  1. display the IP addresses of each interface in the dashboard

    It would be nice to see all IP addresses of an interface in the dashboard. So it will be easier to view the actual public IP.

    • Authentication: Possibility to authenticate ADS users based on their Domain membership

      It must be possible for the ADS user to logon the Userpotal due to their domain membership.

      Example 1: Sales \ John Smith
      Example 2: Marketing \ John Smith

      How can the user be distinguished if they have different access rights ? Until now, the system can not distinguish that.
      Users have until now always the same access though different access rights are defined for both users

          • Pany code in URL filtering

            In modern world, DNS name can contain not only Latin symbols,
            but also Names in Local language format.
            UTM understand Pany-code, we even can define something, like this in WebAdmin (in BlackList or WhiteList):
            http://xn--80aafi6cg.xn--p1ai/
            but you don't understand, what is it.
            For administrators useful have readable domains.

            • Web Application Firewall - Allow more granular exceptions

              Allow exceptions to be defined more granular. For example allow specific protocol anomalies in HTTP Policy or specific checks in SQL Injection Attacks.

              • 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.

                • Upgrade SSL VPN SPEED from 10 to customized or up to 100

                  My advice upgrade SSL VPN speed from 10 up to 100 or customized speed connection.
                  Usual provider giving you 25 Mbps down and you have in office 100 Mbps fiber and you would like to work with 25MBPS exactly what provider give you at home, and you cant because you're limited for 10MBPS via SSLVPN , then instead of SSL VPN you should open PPTP or L2TP from Sophos and then you get all results of 25

                  • Support for more Windows Active Directory login formats

                    Please support more allowed AD login formats for pre authentication and/or implement the possibility to rewrite (with regex) the login strings before authentication.

                    I have lot of ActiveSync users in a multiple domain environment for example and they are pre authenticated with a TMG. At the moment it isn’t possible to move the service to the UTM. Our ActiveSync clients (iPhone/Windows Phone) authenticate in most cases with the following formats:

                    NT4-domain\username
                    W2K-domain\username

                    With a rewriting feature I would rewrite W2K-domain\username” to username@W2K-domain (UPN-Style). The user could be authenticated with LDAP now.

                    • 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

                      • 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

                          • SMTP Proxy MIME delivery status notifications

                            Currently, the Sophos UTM OS does not support RFC 3462 MIME-type delivery status notifications. This causes issues for when Outlook clients recieve non-RFC bouncebacks from the UTM as they will not treat it as a delivery status notification, but reather as a new email and apply any inbox rules. This can lead to bounceback storms.

                            Additionally, in an Exchange environment, bouncebacks are intercepted and reformatted for easier user readibility.

                              Provide a method to transfer some settings (Ie Mail Protection Settings) from one UTM to another UTM. At this time the only supported method is to Restore the entire configuration from backup. I would like to be able to restore only a portion of the config and retain any existing settings on the target UTM

                                • Add a recipient verification static whitelist

                                  In the Email Protection module, it would help some customers to have the option to use a static recipient verification whitelist.

                                  Whilst the ability to integrate with Active Directory or with the SMTP callout is a way of doing very little daily configuration on the appliance, some customers would prefer to take as much unnecessary load away from the underlying mail host. For security reasons, some customers also might not want their mail security appliance integrated with Active Directory.

                                  Wikipedia quotes many sources which highlight a vast array of security issues/concerns with using callout verification protecting underlying infrastructure:

                                  • Fix the Country Blocking Exceptions to allow the exceptions to work properly

                                    When I want to allow only specific hosts or DNS names from a specific country, it should allow that and actually work.

                                    So if I block all of Russia, I should be able to explictly allow items for a specific business I interact with therebyt either IP or DNS host name. The system says it allows this now, but it doesn't fully work.

                                    I may also only want to allow email traffic (port 25) for one company but not allow other port traffic.

                                    This is opened as a support case as well, but support technician said to open a feature…

                                          There's no interface comments shown on IF-MIB::ifAlias (empty). Needs the interface comment (description) for my SNMP monitoring software.
