Jump to solution

Hi,

if I buy e.g.1530 from eBay. What features will work without any license?  Will classic firewall and IPSec work? How about IPS?

thank you

What will work, as license will never expire, is Firewall, Identity Awareness, Advanced Networking and IPSec VPN. For IPS see sk44175:

You must have an IPS Software Blade contract to use the full IPS Software Blade functionality on a gateway. If a valid IPS contract is not associated with a gateway:

Protections will be limited to only those protections that were available as of March 2009 (the same protection set that existed when R70 was released). All protections produced after March 2009 will be disabled.

So it may seem that buying support and services in addition to the (cheap?) hardware on Ebay will fix this. But CP appliances are bound by MAC to a CP UserCenter Account. I would not suggest to buy S & S without having the SMB in my own UserCenter Account, and only when you know the (license) MAC your CCSP will be able to see in which Account the Box does belong (if it is CP RMA you could just trash it). If it still belongs to some Company Account it will be very hard to get it in your account, if not impossible (like if it had been stolen) as the former owner has to push it into your Account.
