  1. Mail Protection: Quarantine report to single central mail address

    Present situation (V.8) is that only the corresponding e-mail address is getting his "Spam Reports" . But for central administration it would be nice to have an option, to send ALL e-mail spam or quarantine reports to one central e-mail address instead of having many recipients.

    • Block some and alert on others

      Currently you can block or you can detect but allow to run (alert) but you cannot do one for some categories and the other for other categories. Customer would like to block something like voip but alert only on instant messengers.

      • WebAdmin: Limit UserPortal Choices Per-User

        Disable the user-portal items on a per-user base.
        EG. Reception should issue the vouchers for the guests and nothing more but she gets items she doesn't need .HTML5-VPN (with no connections), password change, HTTPS Certificate.

        It would be nice to disable user-portal features for her but not for all, so she only gets the Hotspot Tab!

        • Wireless: External Radius authentication for Hotspot

          We would love the ability for forwarding Hotspot authentication to an External Radius server.

          At present we have to use Mikrotik routers to accomplish this and having the entire solution on the Astaro would be much more efficient.

          Complete customisation of the Hotspot Login page would also be great.

          • MacOS user grouping support for authentication

            Unfortunately after a lot of work with Astaro a while back it was found that MacOS Server does not push the memberOf attribute back in replies rendering Astaro User Grouping useless so what I'm suggesting is as follows.

            Under Authentication servers, allow for either a LDAP Browser or LDAP Field to be specified for the group ID and have Astaro cache the User IDs within that group and re-poll it once an hour or so that way user with a specific ID hits the proxy with the right credentials Astaro will see that ID in the group and let it…

              • UTM Endpoint Protection: Limit visibility and use of UTM EPP Client Features

                Users are (too often) clicking everywhere and I like when we can block ALL the possibilities to change something. I see that exclusions, quarantine manager rights and SMTP alerts can ben configured on the user side ? Am I having that possibility because the package has been installated with an admin account (the user is a local administrator on that machine) ?

                      • RED: Hardware USB Security Dongle

                        Dongle support for RED, which allows you to place a special file on a USB drive (generated by the ASG) which will only open the tunnel only in case the dongle is plugged in the USB port; so the RED can be left at the location without risking invaders.

                        If you want to physically restrict access to the RED (such as going home) you bring the dongle with you.

                        • Reporting: Flow Monitor 2.0

                          In the Flow Monitor, it would be nice to be able to click on a Host/Client, and list all of their connected Host/Clients, ports that they are using, and bandwidth used for each of those. Currently The Flow Monitor only list total traffic used by a Client/Host, but for more information the text logs have to be searched.

                          It would also nice to be able to have fine grain control of that traffic (throttle and blocking) in real-time from inside the flow monitor. Options like Temporary blocks, or data caps, would all be bonus too.

It is a kind of Remote Desktop protocol. Also, support for more Remote Desktop types would be cool, like *NX, and XDMCP.

                                  • AstaroOS: Support intermediate CAs

                                    in Webadmin, Userportal and Web Application Security.
                                    The intermediate CAs will not be sent by the UTM to the client, so the CA path is broken and then some Browsers will not accept the cert.

                                    • Mail Protection: Blackhole messages for Expressions and Blacklist entries

                                      I would like a black hole option for expressions or entries on the sender blacklist since that's confirmed spam to me and don't need to have it appearing on the quarantine report.

                                      • One click submission for samples

                                        Would like to have the ability to submit samples from the Endpoint/Quarantine by click on a button. Would assist with cleanup problems and FP.

                                        • Web Protection: Scan ahead for links

                                          Scans the url's in a search engine and advises the user if they can get to the site or not, it saves a lot of time clicking on links to find they dont work.
