    • SEA missing feature of customizing banner fonts/colors etc

      Have the
      ability to individually edit the banner in HTML and Plain Text portions
      will allow correctly formatted banners in HTML without adding HTML tags
      to the plain text version of the emails. Marketing in the US business use
      this feature in old mail gateway solution (Mail Marshal) to autoreply with
      marketing material in correct HTML format in a banner - or with just some
      basic info and a url link in the plain text version - ie 2 different banners
      one based on HTML, one Plain Text all in the single email.

        • DNSCurve

          DNSCurve is a recent DNS extension proposal that is fully backwards compatible with the existing DNS protocol, uses much stronger cryptography than DNSSEC, and most importantly, is much simpler and much easier to implement and manage. The most significant technical distinction is that DNSSEC uses large and slow per-recordset signatures while DNSCurve uses small and fast per-packet encryption and authentication.

          OpenDNS has started to use DNSCurve as a good example. I personally believe that DNSCurve should be implemented into the UTM. Would be a much better alternative than DNSSEC in my very honest opinion.

            • WebServer Protection: Allow for larger upload handling

              For web sites with larger uploads (e.g. ownCloud) there is currently a 128MB (134217728 byte) limit in Web Server protection, the so called request body limit in ModSecurity.
              Please add the possibility to configure this parameter (it's "SecRequestBodyLimit" in the Apache config) to allow larger uploads to sites protected by WAF.

              • to extend the SMTP Log

                I want to know, which admin deleted an E-Mail.
                In the SMTP Log I can only read "Deleted (Deleted from quarantine by user/admin)", but I need to know which admin deleted the Mail. Is it possible to log this information?

                • DHCP MAC Address filter

                  in the wireless section we are able to restrict connections via mac address filter.
                  in the dhcp section you can only restrict access via static mac bindings, so you have to map mac:ip 1:1 and waste precious ips. What would be of great help is to allow gaining an ip via dhcp only when recognized in a mac address filter.

                  see http://www.astaro.org/gateway-products/management-networking-logging-reporting/48152-dhcp-mac-filter.html

                  only one checkbox is missing in the gui ;-)

                  • Filtered computers get mapped public IP when browsing, rather than default IP of UTM internet interface.

                    Filtered computers get mapped public IP when browsing, rather than default IP of UTM internet interface. Currently, filtered machines always get the public IP of the UTM internet interface right now. Only unfiltered machine actually get the public IP NAT'd to them.

                    • Provide more granularity as to which options users see in the User Portal

                      Configuration of User Portal options by function AND by user or group (and perhaps even by network or domain) would provide more granular control over what each particular user or group of users is able to see/access.

                      Unless I'm mistaken, the portal options settings apply to and display for all users.... sort of an all or none situation. However, there are times where certain users just need access to a few portal options. Displaying additional options can be confusing to the user and can - at times - create a problem for IT and /or policy makers.

                        • Add an option for timed reboot/shutdown

                          Sometimes a customer calls because they need the UTM shutdown before the city turns of electricity or something. Or some kind of problem requires are reboot, but as Internet works nobody wants to reboot "now", but rather after office hours.
                          It would be great to be able to time this.

                                • allow us to configure a maximum number of outgoing mails per day per email address

                                  To prevent spam runs, it would be great to be able to set default mail quota: for example allow 1000 outgoing mails a day. If you go over that, your would temp be blocked, and an admin alert would be generated.
                                  That way we could allow it, or find out what is wrong with the user account.

                                  • Network Usage Email Notifications

                                    It would be useful for users who are faced with monthly usage limits (via ISP) to receive alerts when traffic quotas approach or reach a certain threshold.

                                    For instance, if a monthly quota is 500GB, an alert could be set up to fire on 95% of this, causing an email alert to send at 475GB.

                                    The current usage should also be configurable to reset at a certain interval (day of month, number of weeks/months, etc.).

                                    • SMTP IPV6 Outbound support

                                      If UTM has IPv6 enabled, mail should also be delivered via IPv6 to the remove MX hosts. Currently IPv4 is prefered over IPv6.

                                      The solution is already posted in the forum:

                                      http://www.astaro.org/gateway-products/mail-protection-smtp-pop3-antispam-antivirus/45573-9-004-34-email-protection-6to4-support-outbound.html#post228431

                                      The only one more thing needed, is on option in the GUI to enable/disable IPv6 outbound support for MX deliveries, for those who can not set IPv6 PTR record.

                                      • change this page so that it no longer implies it is just for Astaro feature requests

                                        My idea is, to make it clearer for customers when they raise a feature request that this page does not give the impression that it is for Astaro issues only. Remove the part of the title that says "UTM (Formally ASG)" so that it only shows "Feature Requests"

                                        • Network Protection: Use Suricata for IPS

                                          I think it could be worth a look at, unless Snort comes up with a multfhreaded version.
