation mehr stattfindet. Der Grund hierfür liegt darin, daß die Erkennung der Interface-Reihenfolge bei der XTMv geändert wurde.

Aus dem Artikel aus der Knowledgebase:

On a FireboxV or XTMv on a VMWare ESXi server, after you upgrade from Fireware v11.x to v12.0, communication might be lost on one or more interfaces.

In Fireware v11.x and lower, Firebox interfaces correspond to ESXi interfaces based on the order in which ESXi interfaces become active.

In Fireware v12.0, Firebox interfaces correspond to ESXi interfaces based on the MAC address value of the ESXi interfaces. For example, the lowest ESXi MAC address is assigned to Firebox eth0, and the next lowest MAC address is assigned to eth1.

Empfohlener Workaround:

Before you upgrade from Fireware v11.x to v12.0, configure the ESXi MAC addresses in increasing order by the ESXi interface number. This ensures that the Firebox interfaces correspond to the ESXi interfaces in increasing order.

 

Neues Software Release Fireware 11.12 Update 1 und WSM 11.12 Update 1

On 21 December, WatchGuard released Fireware v11.12 Update 1, a maintenance update for Fireware v11.12 that resolves several outstanding issues.For information about the issues resolved in the Update 1 release, see Enhancements and Resolved Issues. We have updated these release notes for Fireware v11.12 Update 1 but most information related to Fireware v11.12 remains the same.

 

Neues Software Release Fireware 11.12 und WSM 11.12

Fireware 11.12 and WSM 11.12

WatchGuard is pleased to announce the release of Fireware v11.12 and WatchGuard System Manager v11.12. In addition to resolving many outstanding bugs, we’re pleased to announce these new features and functions for our Firebox users:

ConnectWise Integration

With Fireware v11.12, we deepen our integration capabilities with ConnectWise, a leading Professional Service Automation tool used by many managed service providers, to add support for the auto-synchronization of asset information, including subscription start and end dates, device serial numbers OS versions, etc., as well as closed-loop ticketing of system, security, and subscription events.

Threat Detection and Response

Built using technology acquired with Hexis, Threat Detection and Response (TDR) is our new cloud hosted security service that detects malware activity, correlates it with network events, and proactively responds to malware on endpoints. This release includes support for TDR, which is currently in Beta. Click here to join the TDR beta program.

Geolocation Service

With the Geolocation service, you can prevent malware communication and attacks from areas where you never have any need for legitimate business communication. Available as part of your Reputation Enabled Defense (RED) security subscription.

Dynamic VPN Tunnels to Azure

Hybrid cloud environments are becoming much more common, where companies have moved some workloads to cloud services such as AWS or Azure, but some key applications remain on premise. Secure VPN communication is needed between the on premise application and the cloud. Previously we supported only a single static or policy-based tunnel to Azure. Now we add the ability to have multiple tunnels, even with dynamic routes and failover between them.

IPv6 Support in Services and Proxies

WatchGuard firewalls have IPv6 Gold logo certification, but previously application proxies and the full set of security services were not supported. Now customers can apply full range of security services, including WebBlocker for content filtering and APT Blocker and Gateway AV to prevent malware in IPv6 environments.

Services and Proxies Enabled by Default

Customers that buy the appliance with Basic or Total Security Suite often neglect to turn on the security services that they have purchased. Now, services will be enabled by default during the initial setup wizard with a secure set of default settings to save time and simplify the initial setup for everyone.

Gateway Wireless Controller

This release introduces several updates to the Gateway Wireless Controller, including auto channel selection to enable smoother deployments without channel conflict, and a new repeater mode that allows access points to communicate over the air without a physical Ethernet connection.

FireCluster with DHCP on External Interface

If your ISP provides external-facing interface IP addresses by DHCP, you can now enable an active/passive FireCluster to provide high availability.

X-forwarded Information from Header in Logs and Dimension

If a company uses an explicit proxy service or a web gateway, like WebMarshal, all of the information in Dimension shows only the IP address for that proxy. Now we can go a level deeper and find the original source IP address and show this in Dimension, too.
