    • Guest WLAN (Hotspot) - "DHCP Address Assignment Required" Option

      If guests change their IP adresses, it is not possible to track them in the logs. After a simple IP change, we have no possibility to connect an IP address to a MAC and then to a Voucher/Guest. So you can bypass the logging. This is an importion feature for guest wlan / hotspot feature!

      • When manually defining Soft Token, provide a RANDOM Secret button.

        When using the One Time Password (OTP) facility to manually build Soft Tokens for users; it would be nice if the UTM could provide a 'Generate Random Secret' button; as currently you have to manuall source/define a 128 bit hex secret key. Using a Random string generator that confirms to the UTM requirements of manually defined OTP secrets would make things easier.

                • Web Application Firewall OTP support for form to form authentication

                  Support for form to form authentication with one time passwords in the WAF.

                  The WAF should be able to pass authentication through to a website which authenticates using a form (as opposed to only basic auth) if there is configuration on the UTM that defines the URL to the page which can process the login (not the login form) and the field names for the username and password.

                  • Web filtering - Access Timestamp

                    There is no way to display the time when a user accessed a URL within web filtering reports. Support have confirmed that the only way is via the raw http log.
                    This should be a pre-requisite of any web filtering report, as organizations need this for auditing and compliance checks.
                    Many thanks

                    • Enhance Block Override feature capabilities

                      Currently, the block override doesn't allow override of file extension blocks, as well as others, but it would be useful to optionally allow more granular control over where it does and does not work. For example:

                      >> Allow file extension or MIME type blocking
                      >> Allow files larger than the maximum download size
                      >> Prohibit some content categories from being overridden. For example, "Job Search" is blocked but can be overriden, but Nudity is blocked and cannot be overridden.

                      --- Original Request ---
                      There should be a button, when extension blocking blocked a file, that admins can click on and…

                      • Fix DynDNS with multiple Domain Names

                        I don't know if this is a problem with other DynDNS providers, but it is a problem with Namecheap. If you were to configure abc.mydomain.com, and then try to configure abc.anotherdomain.com, you will get the error:
                        The DynDNS mapping object with the name 'abc' already exists. This effectively prevents using more than one domain name with DynDNS.

                          • Show eth link speed/duplex in gui

                            the link speed/duplex is not curently shown in any of the webadmin tabs, only a general "UP/DOWN" status.
                            Curently the HW tab in interfaces only shows the capabilities of each NIC, and the support/advanced/interfaces tables doesn't show it either.

                            the only way to get this important info is to SSH and run ifconfig/ethtool commands, quite cumbersome for an important bit of info (in fact can help troubleshoot cable problems/wrong switch ports/wrong modem configs, etc)

                              At present translate.google.com is categorised as Proxies and Translators and is blocked under the default group policy.
                              We would like our users be able to use google translate to translate pages and text that are in other languages but without being able to use it to circumvent policy rules and get to blocked sites.

                              • Add "lefthostaccess=yes" in StrongSWAN configs.

                                "conn" entries in ipsec.conf should include (or have the option to include) "lefthostaccess=yes" to allow the UTM host itself to use the tunnel. This allows the web proxy to operate when local clients access web servers at the remote site. It also allows DNS Request Routing to function through the tunnel.

                                      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:

                                      VPN connection…

                                      • Wake On Lan for SSL VPN connection

                                        In need of Wake On Lan through SSL VPN connection. We have tried several ways but the only one that works is to push the command _/usr/sbin/ether-wake -i eth0 88:51:fb:x:x:x_ from the cli. Our customer has very basic knowledge an we need a more simple and automatic _if possible_ way to use WOL from SSL VPN.

                                        • Direct IP support for Netgear AirCard 320U and other LTE modems

                                          Hi all

                                          Direct IP is the new method used by many LTE modems as PPP, with its overheads, can only support 25mbps downstream, whereas Direct IP does not.

                                          I have tried using my Netgear AirCard 320U with my home-licensed UTM without success, and it took a great deal of troubleshooting to find out why.

                                          It seems that /dev/ttyUSB2 (which UTM picks as the port to use) is no longer used for PPP control. That has been relegated to /dev/ttyUSB3 for backward compatibility. Instead, the configuration is done using Direct IP, which uses DHCP instead of IPCP for IP addressing.

                                          My…
