I have a ZyWall 110 and would like to upgrade the firmware to USG Flex 500 to enjoy further features. Is this possible? or do I need to discard the ZyWall 110 and buy a new HW platform?
Thanks

    Hi @qbit35

    Welcome to Zyxel Community. The Zywall110 cannot be updated to the USG Flex500’s firmware due to they are different model devices. We suggest you can upgrade the hardware to USG Flex 500. The USG Flex 500 can be deployed in on-premise or Nebula mode to provide users more flexible deploy chooses. You can refer to this link to see more of its introduction, thanks.

    You need new hardware, older models do not have the chipsets to function with Nebula.

    Thanks for all replies.
    Actually I am not after Nebula functionality as such, rather IDS/IDP. License for this can no longer be renewed.
    Anyhow, I get it, time to throw the old and in with the new...
