Up2Date 7.100 for ASG 7.1 BETA released

This is the official ASG V7.100 release for all BETA testers. Installing this release will update your installation from 7.091 to 7.100. Please read the official 7.100 announcement for all details. Within next 24 hours we will shut down the BETA Up2Date server.

Please use manual upload of the Up2Date, if your BETA installation did not download this Firmware Up2Date to your ASG. We will provide Firmware Up2Date download via our FTP/HTTP download server for several days.  


  • System will reboot after Up2Date
  • Existing configuration will not be changed
  • Customers upgrading from versions prior to 7.100 MUST re-join the Firewall to the AD domain if they use SSO. In order to join the AD domain, the firewall must find a DC (Domain Controller) machine. In previous versions, this was done with a NetBIOS broadcast.
  • Starting with ASG 7.100, pure AD (native) mode is used, which in turn requires finding the DC with a DNS lookup. There are also more strict requirements on DNS resolution and time differences. The following conditions must be met:
    – The time zone on the firewall and the DC must be the same.
    – There MUST NOT be a time difference of more than five minutes between the firewall clock and the DC clock.
    – The ASG hostname must exist in the AD DNS system.
    – The ASG must use the AD DNS as forwarder, or must have a DNS request route for the AD domain which points to the AD DNS server.
