  1. Admin rights on web admin page to forcefully logout a user

    It would be very useful if admins could force individual users to be logged out from the web appliance. This would help in cases where the authentication timeout is very long and the user has closed the captive portal window that allows them to log out.

    • Mailhandling / Quarantine

      Hi! I know that "mails" are just a part of the UTM, but the way it is solved now, no one really can use it.

      1) Quarantine reports are always written "in the same language" as the admin panel. Since all manual found in the internet are in english i think 95% of all users use the admin panel in english language. For admins this is usually no problem. But that differs with the "end user". The end users usually need their "native" language. So why is there no possibility to set up "a different report language". U can set…

            • Please allow the SUM to create IPSEC PSK tunnels instead of just RSA.

              From the SUM I would like to be able to configure IPSEC tunnels with PSK instead of RSA.

              • make it easy to post proxy.pac files on the management server. Upload the file, server spits out a URL, and give that URL out to our users.

                In regards to Sophos Web appliance/proxy, it would be very convenient if we could generate a pac file, upload it to the Sophos management appliance server, have it spit out a URL that we can give to our users. This would simplify the process and allow us to not have to rely on another server to host our pac file.

                • Allow referer links from trusted web sites without need to allow all advertisment web sites

                  We have a corporate perks web site, and for some perks it redirects via Doubleclick and other such sites - unfortunately we block "Advertisements & Pop-ups" (which includes this doubleclick domain) and so the user is blocked from reaching the end page.

                  Could an option be added so that the HTTP referer header is checked - and if that is on the trusted list, allow access.

                  This would allow us to say that links from our Corporate Perks page are allowed, but still block all other accesses to doubleclick referers etc.

                  • Allow FULL control of DHCP option types

                    Many of the current DHCP options are needlessly restricted and limited to a particular type, for example: 125 is HEX and 66 is TEXT. Some systems that use these options require a different value type. In the case of option 125, Mitel phone systems require this as a string.

                    We should stop restricting the DHCP option type and instead default to the expected value but allow users to configure this as per their network requirements.

                    • SSL VPN

                      We recently migrated Sophos OS from cyberoam OS.

                      We have two internet connections from two different ISPs. One of the connection is our primary connection and other one is our secondary connection.
                      whenever someone dials the SSL VPN connection it is actually getting connected to our backup connection (our backup connection is of slow speed)

                      We would like have our SSL VPN users to get connected to our primary WAN connection instead of secondary.

                      This feature is currently not there is current version of sophos os firewall.

                      Also raised support request for the same, service request number 1050587.

                      • Create an option to allow NON standard ports for specific websites

                        We have a lot of customers using NON standard ports for specific websites. The only (working) option is to add a service port to the Allowed Target Servives. It would be preferable to be able to add the specific exeption (portnumber) only for the specific URL, instead of an global exeption for those ports.

                          • Allow for character sets to be blocked in email Ex chinese character sets, Russian Cirillic font.

                            Many North American companies will have no dealings with Chinese vendors/manufacturers or those in Russia. There should be an option (like there is for Barracuda Networks' SPAM firewalls, to block these character sets.

                            • Allow smtp expressions to filter on complete message including header

                              I added this as a new feature request since several others were quite old. We need this to filter out bulk mail with the UTM running 9.4. I need this to be able to stop quite a bit of bulk email. I find most bulk email contains the word bounce with either [-_@+] after it ... sometimes bounces[-_@+] which could be done with expression bounce[^ ] and bounces[^ ]. In that case most of the bulk mail would be quarantined and a person could always whitelist a domain if they wanted to receive. The expression would just have to scan…

                              • Expire date for firewall rules

                                Firewall rules should have an optional expiry date. This is useful, if a firewall rule has only been approved for a certain period of time.

                                With this feature the firewall admin no longer needs to schedule in a separate calendar the removal of a temporary rule and then perform a manual task.

                                This results in a cleaner ruleset and less effort for the firewall admin.

                                • Data Disk over size % warning should be a setting

                                  When the Data Disk reaches 75% in size, continuous warnings are emailed saying "[INFO-154] Data Disk is filling up - please check". This % is encoded in the OS and cannot be changed. Log Partition settings allow the Log old logs to be deleted automatically. There should also be a similar control panel setting for the Data Partition please.

                                    • UTM Webproxy must log downloaded files before malware scan as they are currently not logged and accounted if not retrieved by user

                                      The UTM Proxy currently logs big downloaded files only after a user retrieved it by pressing the download button after malware scanning. Not retrieved downloaded files are neither logged nor accounted in the daily report. This falsifies the accounting especially when software tries to automatically download big files but cannot deal with the download button. One can searched for months for such a ghost, as no trace is available.

                                      • Make Quarantine Report responsive

                                        I would very much like to be able to review and process quarantine reports on my mobile device.

                                        The current format requires lots of zooming and panning on a mobile device...

                                        • Quarantine Report to show better information (From sender)

                                          Currently the quarantine for both XG and SG units records and shows the mail header field 'RETURN TO' as the FROM address in quarantine and mail log screen. In many cases, this makes the interpritation of those emails impossible prior to releasing to the mail client.

                                          For example... a LOT of bulk mail (even if coming from a known vendor) now included information to see if an address is valid. They add inforation to the RETURN TO field such as 'bounce-20_html-12235547.....' and may or may not have the actual FROM address included. This makes a VERY long and frankly useless…
