  1. Recover blocked email

    We have used Barracuda spam filtering in the past and had the ability to deliver mail from it if a message was blocked by the filter. It would be nice if I could do the same from UTM 9.

    • Web Protection: Allow blocking Flash/ActiveX/Java Separately

      Especially Flash is mostly used by many internet pages, but we want to block Java, due to the security issues!

      In Version 9, you can only choose the three methods together.

      • Authentication: Allow nested group membership

        We would like group nesting to be possible for SSL VPN users.

        We added a VPNgroup in the "webadmin --> Remote Access --> SSL-> global --> users and groups" and would like to add that VPNgroup to a group OfficeUsersGroup, but is seems it only works if the users are added to the VPNgroup.

        • Networking: Live monitoring of QoS rules

          It can be difficult to tune the QoS rules effectively unless there is greater visibility on how they are influencing traffic. The live traffic monitor is very handy, and it would be even better if we knew how the QoS rules we put in place are actually operating on the live connections. Perhaps give us the ability to monitor bandwidth, shaping and throttling on a per QoS rule basis.

          This is more of an issue with highly contended SOHO & Mum/Dad ADSL internet connections, where throughput guarantees are not applicable when compared to genuine business class internet connections, but it…

            • RED: Uplink and UMTS/3G Signal Status

              It would be great to know the status of the internet connection uplink(s) in use on our RED sites. Especially with the 3G/UMTS option, perhaps a way could be found to display the signal strength as well for extra benefits?

              • Display time of last contact in EP overwiew

                It would be helpful if we have some more information for online-status of EP-Clients.

                Not only online/offline, I would prefer "offline, last seen x-days y-hours ago".

                So we can separate between clients which have a general communication problem and clients which are functional but temporarily offline for some hours e.g. for lunch or recharging ;-)

                • Authentication: Use Wireless Credentials for other UTM modules

                  Passing the authentication credentials from 802.1X WPAx enterprise authentication to other UTM modules would enable seamless SSO for wirelessly connected devices and would be particularly useful for authentication of mobile devices.

                    Looking to replace Ipswitch what's up gold with UTM for network monitoring. Ability to monitor internal switches, servers, etc for icmp ping requests and notifications via email if the IP address monitored is up or down. Notification is sent when IP address is not reachable for 5 minutes, and notification is sent when IP address is reachable if it was in status down.

                        In an UTM v9 active/active Cluster we have many “ha_sync” entries on the “Last WebAdmin sessions” under Management. Every SSLVPN user logon an logoff are logged (change on IP-Address in User object) here. The “ha_sync” entries should filter out (as an option or globally).

                        • Country Blocking in all modules

                          It would be great if you can use countries as source in all modules. What I mean is to be able to proof that for example the WebAdmin is just reachable for some countries. All other modules should also be able to restrict access from countries you don't want traffic from.

                              Current access to the user portal can be configured either to specific interface and port or to all interfaces for a given port. I have a number of external public ip addresses, several of which already use port 443 for https. I could like to configure the user portal so users can connect to it (on port 443) using the internal interface and using one of the external interfaces (also on port 443) for when they are out of the office. Currrently there does not seem to be a way to do this, since I cannot use the "Any" interface…

                                      • Sophos 24/48 port switch (with poe options)

                                        Please think about making a 24/48 port witch that has some integration into the utm box (Similar to the ap30) that would give me stats on my network and allow me to troubleshoot admin from one login.
