  1. No beef-dead-beef test packets on RED LAN Ports

    beef-dead-beef Packets are sent to test if the WAN tunnel has built up correctly. So in my opinion it is just necessary to broadcast them on the WAN port of a RED. We had an issue with these packets on the LAN ports on a RED which we have fixed through an workaround (we blocked beef-dead-beef on a switch).

      • For the Sophos UTM, Endpoint Protection

        Under Endpoint Protection > Antivirus > Exceptions

        When selecting the exception type for "Adware and PUA"
        It asks for the "File Name:"

        Can this be changed just to say "Adware/PUA Name" or "Detection Name" ?

        As this can be misleading and appear to create exceptions based on the file name itself, rather than the detection name our labs use.
        Eg; adding PsExec will only exclude files that can be called anything at all, but are detected as the PsExec PUA - so other files called PsExec aren't effected. If the customer renames any PUA files and tries to exclude them…

          • Proxy profile firewall rules

            We need to be able to use firewall rules to prevent access between networks, however the rules do not apply to HTTP traffic when using transparent proxy.

            Can you add on the functionality to either:
            A )Have a http proxy profiles as a definition which can be used within a firewall rules / routing e.t.c.

            B) Be able to add firewall rules against a proxy profile.

            Thank-you

            • Would like to exclude forwarded emails with .icap (In-Copy files) attachments

              We have a rule that redirects all archive emails to our Helpdesk for analysis, but it redirects emails with an attachment of .icap (In-Copy files) and we would like to exclude this type of email from being redirected.

              • LAN link Monitoring similar to Uplink Monitoring

                I want the UTM to monitor a Lan link and take action if It detect a failure in this link , similar to the ones already exists for Uplinks.
                In other word , to separate the Monitoring function from the uplinks , so I can choose which links I need to monitor, perhaps uplinks, may be LAN links in sometimes, then take appropriate actions according to.

                • Provide the Two-Factor-Authetication as a radius service, too

                  Hi, great that you know implemented a 2FA with OTPs. With that it is now possible to secure applications dealing with the Firewall or, in combination with reverse Proxys, even to secure web-based third-party applications. But what about non-browser based 3rd Party Tools? Wouldn't it be great to provide the 2FA also as a radius Service for those other programs? For us it would be. We are running e.g. a Password Server app that has a webinterface AND other user guis like Mobile apps. With a reverse Proxy, we could try to secure this Service from outsides threads via 2FA…

                  • TLS (SSL) Encrypting remote syslog

                    Hi please implement TLS (SSL) Encrypting for remote syslog.
                    It is an important feature to send encrypted syslog messages to the remote syslog server: http://www.rsyslog.com/doc/rsyslog_tls.html
                    A Cisco ASA, Synology NAS and Linux supports this feature. Please implement this also into your great UTM Firewall !!

                    • Additional variable for use with the voucher PDF template

                      You really improved the customization of the Hotspot vouchers! Great Job! But I was missing a variable. We use the captive portal providing our guests easy internet access. So when creating a voucher in the user portal, we decided to put the guests Company and Name in the "comment" field. It would be very helpful if you could provide this field as a variable in the voucher template as well, so the vouchers are more personalized!

                      Thanks for that!
                      Best from Germany,
                      Markus Kreissl

                      • Leave out the "unit name" like "hours", "days" etc. from the voucher variables

                        Hi, once again: great Job with improving the customization of the PDF vouchers in the hotspot section. But I wonder why you included the "unit names" with the variables, e.g. Valid for "1 day" or like we have it with german language Settings "1 Tag". This makes it difficult to create a multilingual voucher Definition. The fact we run the user portal in german does not mean, we do not have voucher users from abroad, but they will always get the german "unit names" for "hour, day" etc. I would appreciate the "unit names" being left out from the variables,…

                            • SMNTP

                              Hi-- I'm using Zabbix to monitor my environment-- including Sophos UTM where possible.

                              One thing I don't seem to see is a way to monitor the status of ipsec site-to-site vpns using snmp traps. I can get either a [WARN-726] (a site is down) or a [INFO-726] (a site came up)... but I don't seem to get info on WHICH tunnel.

                              Since I currently have 35 site-to-site vpns running through this thing "the vpn is down" isn't a very helpful alert.

                              By contrast, if I have email alerts for the same event turned on, I get something like:

                                • Use Auth Agent for Endpoint Web Protection

                                  Use Auth Agent to verify user instead of just AD. If you are away from home, in a coffee shop or something have the agent cache the login like Windows does for active directory accounts when they are not on the network. Then just allow the endpoint to verify against the agent even if its using a cache login from the last time the computer is on the network.

                                    • Firewall Order of Operations

                                      Firewall Order of Operations

                                      Based on testing and additional information found in other request, it appears that the proxies/security services have a higher order of operation over the firewall. As such, even with firewall rules in place, the security services override those settings. With email protection, this essentially opens up SMTP on the Sophos UTM to anyone on ALL interfaces. This, thus, increases the surface attack area of the device to an unacceptable level.

                                      Changing the order of operation would allow the administrator of the device to dictate, via firewall rules, what can and can not access the Sophos UTM…

                                      • Web Filter Exception Transparent Bypass

                                        Web Filter Exception Transparent Bypass

                                        The web filter should allow you to configure transparent bypass exceptions in the exception section that allow you to transparently bypass traffic by matching source and/or destination network, host, url, regex, etc (similar to how it works for network protection settings). This way, for example, you can perform a transparent bypass for a specific host/network accessing specific streaming content at a specific URL without having to bypass the entire host entirely. The "Misc" section (in 9.2) can still be used for global transparent bypasses.

                                        • Adding mlvpn support

                                          The idea is to give a better bandwith to utm user who have 2 operator and a litte machine in a Datacenter.
                                          At this time I was able to create my mlvpn tunnel on the sophos utm9.2, who work in tun mode and not in tap mode. But it wasn't seen by the UTM interface...
