  1. HA/Clustering : Be able to define IP address when several cluster used the same VLAN

    HA / Cluster systems use by design the same ip range. On a same VLAN synchronization we can't install more than one HA/Cluster.
    We have 4 HA/Clusters we would like to install on the same VLAN. It would be nice to have the ability to define the IP Address Range when we configure HA/Cluster, rather then automatically have an IP range assign to the Cluster.

    • Regulary Quarantine Reports

      We want to customize the Quarantine Reports more often than it is possible today (twice a day). For example once an hour or every time a maul is blocked. So we could better handle a faster notification and delivery of mail attachments, that we want to block because of cryto trojan spamming.

      • Add support for acting as a secondary/***** DNS nameserver

        Currently, the UTM can either act as an authoritative DNS server or as a (selective) forwarder.

        What's missing is the support for acting as a secondary/***** DNS nameserver that can do zonetransfers from existing DNS nameservers, e.g. internal Active Directory DNS nameservers.

        Imagine you have a small internal network with 1 Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V Host and 2 Active Directory domain controllers running on top.
        When you reboot the HVH for maintenance reason (e.g. updates), both internal DCs are unreachable and a UTM cannot do internal name resolution anymore, as its forwarding target nameservers for the internal domain(s) are…

          • Managing black list of local Sophos Email Security via Microsoft Outlook Add-In

            Sophos Email Protection: Sophos already offers an MS Outlook add-in which allows the users to mark emails as junk mails. When users marks an emails as junk, an email is sent to Sophos Labs, gets analyzed and sometimes the sender is added to a global black list.

            We would like to have another option when using this add-in. Whenever one of our users marks an email as junk, we want the sender added to the black list of our locally installed Sophos Email Security, not sent to Sophos Labs.
            Other solutions like SonicWall Email Security offer this functionality already.

            Right…

              • remotely reboot a red device

                It would be handy if you could use the UTM console to reboot a remote ethernet device (RED). Right now always someone on the other side is needed in case a RED needs a power cycle.

                        - You are using Sophos UTM with Web Protection

                        - You did not enable HTTPS filtering too complicate...

                        - You block the X sites, but Google Images displayed pictures are not permitted ...

                        This is due to the fact that Google searches are done in HTTPS and if the HTTPS filtering is not active then the UTM UTM can not scan the contents of Google search ...

                        However, there is a virtual IP provided by Google SafeSearch forcing queries. The searchs are then blocked by Google.

                          • prompt for credentials when using NLA with HTML5 VPN Portal

                            Instead of having to enter static credentials in the Admin Portal for RDP connections with NLA, the user should be prompted for their credentials when using the connection. Having static credentials doesn't make sense when only admins can enter them (meaning the admin has to know everyone's credentials) and passwords are changed on a regular basis (meaning the admin has to update the password on every connection every x days).

                            • Firewall Rules Packet Simulator

                              A UTM Wizard or Tool that would run a Simulation of a defined Packet through the configured Firewall Rules.
                              The Wizard would require the following:
                              1) SourceIP
                              2) SourcePort
                              3) DestinationIP
                              4) DestinationPort
                              5) Protocol (ie. tcp or udp)
                              6) Interface that the packet reaches the UTM (Outside, Inside, DMZ)
                              The simulator will then test this packet against all the configured firewall rules, and report a final "Allowed" or "Denied", giving the reason for the Deny.

                                Currently the only firewall solutions on Azure are Barracuda and Fortinet...Why Sophos is not present on Azure? Are there some technical issues preventing this?

                                  • Cache Intermediate HTTPS issuer certificates

                                    When browsing to poorly configured web sites that don't provide a complete certificate chain, the UTM certficate validation will block the site as untrusted.

                                    Browsers can work around these poorly-configured servers by caching intermediate issuer certificates from well-behaved servers.

                                    Let site A and site B have certificates issued by intermediate issuer Z. Site A provides the full chain, site B is badly configured and does not.

                                    If a user browses to site B first, the browser will issue a security warning because it can't find the issuer certificate to validate the certificate chain.

                                    If a user browses to site A,…

                                    • 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…
