  1. SNMP: Site-to-Site connection Status

    It would be great to actively monitor (pull) the status of Site-to-Site connections via snmp to include this in the monitoring system.

    Additionally the ability to simply turn a Site-to-Site connection on/off via snmp would help a lot too.

    • SPX recipent password reset

      Did the end-user password reset functionality go away at some point? I have a newly integrated UTM 9 at version 9.4. In the SPX end-user provided password template, it would be nice to have the user password feature back. Even with end user provided passwords they will surely forget eventually. I am trying to avoid getting into the password reset business. It also added to the ease of use to both my users and their recipients.

      Thanks,
      Ryan

        • Simultaneous Active STAS Collectors

          Would like to have multiple active STAS collectors reporting logins on DC directly to UTM. The current model only allows one collector to report to the UTM with other DCs using agents to feed the one collector.

          • The UTM should have a capability to restart the red device that it is managing...

            Today our Sophos Red 50 cannot provide internet access to networks behind it but we can still connect through tunnel and can view networks behind. After restarting the RED it goes back to normal but the thing is we have to go on site to unplug the unit physically. As per your support, currently there is no way we can just restart the RED remotely even if connection to UTM is still up.

            • Change the Notification text from "Message delivery incomplete"

              If the sender send me an e-mail with a forbidden file extension he gets the following notification:
              "Betreff: Message delivery incomplete

              Your message to the following recipients was quarantined:

              <xyz@web.de>, quarantine reason: File Extension (zip)

              Please contact your IT administrator for further assistance."

              The idea would be change this text of the alert.

                  • Admin rights on web admin page to forcefully logout a user

                    It would be very useful if admins could force individual users to be logged out from the web appliance. This would help in cases where the authentication timeout is very long and the user has closed the captive portal window that allows them to log out.

                    • Mailhandling / Quarantine

                      Hi! I know that "mails" are just a part of the UTM, but the way it is solved now, no one really can use it.

                      1) Quarantine reports are always written "in the same language" as the admin panel. Since all manual found in the internet are in english i think 95% of all users use the admin panel in english language. For admins this is usually no problem. But that differs with the "end user". The end users usually need their "native" language. So why is there no possibility to set up "a different report language". U can set…

                              • make it easy to post proxy.pac files on the management server. Upload the file, server spits out a URL, and give that URL out to our users.

                                In regards to Sophos Web appliance/proxy, it would be very convenient if we could generate a pac file, upload it to the Sophos management appliance server, have it spit out a URL that we can give to our users. This would simplify the process and allow us to not have to rely on another server to host our pac file.

                                • Allow referer links from trusted web sites without need to allow all advertisment web sites

                                  We have a corporate perks web site, and for some perks it redirects via Doubleclick and other such sites - unfortunately we block "Advertisements & Pop-ups" (which includes this doubleclick domain) and so the user is blocked from reaching the end page.

                                  Could an option be added so that the HTTP referer header is checked - and if that is on the trusted list, allow access.

                                  This would allow us to say that links from our Corporate Perks page are allowed, but still block all other accesses to doubleclick referers etc.

                                  • Allow FULL control of DHCP option types

                                    Many of the current DHCP options are needlessly restricted and limited to a particular type, for example: 125 is HEX and 66 is TEXT. Some systems that use these options require a different value type. In the case of option 125, Mitel phone systems require this as a string.

                                    We should stop restricting the DHCP option type and instead default to the expected value but allow users to configure this as per their network requirements.

                                    • SSL VPN

                                      We recently migrated Sophos OS from cyberoam OS.

                                      We have two internet connections from two different ISPs. One of the connection is our primary connection and other one is our secondary connection.
                                      whenever someone dials the SSL VPN connection it is actually getting connected to our backup connection (our backup connection is of slow speed)

                                      We would like have our SSL VPN users to get connected to our primary WAN connection instead of secondary.

                                      This feature is currently not there is current version of sophos os firewall.

                                      Also raised support request for the same, service request number 1050587.

                                        • Create an option to allow NON standard ports for specific websites

                                          We have a lot of customers using NON standard ports for specific websites. The only (working) option is to add a service port to the Allowed Target Servives. It would be preferable to be able to add the specific exeption (portnumber) only for the specific URL, instead of an global exeption for those ports.
