  1. 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.

          • WebAdmin: Show disabled UTM 9.1 Toggles as red

            In the new UTM 9.1 you redesigned the Toggles (to enable/disable the features). But why you make the disabled Toggles grey instead red? Please make the Toggles red again. The new Design - but red for disabled Toggles.

            • 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".

              • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • Add UI support for NUT, so astaro can monitor a non attached UPS

                        Since astaro is using NUT, can you add support so that I can just add a remote UPS to upsmon. Ive had edited the config file on my local astaro and it would be nice to see the battery icon and that its fully support so I dont need to redo this after an update

                        • 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…

                            • 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…

                              • Packet Filter: Disable logging for multiple (or all) rules

                                It would be very nice, if there were a checkbox-action like "Disable Logging" for selected firewall rules.Everyone who have 100 rules or more knows what I mean.

                                  • Licensing: Licensing software subscriptions with different capacity

                                    It would be great if we could purchase software licenses of different protected IP's per-subscription on the same device. For example, If we need Web Application Security (for Protecting Servers) or Mail Security (to protect a mail server) we are forced to buy it for every IP behind the gateway. Licensing an entire LAN for protection from dedicated server attacks seems kind of unfair.

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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.
