Smoothwall UTM Problem
Recently purchased a UTM-1000, was workin great when i first booted it...but then it was put away until the summer where it will come into commision!
Re-arranged our racking today, and put the smoothwall in place, booted it up and all i get on the LCD is "Network Appliance"...and cannot do anything else and is unaccesable...:S

I'd give Smoothwall Support at tinkle as it sounds like its not wanting to boot to me, but give them a buzz and they will excell at helping as ever

Hey - you could try a serial cable on the console to see what it's up to, details in the manual but should be 9600-8-N-1, or failing that please give support a call.
If the box has been off for a while it may be doing a filesystem consistency check. Although I would have expected it to have finished by now

Just spoke to smoothwall support! = FANTASTIC!
Plugging in a serial console worked a treat and speaking to support, it was trying to run a file system check and it found some errors which needed the root password!
Fantastic support as ever!

Good stuff Well, not the errors, but the response!
Also good to see that was support! = fantastic and not support != fantastic (weak friday afternoon excuse for a joke for all those codemonkeys out there...)
