You can always do a hard reset to the soho, but backup your system settings for this will factory reset the box because it will erase everything!
1) Unplug any devices from the all ports.
2)Unplug power cord.
3)Use paperclip to hold reset button.
4)While continuing to hold the reset button plug the power back in.
5)Watch the status light in front, when it turns on(the red light) wait until it turns back off, then release the reset button.

The whole reset process is about a one minute wait for the status light.

I have a Watchguard Firebox x10e and i can not log into it


To recover your Firebox X Edge e-Series device, you must first reset the Edge to its factory default settings, and then FTP the Edge v10.x appliance software to the Edge.
To set the Firebox X Edge e-Series to the factory default settings:
  1. Disconnect the power supply.
  2. Hold down the Reset button on the rear side of the Edge.
  3. Connect the power supply while you continue to hold down the Reset button.
  4. Continue to hold down the button until the yellow Attn light stays on. This shows you that the Edge was successfully restored to the factory default settings.
    This process can take 45 seconds or more.
To FTP the Edge v10.x appliance software to the Edge:
  1. Copy the Edge v10 upgrade file (yakfw.sysa-dl) to the root of your C: drive.
  2. Edit the network settings on your computer so that it is part of the 192.168.111.0/24 subnet.
  3. Connect your computer to any of the LAN interfaces on the Edge.
  4. Open a command prompt.
    To open a command prompt, select Start > Run. Type cmd and press Enter.
  5. Type ftp 192.168.111.1 and press Enter. When prompted, enter the user name admin and the password admin. Press Enter.
  6. Type bin. Press Enter.
  7. Type put yakfw.sysa-dl. Press Enter.
  8. Type bye. Press Enter.
  9. Type exit. Press Enter.
    The command prompt window closes.
  10. Power cycle the Edge.

Can't connect firewall


Have you checked the subnet? i.e. 255.255.225.248, make sure both PC and firewall are set the same.

Check the firewall settings on the PC, for port 80, 8080 & 443 and the ip address of the unit if you connecting with web access.

Try to up the IP on the PC to 169.254.236.185, it some times does not like being before the device.

Aslo, some times the PC needs to have the network port reset, as windows keeps the old IP address, but shows the new. The quick way to check this, is to disable the network connection and then enable it again.

Setting up a VPN through watchguard


The key with any VPN solution is to make sure that the configurations on both ends match. I am not very familiar with this particular product, but it looks like you need to have the proper VPN licenses installed first. There are two types of VPN you can do. 1) Site to Site - This is where the are two static boxes that you want to create an encrypted tunnel between 2) Remote User access - This is where mobile users connect to a central site over an encrypted tunnel from their home or on the road. Next, take a looks at the User Guide PDF here: https://www.watchguard.com/help/documentation/soho6.asp Chapter 10 tells how to configure the VPN on the Firebox side. You would just duplicate your settings if your doing option #1. Chapter 11 tells how to configure the VPN on the client side. This section would tell you how to configure the client software for option #2. Hope this helps.
