  1. 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.

          • Failover Tunnel RED between two UTMs

            Two UTMs connected by Tunnel RED, there is no failover function working well, because when two tunnels are connected between the UTMs, when the first one is down, the second takes the connections like expected, but when the first tunnel back, the tunnel is still with the second link and it is not backing to the first tunnel.

            I ask to vote in this function that is extremely important on cases with two link for failovers.

            • POP3 proxy: Check ZIP / Archive files for blocked extensions

              This option is available for smtp, but not for pop3. There are many companies using pop3. It will be a good option to protect against malware.

              • quick block or allow

                Quick one click block or allow a site eg. (domain.com) for all users. this would be useful for a typical helpdesk technician to block or allow a site after identifying a site that is fit or unfit for viewing. This is particully useful in an education establishment where quick action is required

                  We would like to have the opportunity to delete a specified attachment out of the mail and not store in quarantine. This would be helpful for fake billings with ZIP-File attached

                  • add customisable error messages

                    Add custom error messages for when problems occur (also providing a useful error message/reason).

                    We had some clients getting 403 Forbidden when connecting to our website, and it looks very unprofessional.

                    A company branded page telling the user they have been blocked due to their IP having a bad reputation. (as per our last problem) would be great

                    • Mails that are Blocked by SPF should be able to move to quarantine instead of blocking and should apear in the quarantine report.

                      At the Moment Mails where blocked by SPF will be just blocked, but there are thousends of misconfigured mailservers out there, where just have a wrong spf configuration. it would be nice, if we could activate a function wicht not blocks a mail while spf check failure but put it in to the quarantine, so that the user have it in his quarantine report and release it or whitelist the Sender. It would niceley help a lot and would make a lot more Customers happy

                      • Sophos VPN app for mobile platforms

                        Sophos should develop an own VPN app for mobile operating systems (iOS / Android / Windows Phone) which can connect via the UTM using the configuration pushed from the UTM to the SMC server.
                        It should also support the Per-App-VPN feature which was introduced in iOS 7.

                        • Notify the external sender when SOPHOS UTM blocks an E-Mail

                          A customer want to have the the following Feature.

                          An incoming E-Mail gets blocked by UTM because of an listed File extension.

                          Now the UTM sends a Mail to the external sender that it has blocked the Mail be cause of an listed extesion. Maybe with a free text field for individual spellings.

                          • - Email Filtering rate limiting.

                            It would be great to have a rate limit added to email filtering. Barracuda Spam filter did this great. I got hit with over 2 million spam messages from a user account that got compromised due to a **** password. Rate limiting would have solved this.

                            • add a whitelist option to the user portal.

                              It would be great to have a user portal section where users could be given the ability to manage exception list for their users as a global option. This way site managers could add sites to the exception list that everyone can access without having to involve their IT support or allow them to modify the UTM

                              • Better reporting on webfilter (Reasonon for block)

                                First I see a similar suggestion is already posted and marked completed pointing to policy violators. But it does not really help much.

                                Problem: Go to "Web protection reports" Choos the "Categories" reports.
                                There it shows multiple categories that are not supposed to be blocked.
                                Drilling down to a category that is not to be blocked, example for us "Travel" . Here pick the Reporting Direction "Urls", "Select this view" find one that says "Blocked" on this category. For us we se many legit sites here from time to time. Where action is blocked and Reason is "--". So no…

                                  • Auto-update DHCP settings if associated IP range is changed

                                    Currently if DHCP is enabled and I change the LAN address range, DHCP is disabled. I have to manually assign a static IP on my laptop, log back in, reconfigure DHCP, then re-enable it, then re-configure my laptop to use DHCP. It would be nice if DHCP would automatically update itself to the new range if the associated interface address range changes.

                                      • iphone and andriod UTM management app

                                        It would be nice to be able to monitor and receive certain alerts from UTM from a phone, without having to navigate to the web interface.

                                        The app could have

                                        * NIC status 24 hours
                                        * IPS alerts
                                        * CPU load - space - ram - etc
                                        * current in out speeds
                                        * remote users
                                        * and many more

                                        The app could be just view only for security reasons and also utilized one time auth for installation.

                                        • Add ASIA/RANGOON Time Zone under Management/SysSettings/Time&Date

                                          Hi, we are currently implementing a couple of UTM in our new offices in Myanmar. Unfortunately the Time Zone ASIA/YANGON (RANGOON) which is GMT +6.5 is missing, so all UTM are running with the wrong time when synced with an NTP! The closest time zone is Bangkok which is GMT +7 Could you please add the time zone to Management! Thx!
