  1. Monitoring: Add Zabbix / Nagios client

    A lot of us (at least with bigger environments) are using systems like Zabbix or Nagios to monitor their stuff.

    An direct integration of the clients into Astaro would it make a lot easier to integrate the Astaro boxes into it. SNMP alone does not provide a lot of values which are interesting to monitor. Like:
    - Packet filter violations
    - IPS stats
    - VPN Users online
    - and much more

    • Management: Enable UPS sharing

      It should be possible to make the UTM the UPS master and other servers obtain notifications from UTM or UTM becomes a client of another UPS server offering informations.

      • Backup: Partial Backup/Restore

        Allow a user to create and restore backup files that contain only parts of the configuration.. users would be able to selectivly make use of various parts of the configuration in other firewalls, allowing for easier rollout of multi-site locations. As well, they can restore only parts of a backup file that are required, thus allowing for faster recovery and without affecting all areas of the box.

        • iphone and andriod UTM management app

          It would be nice to be able to monitor and receive certain alerts from UTM from a phone, without having to navigate to the web interface.

          The app could have

          * NIC status 24 hours
          * IPS alerts
          * CPU load - space - ram - etc
          * current in out speeds
          * remote users
          * and many more

          The app could be just view only for security reasons and also utilized one time auth for installation.

          • add internet speed test to support tools

            Add an internet speed test (using something like speedtest-cli or a nagios check_speedtest-cli) to the management interface support tools. This check should bypass DPI, IPS/IDS, AV, etc. so users can tune the security services for optimal protection and speed. This could also be used as a reference when setting up QoS or even as variables in QoS settings as internet traffic speeds often are increased without user knowledge and the current QoS bandwidth settings are static. Periodically check internet speeds and report in the network graphics and executive reports.

            • make Sophos Endpoint updates by WebCID possible over HTTPS

              Please make it possible to use HTTPS for WebCID updates of the product Sophos Endpoint Protection. Now only HTTP is possible, this is undesirable because authentication details (credentials) are being sent over the internet in plain text.

                  We might include this to WebAdmin in the future, for now, you can do it manually via the command line. As root, type:

                  count_active_ip.plx —showcount

                  • Management: Archive backups like logs

                    UTM only supports automatic backups sent by email or to a UTM Manager repository.
                    It would be great to export them via SCP, FTP, Network Share like log files can.

                    • WebAdmin: Custom Administration Roles

                      Expand granularity of WebAdmin roles. Current access gives an "Office Manager" too much control across too many areas under each "manager" or "auditor" level term. We have the need to let one person Release Spam and add URLs to control office traffic

                      It would be nice if there was a list of available areas and operations with the ability for us to make a role composed of our selections.

                        • Management: Backup/Export mail quarantine, reports, database and logs to USB Hard Disk / Flash Drive

                          Backup or export the quarantine folders and other data not included in the backup files on the UTM. For example a mail being held in quarantine could be extremely important. If a device fails that data would be lost. Allowing external storage even just to a single restorable backup file would be a big selling point

                          • Allow more IP's on Home/Free UTM

                            with all the connected devices its becoming very easy to hit the 50 IP limit on a home edition license. Throw in a few lab servers and you are almost guaranteed to.

                            Any chance this can be increased? I see a few years ago this was done.

                            • WebAdmin: Add Speedtest.net support for Bandwidth Testing

                              It would be a big help if TOOLS - had the option to select an interface then point to www.speedtest.net or a few user selectable speedtest sites and be able to run Download & Upload speeds.
                              This would work especially on USB modem cards.

                              Nothing worse than having managers ask if their network is slow or the provider.

Dashboard, Alerts (DoS, Portscans, etc.), State of components (Webfilter, VPNs, etc.), Capacity Management (Load, Usage), etc.

                                  Hi,

                                  If should be great to save an history of the configuration each time an administrator save something and maybe create a restore point to rollback to the initial configuration if something does not work after some modifications.

                                  Thanks,

                                    • Monitoring: add support for N-able

                                      Many MSPs use N-able for monitoring and management. Add integration to allow UTMs and SUM to have status and alerts visible in N-able

                                      • Backup : Voucher are not backup !

                                        When we change or restore an UTM configuration, all the Voucher are lost !
                                        It's a problème for us !

                                        • Extended change log

                                          The changelog in the main management tab is limited in it's length - and is also cluttered up by logins without changes and failed logins.

                                          It would be a good thing to have a complete list of changes throughout the overall history of the ASG (on perhaps another place like "Support"->"Advanced" ) for a complete review of all changes.
