Any use for a symantec gateway security 5420

Created: 21 Dec 2012

I’ve just been given an symantec gateway security 5420, I know the product is now end of life so there is no more licensing for it I was just wondering if there is anything I could do with it and if you could offer me some advice.

Is there any features you can use without the licence.

Can you access SGMI if you don't know what Ip address it was set-up with.

When you turn it on all that's displayed on the display is

Symantec v1.01

OK

Is this normal there doesn’t seem to be any boot procedure as it doesn’t change regardless of how long its left on.

Also you cant access the menu using the front buttons, I presume they have been disabled using SGMI.

If there's nothing you can do with it with Symantec's Software installed I was thinking of installing pfSense or do you have any other suggestions.
