    • VPN: Add Win7/Vista SSTP support for SSL VPN

      Windows Vista and Windows 7 have built in SSTP VPN. If Astaro would support that feature, you could use VPN without installing an additional vpn client

        • VPN: Manually Disconnect a logged-in User

          I would like to have a option on the Remote Access Status Page to throw out a logged-in-User. In some cases it would be necessary to log out a user manually with the webadmin-interface.

                  • Allow multiple simultaneous html5 vpn users

                    http://www.astaro.org/gateway-products/vpn-site-site-remote-access/46551-html5-portal-multiple-users.html

                    Basically we need the ability to establish a pool of html 5 connections so more than one user can use the html5 portal at a time using rdp or any other protocol.

                      • VPN: Blackberry VPN Client Support

                        The built in BlackBerry VPN client uses AES-128, SHA1, IKE DH Group 5 (for low CPU powered devices) and PFS. See pages 271-274 in http://docs.blackberry.com/en/admin/deliverables/7228/Policy_Reference_Guide.pdf . What is not defined in this is are the IKE and IPSec SA Lifetimes, and the PFS group used. Currently Astaro's IPSec remote access GUI does not support IKE DH Group 5. However, Astaro (I think) uses StrongSwan for the underlying VPN functionality on ASG - which already supports IKE DH Group 5.

                        So this feature request is to
                        1. Enable the support of IKE DH Group 5 in the Astaro GUI for IPSec…

                                • VPN: Split DNS for SSL VPN Clients

                                  Perform selective DNS forwarding via the SSL VPN tunnel for a given list of domains to the DNS servers that are pushed to the client when the VPN is established.

                                  All other DNS lookups should be performed to the local DNS servers the client uses. Thus you would be able to look up both instead of having to choose.

                                      • VPN: Local VPN ID choices when using Pre-Shared-Key

                                        If one side of a VPN is another product, it might not accept an 'ANY Remote VPN ID' option, while the UTM doesn't have a fixed IP.
                                        Thus, the other VPN gateway doesn't know the UTM IP, so it cannot use the IP as peer VPN ID. UTM cannot change its local VPN ID when we set up the Authentication type as Pre-Shared Key. The default local VPN ID is the external IP address and cannot be changed.

                                        Please support changing the local VPN ID when the Authentication type is Pre-Shared Key, then we can use hostname or email address…

                                        • Management: Wake-on-LAN (WoL) Support

                                          Lots of use cases where the UTM could send WoL commands. Such as to HTML5 VPN targets which are powered off.

                                          Basicaly in the preferences we could set the destination server MAC Address to use for the wake on lan command... and have a small waiting message/progress bar until the target server is booted.
