I made a mistake while configuring my BN F800 NG Firewall. I need to reset the NG firewall to its original factory settings to configure it from scratch. I can console into the F800 with my SSH client and get into ART.


What do I need to do to execute a complete back to the F800's original settings before I started configuring it?

I don't know if there is a command, but the quickest way is to power off, attach the USB-Stick, Power on, go for a coffee and if the display shows "system down" then take the USB Stick off and power off/on.

Should take around 5 Minutes.


This will repartition/reformat the disk and install the software from the stick with factory settings.


Except if you have a *,par File on the stick. Then it will try to load that config.

Nothing to add to what Stefan wrote, except if you never did this before here is the Techlib link describing a USB key recovery: https://techlib.barr...G60/USBRecovery
