    1.2 Upgrade Notes   
        
      1.2.1 Error Messages Upon Initial Reboot
    
            Upon rebooting after successful installation, the GTA
            Firewall UTM Appliance may display errors when accessed
            using the Web interface.  This is expected, these errors are
            generated because the browser's cache is trying to access
            files and locations that no longer apply. Click OK to any
            displayed errors and refresh the browser window to access
            GB-OS 5.0.6. If the error messages persist, clear your
            browser's cache.
            
      1.2.2 Surf Sentinel Upgrade Notice
      
            GB-OS 5.0.6 and above includes enhancements to Surf Sentinel 
            category listings. The Surf Sentinel categories will be modified 
            when your GTA firewall is updated to GB-OS 5.0.6. Existing Surf 
            Sentinel categories will be automatically mapped to the enhanced 
            categories included in GB-OS 5.0.6. Please review the Surf Sentinel 
            Feature Guide for details on the category mapping.
            
            GTA strongly recommends reviewing the settings for all (new and 
            automatically mapped) categories and making any necessary revisions 
            to your Surf Sentinel settings and policies to ensure they meet your
            corporate Internet Access Policy.

    1.3 SSL Certificate Replacement

        GB-OS version 5.0.6 will install a new default security/SSL
        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
        firewall after upgrading, delete the browser's cached security
        certificate, then close and restart your browser before
        reattempting remote access to your firewall.
