2nd hand NSA 4500 - Can't register.

I bought an NSA 4500 from Goodwill. I had no idea it had to be registered, or that I'd need a license for it. Now I can't register it because it's still linked to another account and I have no idea where it originated. Is there anything that can be done?

    You only need licenses for certain security services. It's pretty usable without service subscriptions.

    • If the device is associated with another device or service in
    • If the current registered owner does not give written permission to transfer

    • If the device is End of Support
