  1. Provide Admins a way to Disable 802.11b

    I've had several customers ask for the ability to disable 802.11b, etc. for wireless networks they have deployed. This is to increase performance (less radio "noise", etc.

    • OCSP Stapling Support for WAF

      Please can you Support OCSP Stapling.

      The obvious advantage to OCSP Stapling is the improvement in
      speed and availability of the OCSP certificate status check.

      OCSP Stapling helps maintain the privacy of the end user, since a CA can see which web sites a user has visited (only those web sites that have certificates issued by the CA). If OCSP Stapling is used, the CA will see OCSP requests
      only from the web site, not the web site’s end users.

      Many wi-fi hotspots use Captive Portals to control access to the
      Internet, sometimes requiring entry of a credit card number…

      • Improvement on hotspot vouchers: device numbers and better cutting lines

        Hello,
        at the moment vuouchers does not show the number of devices that are allowed to connect using the passcode. I think It would be useful to add this information. We set 2 devices for each code, but users does not know this info and they often take 2 vouchers, 1 for laptop 1 for smartphone.

        Also the format of cutting lines should be improved. They should be smaller and positioned at the borders of page, not in the middle. We have some difficulties cutting them correctly and all of the same size.

        • PDF

          The Web protection report was exported to PDF.
          When copy and paste the contents of the PDF to text file, garbled occurs.

          It is hoped to be changed so as not to generate the garble.

          • WAN links multipath on RED

            Recently I come across a situation where on WAN 1, it is connected to a ADSL connection with a very slow upload speed, on WAN2, it's connected to a 4G network. It would be great if there is a feature like multipath so that all the upload traffics go through WAN 2 on a faster upload speed.

            • Additional supported 4G devices for 3G/UTMS failover RED50

              With the wide use of 4G network around the world, I would like to see the REDs have better supported 4G devices for failover rather than just only 1 at the moment which is not very common and hard to find.

              • multiple SUM instances

                The current central management interface in a UTM allows for two SUM servers. However this is really for a primary and secondary scenario.

                We have customers that have their own instance of SUM, it would be nice if they could add the UTM in our datacenter to their own SUM, if we could somehow limit their access to areas of the config we deem manageable by the customer.

                • Route All traffic from Endpoint to UTM Proxy (like TMG agent)

                  At this moment (UTM 9.2), Sophos Authentication Agent have only one function - map IP and User.

                  But TMG customers like to use a TMG agent, which can route all outbound traffic from host (not only http/s) to TMG proxy.

                  If we will have such functionality, this will allow us:
                  - have all traffic on UTM from host (even UTM not as Default GW).
                  - use this agent for Terminal servers (separate different users by ranges of ports).

                    • Ability to choose syslog severity

                      I cannot believe this is not possible it is a standard feature of most networking/security products.

                      The ability to define what level of severity you want output to your syslog server. Currently its either ALL or NOTHING. When running log correlation you do not want the syslog server filled up with noise.

                      RFC 5424 defines the ability to set severity levels, can this be implemented ASAP along with any other logging improvements.

                      Thank you

                        • add static route with jog/dial

                          it would be great to have the possibility to add a static route with the jog/dial button. Often our equitment is directly sent to the datacenter and then conneted to the network. The datacenter technician can change the management ip with the jog/dial, but can not add a static route, so it is not possible make a connection over the network.

                                Make a "generate private key" in the interface. Then show the public DNS entry. Make a check per outgoing mail domain, if public key is correct published in DNS. More people will use this "hidden" anti-spam setting, and less spam will be transmitted.

                                • Endpoint groups

                                  Be able to specify which group you want to deploy a client to.

                                  Currently there is no option to install with GPO or script and specify a group in the command. This result in all deployments going to the default group.

                                  Very time consuming if you had many groups with different policies.

                                    The ability to add custom pages to the user portal for other business needs.
                                    Such as iframe or the ability to use HTML code.

                                    We could then provide a single interface for users to access every service we offer them on the network.
                                    For example and HTML form with the ability to send an email to administrators with websites they want unblocking.
                                    Or a simple link to another website.
