What are the Untangle Support policies?

Support Policy

Untangle support is available to customers who have purchased a Live Support subscription (included in our NG Firewall Complete package). If you do not have a Live Support subscription we recommend visiting our various online self-help pages:

  • Forums - Untangle’s user forums are robust and very active. They’re a great resource. You can find the forums at http://forums.untangle.com/.

  • Wiki - Untangle’s Wiki site is another great resource, full of information - including links to all of our products’ store pages, user forums, and FAQs. Our Wiki site is located at http://wiki.untangle.com/index.php/Main_Page.

  • Support Page - Customers can also access the Untangle support portal at http://support.untangle.com, where they will be able to view our knowledgebase articles and solutions.

Support tickets can be generated a number of ways. Users can submit a ticket by doing any of the following:

Response Times

We're only able to respond to support requests during our normal hours of operation. Responses are provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Our median first-response time for support tickets not generated via phone call is 2 business hours. Our average hold time is 60 seconds.

NOTE: We cannot control phone call volume so we cannot guarantee hold times. There may be times that you may be holding for longer than a minute.   

Case Priorities:

Normal - How To questions and minor issues

High - An app or service is not functioning

Urgent - Appliance or software is completely non-functional



Supported Products

What do the case statuses mean?

New - The case has been created but an agent has not replied yet

Open - The case is currently being worked

Pending - We are waiting for a reply from the customer

On Hold - We are waiting for a time to troubleshoot or verify if an ongoing issue is resolved

Solved - Issue has been resolved


Why did my case close automatically?

After 5 business days of a case being in a ‘Pending’ status, the ticketing system will automatically close the case in question if there have been no replies/updates to the case.
