  1. AD Prefetch schedule

    Presently AD Prefetch schedule isn't picking up newly created accounts in AD. Every time we need to click on "Prefetch now" to have the new accounts in UTM instead. It would be nice if the prefetch schedule could pick up newly created users in AD automatically.

    • tor meek block

      Blocking TOR-MEEK would be a great feature.

      The application filters do not block any MEEK-REFLECT connections, the only way stopping clients to use TOR is taking them offline or blocking the entire internet including google/apple and microsoft wich isnt a option...soooo ? plz? :)

      • WebAdmin: ACL / Role for Time Period Definitions

        We are a service provider, fully managing a Sophos HA cluster at a customer site. Customer logins to the system should be limited to ONLY change Time Period Definitions, because
        we created several firewall-rules that are used to allow external third parties (eg. software and hardware support providers) access to internal client systems at the customers network. These are temporarily activated and deactivated using time period definitions.

        Now it would be very beneficial if there would be an ACL to grant access to our customer to only modify the time period definitions so they can enable access to their external…

        • Allow DHCP relay through VPN tunnel on a PPPoE interface

          Allow addition of a PPPoE interface to the DHCP relay allowed interfaces list.
          Presently the UTM is unable to perform DHCP relay through a VPN tunnel if the external interface is a PPPoE interface

          • Show uptime for PPPOE and DIAL devices

            I would like to see on the dashboard the uptime for any dialup links like ADSL PPPOE - or time since last 'connection' - plus a hover over or similar quick link shows the last 10 uptimes - this can help determine if an interface is flapping
            At the moment if I think a link is down by the time I login to the UTM it may already be reconnected and I cant tell if it was a link outage or something else - if the dashboard shows uptime this it is simple to see if a recent disconnect happened…

              Please add the feature for the copy and paste from local machine to HTML5 session. It would also be nice to allow copying from HTML5 session to another HTML5 session.

              • automatic configuration in UTM to automatically delete out of office replies that are getting stuck in the SMTP spool

                ompany: Kent Police

                Contact: Stuart Patton

                Sophos Product: UTM 220

                Version in Production: 9.352-6

                How will this new feature address your business requirements: It will allow us to keep the SMTP spool clear of messages that have no prospect of being delivered
                (out-of-office replies to do-not-reply messages that originate from domains with no MX records)

                How would you rate the importance of this feature?; 1 = Critical, 5 = Nice-to-have: 1 if a large SMTP spool impacts the UTM performance, 5 if it does not ;-)

                • Add "Send me a secure copy" when using SPX encryption

                  With the Sophos Email Appliance, there is an option to "Send me a secure copy" when replying to an email. There is no such option with the UTM. This is a required feature for legal so that they can prove that they actually sent correspondence.

                  • Synchronising between Microsoft AD with Sophos Firewall.

                    We discovered a problem when synchronising between Microsoft AD with Sophos Firewall. If the AD include two accounts with the same email address, then the Sophos firewall can not synchronise these AD accounts with the internal Sophos database. Is the possible to change that, because many companies are using an email address for two or more employees. Thank you in advance.

                    • Have Sophos Deployment Packager skip copying files when the source directory is the local machine

                      If a local location is entered in the "source folder" field in Sophos Deployment Packager, it should recognize this fact and skip making an extra copy of the files. By "local location" I mean if the path starts with a drive letter as well as a UNC path that starts with the name of the local machine.

                              • qos setting dynamic limits on uplinks

                                I would like to allocate set bandwidth for different vlans (deparments) including voice traffic. Is it possible for us to setup a 100Mb link as follows:

                                VLAN1- 20Mb
                                VLAN2- 20Mb
                                VLAN3- 30Mb
                                VLAN4- 10Mb
                                VOICE traffic- 10Mb

                                I would like to have it set like the above but say if one vlan require more bandwidth and it is available on the link it should be able to grow. The limit should not be a maximum limit so to speak.

                                • different IP addresses for concurrent L2TP VPN user

                                  A same L2TP user account logged on 2 different computers receive a same IP address from external DHCP server, and it makes concurrent L2TP VPN user not feasible.
                                  It would be nice if UTM can support concurrent L2TP VPN users by allocating different IP addresses to client computers.

                                  • Option to redirect to port 80 when SSL certificate is invalid

                                    I am finding blocked sites because the server has port 443 open even though SSL is not used. Most often, the site is hosted on akamai, and the server has a default certificate for a248.e.akamai.net. Sometimes this occurs because the user does a Google search and Google's search result uses HTTPS. I suspect that their search database favors HTTPS over HTTP when both are available.

                                    When I contact site owners, they are generally not motivated to close port 443, and the Google search database will be slow to update even if they are responsive.

                                    It would be helpful to have…

                                      In other words I want to know how long you become able to detect a certain virus by an anti-VirusScan function of UTM.
                                      In addition, customer oneself allows you to confirm the information of the date and time.

                                        Ability to show disclaimer/security warning when logging into SSL vpn. Similar to the one you see when logging into the web admin console.
