    Hi @KFLarsen,

    The latest Geo IP version is 20230518.

    Recently, the Geo-IP DB file cannot be compressed completely and we will fix it in the next version 5.37.

    Hi @MarkoD,

    Recently, the Geo-IP DB file cannot be compressed completely and the issue will be fixed in 5.37. We stop releasing new GeoIP version until 5.37 is released. The database of GeoIP for 5.37(ATP/USG FLEX) and 4.73(USG/ZyWALL) are the same. Hence, the latest GeoIP version for 4.73 also stays at version 20230518. The GeoIP version will start updating after Jul. 10th.

    Ok… didn't read that. Sorry, my bad.

    Recently, the Geo-IP DB file cannot be compressed completely and we will fix it in the next version 5.37.

    On the roadmap, is there a fix for 4.x firmware also?

    On my flex 200 I can update to 20230518 fine it may be the case that Zywall has changed the compressed that stops the older Zywall from being able to update I mean even my USG60W no longer gets the updated AP firmware any more :(

    Dear @Zyxel_Emily,

    Thank you for replying so quicky. Do I understand correctly that USG40/60/W with FW 4.73 will also start to update their GeoIP DB after July 10th?
