  1. Networking: Multiple bridge support

    Many SMBs have outposts that do not have the perfect infrastructure to install servers there.
    So for several reasons (Security and Maintenance) we would like to install their dedicated servers in the HQ but appearing still as LAN devices.

    Pretending bandwith is not an issue we would like to use RED to connect the outpost clients to the servers in the HQ.
    To keep the network simple we need the possibility to configurer more than one bridge interface in ASG
    The servers appear to be in the clients local network, but are protected and seperated behind Astaro Gateway.

    Example:
    RED-Interface.1…

    • Networking: Bandwidth / Traffic Quota

      Add the ability for administrators to specify bandwidth limits for users and IP addresses in regards to how much they can consume during a certain time period, certain hard limit, or on a certain service/proxy.. Gives the option to control bandwidth usage on the AxG so that admins can better manage their internet connection and control overusage and heavy users, especially during certain times.

      • Networking: Full DNS Server

        It would be nice if Astaro could be used as a fully-functional DNS server with backward look up zones and all.
        At the moment SOHO networks with no internal DNS server are unable to perform reverse DNS and other features.

        • Networking: Add IGMP proxy

          Implement a simpe IGMP proxy so that IPTV at least from T-Home Entertain can be received. This is different from standard Multicast as it only to pass the asg and not dynamically communicate or register with other multicast servers

          • Networking: Add TShark (WireShark) for Packet Dumps in WebAdmin

            While TCPDump is useful, TShark is much more so, especially with Layer 7 filtering being added.

            Add the ability to capture and save a packet dump on a selected interface via the support section of ASG's WebAdmin

            • Networking: QoS For VPN Traffic

              Allow for Quality of Service rules to be created that apply to VPN traffic of roadwarrior and site-site.. Allows for better management of traffic limits and gives admins the ability to guarantee and control bandwidth across VPN's. Perhaps part of a V8 Revamp of QoS?

              • Networking: Granular QoS

                Provide a means of applying QoS to users and sessions, so that granular controls can be applied as needed to better control traffic and bandwidth.. Fine-tunes the offering of QoS to allow for more specific environments and configurations.

                • Networking: Local Radius Server on ASG

                  Cause small offices (planning offices, Laywers, etc.) are not using a windows server AD but like to use WLAN (cause there´s no cabeling needed) a local radius server would be helpful (i.e. available on Linksys Routers with TinyPEAP or via DD-WRT) to authentificate the users with a central security. So a local user database is still on the ASG. Why not implement an optional radius server instead of pointing to a local one on a windows server?

                      I’m happy to say this will be part of UTM 9.2 which will enter public beta in October. We will add support to our DYNDNS implementation for OpenDNS, Strato AG, No-IP.com, selfHOST, and DNSdynamic. While we’d like to just open it up for all providers, the syntax requires a bit of sanity-checking in WebAdmin for mass-consumption, so instead we’ll expand it with these providers and check it again at a later date for including more if required. (As it sits, we support a lot of vendors now).

                    • Networking: Integrated Wake on LAN Service

                      Add the wake on lan functionality. Provide the possibility to create a table (INTERFACE | MAC ADDRESS | DESCRIPTION ) where we can store the mac address of hosts to wake up. Also, the wake up command can be scheduled or manually executed.

                      • Multipath: Allow WAN1 to burst to WAN2

                        Astaro must have the ability to allow traffic to burst over to a second WAN link when the primary WAN link is saturated or reaches a defined maximum of traffic amount in a day/week/month. We currently have options to failover traffic depending on source, destination, and interface. What we need is another category for bandwidth utilization.

                          It would be nice to add to the DHCP and DNS the ability to register dynamically on the local DNS zone the name of the machine and IP address that have just be assigned by the DHCP server.

                            It would be great if you could configure a VLAN interface with DHCP.
                            Also, I'd like to create the ability to use a VLAN on an interface already defined interface with PPPoE.

                              It is useful to have LAN(default) and VLAN on the same Interface, so you can have one uplink from your switch, at this time you need 2 cables to connect your switch.

                                • VPN: Support zeroconf / avahi / bonjour

                                  Given that Astaro's VPN mechanism creates non-bridged subnets, it'd be incredibly useful for networks with a large number of Macs particularly to have Wide-Area Bonjour (i.e. Avahi or Zeroconf) built into ASG's DNS server.

                                    • Networking: Enhanced Link Aggregation (LAG) Modes Support

                                      Using the middleware (cc CLI) it is already possible to set link-aggregation to a different mode than the default mode 4 (802.3ad).
                                      We would appreciate to see all other modes becoming an official part of the Web GUI:
                                      - mode 0 (balance-rr)
                                      - mode 1 (active/backup)
                                      - mode 2 (balance-xor)
                                      - mode 3 (balance-broadcast)
                                      - mode 5 (balance-tlb)
                                      - mode 6 (balance-alb)

                                        • Networking: IPv6 DHCP Interfaces

                                          One of my ISPs has begun offering IPv6 addresses through DHCP to capable connected systems. This currently doesn't work with UTM as the Cable Modem (DHCP) interface type only supports IPv4 addressing.

                                          It would be nice if a DHCP type interface could be configured which could pull an IPv6 address.
