What To Do

Note – Update packages can be downloaded from Sophos UTM FTP server

Manual Up2Date Package Upload: If your gateway does not have direct access to the Internet or an Up2Date cache to download new update packages directly, you can upload the update package manually. To do so, proceed as follows:


1. Open the Upload File dialog box.

Click the folder icon next to the Up2Date File box.

The Upload File dialog box opens.


2. Select the update package.

Click Browse in the Upload File dialog box and select the update package you want to upload.


3. Click Start Upload.

The update package will be uploaded to the gateway.


4. Click Apply.

Your settings will be saved.

Parent Proxy

A parent proxy is often required in those countries that require Internet access to be routed through a government-approved proxy server. If your security policy requires the use of a parent proxy, you can set it up here by selecting the host definition and port.

Use a Parent Proxy: Select the checkbox to enable parent proxy use. Enter the hostname and the port of the proxy.

This Proxy Requires Authentication: If the parent proxy requires authentication, enter username and password here.

If a parent proxy is configured, Sophos UTM Appliance fetches both firmware and pattern Up2Dates from it.

If you need more information or guidance, then please contact technical support.
