Automatic Updates

The Cipafilter can be configured to automatically install firmware updates by selecting the appropriate "Enabled" option under Automatic Update.  It is recommended for most installations to use Enabled — Latest Stable Firmware.


Each time an automatic update is installed (typically between 22:00 and 02:00), an e-mail notification will be sent to the Notification Address.

Manual Update

The Cipafilter firmware can be manually updated by simply clicking Firmware Upgrade under this section. The firmware upgrade process typically takes 2–5 minutes including the time required to restart the Cipafilter.
