Sophos UTM 9.710-1 update released


This update removes the end-of-life SSLVPN client. It is no longer available to download from the User Portal. For more information see this end-of-life notice and this vulnerability disclosure.

With the standalone IPSec client also reaching end-of-sale on 30 March 2022, we have refreshed the remote access page of the User Portal to better support Sophos Connect. Sophos Connect is the recommended alternative to the old SSLVPN and IPSec clients. Download links on the User Portal now direct users to the Sophos Connect section on our downloads page. Configuration links have been updated to provide certificate packages and settings that can be imported by Sophos Connect to get users up and running quickly.

Sophos Connect client should be able to work with any IPSec or SSLVPN configuration you already have set up. Here are some additional links to help understand how it works.

  1. Good Morning,
    Thanks for your Post
    On my UTM with the latest Firmware, i always get the old SSL VPN Client linked in the UserPortal and not the new Sophos Connect Client.
    Do you have an idea why?
    Please excuse my bad English, I can only speak German

    Kindly Regards from Upper Austria

    1. Hallo Daniel,

      kann es sein, dass du noch die 9.709 hast? Weil auf meiner SG nur noch ein Link zum Connect Client vorhanden ist.
      Auch bei allen Kundensystemen die ich betreue, ist nach dem Update der SSL-VPN Client weg.

      Viele Grüße


  2. Hello Networkguy

    Thanks for your work.
    So do SSLVPN clients that have already been rolled out still work or has the feature been removed altogether on the UTM side?

    Thanks and greetings,

    1. Hello Simon,

      the SSL VPN client is still running without any problems. It can only no longer be downloaded in the user portal and webadmin and it is also no longer updated by Sophos.

      Many greetings


  3. Thank you for the information.

    I wish you continued success with your blog, I’m glad you have the blog and maintain.
