  1. 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.

      • Network Usage report not include the Sophos UTM appliance in the report.

        Currently Sophos UTM 9.2x includes the Sophos UTM appliances IP address in the network usage report, this is and can be somewhat confusing when your usage report includes how much data went through the appliance as well as each individual device.

        What you end up with is the total data reporting 200% of what actually went through.

        ie.

        Sophos UTM Network Usage

        192.168.0.200(Sophos UTM Appliance IP) 1.5GB
        192.168.0.10 0.5GB
        192.168.0.15 0.5GB
        192.168.0.25 0.5GB
        Total Traffic 3.0GB

        So we now have to subtract the Sophos UTM IP from the total everyday to figure out the total usage :(

        This is the…

          • websocket support for WAF

            we are hosting a SignalR hub (http://signalr.net/) behind a Sophos UTM 320. We use the Web Server Protection feature extensively in our environment, and as such have opted to use the same for this.
            SignalR will always try to use Web Sockets (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WebSocket), a new HTML5 API, and fallback to other technologies where this isn't possible to be used.
            Since we've been hosting the hub via the reverse proxy, none of our clients are able to connect via Web Sockets :so having support for websockets in WAF would be super cool

            • Wireless: to be able to turn off hotspot on/off according to time period definition

              It would be nice to be able to turn the hotspot on and off according to a certain period of time since the internet is free for a certain period of hours(unlimited) otherwise it gets pretty expensive. Therefore, in the paid time the internet usage would be limited by using the captive portal.

                • Web filtering - Access Timestamp

                  There is no way to display the time when a user accessed a URL within web filtering reports. Support have confirmed that the only way is via the raw http log.
                  This should be a pre-requisite of any web filtering report, as organizations need this for auditing and compliance checks.
                  Many thanks

                  • FTP-Proxy virus scanning robustness

                    At the moment, if virus scanning enabled on UTM (320) for files smaller than 50MB you can run in a problem, if the file a packed zip file with a high compress rate and a complex directory and file structure(e.g 220MB more then 1600 files). The transfer can not completed and the ftp log show you:
                    2014:01:09-18:42:13 XXXXX-1 frox[23903]: Got no response from cssd
                    2014:01:09-18:42:16 XXXXX-1 frox[23903]: Virus scanner failed

                    My suggestion is, that the admin has the option to allow transfer complex zip files without an virus scan like a file that excite the maximum scanning size. it is…

                    • add an option in the self service portal for email to allow users to delete spam and permanently block the sender

                      The current process involves users having to copy the senders address and adding it to their own blocked senders list. Why not just have a button to delete the message and block the sender instead - less effort for the user.

                        • NVGRE Gateway for Microsoft Network Virtualization

                          Software Defined Networking (SDN) is the future and Microsoft has laid out their recommended topology for utilizing Network Virtualization with Hyper-V/SCVMM/Azure. The only way for a user that is relying on Astaro for their current networking/routing to setup a NVGRE Gateway (Network Virtualization General Routing Encapsulation Gateway) is to take 2x dedicated physical Hyper-V hosts and install Microsoft's Windows Server Gateway (WSG) into 2x child clustered VMs running across of the Hyper-V hosts. It would be ideal if Sophos UTM users could skip the WSG and use the Sophos UTM as the NVGRE. A proper solution would fully integrate with…

                              • Add search capability to blocked emails.

                                I sometimes have 500 or more emails in my blocked email list. It would be great if we could search through the email to find messages to unblock. An example would be if an email had an invoice number in the content or a product name such as Autocad. We could search on a word or number to find any blocked emails that we want to unblock.

                                    • Drain stop real servers in WAF

                                      When one would remove / disable a real server in WAF, all connections are immediately killed. It would be nice if there is an option to drain a real server. So WAF would stop sending new connection to that real server, but established connection would continue until they're terminated by client/server.

                                        • Provide Mobile email users ability to submit spam messages. The iOS is unable to forward email as attachment - is there another option?

                                          iOS users are unable to forward email messages as attachments to the is-spam address for submission. How about if the mail log had a set of options for messages to be submitted as spam or retrieved for delivery to the inbox when improperly removed as spam?
