  1. Work on Stability, Reliability and Security

    (Please admin, don't mark as already possible before clarifying!)

    As mentioned earlier, it would be good to have code worked on to be stabilised. (No, 9.2 is not so stable, please check the forums, the latest 9.210-10 around for about a month is famous for being bad).

    What we, the users, would like, is for work to be done on stabilising the firmware, rather than added features.

    Sophos is GREAT, but it is very very unreliable. It needs to be restarted every month or 2.

    • Sophos UTM software installer with serial console enabled by default

      Please see this www.astaro.org thread:
      https://www.astaro.org/gateway-products/hardware-installation-up2date-licensing/51383-sophos-pcengines-apu-6.html#post286165

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

      • Webserver Protection: Reverse Authentification with NTLM and Kerberos

        The Reverse Authentification feature (UTM 9.2) for WAF is a nice progres, but I'm hoping that it will soon be extended. There are many scenarios that require at least NTLM; Kerberos would be nice as well. Yes, we are coming from TMG :-)

        • Increase free license scope or make it cheap...

          allow more than 50 ips in free license or provide a home license which has a reasonable cost. WIth ipv6 temp addresses i can exahust all 50 ip address with only 4 devices in my house.. kinda pointless and stupid if you ask me

            • Sophos VPN app for mobile platforms

              Sophos should develop an own VPN app for mobile operating systems (iOS / Android / Windows Phone) which can connect via the UTM using the configuration pushed from the UTM to the SMC server.
              It should also support the Per-App-VPN feature which was introduced in iOS 7.

                • 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".

                  • Failover SXL lookups to Smart Filter Cache

                    SXL lookups regularly fail due to issues with the the Sophos service, the virtual host the service is running on or simply just networking issues local to the UTM.

                    As the technology already exists to use an offline file then why not simply have an SXL fail over to the local categories. For example, if there was no response to an SXL lookup in 15 seconds failover to the local cache for the next 5 min.

                    This way there should never be any downtime in the service which either leaves a customer unable to browse the web or allows a…

                    • DHCP/WiFi: enable transfer of connected wireless clients or DHCP leases to MAC address white/black-lists

                      When setting up a new WiFi it can be quite a hurdle to enter every clients MAC address manually. This process is also very error prone.

                      It would be way easier to connect all clients without MAC filter, create a MAC address list from all connected clients and then restrict WiFi access to that list.
                      The same would also be nice for the DHCP leases list.

                      • MDM based access through Reverse Proxy

                        With MDM (as a service) being connected to a UTM it would be good to be able to set up a Reverse Proxy (WAF) profile as counterpart. I.e.: only devices allowed by MDM may pass to ActiveSync.

                        This way it would not be necessary to set up a dedicated machine for this task and DNAT rule (and you can still use 443 for other webservers as well on the same IP).

                        This way UTM and MDM would benefit (UTM being more value to MDM SaaS customers). This will greatly emphasize Sophos product interconnection.

                            I would love to see an option where i can choose internet traffic to go from local internet line rather then RED IPSec tunnel to UTM to reduce bandwidth load on upload tunnel.
                            A service based option where we can divert traffic for example HTTP, SMTP to use local internet line where red is connected and DNS, DHCP, FTP to use RED tunnel going towards UTM.

                              The feature is available on many home routers, but seems to be missing from the UTM which now controls both my work and home networks.

                              It is really nice to be able to import a hosts file such as the one referred to here:

                              This allows all attached devices to be able to block various ads and other malicious content really easily. In implementation, it would be nice to be able to either cut and past the desired hosts file into a textbox or perhaps to import a new hosts file. Perhaps the user modified one would be a…

                                • Second DHCP Server in DHCP relay

                                  It would be great if you could enter two DHCP server in the DHCP relay. We have two Windows 2012 R2 server with an active/standby Cluster. If the active node Fails, the secondary will take function. But we have to take care, to change the server in the relay on the UTM to let it still work.

                                  • Ability to block any subdomain in the Blacklisted address patterns

                                    I would like to block *@*.example.com but it is impossible. Spammers use subdomain in order to bypass the filter.

                                      For us as distri of both products this is really an "urgent" feature request.

                                      • 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.
