  1. 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.

          • It would be good if the ability to select "send an encrypted copy to me" was included in the SPX reply email. I understand this feature is a

            An option within the UTM9 GUI to view a list of those recipients of emails who have registered via the SPX portal.

            • 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…

                  • XG: Web and Application Policy per User or Group (Identity based)

                    It is good for the end users who are using Identity based where in they can apply web and application policy per user or group since from the current firmware, you can only apply policy thru firewall. It is hassle if you have 10 users who have different policy, then i will need to create 10 firewall rule just to separate the users.
                    I Hope it will come.

                      • Server hostname - possibility to change the name

                        Hi, we need to have the possibility to change the name of servers. Today in fact every server have only the hostnames and is very difficult to know which customers corresponds to server.

                        Is it possibile to have this upgrade?

                        Thanks

                          In the search area, it would help to find a Rule, if we can filter from Source net to Destination net.

                            • Add more scheduling options for firmware updates.

                              We manage hundreds of VFW's in our environment and cannot take the risk of running firmware updates weekly on all of them. Some are also global, so we may need to do them at different time schedules. It would be great if we could schedule them Monthly rather than weekly. Adding flexibility.

                                • show flexiport in the UTM graphic representation

                                  When I install a flexiport extension, I can see the new interfaces in a list, but the picture of the UTM is not updated with the flexiport that has been installed and the status of its ports.

                                  This improvement is only cosmetic, as it does not affect to normal function of the UTM, but I think it is important. It will make it clearer to customers and network administrators as they will see all the ports status in a single view.

                                  • Failover for UTM to UTM RED Tunnel

                                    When configuring a RED 50, we have the option to provide a secondary IP to the Server UTM in the event the primary IP on the Server end goes down. However, when configuring two UTMs to connect via RED Tunnel, there is no option on the Client UTM to configure a secondary IP to the Server UTM. It is really a critical feature needed for failover and would eliminate the need to create two RED Tunnels for each device connected. Why not port that feature from the RED 50 to the UTM?

                                      • Ability to create sub accounts with different permission levels

                                        I would like the ability to create sub accounts with different permission levels. For example, you can have account 1 able to unblock/whitelist and account 2 can perform updates etc. This would be great as you won't need to give out the admin password and no user will see or do anything they are not supposed to on the webadmin interface.

                                        • SSL VPN: Support IPv6

                                          Currently SSL VPN only pushes IPv4 configuration to the client. With some manual editing under the hood you can add IPv6 in the config files.

                                          I'd like to have this feature by default using the GUI!
