    • WebAdmin: Use More Screen Resolution

      Allow WebAdmin to scale (such as was the case in V6) to correctly use most/all of the available screen resolution. Use all the available vertical resolution (to avoid having to scroll) and also use as much of the horizontal space as possible. Simply stretching it to fit won't be pretty, focus on the vertical and use horizontal as it makes sense.

        While we worked on this , the V8 WebAdmin was updated and adjusted to fit better in a standard size. However simply full-screening it or adding massive amounts of resolution wasn’t visually attractive. We will revisit this in the future perhaps.

        • let admin disable „Sophos Outlook Add-in“ in User-portal like all the other Apps.

          The UTM-Admin can disable unused items with "Disable Portal Items".
          All items but "Sophos Outlook Add-in".

            With 8000 views, there is a huge VGA blind but SERIAL aware user community. We would love a serial console (ttyS0) enabled installer image.

                  Planned  ·  Angelo ComazzettoAngelo Comazzetto responded

                  This feature slipped from the 9.1 release and is targeted at UTM Version 9.2 Now.

                • Astaro Configuration Shell - Command line interface (CLI)

                  ASG - great product with excellent Web GUI
                  According to Angelo Comazzetto"..it is what makes ASG so user friendly .."
                  Unfortunately, it is absolutely not reality if you dealing with complex configuration

                  Simple example, you need to create few hundreds of Network Definitions
                  Name, Type, Interface, IPv4 Address, Netmask, Comment (6 x 200 = 1200) copy and paste (1200)
                  plus 1x200=200 Save, and 1x200=200 "New Network Definition", 2400 clicks to switch interface between text file and GUI.
                  Total 5200 clicks and probably 433 minutes later it will be finished
                  Who is going to pay for it - customer replacing Netscreen…

                  • WebAdmin: Hide Unlicensed Features

                    It would be nice, to be able to hide unneeded or unlicensed features, so the Webinterface is concise and only shows what I can work with.

                    • Import IP addresses from txt or CSV file to network definitions in Web Manager

                      I have over 3500 IP addresses I need to add into my network definitions. I need to add them all to firewall definitions. It would save me so much work if I could just import these IP addresses as a CSV into a bunch of network definitions.

                      It would be even more advantageous if I could import the IP addresses to network definitions and have them all automatically go into a network group.

                        • Port forwarding/NAT configuration wizard

                          Currently, it is a time consuming nightmare for an admin, especially one new to Sophos, to configure port forwards. Doing something as simple as opening Port 80 for a web server, that would also be accessible from the LAN, is needlessly complicated. It might be nice to have powerful features in the GUI, but something should be done to make this common task more intuitive. On an old Linksys router, this is an intuitive, 3 minute task. I'm assuming most end users are not configuring port forwards every day, which means they are not experts, and it needs to be…

                          • WebAdmin: Redirect HTTP to HTTPS for Login

                            Often admins or users will mistakenly try to login to WebAdmin or the User Portal without HTTPS. In this case they get a generic message informing them to try again using HTTPS. Instead of this, simply re-direct the browser to the same IP (and port) using HTTPS.

                            This will solve some "unable to login" questions by users and admins.

                            • Allow for at least logo customization of the User Portal and WebAdmin page.

                              Would like to see the capability to extend at LEAST logo customization of the User Portal page. Ideally it would be beneficial to modify the logo for the WebAdmin portal as well, however the User Portal customization is critical if we are to position this solution against competing products from Juniper (MAG), Palo Alto, and Fortinet.

                                • Dashboard in current UTM 9: frame for interfaces too small

                                  When more than the standard-interfaces are beeing used (RED, VLANs, etc.) the frame is too small to display them all. A direct overview is impossible and scrolling is needed. Even more worse: the scrolled-down list jumps back to the beginning within a few seconds (automatic pagerefresh). I think it's necessary to make this frame user-adjustable or (better) to have it adjust automatically. Please change this :)

                                    • WebAdmin: Time-Period Definition Groups

                                      Example: A customer wants to handle the internet access restrictive for the users but from 12 to 1PM, from 6 PM to 6AM and on the weekends, the users should have more access in the proxy profiles.

                                      So i have to create 4 Filter Assignments (lunch, evening, morning, weekend) for the open periods.

                                      If there are different rule for the open periods, there will be 8, 12, 16 Filter Assignments! With the possibility to group time periods or to create one period with many single entries, the number of necessary Assignments can be reduced drastically.

                                      • WebAdmin: Ability to Sort by Any Field

                                        It would be nice if one could sort the various object lists by arbitrary fields.
                                        E.g. services by protocol, by source port, by dest port
                                        or DHCP static mappings by mac or ip.
                                        Implementing it in a generic matter so that it is available for all lists would greatly increase flexibility with probably reasonable costs.

                                        • WebAdmin: Support multiple ports (and ranges) in a single service definition

                                          Currently for a service you can only have a range of ports or a single port. Some applications will use a range of ports in addition to a few single ports that are outside of the range, or for example 3 totally separate ports.
                                          In the service definitions I have to create a seperate definition for each single port and each range port, then group them together. You should be able to specify any number of ports in the same service definition with commas and colons like this"2000, 4000, 3100:3200"
