  1. Allow sending of the transactional email via Mandrill or other Email Service Provider

    Two reasons: 1) Outbound emails are sent out into the interwebs and we have no idea if they actually where delivered and/or open. It's important to me to know if my customers get their emails from the UTM. EMail service providers help bridge that gap. I realize that the need is likely counter to current thought, but many of my customers are using cloud based email services and there are more potential issues that could prevent delivery of the UTM emails. 2) Not all of my customers use "business grade" internet links because they really don't need them and often…

    • Provide Mobile email users ability to submit spam messages. The iOS is unable to forward email as attachment - is there another option?

      iOS users are unable to forward email messages as attachments to the is-spam address for submission. How about if the mail log had a set of options for messages to be submitted as spam or retrieved for delivery to the inbox when improperly removed as spam?

        • IPsec connection over secondary interface IP

          On Sophos, when we configure a VPNIPsec connection we have only the option to select interface, and it always use the primary IP. I suggest to have a way to use the secondary IP of an interface for the IPsec connection, for when the link provides more than one valid IP address.

          • No beef-dead-beef test packets on RED LAN Ports

            beef-dead-beef Packets are sent to test if the WAN tunnel has built up correctly. So in my opinion it is just necessary to broadcast them on the WAN port of a RED. We had an issue with these packets on the LAN ports on a RED which we have fixed through an workaround (we blocked beef-dead-beef on a switch).

                    • For the Sophos UTM, Endpoint Protection

                      Under Endpoint Protection > Antivirus > Exceptions

                      When selecting the exception type for "Adware and PUA"
                      It asks for the "File Name:"

                      Can this be changed just to say "Adware/PUA Name" or "Detection Name" ?

                      As this can be misleading and appear to create exceptions based on the file name itself, rather than the detection name our labs use.
                      Eg; adding PsExec will only exclude files that can be called anything at all, but are detected as the PsExec PUA - so other files called PsExec aren't effected. If the customer renames any PUA files and tries to exclude them…

                      • Would like to exclude forwarded emails with .icap (In-Copy files) attachments

                        We have a rule that redirects all archive emails to our Helpdesk for analysis, but it redirects emails with an attachment of .icap (In-Copy files) and we would like to exclude this type of email from being redirected.

                        • LAN link Monitoring similar to Uplink Monitoring

                          I want the UTM to monitor a Lan link and take action if It detect a failure in this link , similar to the ones already exists for Uplinks.
                          In other word , to separate the Monitoring function from the uplinks , so I can choose which links I need to monitor, perhaps uplinks, may be LAN links in sometimes, then take appropriate actions according to.

                            • Additional variable for use with the voucher PDF template

                              You really improved the customization of the Hotspot vouchers! Great Job! But I was missing a variable. We use the captive portal providing our guests easy internet access. So when creating a voucher in the user portal, we decided to put the guests Company and Name in the "comment" field. It would be very helpful if you could provide this field as a variable in the voucher template as well, so the vouchers are more personalized!

                              Thanks for that!
                              Best from Germany,

                                • DHCP Relay Load Balancing

                                  The DHCP relay feature allows the use of an availability group which can have one or more DHCP servers defined. The issue is the second server listed would never get a request unless the first one fails.

                                  Starting with Windows 2012 R2 the DHCP service supports failover/load balanced scopes without the need for complex clustering technologies. Basically the servers have a copy of the scope each and have a defined percentage which they can issue. Plus they monitor each other for taking over the scope if the partner was to fail.

                                  Now we would like to use the load balancing…

                                  • Support for MTP (android devices) data copying

                                    Sophos currently do not support MTP devices connected to machines using any Safeguard product (support call 4077876). This means that a user can connect a Samsung S4, and copy files to it unencrypted. There is an app available, but these are not company phones and other than using Sophos AV (which we do not), users are not going to install the APP and can copy files unencrypted

                                    • AP10 compatible for Mesh Networks

                                      Actually only the AP50 can be setup for mesh networks but most of home users and customers use the AP10 e.g. in smaller offices. It should be possible to make the AP10 available for the mesh network.

                                      • Use Auth Agent for Endpoint Web Protection

                                        Use Auth Agent to verify user instead of just AD. If you are away from home, in a coffee shop or something have the agent cache the login like Windows does for active directory accounts when they are not on the network. Then just allow the endpoint to verify against the agent even if its using a cache login from the last time the computer is on the network.

                                        • Adding mlvpn support

                                          The idea is to give a better bandwith to utm user who have 2 operator and a litte machine in a Datacenter.
                                          At this time I was able to create my mlvpn tunnel on the sophos utm9.2, who work in tun mode and not in tap mode. But it wasn't seen by the UTM interface...
