    Hello All,

    We have the HF builds available for Gen6 and Gen7 firewall models. Engineering team is still working on the fix for the Gen5/SOHO. For your reference the Issue IDs are below.

    Gen5 Firewalls: GEN5-71

    Gen6 Firewalls: GEN6-4189

    Gen7 Firewalls: GEN7-46209

    Please contact Technical Support via web cases so that we can share the hotfix builds. If your firewall is Gen7, then please specify which firmware baseline you would like to have for the HF build, ie. 7.0.1 or 7.1.1.

To address this concern, our engineering team has initiated an internal investigation, and the progress is being monitored under the Issue ID GEN7-46209. Rest assured that we are actively working to resolve this issue and appreciate your patience as we investigate and address the reported challenges.

    The issue has been started on Jan 11th and its affected Gen5, Gen6 & Gen7 Firewall units and created support ticket as well.

    Initially I thought its affected Gen5 units only because one of the Gen5 certificate (EE Certification Centre Root CA) showing "Bad time value". (The firewall time zone configure properly)

    We do have more than 100+ Firewalls deployed across the GCC.

    After the Dyn fixed their API issue, Tested from Windows Dyn updater client and its working fine but Sonicwall showing network failure error.

    I raised the complaint with Dyn Service provider and they are telling the issue due to your Firewall vendor.

    Hello @Ajishlal

    I think the issue is pinpointed by our engineering/QA team, but I don't have the ETA and any further information. I will share as I have more information. Thanks for your understanding.

    what about the SOHO W which is loaded OS 6.

  • MustafaAMustafaA SonicWall Employee

    Hello @Ajishlal

    Since SOHO-W uses the Gen6 firmware, we have the HF build available.

    Kindly share the HF for SOHO W too please.

    Hi - I have never been able to afford to pay for support. Does that mean the working firmware is unavailable to me? If one of you lovely people would be so kind as to share it with me, I'd be very grateful.

    I'm using a TZ300 for my home. I'm not running a business.
