For all the Palo Alto, Juniper and Fortinet users who're reading this, I'm already embarrassed enough. Let's skip the teasing and get to the guts of my question, because I'm sure I ain't the only one running these appliances. And if you're also embarrassed, feel free to PM me.
What's your professional guidance on upgrading their firmwares?
In the contemporarymode at mysonicwall.com, a TZ300 will say the latest firmware is a 184.108.40.206. But if I look in classicmode, all versions are available for download. Classic also reveals that the general release is 220.127.116.11, and that 18.104.22.168 is a recent feature release.
Phone support always pushes for the latest release, but my practice is to stick with the most stable release, and not to upgrade at every turn. So are there any early adopters? All fourteen of you Sonicwall users should respond! Thanks!
