Hello everyone,

I have a zyxel USG FLEX 100 and I need to update it. However, it is in version 4.55 and I would like to upgrade it to 5.21. Normally, I would have to go through intermediate versions but these are not available since the ftp has been closed.

Do you have a link to get the old versions of this firmware or should I update directly to 5.21? In the last case, I would have to do a reset and then restore my configuration?

    I stand by @peteruk suggestion of backing up configuration.
    Which means outside the device, at least 1 copy.
    If something goes wrong, back to defaults then apply.
