  1. Check pattern version on Endpoints from the UTM's console

    The information about the Endpoints is very limited on the UTM's console and coupled with the lack of transparency in the update process when the UTM is set to force caching of the Endpoint updates (or not) I would like to be able to see how up to date the clients are.

    • allow multi-language templates for error messages

      It would be really nice if error messages could be defined in various languages. This would be nice for non-english speakers. Currently we have to add several languages into one field which clutters the display of the user and may confuse them as well.

      It would also be nice to enable the templates to detect the client-language

      • SUM: add "Bind Tunnel to Local Interface" option

        UTM 9.1 supports "Bind Tunnel to Local Interface" option, but SUM 4.1 does not support it. It's better to add it. :)

        • Add Country blocking logging to the Mail Manager Log

          On the Mail Manager Log we currently see blocking for RDNS/HELO (RDNS missing) and others that are showing us why an email is being blocked but not if that country was added to the Country block list.

          This is really needed to quickly solve email issues related to Country Blocking.

            • RED: Allow RED50 to detect UTM state via WAN1 without a RED VPN tunnel

              Many customers are moving their technology stack to the data centre with a UTM located at the data centre, and are implementing 50-100Mbps L2 access from their site to the data centre. They need an on-premises RED50 to allow native L2 traffic through the fibre (WAN1) so there is no dependency on the UTM, and they need to be able to failover on WAN2 ( connected to a wireless 4G modem) and setup a RED VPN tunnel to the UTM over the Internet. Hence the RED50 needs to be able to detect the UTM state via WAN1 without a RED…

              • allow Uplink Monitoring groups and monitoring of tunnels with uplink monitoring

                I think it would be great if one was able to group uplink monitoring interfaces.
                This goes along with my request to be able to enable per IPsec-Tunnel to be monitored with uplink monitoring as well.

                Designated goal: Monitor physical uplinks (and be able to define actions for that) as well as critical tunnels (to the headquarters).
                If a certain tunnel goes down certain actions might be taken.
                e.g. enable a backup tunnel or enable DHCP server for local breakout clients (See my other feature request)

                    • Different SMTP name for Different IPs

                      .so you can have mail01.domain.com and mail02.domain.com to use for HELO.

                        • UTM: Add support for RDP with Network Level Authentication

                          It seems Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) with Network Level Authentication (NLA), on systems running Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Server 2008 R2, etc. is not currently supported on UTM. It will be a great benefit for corporate and/or government customers to add NLA support for RDP.

                          • Cleanup User and Groups

                            It would be nice, if you integrate a function which Cleanup the User & Groups Database or a bidirectional synchronization between Active Directory and ASG.
                            There is no automatically deletion after deleting a User in Active Directory.
                            That's why there are old users in these database which left the Company more years before.

                                There isn't an option to delay any notification for a few minutes, when internet or another interface is going down. I have a lot of email notifications about interface is down and up again. The Messages have only a timeframe from one or two minutes.

                                I only want notifications, when the Interface is down more than two minutes.

                                      • Server Load Balancing: Enable/Disable/Weight Real Servers via an API/Special HTTP Response Code for automatic Deployments

                                        We often deploy new Configurations and Software to our real servers behind about 15 SLBs. By now we always have to login to WebUI to manually rebalance the Real Servers we wan to maintain, and rebalance them back for the second half of a SLBs Real Servers.
                                        It would be nice to have an SSL+Login API to do it automatically using something like Capistrano or even a predefined per-SLB HTTP Response Code, the SLB knows to rebalance to 0 for specific Servers.

                                        • search or refine for DNAT or SNAT or FullNAT

                                          On the NAT page in 9.005, there is no way to display only the SNATs (or DNATs or FullNATs)... entering 'SNAT' into the search box in a blank result.
                                          Please add a dropdown or add these terms to the searched words.
