I have a Cisco SA 520W that doesn't seem to respond to two settings in the configuration. I've enabled/disabled/re-enabled various times and still no change in behavior.
The first is PING on the WAN interface. I want to enable it, but the checkbox is cleared and the box still does not respond to WAN pings.
The second is firmware periodic checks. I have put my username and password into the configuration, and left the checkbox empty, but the router consistently (once per hour perhaps) checks cisco.com for updated firmware.
I am running the latest firmware 1.1.21
We have seen some odd behavior on ping from the WAN interface. We are aware of it and looking to address it.
I am not aware of the issue with the firmware check for updates. I will pass this along to the team.
