  1. Pany code in URL filtering

    In modern world, DNS name can contain not only Latin symbols,
    but also Names in Local language format.
    UTM understand Pany-code, we even can define something, like this in WebAdmin (in BlackList or WhiteList):
    http://xn--80aafi6cg.xn--p1ai/
    but you don't understand, what is it.
    For administrators useful have readable domains.

    • Web Application Firewall - Allow more granular exceptions

      Allow exceptions to be defined more granular. For example allow specific protocol anomalies in HTTP Policy or specific checks in SQL Injection Attacks.

      • Backup Remote Gateway for IPSEC VPN Tunnel

        Main office has two ISPs, primary and backup, each with a separate WAN IP. VPN tunnel from remote office to the primary WAN IP. If primary ISP goes down, dynamic routing sends traffic out backup line. I need to be able to configure a backup Remote Gateway on the remote office UTM, so that if it can't establish a tunnel to the primary main office WAN IP, it will try to establish the tunnel to the backup WAN IP. (Very simple and do it all the time on Cisco ASAs).

        • Allow SG115 bridged to LAN network

          Currently it's not possible to use the integrated AP on the SG 115 for a bridged to LAN SSID. Most customers have purchased this unit to use it in this way rather than as a separate zone AP. Could the UTM be updated so we can use it as bridged and separate zone.

            • Allow more IP's on Home/Free UTM

              with all the connected devices its becoming very easy to hit the 50 IP limit on a home edition license. Throw in a few lab servers and you are almost guaranteed to.

              Any chance this can be increased? I see a few years ago this was done.

              • Parallel Usage of VPN(SSL), Userportal and other HTTPS Sites on Port 443

                It would be nice if you could handle it, that we can either use port 443 for VPN (SSL) as also OWA/WAF and(!) Userportal. May this is possible?

                • option to manage MSS-Size

                  Our internet connection requires a special MTU and MSS size.
                  The following rule is required to filter the traffic for all clients on the WAN and WiFi

                  iptables -t filter -I FORWARD 1 -p tcp --tcp-flags SYN,RST SYN
                  -j TCPMSS --set-mss 1360

                  This rule can only be added via the terminal and is not persistent.
                  Please make this option available in the GUI.

                  • Upgrade SSL VPN SPEED from 10 to customized or up to 100

                    My advice upgrade SSL VPN speed from 10 up to 100 or customized speed connection.
                    Usual provider giving you 25 Mbps down and you have in office 100 Mbps fiber and you would like to work with 25MBPS exactly what provider give you at home, and you cant because you're limited for 10MBPS via SSLVPN , then instead of SSL VPN you should open PPTP or L2TP from Sophos and then you get all results of 25

                      make it easy to buy the product online without having to request a quote, I would of purchased product right now if I did not have to wait. Why wait for a quote when we know what we want, other sites let you put in number of licenses, pay for licenses, download and install. Hate having to wait for someone to get back with me with a quote.

                      • 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.

                              Hi!

                              When I go to Network Protection - Firewall and hover over an object I get a pop-up showing the name of the object _which is also written in the rule base_. Since the name is the thing I am hovering over I have no use of that information but what I really need is the IP address.

                              As it is now I have to move frequently between Network definitions and Firewall rules / NAT or I have to open up every rule and hover over the object in the rule definition.

                              Since this is time consuming and error prone…

                                  • to display the corresponding web filter exception name in the http.log

                                    It would be useful if you could see the name of the correspondig web filter exeption in the http.log on the UTM.

                                      This is used for moving cellphone data from one phone to another. It needs to be added to the montored list to ensure we can use this without problem. Currently the androidlib.dll is removed by Sophos so we are not able to use the product

                                      • UTM live log to show a logged in user activity in human readable format

                                        With the raw log it's difficult to follow a single logged in user activity, could there be a live log in human readable format to follow a single user web surfing activity in real time?

                                        • Return original website category for Anonymizer

                                          Many customers have a legitimate use for Google Translate which is classified as an anonymizer when a website is passed through here. Could we return the original category of the website (also included in the URL) rather than the category for Google Translate? This would allow better control of the traffic and remove the only current option of completely allowing all websites through Google Translate or blocking all websites through Google Translate.

                                          Example URL: http://translate.google.co.uk/translate?hl=en&sl=fr&u=http://www.hug-ge.ch
