  1. Improving health checks for server load balancing

    We recently switched from a Kemp load balancer to using the built-in Server Load Balancing feature on Sophos UTM. A big feature we are now missing is the ability to do a http/https get/return health check that allows us to specify a path and look for specific text to be returned to determine if a real server is up or down.

    A second feature missing is the ability to quickly disable a real server in server load balancing. Instead we have to set the weight to 0 and disable/enable the server load balancing rule to stop request going to the…

    • Port forwarding/NAT configuration wizard

      Currently, it is a time consuming nightmare for an admin, especially one new to Sophos, to configure port forwards. Doing something as simple as opening Port 80 for a web server, that would also be accessible from the LAN, is needlessly complicated. It might be nice to have powerful features in the GUI, but something should be done to make this common task more intuitive. On an old Linksys router, this is an intuitive, 3 minute task. I'm assuming most end users are not configuring port forwards every day, which means they are not experts, and it needs to be…

      • Add an option on application control rule to execute either before or after web filter

        By default application control rules are executed after web filtering and once a URL is blocked by webfiltering, application control is no longer executed. It would be nice if we can specify whether an application control rule is executed before or after web filtering. This would be useful if you want to let's say block all media streaming sites except Youtube. So all I have to do is create a web filtering rule to block media streaming category and create a application control rule to allow YouTube and have it execute before web filtering. This way I don't have to…

        • Make onboard OTP usable for special virtuell webserver

          At the Moment we can use the new OTP Feature just for all virtuell webserver. Therefore, it is not possible to use this great new function in most implementations.

          An example, many customers want to publish Exchange Services like OWA, ActiveSync and Outlook Anywhere. OWA with OTP and ActiveSync without OTP. But that is not possible.

          I suggest, you implement a new authentication Profile for OTP that we can use in the site path Routing.

            • encrypt a message released from quarantine

              Make it so a message that is released from quarantine could be encrypted

              For instance, outbound message has credit card numbers in it, so it is quarantined. The Admin see this and knows the email must go through, but it should be encrypted, so encrypt then release.

              • ability to block/drop mail from blacklisted senders?

                there is no such option for this, except option to drop spam/confirmed spam alltogether, which we dont want.
                we still want to see/check what's coming in, except for those sender's already on the blacklist - they still go into quarantine however wich makes no sense except to make the quarantine log harder to work with.
                thanks!

                • Detailed process usage log

                  Problem: I have spikes in CPU usage at random times that cause outages in phone service. There is no way, that I know of, to determine what caused these spikes.

                  Solution: Log snapshots of all Process's running, along with other information that can be used to determine cause of high CPU spikes. This would allow users to look back and see what process were running and what they were doing to cause a CPU/memory spike.

                  • User-defined field for DynDNS

                    My idea: DynDns field for user-defined Update-URL to use all DynDNS providers and Features like MX-Record and A-record.

                    So it is not necessary, to put all DynDNS providers in the choise field.

                          • Allow IP address ranges to be used in Web Profile Allowed Networks

                            Currently, in a web profile, you can add networks and hosts to the allowed networks but not IP address ranges. Our customers typically want to have easily-recognisable ranges that go outside the 24-bit mask (eg 172.16.200.1 - 172.16.209.254) so this has to be converted to networks and hosts, which is messy.

                              Have an agent which polls Active Directory Domain Controllers for user logon events to determine which user is logged onto each machine. This would allow for all users on the domain to be authenticated without requiring any settings on their machines. There would need to be an option to exclude logon events for service accounts.

                                We want the ability to use an iPhone ( or Android ) as a modem via USB tethering in the event of an internet outage at the site.

                                Instructions from IT would then be as simple as asking the Branch manager to plug their iphone into the red and turn hot spotting on.

                                • Configurable port for full transparent web filtering of http traffic - not only 80

                                  Would be useful for example to use this feature for web filtering in front of an existing web proxy that has already been configured for other port than 80 (e.g. 8080) without changing for all the clients/applications the proxy settings (e.g. from 8080 to 80).

                                  • spx portal should not use webadmin certificate

                                    When answering an E-Mail through the SPX Portal an certificate error occurs. And it seems that the WebAdmin certificate is used.
                                    It would be better when you could upload an custom certificate

                                    • App for Windows Phone

                                      In Windows Phone 8.1 you can setup a VPN. But only with ikeV2. But Microsoft offers the possibility of using an App, to aply more autentication-standards. Now there are only 2 Apps, who can handle this. Its JUNOS PULSE VPN and SONICWALL MOBILE CONNECT. Both are incompatible with Sophos UTM. So please add IKEv2 Support or an App to the Winodws Phone Store
