  1. Support IPv6 on wan interface of the RED

    Really usefull that the "wan" interface of the RED device can get an IPv6
    more small telcos goes to that scenario of deployment (IPv6) and they would use red behind their POE
    so tunnel between REd-Device and SophosUTM in IPv6

      • Management: Wake-on-LAN (WoL) Support

        Lots of use cases where the UTM could send WoL commands. Such as to HTML5 VPN targets which are powered off.

        Basicaly in the preferences we could set the destination server MAC Address to use for the wake on lan command... and have a small waiting message/progress bar until the target server is booted.

          • Wireless / AP debugging tools

            It would be very beneficial to have some diagnostic tools that can be used either from the UTM or seperately in order to obtain status information from the AP's regarding, current usage, load etc.

            • Add a built in DNS server. I find it crazy that there is a built in DHCP server without a DNS server.

              Full DNS server which is automatically updated by the built in DHCP server. I can't believe that this hasn't already been added.

                • Wireless Protection: Site Monitoring Tool

                    • Separate permissions for wpad

                      Users can be required to actually use a different proxy than the one from which they download the PAC file - e.g. for users that are travelling.
                      Having an easy permission model like for Web filtering and FTP would be useful to allow users to download the PAC from a preconfigured proxy. This PAC evaluates the soure IP and sends the actual web traffic to a closer proxy server.

                      • Web Protection: Show Active Users on Dashboard

                        It would be great if the UTM could show a list of active users connected to the HTTP Proxy.

                        • Virtual MAC Adress on Ethernet-VLAN Interface

                          it's certainly a good idea if you can change the MAC addresses for Ethernet-VALN Interfaces.

                          In our scenario, we have many WAN uplinks that we connect via Ethernet VLAN interfaces. The WAN uplinks may not be crosslinked. But we need all Links on one Astaro so we must use VLAN Interfaces and any uplink need to be connect to an inteface with an different MAC address.

                          • HTTPS Scanning: Have proxy provide certificate chain when using intermediate CA cert for HTTP-CA.

                            Many large organizations already have an internal CA used for certificate signing. This CA is already deployed to all of the client systems and browsers.

                            When implementing the HTTPS scanning, it requires another CA be deployed to on the Astaro which then has to be deployed to the hundreds or thousands of clients. It would be better to, instead, create an intermediate CA certificate from the Root CA and use that on the Astaro since the clients already trust the Root CA.

                            For this to work, I believe that the Astaro needs to provide not just the forged site certificate…

                                      • Mail Protection: Deferred/Spooled message notification and management

                                        For outgoing mials it would be nice to have options to setup:
                                        -how long (time) the utm tries to deliver mails in SMTP-Spool
                                        -after which periods the utm send notifications about spooled mails to the sender

                                        • Layer 7 QofS Functionality

                                          I would like to request the addition of layer 7 QofS functionality.

                                          It would be useful to limit or restrict the amount of bandwidth specific services use. For example, limit the amount of bandwidth usable by something like World of Warcraft to be no more than 1Mb (or perhaps 5%) of our bandwidth.
