  1. version check manual up2date

    There needs to be a process of file/version validation when manually uploading u2d files from ftp.astaro.com. All too often invalid or out-of-sequence updates can be uploaded and staged, which then breaks the update process.

    • IPFIX export template

      Would be a good idea to be able to export template at regular intervals when using IPFIX flow generation.
      This will make ASG compatible with many collector like manageengine netflow ...

      • Two-Factor Authentication (OTP, etc) - limit to specific networks for WebAdmin and other portals.

        Upgrade the existing Two-Factor implementation to have the ability to exclude specific networks/VLANs/VPN connections. If I have a "secure" network connection or I come in through a VPN connection, allow me to define what portals or resources will require OTP re-authentication.

          • url bypass for file extension blocking

            currently url bypass is only working for category or url-filter blocks. This should be available for file extension blocking too!

            • Link SSL Virtual IP pool to a specific profile instead to SSL

              When using SSL Remote access, all profiles use the same IP Pool. If you want to create a profile "network administrators" who has full access to the network and another profile "simple user" who has limited access to network, the "simple users" can access every network the "network administrators" can as long it adds manually the route on its computer.
              It is not possible to filter that with the firewall, because both profiles use the same Virtual IP pool. This is a security issue !

              The solution would be to allow to chose one Virtual IP Pool per profile, so…

              • HTML5 VPN Portal: Support for Windows RDSH Servers which are member of a RDSH Farm using a RDSH Broker

                Sophos UTM 9.201-23 does not allow you to publish a Windows RDSH Server Farm using the HTML5 VPN Portal. The vast majority of our users would only need access to the RDSH Farm and therefore would never need to install a VPN Client if the HTML5 VPN Portal could handle using Remote Desktop Protocol to a Windows Remote Desktop Session Host Farm. The initial login screen loads without issues. However, as soon as the user successfully logs in, the connection redirection to a different member of the farm breaks the connection. The HTML5 VPN Portal is not understanding that the…

                • SSL VPN - Connecting for authentication before logging into user profile

                  like the native Windows VPN (PPTP) connection that allows you to connect through VPN before logging into any profile.
                  This allows us to remotely create profiles on domain computers that are at remote sites.

                  • Improve Handling of Regular Expression Objects for Filter Actions

                    Changing the behaviour of Regular Expression Objects (REO) for Filter Actions (FA) should be considered.

                    To address problems like referencing REO instead of creating new REO when cloning Filter Actions (changes in REO of cloned FA affect original FA) or unable to delete REO (REO remains when FA is deleted, cannot create new REO with the same name after deleting FA).

                    Proposal: store REOs as independent objects (in a database) which can be edited and deleted (outside FAs) and can be assigned as needed to any Filter Action.

                    • allow Enforce Safe Search to override filtering method when HTTPS Decrypt and Scan is not being used..

                      Currently, when the HTTPS traffic scanning is Do not scan or URL Filtering Only, SafeSearch is not enforced. Enforcing SafeSearch is a critical application for some deployments and there should either be a way to selectively add some sites for Decrypt and Scan at the global layer or as an option under Enforce Safe Search. Adding "&safe=active" is not applicable because that cannot be done when the https traffic is not being decrypted.

                      • Reuse Webfiltering white/black lists

                        Currently, when you need to add some exceptions to a profile (not to all users), you have to add them manually using regular expressions and/or adding domains to the exceptions section; but there is no way to create a white/black list and reuse them on one or several profiles.

                        It would be very handy because then you would be able to change its content globally, currently you have to edit the exception lists on each profile manually.

                        Regards,

                        • Guest WLAN (Hotspot) - "DHCP Address Assignment Required" Option

                          If guests change their IP adresses, it is not possible to track them in the logs. After a simple IP change, we have no possibility to connect an IP address to a MAC and then to a Voucher/Guest. So you can bypass the logging. This is an importion feature for guest wlan / hotspot feature!

                          • Link translation with custom dictionary - like TMG has in a web publishing reverse proxy role

                            Today I publish sap portal through TMG. To accomplish that publishing through a reverse proxy, I need to be able to replace sap specific code such as; 80&#x2f with 443&#x2f and http&#x3a with https&#x3a. This makes our webdynpro's work. These text replacing techniques are called custom dictionaries in TMG.

                            Basically TMG goes through the entire page as its delivered to the end user's browser and changes this code on the fly. I use link translation for other situations too so I would love to see this feature added. Thank you.

                              • HTML5 VPN Portal: Language of Browser

                                When you open a web application in HTML 5 VPN Portal, the application selects its language by the language of the browser, which is english.
                                The user has to set his preferred language every time he uses the HTML5 VPN Portal again.

                                We need a workaround to set the language of the browser to german, then the applications would start up with german language.

                                  In order to document the number of users on our network, I would like to have a report on the number of DHCP leases provided on a daily or monthly basis.
                                  The data is listed in the “DHCP Server Log”, but no reporting tool to extract the information from it.

                                  I suggest you include this info in the “Executive Report”

                                  • add a control in the SMTP log tab of the Mail Manager so you can jump directly to a in the log. And make the next/previous arrows bigger!

                                    There is no way to jump to a specific page in the SMTP log. And the arrows for going backward/forward by a page are tiny and almost impossible to click unless you're running at 640x480 resolution.

                                    Would also be nice if we could search on partial IP addresses.

                                    • Daily time limit for Wifi access for children

                                      Voucher with daily time limit for accessing the web via WiFi, so that children can be delivered an access but can't stay connected all day. This way, the administrator can ajust the time limit for surfing the web regarding the age of children or teenagers that use the service. For now, this is already possible but the administrator needs to creat a voucher every day, which is quite painfull. An automatic task could be a good idea for elementary schools, high schools or any place with minor children.

                                      • Require header information to be added

                                        We use a number of cloud based services that require header information to be added (in a similar vain to Google Apps) being able to use these would enable a better user experience and a more secure environment.
