- NG Firewall firmware versions 4.2.x
- netfence firmware versions 4.2.x
The Barracuda NG Firewall system is unable to boot successfully. The bootloader stops with a "LI" prompt.
You can configure the Barracuda NG Firewall bootloader (LILO) to write the monitor output to a serial console.
If the bootloader is configured for serial console use, at least the serial interface 1 (COM 1) needs to be activated on the system. If the system does not have any serial interfaces, or if all serial interfaces are disabled in the BIOS the bootloader will hang.
1. Enable serial interface 1 (COM 1) in the system's BIOS.
2. Disable serial console use either in NG Install (if you are installing without a PAR file) or in the configuration of the system (Settings section) (if you are installing with a PAR file).
