How to upgrade

Firmware upgrades are included at no charge with active WatchGuard support subscriptions. The easiest approach is to use WatchGuard Cloud to schedule upgrades for one or many systems. Individual systems can be upgraded directly from within the WebUI. Admins may also download the applicable packages from the WatchGuard Software Download Center
