Hans,

Thank you for this guide.

Just to mention that the link for the FW_Upgrade_V8 is incorrect (takes you to Console cable page).

Also - I am running my Shield in Bridge mode, running 1.51 SP1. My IPS rules update every night (as confirmed on the Status page).  Can I assume everything is ok, or do I need to do anything else to keep Shield doing it's job?

Sorry, just a little confused about what (if anything) MUST be done to keep this working. I'd rather not tinker unless absolutely necessary.

Thanks again
-T

Hi, Hans I change the Scheduled tasks  to the Following in router mode but it did not update IPS at 1:00 AM


Scheduled tasks you can replace it with the following:

# daily at 01:00 - upgrade IPS rules
0 1 * * * 0 sh /sbin/fw_upgrade
# daily at 00:00 - sync clock
0 0 * * * /usr/sbin/ntpclient -s -p 123 -h 0.us.pool.ntp.org || /etc/init.d/ntpclient restart

looks like a typo breda, remove the 0 after * * *

I think it should read 0 1 * * * sh /sbin/fw_upgrade
