    • QoS for Virtual Webservers

      QoS / Throttling the upload for virtual webservers (Web Server Protection). It would be nice if you have many webservers, that you can throttle the upload for each "virtual server"

      exampe: - virtual webserver a (wan) unlimited upload to wan side
      - virtual webserver b (wan) limited upload 10mbit to wan side

      that would be realy nice, is it possible?

      • DHCP/WiFi: enable transfer of connected wireless clients or DHCP leases to MAC address white/black-lists

        When setting up a new WiFi it can be quite a hurdle to enter every clients MAC address manually. This process is also very error prone.

        It would be way easier to connect all clients without MAC filter, create a MAC address list from all connected clients and then restrict WiFi access to that list.
        The same would also be nice for the DHCP leases list.

        • Virtual Webserver - Wildcard SSL Import Domains

          When using a wildcard SSL certificate, I would like the ability to import a list of domains on a virtual webserver. This is possible on a HTTP virtual webserver, but not when on the HTTPS one. We have a wildcard web development environment and have multiple servers with 50+ sub-domains on each server. Currenlty, we have to manually enter every single domain since the import functionality is not on the HTTPS virtual servers.

          • Failover SXL lookups to Smart Filter Cache

            SXL lookups regularly fail due to issues with the the Sophos service, the virtual host the service is running on or simply just networking issues local to the UTM.

            As the technology already exists to use an offline file then why not simply have an SXL fail over to the local categories. For example, if there was no response to an SXL lookup in 15 seconds failover to the local cache for the next 5 min.

            This way there should never be any downtime in the service which either leaves a customer unable to browse the web or allows a…

            • Autonomous quota consumption (no user confirmation)

              The new quota feature works great, but there is a big problem using quota on mobile devices. Having a media streaming quota configured you have to open a web browser and confirm the amount of time (quota) you want to use. That works fine on desktop, but on mobile IOS devices such requests in a browser gets redirect to a installed APP (You Tube) and you never have the chance to confirm the quota you want to use - as a consequence YouTube app does not have internet connectivity.

              • Google Domains Dynamic DNS

                Google Domains includes support for dynamic DNS (see https://support.google.com/domains/answer/6147083) which uses the dyndns2 protocol. It would be useful to have Google Domains as an option within the UTM's list of dynamic DNS providers.

                          • Add ability to edit and import a HOSTS file

                            The feature is available on many home routers, but seems to be missing from the UTM which now controls both my work and home networks.

                            It is really nice to be able to import a hosts file such as the one referred to here:
                            http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.htm

                            This allows all attached devices to be able to block various ads and other malicious content really easily. In implementation, it would be nice to be able to either cut and past the desired hosts file into a textbox or perhaps to import a new hosts file. Perhaps the user modified one would be a…

                              • Conncurrent Connections per Host

                                Currently, Sophos UTM allows you to see Concurrent Connections on the Dashboard, Interfaces & Routing page as well as Logging & Reporting --> Network Usage --> Bandwidth Usage for a Total Connection usage count.

                                It would be useful to illustrate a real time breakdown for which Hosts are occupying said Concurrent Connections. I've been able to track TCP Connections via ip_conntrack, however, I'm sure the Sophos UTM has a cleaner approach that could be used to isolate connections at the IP level.

                                      When a recipient receives an SPX encrypted e-mail with inline photos the photos do not appear in the PDF file and are instead attachments inside the PDF. Why not render the e-mail with the photos exactly as it would look if it were received in an e-mail client. We have a customer who has a great deal of difficulty explaining to the recipients how to retrieve the pictures that are attached inside the PDF especially those who use smartphones or tablets to receive the SPX PDF. If they could just open the PDF and see what they need to see…

                                      • When creating firewall rules they should be enabled instantly

                                        Why don't newly created firewall rules activate automatically? Invariably I forget to go to the end of the list and switch the rule to on after I create it. At least take me to the end of the list after it is created if you can't default them to on. I'm not creating a new rule just so it can sit there disabled, why would it default that way?

                                        • RED-Device with PoE on LAN-Port

                                          One LAN-connection to the RED-Device should be supplied with PoE to supply a VoIP phone with voltage.
