  1. Web Protection: Override Multiple Sites

    Webfilter override facility. We need to be able to (in addition to a single website for a pre-determined length of time) override all website blocks for a user-defined length of time – a time length that they can choose. An additional button is required on the block page for this facility, for those allowed. Urgent request.

    • Networking: Use Listbox Widget for DNS Domains in DNS Request Routing

      Allow for multiple domains per set of DNS servers.

      As it is now i mostly add some internal domains to it and say which DNS servers it needs to use for it as also the in-addr.arpa zones. Now i need to make a new set for every domain which is very tiresome and unnecessary if i could just say use these DNS servers for these domainS.

        • Set IP Address manually to Access Point

          It would be great, if i can set the IP Address to Access Points manually and not via DHCP.

          • Show the status of reservation in DHCP

            There should be a status window, stating the amount of available ips in scope, the amount of ips used and the total amount.

                • Mail Manager Add An option to to delete ALL Mails from a given filter String.

                  The ideia is to delete all email from a given string, no listing, no boundaries. Just delete all. I came out with 2 million mails on spool due to internal SPAM
                  problem.

                  • Wireless / WLAN Deployment helper (wizard)

                    As the configuration of a wireless network and the subsequent options for DNS, DHCP, packet filter, etc. is quite complicated, I'd love to have some kind of a wizard or deployment helper (like for RED) to ease the configuration.

                      Can you create a new application control for iHeart radio streaming? Cannot block access via group DNS entry as users cannot get to some legitimate sites.

                      • Web Application Security: Block access to specific URLs

                        Right now i'm trying to use the Astaro WAS for a setup, where we normally would use a linux server with apache configured as reverse proxy.
                        In this constellation we could block the access on some URLs from the outside via simple "Order deny" directives on the reverse proxy.
                        As far as i can see there's no similar option on the Astaro.
                        The URL Hardening feature is no option for us here, as you can do only whitelisting with that.

                                • RED: Support Backup Hostname for RED Connection

                                  Currently, REDs and ASG must find and connect through the definition of a single host-name that is fully resolvable in the public. While this can use the DynDNS feature in ASG already for "fail over", it might be more simpler to just offer another host-name field to be used in the event RED looses connection to the main host-name?

                                  Even with multiple WAN links avaialable to an ASG, the REDs use of just a single hostname poses a problem if that particular WAN link or ISP should drop for a time (e.g. fiber cut, dead modem, etc). The downed REDs…

                                    • Management: Unify Static DNS / DHCP mappings to Object Definitions

                                      Use the same data for DNS static entries as for Network host definitions.
                                      Like this we would not need to enter the same data twice.

                                      • Wireless: Reboot / Restart of Access Points

                                        Ability to restart a connected wireless access point from the ASG web interface. Sometimes I find they are not working corrected and need to be rebooted/restart/powercycled. It would be nice if this could be done remotely, right from the web interface.

                                        • Mail Protection: Outlook Plugin for reporting SPAM

                                          How about creating a plug-in for Outlook so that the user has a button labelled "Report spam" so that the email that they have open at the time is then forwarded on to your labs with all the information that you require and minimal input from the user.
