    I am trying to upload to my firewall and I get this error:
    Running command 'C:\FWBuilder41\plink.exe -load fwb_session_with_keepalive -ssh -pw XXXXXX -t -v -l root 192.168.1.4 echo '-**-**-';
    chmod +x /etc/Lower.fw;
    sh /etc/Lower.fw && ( test -f /var/run/shutdown.pid && shutdown -c; echo 'Policy activated' )'
    Looking up host ""
    Connecting to 0.0.0.0 port 22
    Failed to connect to 0.0.0.0: Network error: Cannot assign requested address
    Network error: Cannot assign requested address
    FATAL ERROR: Network error: Cannot assign requested address
    SSH session terminated, exit status: 1
    Firewall policy installation failed

    any ideas where to start trouble shooting this?

    cheers…Jean

    In case anyone else runs in to this, Jean discovered this issue was caused by Putty having the Default settings where the protocol set to Serial instead of SSH.  Until we have an update to work around this we will be adding documentation to let users know that when using Windows version of Firewall Builder they will need to have the Putty default settings set to SSH for the installer to work properly.
