remotely reboot a red device

It would be handy if you could use the UTM console to reboot a remote ethernet device (RED). Right now always someone on the other side is needed in case a RED needs a power cycle.

    I think "Martin Damgaard" posted the solution. Our RED rebooting, when they don't have a connection to our UTM. So this works when you just disable the RED connection on your UTM for one minute.

    If the problem is that the RED isn't communicating with the central Sophos box, then changing the settings on the Sophos box will have no affect.

    I've seen it before were I can ping the RED but it for some reason no longer tries to update from the main router. In cases like this, some way of remotely accessing the RED directly to force a reboot would be helpful!

    Can you not allready do this, by just briefly disable the tunnel on the UTM, and then enable it again?
    I believe this would trigger a reboot of the RED at the other end..?
