  1. MAC Address Definitions: Description fields in lists

    Create a field that describes each entry that is within MAC address definition list.

    In our case we've created a white-list for wireless devices and it currently appears as a large list of indistinguishable devices.

    A simple field tied to these addresses would improve management. Having the logs reference this field would also be a benefit as we currently have difficulties identifying the devices that are within our list when there is an issue.

    • Create bootable USB version of UTM software installer and a method of maintaining the current level

      Currently we download the latest ISO of the UTM installer software and create CD's to boot from and install. Creating USB bootable media would be quicker, more efficient and more environmentally friendly

      • Remove support for TLS 1.0/Allow it to be disabled.

        PCI scans that see a remote access port open to the internet fail because the appliance still supports TLS 1.0. I have to dispute this every time, and it is a real hassle.

        • Add Information in voucher

          Hello

          I wanted to know if it's possible to add information on voucher to identify the user connected with it.

          In fact. Feature to add two fields or three (first name, last name, identity card number,...) and make these fields obligatory for the admin of the hotspot when generating voucher.

          The most important functionality in hotspot must be identification and recognition of user. Because in case of illegal surf. We have to get log information about the guest.
          With the actual hotspot, we can't know the user connected with the voucher.
          Add information will be helpful in these situation

          Best…

              • Accept own domain only from internal interfaces

                There is a leak in the mail protection.
                Whan a spammer connects to the UTM and uses our own domain as the sender, the UTM will not block the e-mail.

                It would be nice to accept e-mails from our own domain only through internal interfaces and not the WAN interface.

                • dublicated object detection

                  often when two admins work on the same utm they create rules with identical hosts but don't know the object name the other one gave, so they create their own object definition which points to an identical host.
                  Please include a warning when trying to create an existing definition and provide an option to find dublicated definitions and to combine them into one object.

                  • RED PCI Compliance Changes

                    PCI Compliance will always fail on current UTMs using RED. This is due to being unable to disable SSL v3 on this as well as being unable to change the certificates used (currently weak, not using at least 2048 bit keys). Please fix!

                      Policy Rules with the same same destination, ports, gateway through but with the source address different, could be easily cloned with based from other one.

                      • Rename objects

                        Copernicus project

                        Add support to rename Policy rules name, IPSEC and SSL VPN tunnels name, Webfilter Policy and Category objects, Application Policy and Category objects, QOS rules and all other items.
                        This will Improve the management, it must be default to all objects. Currently to fix a simple typo error, we must to create a new policy or category and populate all items again. A simple task can turn into a hard task.

                        • RED bridge to lan

                          RED device does not currently bridge the existing 'internal' interface on the UTM. when you set it up you have to create a seperate ip from the 'internal' dhcp. therefore it does not show up on the same LAN. it is on a seperate LAN.

                          bridge to lan feature like the AP devices would be a great addition. this way everything is on the same network and can view networked drives or computers or shares.

                          i have made a workaround to fix it for now until there is an update. it is as follows.

                          ***make backup prior***

                          • Logging for hotspot vouchers

                            Tie the ip address where the voucher is used to the voucher code so that we can see where individual codes have been on the internet.

                            A voucher network like the user network where it contains all the ip's where they have been used would be good. We can assign a single voucher to a single device for staff BYOD devices, but in some cases we can have one voucher for 300 devices (Guests BYOD). But we need to see where voucher code blah blah blah has gone on the internet.

                            Many thanks

                              • Connection Tracking Helper SFTP

                                A customer want to use a sftp Connection from extern to his Company. For this he install an QNAP NAS and activate SFTP over Port 2112 (SFTP Port 22 is not avaible).

                                The Problem is that when we want to connect extern the NAT and Firewall Rules is working, but SFTP Need more then the one port.

                                For FTP the solution and Routing works. But SFTP didnt work, For FTP you can use the Connection track helper, but SFTP can not use with that.

                                So please activate sftp to work with Connection track helper to work with the different ports.

                                      Add support to choose multiple Hosted Address when create a Business Application Policy.
                                      Imagine a customer with 3 WAN links and 50 Business Application Policies rules. It is needed create 150 Rules for this. This is a real case today.

                                        Send response to sender (ingoing and outgoing), if mail blocked (attachement) by SMTP Protection.

                                        It is standard in other spam filter and a must have in my oppinion.

                                        • Block IP's using Blacklist/Blocklist Service

                                          Support the use of Blacklists/blocklists. Note that this feature was requested at link below and apparently Sophos thought that ATP would satisfy the need, however it does not provided the requested functionality, Therefore I am re-posting this as a new suggestion.

                                          The old suggestion was marked as implemented by the ATP feature; however ATP is not what was wanted and generates too many false alerts. This is the prior feature request: http://feature.astaro.com/forums/17359-utm-formerly-asg-feature-requests/suggestions/1982075-network-security-block-malicious-botnet-bad-ip-s

                                          Plain and simple: We want support for blocklists. Such as those found here: https://www.iblocklist.com. I would also like to specify a blocklist per network. So for example…
