  1. TLS (SSL) Encrypting remote syslog

    Hi please implement TLS (SSL) Encrypting for remote syslog.
    It is an important feature to send encrypted syslog messages to the remote syslog server: http://www.rsyslog.com/doc/rsyslog_tls.html
    A Cisco ASA, Synology NAS and Linux supports this feature. Please implement this also into your great UTM Firewall !!

    • 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,
      Markus Kreissl

      • Leave out the "unit name" like "hours", "days" etc. from the voucher variables

        Hi, once again: great Job with improving the customization of the PDF vouchers in the hotspot section. But I wonder why you included the "unit names" with the variables, e.g. Valid for "1 day" or like we have it with german language Settings "1 Tag". This makes it difficult to create a multilingual voucher Definition. The fact we run the user portal in german does not mean, we do not have voucher users from abroad, but they will always get the german "unit names" for "hour, day" etc. I would appreciate the "unit names" being left out from the variables,…

            • SMNTP

              Hi-- I'm using Zabbix to monitor my environment-- including Sophos UTM where possible.

              One thing I don't seem to see is a way to monitor the status of ipsec site-to-site vpns using snmp traps. I can get either a [WARN-726] (a site is down) or a [INFO-726] (a site came up)... but I don't seem to get info on WHICH tunnel.

              Since I currently have 35 site-to-site vpns running through this thing "the vpn is down" isn't a very helpful alert.

              By contrast, if I have email alerts for the same event turned on, I get something like:

              VPN connection…

              • 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.

                  • Firewall Order of Operations

                    Firewall Order of Operations

                    Based on testing and additional information found in other request, it appears that the proxies/security services have a higher order of operation over the firewall. As such, even with firewall rules in place, the security services override those settings. With email protection, this essentially opens up SMTP on the Sophos UTM to anyone on ALL interfaces. This, thus, increases the surface attack area of the device to an unacceptable level.

                    Changing the order of operation would allow the administrator of the device to dictate, via firewall rules, what can and can not access the Sophos UTM…

                    • Web Filter Exception Transparent Bypass

                      Web Filter Exception Transparent Bypass

                      The web filter should allow you to configure transparent bypass exceptions in the exception section that allow you to transparently bypass traffic by matching source and/or destination network, host, url, regex, etc (similar to how it works for network protection settings). This way, for example, you can perform a transparent bypass for a specific host/network accessing specific streaming content at a specific URL without having to bypass the entire host entirely. The "Misc" section (in 9.2) can still be used for global transparent bypasses.

                      • 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...

                        • Web filtering - Access Timestamp

                          There is no way to display the time when a user accessed a URL within web filtering reports. Support have confirmed that the only way is via the raw http log.
                          This should be a pre-requisite of any web filtering report, as organizations need this for auditing and compliance checks.
                          Many thanks

                          • allow the New Custom Reports in Web Protection to search on username only.

                            At the moment the search has to be in the form DOMAIN\username and is case sensitive (for instance domain\username will not work).
                            This is the case in version 9.201-23. Apologies if it has been fixed in a later version.
                            Thanks,
                            Pete

                            • Two-Factor Authentication (OTP, etc) - limit to specific networks for WebAdmin and other portals.

                              Upgrade the existing Two-Factor implementation to have the ability to exclude specific networks/VLANs/VPN connections. If I have a "secure" network connection or I come in through a VPN connection, allow me to define what portals or resources will require OTP re-authentication.

Yet the support matrix doesn't show support for this card nor does it show anything listed by HID Global who is one of the top manufacturer's/providers of smart cards, smart card solutions, and smart card readers in the industry.

                                  • Antispoofing

                                    Hello,
                                    we are having the problem, that we are getting mails from external with our own smtp mailaddresses. To solve this problem I have to create an exception list with our smtp domains and deselect receiververification, right?
                                    Why isn`t there an button or build in function for antispoofing our own mail addresses. It could never be that someone send mails with our smtp domains from outside our own Mail Organisation. So if there comes an mail from outside with one of our smtp addresses the UTM had to block it directly!

                                    Thanks!

                                    • add the right (under roles) for viewing the RED Box Status

                                      I need to allow a user to view the status (Online/Offline) of all redboxes, as seen on Tab "Overview" under RED Management. This user should not see any other configurations or logs.

                                      • Sophos, an AV company, the UTM AV needs more granularity settings

                                        Sophos, an AV company,The UTM AV needs more granularity settings. What file types am I scanning??? Who knows..... I may have the hardware resources and I want to scan all file types, I have zero options with Sophos UTM. Take a look at Untangle, that gives you full control to dictate what you scan with it's two AVs Granted, one is Clam AV that is next to worthless, but boy you have a lot of granular control that is a far cry from ZERO control in Sophos UTM.

                                        • Support PPPoE RFC 4638 (MTU > 1492)

                                          This has been requested in the past and marked as completed, however, it is still not working.
                                          Even if an MTU of 1500 is set via the GUI, when running ifconfig still shows MTU 1492 on ppp interface.

                                          This is really needed in Spain as more and more ISP's are using MTU of 1500

                                          thanks
