  1. Virtual Webserver - Wildcard SSL Import Domains

    When using a wildcard SSL certificate, I would like the ability to import a list of domains on a virtual webserver. This is possible on a HTTP virtual webserver, but not when on the HTTPS one. We have a wildcard web development environment and have multiple servers with 50+ sub-domains on each server. Currenlty, we have to manually enter every single domain since the import functionality is not on the HTTPS virtual servers.

    • Failover SXL lookups to Smart Filter Cache

      SXL lookups regularly fail due to issues with the the Sophos service, the virtual host the service is running on or simply just networking issues local to the UTM.

      As the technology already exists to use an offline file then why not simply have an SXL fail over to the local categories. For example, if there was no response to an SXL lookup in 15 seconds failover to the local cache for the next 5 min.

      This way there should never be any downtime in the service which either leaves a customer unable to browse the web or allows a…

      • Autonomous quota consumption (no user confirmation)

        The new quota feature works great, but there is a big problem using quota on mobile devices. Having a media streaming quota configured you have to open a web browser and confirm the amount of time (quota) you want to use. That works fine on desktop, but on mobile IOS devices such requests in a browser gets redirect to a installed APP (You Tube) and you never have the chance to confirm the quota you want to use - as a consequence YouTube app does not have internet connectivity.

                  • Add ability to edit and import a HOSTS file

                    The feature is available on many home routers, but seems to be missing from the UTM which now controls both my work and home networks.

                    It is really nice to be able to import a hosts file such as the one referred to here:
                    http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.htm

                    This allows all attached devices to be able to block various ads and other malicious content really easily. In implementation, it would be nice to be able to either cut and past the desired hosts file into a textbox or perhaps to import a new hosts file. Perhaps the user modified one would be a…

                        • IKEv2 support

                          We would like to see IKEv2 support so that we can connect to Azure.

                          Otherwise this will be a deal breaker and we will be forced to use other appliances very soon.

                            When a recipient receives an SPX encrypted e-mail with inline photos the photos do not appear in the PDF file and are instead attachments inside the PDF. Why not render the e-mail with the photos exactly as it would look if it were received in an e-mail client. We have a customer who has a great deal of difficulty explaining to the recipients how to retrieve the pictures that are attached inside the PDF especially those who use smartphones or tablets to receive the SPX PDF. If they could just open the PDF and see what they need to see…

                            • When creating firewall rules they should be enabled instantly

                              Why don't newly created firewall rules activate automatically? Invariably I forget to go to the end of the list and switch the rule to on after I create it. At least take me to the end of the list after it is created if you can't default them to on. I'm not creating a new rule just so it can sit there disabled, why would it default that way?

                                    feed back from customer

                                    For PCI compliance, we must deactivate user accounts which have not been used in over 90 days. It would be nice if the Sophos had a built-in report that could list user accounts which have not been used in X number of days.

                                    Currently the only way I can think to accomplish this would be to go to Logging & Reporting->Remote Access->Session and generate a Connections report with a start and end date denoting a 90 day period, export it as CVS, strip out all but the most recent session for a given user, then manually…

                                    • Add X-Spam-Flag Header with spam action "warn"

                                      If the astaro antispam engine detects a message as possible spam it should add a header X-Spam-Flag: YES if the spam action is set on "warn".

                                      This is way better than rewriting only the subject.

                                      • vpn timeout

                                        Please have a setting for Remote Access timeout after a certain time of inactivity via SSL etc.

                                        Thanks!

                                        • Add multiple domain searching in SSL VPN

                                          Currently it is not possible for us to add our two domains to the VPN client. Please update so more than one domain can be added in the Remote Access > Advanced section, allowing VPN to search multiple domains.
