  1. Server Load Balancing: Alternate internal port than external

    Just like NAT allows, let us choose an alternate port to redirect traffic to on the internal servers. Right now, whatever is external is internal, and it forces us to use NAT which kills any option to have high-availability and load balancing.

    • FTP SITE CHANGE

      changing the way the FTP site works

      Essentially as the .md file in the FTP directory is from the same FTP site, it doesn't mean or validate anything (e.g. cannot be relied upon to validate the trustworthiness of the file). Reason being if the site is spoofed (e.g. via DNS) then we cannot validate the identity of the remote server, given it is clear-text FTP (no mechanism to validate the site's identity, such as via SSL/TLS). Further, if the site has been compromised, an attacker merely has to place the MD5 hash there for the malicious ISO file they replaced.

      • Add optional PIN entry field for two-factor authentication

        There are really two big issues I have with the two factor authentication implementation. The first is that no where in the setup for the user is there any information or instruction as how to use two factor authentication. Every other two factor authentication that I have used has had a separate box for putting in the random code. I only learned about how to properly use two factor authentication after calling support and being informed that I needed to append the randomly generated code to the end of my password to which I say "Really! and you arn't going…

        • DHCP on RED

          I think it would be great if we have an option to move the DHCP server for RED networks from the UTM to the RED device. This would allow normal LAN access (e.g. file and print sharing) at the remote site even with a disconnected or outage on your uplink.

          • Enhance Application Control App Categorization

            Lot of people would like to be able to easily block advertisers, web trackers and analyzers to enhance their surf experience in general and to enhance privacy too by blocking all those trackers and analyzers.

            There are already >150 of such advertisers, trackers and analyzers as apps in the UTM's application control. Sadly all of them are categorized as "web services", which is misleading andunhelpful, as in this category are also CNET and Mozilla downloadservers, CDN's as Akamai etc., whic disallows a simply general block af that category.

            I propose, that this "web services" category will be splitted further into …

              • Use SUM as Log Server/Archive

                It would be very helpful if I could use a SUM Server as Remote Log File Archive. With this feature I could centralize all Logs of all my UMT's. A addon feature to search in e.g. Webfilter Logs of multiple UTM's at the same time would also be very nice!
                And if I do complex searches or log files are very big, the load will move away from productive UTM's.

                Thanks in advance,
                Pascal

                • RED LAN Interface up/down when Tunnel up/down

                  For monitoring purposes it would be very helpful to reflect the RED tunnel status up/down in its assigned LAN interface:
                  Then a simple ping check (e.g. by nagios) could prove whether the RED is reachable or not.

                        • 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…

                          • Global Bot / Script Kiddie / Brute Force IP Blacklist

                            Sophos should maintain a blacklist of Bots / Script Kiddies / Brute Force attackers based on big data of failed logins on UTM's.

                            Problem to solve:
                            There are lot of (often automated) login attempts to the different publicly available UTM facilities as SMTP (authenticated relaying), User Portal, Webadmin, SSH, Reverse Proxy. On my UTM I have for example since weeks a ongoing brute force attacks on the smtp proxy, as authenticated relaying is allowed on it. Blocking those bots after 5 attempts helps only marginal, as they automatically switch to other bots (new IP) and continue the brute force attack.…

                            • Web Server Protection: Certificate-based Authentication

                              I would appreciate to support certificate-based authentication like at Microsoft TMG. I don't know why Sophos is making advertisements for "Replace your TMG with Sophos UTM" if UTM even can't do this! I want the reverse proxy to check a client certificate, If this certificate is not valid or it doesn't exists it shows an error page.

                                  • HTML5 VPN Portal: Language of Browser

                                    When you open a web application in HTML 5 VPN Portal, the application selects its language by the language of the browser, which is english.
                                    The user has to set his preferred language every time he uses the HTML5 VPN Portal again.

                                    We need a workaround to set the language of the browser to german, then the applications would start up with german language.

                                      • FTP-Proxy virus scanning robustness

                                        At the moment, if virus scanning enabled on UTM (320) for files smaller than 50MB you can run in a problem, if the file a packed zip file with a high compress rate and a complex directory and file structure(e.g 220MB more then 1600 files). The transfer can not completed and the ftp log show you:
                                        2014:01:09-18:42:13 XXXXX-1 frox[23903]: Got no response from cssd
                                        2014:01:09-18:42:16 XXXXX-1 frox[23903]: Virus scanner failed

                                        My suggestion is, that the admin has the option to allow transfer complex zip files without an virus scan like a file that excite the maximum scanning size. it is…
