Do you have an idea for Sophos UTM? Do you recognize a good idea when you see one? We want to hear from you!

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Server Load Balancing: Choose HTTP Response codes for failed servers other than 5xx (for ex. 404!)

    By now only 5xx HTTP Response codes tell the SLB to disable a real servers (a failed one) and 200 for OK. We want to be able to determine our own HTTP Response Code to disable real servers like 404. This makes it way easier for an admin since he only has to check for a simple empty file - if its there -> 200 (up), if not -> 404 (down). We use this also with HAProxy and it works great.

      • Web Protection: Youtube and blocking specific categories

        Coming from another vendor one of the features I like/had was that I could block categories within YouTube. We are a School District that needs to access YouTube (YouTube for Education has limited content). It would be nice to setup a policy or rule to be able to block these YouTube Categories.

        Currently available categories are:

        • Second DHCP Server in DHCP relay

          It would be great if you could enter two DHCP server in the DHCP relay. We have two Windows 2012 R2 server with an active/standby Cluster. If the active node Fails, the secondary will take function. But we have to take care, to change the server in the relay on the UTM to let it still work.

                • Authentication: Possibility to authenticate ADS users based on their Domain membership

                  It must be possible for the ADS user to logon the Userpotal due to their domain membership.

                  Example 1: Sales \ John Smith
                  Example 2: Marketing \ John Smith

                  How can the user be distinguished if they have different access rights ? Until now, the system can not distinguish that.
                  Users have until now always the same access though different access rights are defined for both users

                      • Allow SG115 bridged to LAN network

                        Currently it's not possible to use the integrated AP on the SG 115 for a bridged to LAN SSID. Most customers have purchased this unit to use it in this way rather than as a separate zone AP. Could the UTM be updated so we can use it as bridged and separate zone.

                          Why not integrate wifi into the RED? Just adds to its simplicity.

                          • IKEv2 support

                            We would like to see IKEv2 support so that we can connect to Azure.

                            Otherwise this will be a deal breaker and we will be forced to use other appliances very soon.

                            • Improve reporting for Advanced Threat Protection

                              Presently ATP reports the IP of the advanced threat. It does not report the DNS name.

                              In most larger networks, all DNS requests go through an internal DNS server, Domain Controller or whatever. Therefore any alert from the ATP will identify the DNS server as the requesting host.

                              For Windows DNS logging the brief logging does not capture the IP address returned from the resolver, only the DNS name submitted. Whilst it is possible to turn on complete logging which will return this information such logging is very, very verbose, and it is generally impractical to have permanently turned on.

                              • Upgrade SSL VPN SPEED from 10 to customized or up to 100

                                My advice upgrade SSL VPN speed from 10 up to 100 or customized speed connection.
                                Usual provider giving you 25 Mbps down and you have in office 100 Mbps fiber and you would like to work with 25MBPS exactly what provider give you at home, and you cant because you're limited for 10MBPS via SSLVPN , then instead of SSL VPN you should open PPTP or L2TP from Sophos and then you get all results of 25

                                  On the webadmin interface under Definitions&Users --> Users&Groups i can download the vpn config for the users. I ned this feature as an automated process, who drops the vpn configurations e.g. once per day on an ftp server or an smb share. This is very important for bigger Companys who must to deploy the ssl vpn client automaticli via Deployment Solution or GPOs to the Users.

                                  • Return original website category for Anonymizer

                                    Many customers have a legitimate use for Google Translate which is classified as an anonymizer when a website is passed through here. Could we return the original category of the website (also included in the URL) rather than the category for Google Translate? This would allow better control of the traffic and remove the only current option of completely allowing all websites through Google Translate or blocking all websites through Google Translate.

                                    Example URL: http://translate.google.co.uk/translate?hl=en&sl=fr&u=http://www.hug-ge.ch

                                    • Fix UTM Licensing To Expire IPv6 Temporary Addresses Faster

                                      Fix UTM licensing to "age out" faster the many IPv6 "temporary addresses" that are created by most devices (running Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, Android, Linux). As an example, I have 12 devices connected to my network, but because I run in an IPv4/IPv6 environment, UTM is currently counting 113 IP addresses and sending me daily warnings that I have exceeded my license count and no new devices can be added to the network.

                                      In the forum post linked below I have gone into greater detail, but the issue essentially is that in 2014 almost every IPv6-capable device is generating…

                                      • SUM as add-on for Synology NAS.

                                        I would like to run Sophos UTM Manager (SUM) as a Plug-In on Synology NAS in order to get a simple and flexible solution and at the same time reduce additional hardware.

                                        • Add Action to Availability Group when Group set to unresolved

                                          Description:
                                          - Two sites connected to Internet
                                          - Site-to-Site (S2S) IPsec tunnel established
                                          - Private Point-to-Point (P2P) Link (NOT uplink) with better bandwidth introduced on a separate interface
                                          - Static route defined to use Private Point-to-Point Link to connect to remote site

                                          Problem:
                                          Need to shutdown Site-to-Site VPN to force traffic to use static route over Private Point-to-Point Link (not uplink)

                                          Required:
                                          Use P2P line as a preferred route between sites when P2P line is active
                                          Use VPN S2S when P2P down
                                          Automatic failover from P2P to VPN and back to P2P when line is active

                                          Available solution:
