    Hi @a1601

    Could you config Domain Zone Forwarder to the public DNS server 8.8.8.8 and try to update Geo-IP DB again? As Below:

    We want to check if the root cause is related to DNS resolution for the Geo-IP DB server URL(cdn.cloud.zyxel.com). Thanks.

    It did not help. Also fails to connect to the ntp server 0.pool.ntp.org (and 2.pool.ntp.org). Access settings, rules, etc. have not changed since the last successful update.

    I see some internal error in the logs.

    Ping cdn.cloud.zyxel.com from the local network - sucsessful, but fails from the device.

    If for pinging from the device manually select the "correct" (active) interface WAN1 (two WAN are configured, the second is a backup), then pings from the device is successful. By default (without manual selection) ping goes through an inactive interface. I tried to change DNS settings "Qurey via" from "auto" to the active interface WAN1 - it did not help to update the geoip and time.

    For extrernal IP - Timeout error.
    Internal IP (local NTP server) - sucsessful.

    Hi @a1601

    Once you change to the local NTP server, can you update the Geo-IP database successfully?

    Do you use SYSTEM_DEFAULT_WAN_TRUNK ?

    In routing make this the top rule

    incoming ZyWALL

    service NTP

    next hop your WAN interface

    Then test NTP

    No. use "User Configured Trunk" (with two members: wan1 and wan2). For testing switch to System_default.

    Created this rule. When in the next hop set WAN1 - NTP check succeeds.
