For XTM 2, 5, 8, and XTM 1050 Appliances, and WSM
In August, WatchGuard posted Fireware XTM v11.4.2 to the Articles and Downloads section of our Support web page. At the time, we also performed some website and infrastructure changes that prevented us from emailing the 11.4.2 Software Announcement to our qualified customers. To make sure all our customers know about this exciting new update, we are re-posting the original Fireware XTM 11.4.2 announcement here.
Dear WatchGuard Customer,
WatchGuard is excited to release Fireware XTM v11.4.2. Fireware XTM v11.4.2 demonstrates our continuing commitment to quality to WatchGuard customers, with a significant number of bug fixes and enhancements, including:
- Firewall policies can now be applied to intra-VLAN traffic
- Branch office VPN tunnels now work with External Wireless interfaces
- Support for multiple Mobile VPN with SSL policies for different users/groups from Policy Manager
- Other numerous bug fixes and stability enhancements.
In addition to the features and enhancements listed above, 11.4.2 includes numerous smaller enhancements and bug fixes in many different areas of Fireware and WSM.
If you’re an active LiveSecurity subscriber, you can upgrade to Fireware XTM 11.4.2 free of charge. You can install Fireware XTM OS v11.4.2 software on any WatchGuard XTM device, including 2 Series, 5 Series, 8 Series, and the XTM 1050. Although WatchGuard System Manager/Policy Manager v11.4.2 has been designed to manage Fireware XTM v11.3 and Fireware XTM v11.4 devices seamlessly, it is not possible to install Fireware XTM OS v11.4.x on WatchGuard e-Series appliances.
