Zyxel FTP site gone
« on: October 08, 2021, 03:03:49 PM »

Perhaps I'm missing something but it seems that Zyxel have all but pulled their ftp site. This was at ftp://ftp.zyxel.com/ but that now only has entries for a few NAS devices.
While trying to find out what is going on I stumbled upon this announcement - https://support.zyxel.eu/hc/en-us/articles/360018155520-Security-Announcement-Change-FTP-Service-to-HTTPS-Download-Service - saying that all downloads would move to their Download Library (although it was certainly still working sometime after March of this year). The big problem there is that none of the firmware for older devices is available (eg VMG8924-B10A).
Looks like Zyxel have effectively cut off us users of their older hardware now.

Its probably just a migration to http due to browsers ditching ftp support.  There's really no good reason to be using ftp today.

I've no issue with that part of it but firmware for older devices just isn't available on the http site, so it's a huge retrograde step in that respect.

It is quite bizarre, its not like it should be hard to just throw a web server pointing at the old ftp content.

I've raised a support ticket to see what they say but I'm not holding my breath to be honest.

Sorry for the thread necromancy...

Just a note that at the time of writing, firmware files can be found here:

The link in that site for the VMG8924-B10A doesn't work unfortunately

@majnu  The link has an incorrect repeated text of "https://www.dropbox.com/"  If you delete that it will work, I just downloaded it as I have a VMG8924 as a spare modem/router not in use at the moment.
