Sonicwall TZ-170 firmware

Does anyone know where I can find firmware for this?  I bought it used and need to reset to factory default and need firmware.

To get the firmware for the soincwall, you need to create an account at mysonicwall.com. You'll use the serial number, which you can find on the bottom of the appliance, to register it. However, one challenge you are going to have is the sonicwall has already been registered so you will have to request that the registration be transferred to you. Then, you might have access to the firmware. Even then you might have some challenges if you aren't paying maintenance, but I only install and fix the sonicwall appliances, I don't pay for them so I don't have that knowledge.
doesn't the original firmware reside on the firewall?

i thought you could login to the firewall and grab the original firmware.

this is what i see when i log into my sonicwall device

and there is an option to boot or download it.

I have a mysonicwall account, it won't let me transfer, since it already is.

tomdigns, the options are there, but it won't do it.  Maybe it is because it is in safe mode.
if you contact sonicwall support they can work with you on transfering the appliance to your account.

It will have to be soncwall support, if you have no download option in your account.
However if you have not paid maintenance you will have to pay to downlowad the latest firmware.
Since this is a security appliance I recommend using latest firmware.

it is really unreasonable to pay for just updating firmware of this product. how much is it roughly??
