  1. 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:
    Making the…

      • Web Protection: Possibility to select existing URL blacklist & whitelist objects

        In UTM 9.3 Sophos introduced the concept of URL tags, but the referenced website configuration "only" supports URLs, domains, ip addresses and CIDR ranges. So they do not fully replace blacklist/whitelist entries which especially allow regular expressions.

        Therefore I do not see http://feature.astaro.com/forums/17359-utm-formerly-asg-feature-requests/suggestions/436457-web-protection-global-url-blacklist-whitelist-f as completed.

        Internally, black- and whitelists are obviously already global objects that are referenced in filter actions. And UTM already requires them to have a uniqe name even across filter actions. So we just need a possibility to choose the existing ones from a left hand side list like any other global object.

        • ATP Recent Threads Overview in SUM

          It is possible to manage the Advanced Threat Protection over SUM4.

          But except of the CRIT-861-notification or checking the UTM, there is no way to see what UTMs had recent events.
          i think it would make things easier if there was a overview about that threats in either the Configuration>ATP section or in the Monitoring>Threats section.

          • Add access controls for RED "Listening" Service

            As a Sophos Partner, I'm increasingly getting hammered by clients who have to subject themselves to audits in order to do business. Therefore I am asking that Sophos add access controls to the RED listening service. I am requesting that the RED service on the UTM be configured to use any arbitrary IP address on any of the WAN interfaces, and only allow connections from RED devices from known IPs. Here's why:

            I have clients who fail PCI compliance audits because of the self signed IP. I know that the 1 CA trust model is better, but the auditors my…

            • Wildcard support for antispam's sender blacklist & excepted email addresses

              Under "EMAIL PROTECTION > SMTP > ANTISPAM > SPAMFILTER"
              you are able to block email senders by adding their domain. You are also able to use wildcards i.e. "*@domain.com".

              Same you can do under "EMAIL PROTECTION > SMTP > EXPEPTIONS" to add a sender's email address to except him from specific rules (HELO, Antispam, etc.) buy using the same format and wildcards i.e. "*@domain.com".

              Unfortunately I get more and more spam emails from the same domain which uses A TON of subdomains i.e. the following (german) spam site:

              *@elektronik.de-at-ch.com

                • (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).

                    • 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.

                        Sophos Safe Guard - Self Help screen allows viewing of the current password, but does not allow change of password. Enabling change of password at this screen would increase security level a step further.

                        • Country blocking vs Endpoint Protection to fail to connect and update status of the managed PC

                          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.

                                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?

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

                                  For example:

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

                                    When you blacklist an IP address it shows as malicious and is not saying "blacklisted"

                                    When you blacklist a DNS domain it shows first as category block when you haven't set it as blacklisted but then it will correctly show as "blacklisted" afterwards. Won't work in the IP blacklisting though.

                                    • DNS Request Routing By Interface

                                      Hey Everyone,

                                      My corp has the same dns externally as externally (abc.com internal and abc.com external). We are using the protected wifi with an employee zone that does not have or need access to the internal network. But when those devices are using the utm as their DNS they inherently have access to the internal DNS. With this many services like outlook any where attempts routing to the internal network because it detects the internal DNS. So i would like to ask for DNS Request routing and have an option to select the interface that applies to. So i would…

                                      • New report for number of connected users each day/month/year

                                        I see the number of connections in a graph, but currently have to hover over each day to see the # of connections, which I then enter into a spreadsheet. I need to report this each month to our board. Everything you report is bandwidth and average related

                                        • 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.
