Howto build a sidewinder 8.3 repository. This can be useful in a fenced environment & where the firewall has no internet access to the forcepoint download site.
1st you need to retrieves the pkgs from the real sidewinder-download site and reconstruct the site, and ensure the pkglist.txt is present in your serving directory.
In my setup I'm using the lite ftp-server ftpdmin. I’ve only installed the packages for hotfix P10 and P11 in the ftp user_directory . It probably best to md5sum or sha1sum check the files to ensure no corruptiom.
After you have set the base directory and installed the package(s) and pkglist.txt you can change the sidewinder appliance to download the pkgs. This will allow the appliance to call out to the ftp-server and download/install the pkgs.
You can monitor the ftpmin process to determine if any transfers exist or failures.
After the installation and reboot, you might have to wait for any aux-updates/upgrades for the console
