  1. Forward public IP to real web server

    CheckBox that allow to send the Public IP of client, instead that private IP of internal interface of WAF, to real web server.

    This to allow IIS and script to retrieve information for statistic and security/configuration check.

    • Direct Yubikey Support in OTP-Module

      Hi there,

      it would be great if the Yubikey (www.yubico.com) could be directly supported in OTP-Module of the Sophos UTM.

      I know that all TOTP-Token (also the Yubikey) are supported. But you need a helper program to generate the TOTP with Yubikey because it doesn't have an internal clock.

      It would be easier (for the enduser) if the Yubikey would be directly supported (For example, by authenticating through the Yubicloud like several Radius Servers do)

      So the user would only need to press the button and the key (that Needs to be validated with the Yubicloud or through…

      • Full Web Control (SWA+SEC) - Make relevant Notification Page beeing returned by Browser also when Blocked site is HTTPS

        When Full Web Control enabled, accessing a Blocked (Category) site,

        - relevant Event reported by Console on relevant Client
        - relevant Windows Balloon reported on Windows SysTray
        - but,

        for HTTP sites, the relevant Notification Page is reported by the Browser
        for HTTPS sites, the relevant Notification Page is NOT reported by the Browser.

        Customer would like the Browser will return relevant Notification Page when accessing an HTTPS site which Category of is Blocked, as it is for HTTP sites.

        • List what Content Control Lists Rule triggered an email alert

          It would be nice if the "Notification regarding potentional leak of data" email sent to administrators would list what Content Control Lists Rule triggered the alert.

          I have my UTM set to allow the email but alert me when content is suspected to have been confidential. I was hoping to use the alerts to help decide what rules are going to be useful in my environment but without an indication of what triggered the alert the message is not very useful.

          It also appears that "potential" is spelled wrong in the subject line.

                The subcategories are not sorted when we setup a new category. Could it be possible to sort them alphabetically ?

                • Active Directory backed groups to be usable in the Firewall configuration

                  We require the Active Directory backed groups to be usable in the Firewall configuration. In our environment we have a secure data centre housing our customers servers. Our support manager or IT team assign rights to individual members of staff on a ticket by ticket basis for access to various parts of the hosted environments. For example one support ticket may require Remote Desktop access, whereas another may
                  require SQL server access.

                  We have configured the relevant rules in the UTM to allow people in a specific AD group to connect to the Remote Desktop ports over the VPN. The…

                  • Enable detection of suspicious files in Endpoint Security via the UTM

                    Currently there are limited settings available to configure Sophos Endpoint Security and Control via the UTM. Any settings changed on the endpoints (eg to scan for 'suspicious files') is overridden whenever the UTM enforces it's policy. I would like to see an option added to the UTM to enable detection of 'suspicious files' (not just suspicious behaviour). Allowing all settings on the endpoints to be configured by the UTM would be even better!

                    • add internet speed test to support tools

                      Add an internet speed test (using something like speedtest-cli or a nagios check_speedtest-cli) to the management interface support tools. This check should bypass DPI, IPS/IDS, AV, etc. so users can tune the security services for optimal protection and speed. This could also be used as a reference when setting up QoS or even as variables in QoS settings as internet traffic speeds often are increased without user knowledge and the current QoS bandwidth settings are static. Periodically check internet speeds and report in the network graphics and executive reports.

                                  • Name resolution on Wireless Status

                                    When you click on Wireless protection a list of connected devices show up, but the UTM is able to identify the hostname only for networks that the UTM is managing the DNS. If a wifi network is set to "bridged to AP LAN" the UTM shows only the MAC address instead of IP or DNS name.
