  1. Bridge to Lan AP should continue service without UTM online

    Accesspoints configured to bridge to lan behind a RED should stay up and running, even when the RED has no active UTM tunnel.

      • make FTP Proxy port configurable

        The FTP proxy listens on port 2121 in non-transparent mode.
        At the moment it's not possible to configure this port through webadmin or cc.

        The config file /var/chroot-ftp/etc/frox.conf-default already reads the parameter from
        the middleware but this parameter isn't available in the conf-daemon:

        # Port to listen on. Must be supplied.
        #
        # Port 2121
        [<PORT>]

        It should be configurable through cc oder webadmin.

                • Naming of connections

                  when yo use several connections it's annoying to read only "username@iP-address". No Standard user has an idea what an IP address is or what that entry about. So a "speakting" Name would make more sense, e.g. "My Office", "Company Name VPN", etc.
                  Since it is possible to rename the *.ovpn file to rename the connection in the GUI it awfully requieres Administrator rights!!
                  As first it would be nessesary to place the file into a location where the user can edit it (e.g. own Roaming Profile or C:\ProgramData) or to implement a "Rename Connection" function. The setting could also be…

                  • Would be nice -If there is an option to enforce control in Application Control by specifyng Network Ranges.

                    It would be nice to be able to define a IP Network Range in the Application control. Rules can be configured in the Application Control to allow or block access to users in this IP Network range.

                    • Check for overlapping/never matching rules

                      Please add an option to check the packetfilter ruleset for overlapping rules. It should not be possible to save an inconsistent rulebase

                      Example:
                      Rule 1: Allow any_src any_svc any_dst
                      Rule 2: Drop any_src http 10.10.10.10

                      Rule 2 never matches. UTM should prevent such a rulebase. Either it should not be possible to save this rulebase or it should not be possible to activate rule 2.

                      • Keep Wireless networks active while UTM is down

                        It would be nice to keep the wireless networks active even if the UTM is down (i.e. rebooting, etc). They could run off of their last config until they contact the UTM again to update to latest. You could put a timeout that if the AP doesn't contact a UTM within like an hour (maybe configurable in WebAdmin) than the wireless network goes away. Sometimes while doing UTM maintenance, I like to be able to access other local clients on my network and if the UTM is rebooting or being reloaded I cant.

                        • RED10 Diagnostic Log

                          The ability to either view a log directly on a RED device that is not connecting or insert a USB drive into the RED and the RED will load a diagnostic file onto the USB for viewing.

                          We are frequently frustrated by RED devices that just "don't work" for one reason or another. With no ability to see at which point the device is failing we are just shooting in the dark to find a solution to get the RED connected.

                                • Expose "Corporate Policy Violation" IPS rules via the Attack Pattern groups

                                  Currently, there are many IPS rules in 9.x that do not seem to be exposed via the Attack Patterns page.

                                  Many of them have following in their descriptions:
                                  "Classification.: Potential Corporate Privacy Violation"

                                  These include rules which block SKYPE, BitTorrent, etc.

                                  ISTM that it doesn't make sense to have these hidden away, or even have them at all since we already have the Application Detection system.

                                  links:
                                  http://www.astaro.org/gateway-products/network-protection-firewall-nat-qos-ips/43598-pua-p2p-bittorrent-utp-peer-request-2.html#post215116

                                  Please put these (and other hidden rules) into groups on the Attack Patterns page, and/or remove ones which are redundant with the application traffic classifier.

                                    • Add the option to run a script when connect with the SSL VPN client

                                      It would be very useful to be able to run a script after a successful VPN connection. For example, a script that would check the password expiration date, and report it back to the user.

                                      • VPN on demand in iOS devices: user credentails caching

                                        Currently every time VPN on demand starts on an iOS device, a user is requested to provide password. We can manually modify a VPN profile using iPhone Configuration Utility to provide and store the password permanently so there is no prompt. It would save a lot of time and manual work if UTM could create a VPN profile already containing user's password. Alternatively users could have an option to store their passwords after the first prompt.

                                        • add a function to mark IP packets with DSCP and ToS values. (I.E. SIP RTP)

                                          Mark traffic actively by setting the DSCP or ToS values.

                                          Having this, would mean a great enhancement in SIP telephony, where some providers require DSCP values for proper working to be set.

                                          Thanks a lot Marcus
