sonicwall pro 2040
Posted on 2011-05-05
i have a sonicwall pro2040 in place and i have noticed that some downloads never complete downloading.
my PC is part of the 'bypass filter' ip range and i still have issues with these downloads timing out.
one example is MS Windows Updates, but only some of them.
the other day it prompted me to get windows 7 sp1. i let it sit all night long, i came back the next day and it was still sitting at 2%. i bypassed the firewall, completley, and plugged in directly to a linksys router and the download of sp1 quickly passed 2% and completed. i tried on some other w7 machines and experienced the same thing. again, once i bypassed the firewall on those w7 PCs, the download completed w/o any issues.
i subscribe to the content, gateway, and spyware services, but even if i disable those, i still have issues. i am wondering if there is something else that i am missing.
i have a sonicwall tz180 at another office and i have w7 PCs over there that dont have any issues at all with windows updates, specifically w7 SP1.
