    • Introduce fail-over thresholds

      When you have two interfaces configured in active/standby mode, and your active interface experiences intermittent issues, the UTM will rapidly flick between the active and standby interfaces. This can cause connections to continuously drop, depending on how frequent the issues with your active connection are.

      It would be helpful if there was a threshold to the failover, for example allowing me to state "If active down, failover to standby. When active up, wait for $x continuous minutes of uptime before resuming use of that interface". This allows the device to handle connectivity issues in a more graceful way.

        • Don't Keep Write Ahead Logs (WALs) in Non-clustered Installations

          By default, the Sophos UTM (Astaro) PostreSQL configuration is configured with High Availability (HA) settings enabled irrespective of whether a HA license is installed and/or two or more devices are installed. One of these settings, wal_keep_segments, has been set to a value of 100 ever since Sophos UTM version 9.100-16 and since each Write Ahead Log (WAL) segment is 16MB, this results in a extra 1.6GB of disk space being consumed unnecessarily. The default value for wal_keep_segments is 0 and setting it to this value before starting the PostgreSQL service prevents it from keeping any new WAL segments. I have…

            • Indicate in the mail manager logs when a Spam marker (*SPAM*) is added.

              Currently items that are blackholed show as such in the message logs, but I do not see any indicators in the mail manager or raw logs when a spam marker (such as *SPAM*/[SPAM]) is added to a message.

              • When manually defining Soft Token, provide a RANDOM Secret button.

                When using the One Time Password (OTP) facility to manually build Soft Tokens for users; it would be nice if the UTM could provide a 'Generate Random Secret' button; as currently you have to manuall source/define a 128 bit hex secret key. Using a Random string generator that confirms to the UTM requirements of manually defined OTP secrets would make things easier.

                • Checkbox for auto-activating a new firewall-rule

                  We sometimes forget to activate a new firewall-rule after creating it (we are humans :-) ) - it should be easy to integrate a checkbox in the new-firewall-rule-template that will automatically activate the firewall-rule after creating it! Thats even faster and more reliable! Thanks in advance!

                  • access to vouchersmanagment by usersright

                    We ve 2 Wlans with vouchers. Wlan 1 for guests and Wlan 2 for some special users with morge free ports and more access into the lan.
                    An option to allow user 1 to manage only vouchers for wlan1 and allow user 2 to make vouchers or wlan 1 and 2 would be nice.

                    • E-Mail Encryption: User-Import from Active Directory

                      Id should be possible to import the Users from the AD.
                      Import the users from the AD and then you can manage all on the Sophos-UTM, so what i mean is only an import with name and E-Mail-Address, all other settings should be able to set on the UTM.

                      • App for Windows Phone

                        In Windows Phone 8.1 you can setup a VPN. But only with ikeV2. But Microsoft offers the possibility of using an App, to aply more autentication-standards. Now there are only 2 Apps, who can handle this. Its JUNOS PULSE VPN and SONICWALL MOBILE CONNECT. Both are incompatible with Sophos UTM. So please add IKEv2 Support or an App to the Winodws Phone Store

                        • Web Server Protection: Certificate-based Authentication

                          I would appreciate to support certificate-based authentication like at Microsoft TMG. I don't know why Sophos is making advertisements for "Replace your TMG with Sophos UTM" if UTM even can't do this! I want the reverse proxy to check a client certificate, If this certificate is not valid or it doesn't exists it shows an error page.

                          • Negate

                            It just does a reverse of what it would be normally.

                            you create a rule that allows

                            src = DMZ net
                            dst = Internal Network (Negate)
                            srv = http
                            action = Allow

                            This permits the DMZ to HTTP to the Internet what having to define 2 rules.

                            One that would BOCK DMZ to HTTP to the Internal Network and the other to PERMIT DMZ to HTTP to ANY.

                            It is quite common to see a group defined that contains all of the internal and dmz networks and then negate that group in the destination column to allow internet access.

                            This…

                              I would love to see a captive portal integrated with a push notification. This way, users who don't have a lot of people who access their guest network can avoid dealing with passwords/PINs, etc. This also enables people to request access without having gained a voucher in the first place. Here's how I imagine it might work:

                              A) User joins the wireless network, and is given the captive portal.
                              B) On the captive portal, the user is given the option to "Request access" if they don't already have a voucher and enters the information requested (customizable, probably name and maybe…

                                  • Mixed types on same Hotspot

                                    Add support for mixed Hotspot types for the same Captive Portal. Like "SMS", "Voucher" & "Password" all on same Portal.

                                    It's very common for public Hotspots to offer mutliple options for authentication, especially Hotels for example allow Login via e.g. "room#, Name and date of departure", "Voucher" or simple "Password".

                                    Currently, customers would need to create multiple different SSIDs with weird namings, one for each hotspot type to achieve this.

                                    Display all the different input fields at the portal and put some boxes around the different login form fields to easy differentiate them.

                                      • Encrypt any password that is entered, so it doesnt show plain text in logs.

                                        any password that is entered is stored in plain text in the change log. This should be shown as an encrypted password, or the ability to delete the change log.
