Remote Reboot the Firewall SSG-5 !

Hi !

 

I am a fresh user of SSG-5 firewall for about 3 months.  Recently users cannot connect Internet through the firewall.  ISP replied that there is no problem to their Internet Circuit but requested us to reboot the Firewall.  At this moment, I discovered that there is no way to reboot/restart the Firewall under WebUI accessing.   I need to manually unplug the power adapter and plug on again to restart.  Internet connection is resumed.

 

Can any expert tell me how to reboot the Firewall remotely ?

 

Can we telnet into the Firewall and input the "Reboot" command ?

 

 

Thanks for your reply !

 

Regards,

Edward

You can either telnet or SSH and run the command:

 

reset

 

that will do a reboot.

Hello,

 

You can reboot the firewall through the webUI:

Configuration - Update - ScreenOS/Keys: RESET

I personally like to use SSH and simply run the following command:

 

"reset" and then press "y" thats all.
