The Management > Up2Date > Advanced tab lets you configure further Up2Date options such as selecting a parent proxy or Up2Date cache for your Sophos UTM.

Note – Update packages can be downloaded from Sophos UTM Downloads.

Manual Up2Date Package Upload: If your Sophos UTM does not have direct access to the Internet or an Up2Date cache to download new update packages directly, you can upload the update package manually. To do so, proceed as follows:

  1. Open the Upload File dialog window.

    Click the Folder icon next to the Up2Date file box.

    The Upload File dialog window opens.

  2. Select the update package.

    Click Browse in the Upload File dialog window and select the update package you want to upload.

  3. Click Start Upload.

    The update package will be uploaded to Sophos UTM.

  4. Click Apply.

    Your settings will be saved.

Parent Proxy

A parent proxy is often required in those countries that require Internet access to be routed through a government-approved proxy server. If your security policy requires the use of a parent proxy, you can set it up here by selecting the host definition and port.

Use a parent proxy:

  1. Select the checkbox to enable parent proxy use.
  2. Select or add the host.
  3. Enter the port of the proxy.

    How to add a definition is explained on the Definitions & Users > Network Definitions > Network Definitions page.

  4. Click Apply.

    Your settings will be saved.

Proxy requires authentication: If the parent proxy requires authentication, enter username and password here.

Note – The parent proxy is disabled when the option Use SUM Server as Up2Date Cache is enabled on the Central Management > Sophos UTM Manager tab.

If a parent proxy is configured, Sophos UTM fetches both firmware and pattern Up2Dates from it.
