First, I have only 1 client with watchguard hardware (an XTM21 at 1 office and x10e at the other end).

The VPN between them isn't working.  the x10e is out of support.  To buy a year (the  most they offer for that model), it woudl cost $210 with the reinstatement fee (support expired months ago).

Another option they said was to do an trade up and for $450 we could get an XTM25 w/ 1 year of support.

In speaking with them, they said I could buy from NewEgg rather than distributor

would this work?

or this comes with the 1 year of support?

I would say go with the XTM25 with 1 year of support, second option.

Thank you.
