  1. HW LED for IPSEC status.

    I want a green/red LED in the front of the ASG 110/120 unit, that indicates if the IPSEC VPN is up (established) or down. This makes it a lot easier to directly see if there is a problem with VPN connection w/o logging in to it.
    Maybe this feature should be choosable in the gui, "Show VPN status: Enable/Disable"

    • Notifications: Remove PPPoE-Reconnects from Up/Down notifiers

      It would be great if there won't be double notifications (down/up) during scheduled pppoe reconnects - they tend to get piled up customers complain about these apperent warnings.

      Disabling the notifications on the internet-uplinks would be no good, as I and my customers will miss problems on the connections.

        • Web Application Firewall: Time-based Rulesets/Events

          More and more customers see a need in restricting their (internal) webservices (owa/active sync for example) to business hours only to ensure occupational safety and health guidelines or even laws.

          We/our customers would greatly appreciate a feature like this added into the WAF of ASG/UTM, some option where you choose to make certain services available only at specific times.

          • HTML5 VPN Portal: RDP Connect local resources

            Create the possibility that we can connect to local resources on the client pc/laptop within a remote desktop session, like when using mstsc. Ofcourse it has to be possible that we can allow or disallow it.

            • Web Protection: Image Optimization by Scaling / Compression

              Al-la the packeteer days, it would be great to not need to use an upstream proxy to achieve Image scaling/compression for our low bandwidth applications.

              It would be preferable to have this built into our Astaro/UTM and remove the need for another device to manage.

              Being able to specify the level of compression/scaling for different clients, device/agent types, or browsers would also be awesome!

              • Mail Protection: Keep forwarded message in the Spam Quarantine

                It is not technically possible to fully verify if forwarded mail is accepted by User Mailsystem. Quarantined E-Mail should stay in Quarantine to be cleaned / expired instead.

                • SNMP: Poll for current Cluster Status via SNMP

                  We have a lot of systems which we all monitor via Nagios / Icinga.
                  Some of the Systems are also Cluster Firewalls and they give us the posibility to check the cluster status via SNMP.

                  Is it possible to become a SNMP OID to check the cluster status?

                  Eq... 0 all OK....1 Master Down... ***** now Master... ect

                      • Authentication: Configurable RADIUS timeout

                        The RADIUS timeout setting is hardcoded, and can't be adjusted from the UI. Third part two factor authentication systems like PhoneFactor use "out of band" methods to complete authentication. Such schemes can take 20-30 seconds to complete an Auth. With the current hardcoded RADIUS timeout Astrado is not compatible with these solutions as the timeout needs to be set appropriately.

                        • Raid Monitoring: Add MegaCLI Tool for Dell PERC / LSI MegaRAID

                          Please add the MegaCLI Tool to control Dell PERC / LSI MegaRAID Controller thru the MegaCLI Tool provided by LSI. It works great for a lot of controllers (PERC based on MegaRAID). While this CLI Tool requires very much no dependencies but a working driver (already given by 8.3!) it should be no problem to integrate it into one of the next updates. Please!!

                                    • Webfilter Override Multiple Sites

                                      Webfilter override facility. We need to be able to (in addition to a single website for a pre-determined length of time) override all website blocks for a user-defined length of time – a time length that they can choose. An additional button is required on the block page for this facility, for those allowed. Urgent request.

                                      • Networking: Use Listbox Widget for DNS Domains in DNS Request Routing

                                        Allow for multiple domains per set of DNS servers.

                                        As it is now i mostly add some internal domains to it and say which DNS servers it needs to use for it as also the in-addr.arpa zones. Now i need to make a new set for every domain which is very tiresome and unnecessary if i could just say use these DNS servers for these domainS.

                                        • Reporting: Add Date & Time Fields to Web Reports

                                          Add the possibility to view the date/time stamp for each instance on standard reports. I'm trying to run a web browsing report on users but need time/date of browsing.
