  1. Webfilter response for specific HTTPS requests (webfilter messages)

    If Webfilter is configured in Standard Mode and HTTPS URL-Filtering is activated, and it is not an option to distribute the Proxy CA Certificate to the whole clients (because no domain membership), and the user requests for example a HTTPS Website with the result "host not found", the delivered HTTPS content to the client browser is destroyed (CSS and Images). We need a solution for our users.

      • Add configurable request header field for reverse proxy into webadmin

        Browser generate sometimes for services like ADFS very big request headers.

        It would be great if you can implement such a editable field in webadmin.

        One issue is described in the following threat.

        • Put all Remote Access>Client Options under Remote Access>%VPN type%>%Remote Access Profile%

          The reason for this is to allow different domains and DNS settings per VPN profile. This allows for companies with odd networking setups, like a single internet access point for multiple domains on different servers, to use the same Sophos UTM for VPN traffic and authentication.

          • Puremessage for Exchange: Allow sender

            Company and Contact Information

            Company: CXtec

            Contact: Scott Brissenden

            Sophos Partner (if applicable):

            Sophos Product Information

            Sophos Product: Sophos PureMessage for Exchange

            Version in Production: 4.0.1

            Feature Request Summary

            How will this new feature address your business requirements?:
            Our accounts receivables receives a couple emails almost daily from a specific vendor that zips their attachments.
            We block all zip attachments and have to manually deliver these messages. It would be nice to specify if, on inbound emails, a specific sender can send attachments (or specific attachment types) without them being quarantined.

            How would you rate the importance of this feature?;…

            • LDAP/TOTP Server proxy

              Astaro/Sophos UTM will happily use an external LDAP server as an authentication source. And then apply over that its own TOTP layer. But it cannot provide that TOTP service to other devices, except for internal websites using the reverse proxy.

              I'd like to see Astaro offer an external facing LDAP service, as a proxy for other LDAP servers with an optional OTP enhancement. This would allow an organisation to provide a single OTP source against a whole range of services such as mail servers, file servers and much more; all without configuring multiple OTP servers.

              • TCP Connection Timeout - Modification

                It's important in case of using EAS (Exchange Active Sync) that the TCP connection timeout can be increased within the gui. At the moment only one unsupported workaround exists:

                cc [Enter]
                packetfilter [Enter]
                timeouts [Enter]
                ip_conntrack_tcp_timeout_close_wait$ [Enter]

                It's an important feature if you use EAS.
                You will find more information about this topic here:

                  • authentication

                    I believe we should be able to specify which authentication server to use for each login method.
                    It should not fallback to any other servers not specified.

                      • Allow a comment to be added to the mac address table.

                        Allow a comment to be added to the mac address table so that you can record what devices the address is for. This makes it easy to manage the list if a device is to be removed.

                        It would also be nice if the wireless clients list could look up the comment and display it next to the record so you could see the device in the list.

                        • Have SUM refuse UTM connections with shared password if none is set in SUM

                          I had to reinstall my Hyper-V host some months ago. All works fine, but all my VMs have new MAC addresses. Result is that I cannot connect to my SUM virtual machine anymore. It boots up fine, but I guess it cannot find its old interface hardware.
                          No problem, I wanted to upgrade it to 4.2 anyway. So I shut the old VM down and installed a new SUM VM. I thought I would copy the firewall rules by hand from one of the UTMs and then switch over to the new SUM. Of course, during install I gave it…

                            It would be nice if there was a "HOLD" feature in the mail manager. If there was a way to “hold” the e-mails on the UTM – when I was done checking the exchange servers, I could then “unhold” them and release the e-mails.

                              • dhcp lease alive or dead - colour coding

                                would be nice to have colour coding in the DHCP Lease Table view to know immediately if leases are about to expire, expired, or alive/dead

                                about to expire = orange (light version of nice orange used in fonts for ui)
                                expired = grey
                                alive = green (light version similar as above: signifies machine is online)
                                dead = red (light version: signify machine is not online)

                                  • Built-in UPS for UTM/RED

                                    Some industrial and small form factor PCs are now being offered with an on-board UPS so that no extra hardware is needed. Building this into the smaller UTM appliances and the RED would help to make the devices even easier to deploy and manage.

                                    • Making visible the WLAN MAC Adress of the AP

                                      It would be great to see the WLAN MAC adresses of the AP's directly in WebAdmin. This would be very helpful for example when creating a Heatmap .

                                      • Configuration Viewer to view saved configuration

                                        It would be helpfull to have an Configuration Viewer to have a look inside old saved configuration or configuration from other users. The Viewers should have the same look like the original astaro Administration surface with all the menus.

                                        • Banner for outgoing mail with attachements

                                          Customer would like the same function in the UTM as per the Email Appliance to specify what types of messages they can add a banner to.

                                          For example, they currently want to add a banner for outgoing messages with attachments only - not all messages.
