  1. support POP3 protocol in Sandstorm

    at the moment there is only SMTP supported in sandstorm protection.
    I suggest to support also the frequently used POP3 protocol !

        • dns.he.net DDNS support.

          One of the best FREE DDNS providers that also supports IPv6.
          There is allready he.net IPv6 tunnel support in UTM. But dns.he.net is still missing from supported providers.

          • Improve User and VPN-Config Management of UTM!

            Everyone who needs to maintain hundrets of users on a UTM pleas read and vote:

            To import hundrets of remote authenticated (LDAP) or local Users to UTM is a pain! The only way is to hire a dozen of students to hack the users into the system. Then you can "bulk-download" users vpnconfig via webadmin. Have anyone tried to mark more then 25 users to download the config or delete the userobjects? On my SG430 no chance. I think many of you knows of the message: "script is running for more then 30 s - it is possible we do…

                • Send notification mail for every smtp quarantaine mail (blocked extension etc)

                  It would be nice to have the ability to activate a report to the internal receiver of an e-mail when his message is blocked (quarantained) because it contains a blocked extension (doc, xls, zip and so on)

                    • Option to redirect to port 80 when SSL certificate is invalid

                      I am finding blocked sites because the server has port 443 open even though SSL is not used. Most often, the site is hosted on akamai, and the server has a default certificate for a248.e.akamai.net. Sometimes this occurs because the user does a Google search and Google's search result uses HTTPS. I suspect that their search database favors HTTPS over HTTP when both are available.

                      When I contact site owners, they are generally not motivated to close port 443, and the Google search database will be slow to update even if they are responsive.

                      It would be helpful to have…

                      • Automatically Blacklist emails by replying and adding [blacklist] to subject line

                        Most users do not have the time to log into the user portal just to blacklist emails. It would be great if the users could reply to an email they want to blacklist and have it automatically added to the blacklist just by modifying the subject, perhaps by adding [blacklist]?. This is already possible with encrypting emails, why can’t we just add blacklisting to the list?

                        i.e. Email comes in from spam@spammersfakedomain.com with a subject line of: i like spam.
                        I reply but change the subject to: [blacklist] and hit send. This gets picked up by the UTM and adds…

                        • WebAdmin: ACL / Role for Time Period Definitions

                          We are a service provider, fully managing a Sophos HA cluster at a customer site. Customer logins to the system should be limited to ONLY change Time Period Definitions, because
                          we created several firewall-rules that are used to allow external third parties (eg. software and hardware support providers) access to internal client systems at the customers network. These are temporarily activated and deactivated using time period definitions.

                          Now it would be very beneficial if there would be an ACL to grant access to our customer to only modify the time period definitions so they can enable access to their external…

                                With the Sophos Email Appliance, there is an option to "Send me a secure copy" when replying to an email. There is no such option with the UTM. This is a required feature for legal so that they can prove that they actually sent correspondence.

                                  • qos setting dynamic limits on uplinks

                                    I would like to allocate set bandwidth for different vlans (deparments) including voice traffic. Is it possible for us to setup a 100Mb link as follows:

                                    VLAN1- 20Mb
                                    VLAN2- 20Mb
                                    VLAN3- 30Mb
                                    VLAN4- 10Mb
                                    VOICE traffic- 10Mb

                                    I would like to have it set like the above but say if one vlan require more bandwidth and it is available on the link it should be able to grow. The limit should not be a maximum limit so to speak.

                                    • Sophos Management Appliance SNMP Monitoring

                                      Hi,

                                      A Platinum customer has requested that we have a SNMP Monitoring feature that we can set/enable within the Sophos Management Appliance (SMA). This does exist on the Web Appliance's but not on the SMA.

                                      They would like this feature so they can be informed of the Health of the device as they recently had an issue where it ran out of resources (backed-up data since 2013).

                                      Regards,

                                      • The ability to view, report and amend pre approved usb devices, and the ability to revoke if lost/ stolen

                                        In the current console you can view usb devices that are read only or blocked.
                                        With the current cyber security risks, it would be good to firstly report on all devices approved, and then manage or revoke if one they are lost or stolen. And two if we find firmware issues and vunrabilities.
