    What firewall model do you have and what XTM version is it running?

    Hi @Sokratis

    The firewall uses the Livesecurity servers to locate where you are -- in the Policy manager you have to click the button to download that data from the firewall, but since the WebUI maintains a connection, there's no need to press a button to get that data.

    Make sure that you've specified a DNS server under Network -> Interfaces -> DNS/WINS tab. If the firewall can't resolve domain names it won't be able to find region.

    If it still doesn't work, I'd suggest opening a support case (use the support center link on the top right of the page) so that one of our support representatives can help.

    Thank you,

    I'm running a beta version - 12.6.1.
    I do see the Download button in Policy Manager.
    No idea why you don't on your version.

    I fiigued out what is happening. Every time i restart the Access points , they do not find the country. Country is Unknown. I have to go manually and click the button "View available channels" and the country changes to Greece.
    So, what shall I look for country to be found automatically? check the attached imaga, Download button does not exist...

    I just ended up seeing exactly what you are seeing.
    Country Unknown.
    Then I needed to select View available channels to get the Country of Operation to report United States

    Time for a support incident on this.

    Another point - the link that you posted in your 1st post - is not for WGC, but is for Wireless for W model firewalls which have built in wireless.

    I have a W model and an AP, so I can see both GWC and Wireless.
    The Download button is only for Wireless.
    I see your issue for an AP.
