  1. Make the SMTP log in Mail Manager exportable to PDF

    Making the SMTP log exportable keeping the colour coding would help IT managers send the data to non-IT related managers/directors - this would be very easy for them to interpret as dumping the colossal data based LOG now is very difficult to pick through.

    • Configure Dead Peer Detection based on connection

      Currently Dead peer detection (DPD) for IPsec connections is configured under 'Advanced' and can be only switched off for all connections. There is no technical reason to do so because the underlaying strongSwan allowes configuration based on each connection. Image a large installation with over 50 VPNs and only one remote gateway where RFC 3706 is not correctly implemented. Please move this option to 'Connection' or 'Policy'.

        • Configure Network Services from New Interface Dialog Box

          Add the ability to create a DHCP scope and add the new interface network to DNS and NTP allowed networks directly from the "create new interface" dialog box. Also have a checkbox option to automatically create a masquerading rule on the uplink interfaces for the new network.

          • Web Application Firewall: Remote Desktop Gateway support

            Similar to support for Outlook Anywhere, it would be really beneficial if the WAF allowed for the publishing of Remote Desktop Gateway and handled those methods. RDG_OUT_DATA followed by RPC_IN_DATA and RPC_OUT_DATA, and including /RemoteDesktopGateway in the request. It seems like common functionality that many customers must be looking for...

              • Add search capability to blocked emails.

                I sometimes have 500 or more emails in my blocked email list. It would be great if we could search through the email to find messages to unblock. An example would be if an email had an invoice number in the content or a product name such as Autocad. We could search on a word or number to find any blocked emails that we want to unblock.

                • to have the possibility to send more than just one executive report with different configurations

                  It would be great to have the possibility to send more than just one executive report with different configurations. For example I would like to have one executive report for the sysadmins with all features included send on a weekly base. But I also would like to send an executive report to my VPN users where the report just shows who logged in on a daily base.

                  • Disable the need for root password for fsck on boot when filesystem is not clean/damaged after power outage. Automate fsck process on boot.

                    Our UTM120 did no longer boot and upon connecting a screen we notice it was asking for the root password to perform a manual fsck on /tmp

                    As the default setup on the UTM does not have a root password set we were unable to repair the filesystem and we experienced quite some downtime before we were able to reset the root password and repair the filesystem.

                    Is it possible in a future update to address this issue ? Automatically repair filesystem errors on bootup ? Skip fsck on /tmp ? Allow fsck to be performed without root login ?

                        • allow us to configure automatic SPX encryption for specific email ddresses or domains please.

                          It would be useful to enable SPX encryption to automatically encrypt emails to a list of addresses or domains. To ensure that emails to certain recipients are encrypted in this way without the user having to select it using the Outlook plugin.

                          • Allow sending of the transactional email via Mandrill or other Email Service Provider

                            Two reasons: 1) Outbound emails are sent out into the interwebs and we have no idea if they actually where delivered and/or open. It's important to me to know if my customers get their emails from the UTM. EMail service providers help bridge that gap. I realize that the need is likely counter to current thought, but many of my customers are using cloud based email services and there are more potential issues that could prevent delivery of the UTM emails. 2) Not all of my customers use "business grade" internet links because they really don't need them and often…

                              iOS users are unable to forward email messages as attachments to the is-spam address for submission. How about if the mail log had a set of options for messages to be submitted as spam or retrieved for delivery to the inbox when improperly removed as spam?

                                • IPsec connection over secondary interface IP

                                  On Sophos, when we configure a VPNIPsec connection we have only the option to select interface, and it always use the primary IP. I suggest to have a way to use the secondary IP of an interface for the IPsec connection, for when the link provides more than one valid IP address.

                                  • No beef-dead-beef test packets on RED LAN Ports

                                    beef-dead-beef Packets are sent to test if the WAN tunnel has built up correctly. So in my opinion it is just necessary to broadcast them on the WAN port of a RED. We had an issue with these packets on the LAN ports on a RED which we have fixed through an workaround (we blocked beef-dead-beef on a switch).
