Default and maximum memory per VS in VSX R80.10

Since R80.10 virtual systems are 64 bit, how is the memory allocation per VS instance works in it and could the amount of RAM for VS's be configured either globally or per VS?

R80.30 broke FTP

Had a client that wanted to use the new URL filtering features of R80.30.Upgraded them on Monday morning (yesterday morning early) they are a media house and they do alot of file transfers for their content to get printed and posted etc (yes I know it should be encrypted with ftps or scp rather but that is another discussion) and R80.30 seemed to break this entirely.First after a couple of hours of troubleshooting I resorted to allowing any service/any port from the servers sending the ftp traffic - this seemed to quell the issue for a short time but they still had intermittent failures yesterday afternoon. Furthermore no changing of active/passive ftp types on the client side made any difference. Today alot more was not working and the IT guys were getting alot of heat which was being passed down to us. I tried to log a high ticket with TAC etc but after 2 hours of no traction and the any service /any port allow not being a viable workaround we have to revert to the R80.20 snapshots. As soon as R80.20 snapshots reverted all the FTP's from all the servers worked instantly. So not sure if anyone else out there has R80.30 running and have issues with FTP traffic - let me know . (I did install R80.30 in our lab and try and recreate the problem in the live environment - but could not. The client is using ISP redundancy with Load Sharing - perhaps this is causing the issue but no way of knowing now .)(Also the drop reasons were for the dynamic ports as if the firewall did not understand the FTP protocol or the ports it was dynamically assigning . or some cryptic fwpslglue_chain Reason: PSL Drop: xxx yyy xxx yyy . That was not usual or searchable on the knowledgebase or in CheckMates.)I am a bit sad that my first R80.30 in production was so short lived 😞

Anti-Bot is not working as expected

Hi everyone!I'm do testing Anti-Bot software blade in R80.30 and found something that looks like does not work as expected.The Security Gateway is able to block definitely with Medium Confidence but if High Confidence does not work and the site test is bypassed, please see screenshots and explanations belowHere are the URLs that I used for Anti-Bot test purpose 1st screenshot.I have already enabled and configured profile on Activation Mode, both High and Medium confidence are Prevented, only Low confidence will be detected.2.nd screenshot.Test Anti-Bot with High Confidence by connecting to found nothing blocking from the gateway and any logs ) The user could access the site. 3rd screenshot. Test Anti-Bot with High Confidence by connecting to Gateway was able to block this site definitely as expected due to this site is detected as a Medium Confidence level. 4th screenshot. Test Anti-Bot with High Confidence by connecting to Gateway was able to detect this site definitely as expected due to this site is detected as a Low Confidence level. 5th screenshot, Test Anti-Bot with High Confidence by connecting to Gateway wasn't able to block this site as expected. And from the logs found it appears to redirect an action My question is why does the security gateway is not able to block the site and Anyone has any ideas on this. Really appreciate every comment.

AWS BGP Graceful Restart

Does anyone know if AWS supports the BGP "Graceful restart" option?We have an issue similar to: we have an on-prem ClusterXL GW's uplinked to AWS Direct Connect, and failovers cause a brief outage. Also, what is the harm in enabling without first confirming if supported/enabled on the peer?

Configuring 2FA with DynamycID in R77.30 - HTTP Post request to SMS Provider

Hi,I'd like to configure the DynamicID authentication in SSL VPN in order to configure the 2FA in a R77.30 environmentI already configured the Mobile Access blade and I have already some native applications pubblished. Users are able to reach the portal and to log in by using the first factor.Based on the documentatio, in order to configure the 2FA, i have to type the URL of my SMS provider in Authentication tab.All variables of the request (credentials of SMS Provider, text of the message and cellphone) must be included int the URL. Ex:$USER&password=$PASSWORD&text=$TEXT&phone=$PHONEUnfortuntately, the sms provider that I'm trying to use, needs to receive the credentials in the HEADER or the request. For this reason, I'm not able to configure it.Do you know if it's possible to modify the Header of the HTTP POST call done by the Gateway when it tries to comunicate with the SMS Provider?I only need to add user and password.Or is there a feasible alternative to interact with that SMS Provider?Thanks for your attention.

Zoom Meeting Issues with SecureXL

Hi there,We're having issues with zoom meetings when SecureXL is turned on. The meeting connects and runs fine for ~15 mins before one end will appear to freeze (video and audio) and eventually disconnect (although users usually notice first and restart it themsleves before it disconnects. This will repeat itself until we turn SecureXL off.The thing is, SecureXL can be turned on for a number of days or even weeks with multiple zoom meetings happening per day before we see any issues. We saw this issue in R77.30 and it remains even since we've migrated to R80.30. I suppose it could still be unrelated or there may of course be something else at play.Hardware is a pair of 15400 applianes (ClusterXL).I have a TAC case open but obviously they want logs etc. from the time the issue is occuring which are hard to provide as the focus was on turning off SecureXL at the time to get the meeting running smoothly and we can't really turn it back on and risk breaking more meetings due to the nature of them.I have been trying to reproduce the issue through a pair of 3100s running R80.30 with SecureXL turned on without success. But obviously there are many differences here (it could be speific to that hardware...).Obviously we'd rather have it turned on, so I was just wondering if anyone had seen any similar issues and had any advice?Many thanks in advance.Josh

Office Mode IP Failure

Hi. A few of our users have had an issue connecting to our VPN, they've been getting the "Office Mode IP Assignment failure - all IP address were allocated or the user is not authorized to receive an IP address from the gateway" error.From what I can tell, it might be because we don't have enough licenses for everyone to connect. I have used the following commands to get a look at how many licenses are in use:fw tab -t om_assigned_ips -sfw tab -t sslt_om_ip_params -sThe affected users have tried connecting via SNX and the Mac Endpoint Security client. My question is: how can I find out how many licenses we are covered for or is there another cause for this?Many thanks.

RAID Configuration for HP DL380 Gen 10

Looking at deploying a new Multi-Domain Log Server running R80.20 on a DL380 Gen10. I'm aware the new 3.10 kernel eliminates the 2TB array restriction and wanted to know if there are any limitations or recommendations to the RAID configuration.
