             Major Version Release Requires New Activation Codes
                                 ----
                                 
If upgrading from 3.4.x or below, version 3.5.x, requires new activation
codes for the firewall and for all options and features. Activation codes for
registered products can be found in  GTA support under View Products. 


                  Surf Sentinel Feature Activation Code
                                 ----

Surf Sentinel and Surf Sentinel 2.0 are supported in version 3.5.1. The Surf
Sentinel version must be selected on upgrade from versions 3.4.x or below to
3.5.1. When upgrading a firewall with Surf Sentinel activated, the
administrator will be prompted to select Surf Sentinel 2.0 with SurfControl,
or to remain with Surf Sentinel v1. Select the desired version, then enter
the activation code and save. 


                              Netscape/Mozilla
                                   ----
                                   
Version 3.5.1 installs a new default security certificate. Some browsers,
including Netscape and Mozilla, will not recognize the new certificate if
the original has never been replaced. If you are unable to log on to the
GTA Firewall after upgrading, delete the browser security certificate, then
exit and restart.
