WGXepc64 for Watchguard XTM-2520

  • Hi everyone,

    Long time user of pfsense and lurker of the forums. I thought I might ask a question about a newly acquired XTM-2520 i have. I tried to use the WGXepc64 to change the fan speeds or change the ARM light and I got this error:

    [2.4.3-RELEASE][root@pfSense.local]/root: /WGXepc64 -t
    Firebox not detected.
    If this is a Firebox it's either one we don't know about or it's running a bios we haven't seen.
    Hit the pfsense forums to let us know more.

    Is there anything I can provided to help maybe get this added to the supported list or is there a different version of the app? From what I have gathered its a Lanner - FW-8865.

    pfsense is working just wanted to see what I can do to slow the fans down a bit.

    Let me know if I can provide any other information.

    Thank you!

    Nice! What are the specs on that? You got internal pics? Looks pretty powerful from the hardware guide.

    Unfortunately that's way outside my budget for hardware to experiment with so I've never had the opportunity to poke about with it's fan controls. I doubt it's much different to the XTM-800 though, or any of Watchguards recent Lanner units. Just a matter of identifiying the SuperIO chip in use then poking registers to find how it's connected.

    There are probably some fan settings available in the BIOS though.
