  1. allow Enforce Safe Search to override filtering method when HTTPS Decrypt and Scan is not being used..

    Currently, when the HTTPS traffic scanning is Do not scan or URL Filtering Only, SafeSearch is not enforced. Enforcing SafeSearch is a critical application for some deployments and there should either be a way to selectively add some sites for Decrypt and Scan at the global layer or as an option under Enforce Safe Search. Adding "&safe=active" is not applicable because that cannot be done when the https traffic is not being decrypted.

    • Reuse Webfiltering white/black lists

      Currently, when you need to add some exceptions to a profile (not to all users), you have to add them manually using regular expressions and/or adding domains to the exceptions section; but there is no way to create a white/black list and reuse them on one or several profiles.

      It would be very handy because then you would be able to change its content globally, currently you have to edit the exception lists on each profile manually.

      Regards,

      • Guest WLAN (Hotspot) - "DHCP Address Assignment Required" Option

        If guests change their IP adresses, it is not possible to track them in the logs. After a simple IP change, we have no possibility to connect an IP address to a MAC and then to a Voucher/Guest. So you can bypass the logging. This is an importion feature for guest wlan / hotspot feature!

        • Link translation with custom dictionary - like TMG has in a web publishing reverse proxy role

          Today I publish sap portal through TMG. To accomplish that publishing through a reverse proxy, I need to be able to replace sap specific code such as; 80&#x2f with 443&#x2f and http&#x3a with https&#x3a. This makes our webdynpro's work. These text replacing techniques are called custom dictionaries in TMG.

          Basically TMG goes through the entire page as its delivered to the end user's browser and changes this code on the fly. I use link translation for other situations too so I would love to see this feature added. Thank you.

          • mail rule

            When an email is quarantined should be possible to see which rules affecting this decision.
            If the mail is important you need to tell the sender what should you do to send the email again.

            • HTML5 VPN Portal: Language of Browser

              When you open a web application in HTML 5 VPN Portal, the application selects its language by the language of the browser, which is english.
              The user has to set his preferred language every time he uses the HTML5 VPN Portal again.

              We need a workaround to set the language of the browser to german, then the applications would start up with german language.

              • DHCP lease report?

                In order to document the number of users on our network, I would like to have a report on the number of DHCP leases provided on a daily or monthly basis.
                The data is listed in the “DHCP Server Log”, but no reporting tool to extract the information from it.

                I suggest you include this info in the “Executive Report”

                • add a control in the SMTP log tab of the Mail Manager so you can jump directly to a in the log. And make the next/previous arrows bigger!

                  There is no way to jump to a specific page in the SMTP log. And the arrows for going backward/forward by a page are tiny and almost impossible to click unless you're running at 640x480 resolution.

                  Would also be nice if we could search on partial IP addresses.

                  • Daily time limit for Wifi access for children

                    Voucher with daily time limit for accessing the web via WiFi, so that children can be delivered an access but can't stay connected all day. This way, the administrator can ajust the time limit for surfing the web regarding the age of children or teenagers that use the service. For now, this is already possible but the administrator needs to creat a voucher every day, which is quite painfull. An automatic task could be a good idea for elementary schools, high schools or any place with minor children.

                    • Require header information to be added

                      We use a number of cloud based services that require header information to be added (in a similar vain to Google Apps) being able to use these would enable a better user experience and a more secure environment.

                        • Network Usage report not include the Sophos UTM appliance in the report.

                          Currently Sophos UTM 9.2x includes the Sophos UTM appliances IP address in the network usage report, this is and can be somewhat confusing when your usage report includes how much data went through the appliance as well as each individual device.

                          What you end up with is the total data reporting 200% of what actually went through.

                          ie.

                          Sophos UTM Network Usage

                          192.168.0.200(Sophos UTM Appliance IP) 1.5GB
                          192.168.0.10 0.5GB
                          192.168.0.15 0.5GB
                          192.168.0.25 0.5GB
                          Total Traffic 3.0GB

                          So we now have to subtract the Sophos UTM IP from the total everyday to figure out the total usage :(

                          This is the…

                            • websocket support for WAF

                              we are hosting a SignalR hub (http://signalr.net/) behind a Sophos UTM 320. We use the Web Server Protection feature extensively in our environment, and as such have opted to use the same for this.
                              SignalR will always try to use Web Sockets (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WebSocket), a new HTML5 API, and fallback to other technologies where this isn't possible to be used.
                              Since we've been hosting the hub via the reverse proxy, none of our clients are able to connect via Web Sockets :so having support for websockets in WAF would be super cool

                              • Wireless: to be able to turn off hotspot on/off according to time period definition

                                It would be nice to be able to turn the hotspot on and off according to a certain period of time since the internet is free for a certain period of hours(unlimited) otherwise it gets pretty expensive. Therefore, in the paid time the internet usage would be limited by using the captive portal.

                                  • 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

                                    • FTP-Proxy virus scanning robustness

                                      At the moment, if virus scanning enabled on UTM (320) for files smaller than 50MB you can run in a problem, if the file a packed zip file with a high compress rate and a complex directory and file structure(e.g 220MB more then 1600 files). The transfer can not completed and the ftp log show you:
                                      2014:01:09-18:42:13 XXXXX-1 frox[23903]: Got no response from cssd
                                      2014:01:09-18:42:16 XXXXX-1 frox[23903]: Virus scanner failed

                                      My suggestion is, that the admin has the option to allow transfer complex zip files without an virus scan like a file that excite the maximum scanning size. it is…

                                      • add an option in the self service portal for email to allow users to delete spam and permanently block the sender

                                        The current process involves users having to copy the senders address and adding it to their own blocked senders list. Why not just have a button to delete the message and block the sender instead - less effort for the user.
