  1. RED device with integrated wifi

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

    • 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

      • 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.

        • 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:

            • 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.

              • 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…

                • (Webserver Protection) WAF + (Network Protection) Server Load Balancing.

                  It would be great if there was a way to use the WAF but with Server Load Balancer setup in the Network Protection area or at least have the same type of control if not even more types of load balancing controls then there are now.

                  As noted in another feature suggestion of having Layer 7 checks in the WAF Load balancer would be great. And I agree. But along those same lines I also have needs to specify load to not be round robin and to weight it. Which you can do to a degree in the Network Protection…

                    • Enable the admin to remove unused Website Tags in Web Filtering

                      If one defines a website tag in the UTM for a collection of URLs, then later desires to fully delete the tag (the tags remain in the configuration db even if not assigned to any URLs), there is currently not a way to do this. I contacted support and they said this would be a feature request (seems like missing basic functionality to me).

                        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.

                          Windows Software does not work because it doesn't recognise the mac hardware and Filefault does not work as it does not support the Windows partition.

                          there are loads of people with this issue, with the ease of installing windows on a mac thus having the best of both worlds, Mac hardware being better built and generally more reliable and more powerful compared to pc laptops in…

                              Country blocking prevents Endpoint Protect from communicating with Sophos Liveconnect and cause the EP feature to stop working. CB should either not do that; or exceptions should be pre-populated to prevent that from happening.

                                • breaking HA cluster without a shutdown the s lave.

                                  if the s lave shutsdown after breaking up the cluster, I can't reach it anymore because the unit is in a datacenter. Even console access is'nt possible.
                                  So do a factory reset of the s lave after breaking down the cluster and then a reboot. With console access I can configure the routing and ip's again.

                                  • HotSpot: Export "First Connection Date" CSV

                                    Hi,

                                    today a customer asked me if the first Connection Date could be also made exportable in the HotSpot Section. I think it should be easily done isn't it?

                                    • HTML5 RDP automatic login with domain active directory credentials

                                      When you setup HTML5 RDP automatic login, it should pass the active directory credentials including domain to the RDP server for login.

                                      This is a current feature of the sonicwall SSL-VPN and needs to be addressed for the sophos UTM.

                                      • Make RBL list update possible via Pattern update or check their availability

                                        Recently the Web Server Security reverse proxy experienced timeout problems because "block clients with bad reputation" was active and one of the three internally user DNS RBL lists is down (dnsbl.proxybl.org).

                                        As the DNS RBL list stuff is not very reliable and often these lists are down due to DOS attacks or lack of administrators, it would make sense to react to such changes very quickly.

                                        So I suggest making updates of RBL lists using the pattern update mechanism (applies to both SMTP and reverse proxy and maybe Web Security as well).

                                        Another approach would be to chek the availability…

                                        • URL Redirection

                                          It would be great if it would be possible to redirect certain URLs

                                          For example:

                                          www.company.com => www.company.ch/site1
                                          www.company.com/site1 => www.company.com/newsite

                                          Thank you :)
