Known Issues:

Your switch might not show in the network list in the Plus Configuration Utility. Workaround: Click the REFRESH button or close and launch the ProSAFE Plus Utility again. You might also need to configure your computer�s security software to allow broadcast packets to pass through (to/from) your PC�s UDP ports 63321-63324. To allow this traffic, you can create a rule in your computer�s security software, or temporarily disable the firewall, antivirus programs, or all of these on the computer. If you temporarily disable any security services, be sure to reenable these services when the firmware upgrade is completed.

What works

Everyting I use it for works: querying settings and setting 802.1q VLANs.

For that I did run the EXE installer from the zip archive and let it install Winpcap and Adobe Air, both needed.

Step 2 see "Workarounds"

What does not

Won't work without the workaround; "NetGearServer.exe" keeps crashing.

Running only "NetGearServer.exe" produced the following error:

Error 28 fault: SOAP-ENV:Server [no subcode]
Detail: bind failed in soap_bind()


There is a DLL override necessary for the wpcap library:

run winecfg > Libraries > New override for library > wpcap > Add > Edit > Edit Override > Load Order : Native (Windows)

... the following ends up in the WINEPREFIX\user.reg

[Software\\Wine\\DllOverrides] 1629053171

Which you guys all know of course :)

What was not tested

Nothing beside querying values and setting VLAN was tested
