    Smoothwall upgrade

    I'm just about to move Smoothwall Network Guardian on to a more capable server - can anyone point me to any useful documentation about carrying over all the settings and maybe where to download the latest build?? Anyone?? Tom??

    You should be able to get the latest build from SmoothWall | Software Download with your serial number. If you can wait, there is a new SP4 update rollup ISO out in the next week or so - not sure on the exact timing.

    As for the settings, create an archive in System > Maintenance > Archives including all the configuration things (aside from Ethernet: this includes MAC addresses so won't work on your new system). Save and backup that, then download it by ticking it and select download.

    Then install as usual (better off not restoring config during install, just do a "normal" install), set IPs and passwords, register, get all the latest updates installed, then go to the same archives page and upload the .tar.gz you downloaded from the old system. Tick that then click restore and it'll let you choose which bits you want to get.

    Any problemos feel free to drop me or support a bell.

    Ta!
