  1. WAF: Enable TLS protocol selection, support Server 2003

    UTM WAF helps protect older and weaker servers, but only if it can connect to them. OpenSSL does not handshake properly with Server 2003 for reasons that I cannot fully explain. Based on SSL Labs test reports, the problem is mostly unique to OpenSSL clients. However, the connection works perfectly if you prevent OpenSSL from attempting a TLS1.2 connection (e.g. openssl s_client -connect server:443 -no_tls1_2) Please provide protocol selectivity so that the WAF connection to a "Real" (internal) web server can be configured to match what that webserver can accept.

      • dynamic response to Intrusion Prevention detection

        UTM already knows how to block IPs that perform port scanning: why not to block also attackers as soon as Intrusion Prevention detect them ? (this way, also unknown attack packets are dropped imediately). I noticed detections are very often 4 or 5 types only, but I exclude exploiting tools try only 5 types. IP should be banned for a customizable timeout ... like 5 minutes to 4 hours: if the attacked ip (or firewalled ip-range) doesn't answer, they surely go elsewhere. Thank you

        • Synchonze lLogging between nodes

          This is not a feature request, it is a bug report. But supoort disagrees.

          Logging between nodes should really be synced. Obviously not the really node specific stuff, but for example the Network Usage logs are completely useless if one ore more fail-overs have occurred in the time frame you're looking at. Something which in case of yearly, is always.

          But this goes for all log files. Want to check how often someone has logged in in the past month: can't be done it there has been an update (because then there will have been a fail-over as well.

          Please…

            • Enable users to reset their domain user password using Web Mail

              There are many companies that force employees to reset domain user passwords very often. Now, when employees need to access mail using their Web Mail and their password has expired they will have to call IT to reset their password, but if working hours has finished and there is no IT personnel in the office, or maybe it's weekend, which is even worse, they will have to wait until next working day so that IT can help. In situation like this, enabling users to reset their domain account password using Web Mail Portal, like Microsoft TMG does, would help.

                  • Powershell Module for searching logs

                    It would be great if there were a Powershell module to allow doing granular log searches. I often like to look for specific information and in differing ways. The time to obtain this information from support is far too inefficient. For instance, I was just looking for all messages in the log with the .email top level domain.

                    • Allow backups to be download on secondary SUM

                      If the SUM is the primary SUM on the UTM, you can set it to back up daily, etc.

                      The secondary SUM, doesn't have this option. It doesn't need to have control like the primary SUM, just get back ups.

                      • AD Prefetch schedule

                        Presently AD Prefetch schedule isn't picking up newly created accounts in AD. Every time we need to click on "Prefetch now" to have the new accounts in UTM instead. It would be nice if the prefetch schedule could pick up newly created users in AD automatically.

                        • tor meek block

                          Blocking TOR-MEEK would be a great feature.

                          The application filters do not block any MEEK-REFLECT connections, the only way stopping clients to use TOR is taking them offline or blocking the entire internet including google/apple and microsoft wich isnt a option...soooo ? plz? :)

                              • Show uptime for PPPOE and DIAL devices

                                I would like to see on the dashboard the uptime for any dialup links like ADSL PPPOE - or time since last 'connection' - plus a hover over or similar quick link shows the last 10 uptimes - this can help determine if an interface is flapping
                                At the moment if I think a link is down by the time I login to the UTM it may already be reconnected and I cant tell if it was a link outage or something else - if the dashboard shows uptime this it is simple to see if a recent disconnect happened…

                                  • Support packet fragmentation for packets arriving from internet that will be crossing an IPSec VPN tunnel

                                    Currently packets >1500 bytes from our ISP connected to a UTM (v 9.404-5) are accepted and fragmented for traffic destined to a LAN. However, packets > 1500 bytes from the internet that will cross an IPSec tunnel (also terminating on the UTM) to reach a remote network are rejected with the UTM sending an ICMP fragmentation needed.

                                    If the UTM will accept jumbo packets and fragment for the LAN, it should do the same for traffic to networks across a VPN tunnel.

                                    See case 6142979 for additional details.

                                    • automatic configuration in UTM to automatically delete out of office replies that are getting stuck in the SMTP spool

                                      ompany: Kent Police

                                      Contact: Stuart Patton

                                      Sophos Product: UTM 220

                                      Version in Production: 9.352-6

                                      How will this new feature address your business requirements: It will allow us to keep the SMTP spool clear of messages that have no prospect of being delivered
                                      (out-of-office replies to do-not-reply messages that originate from domains with no MX records)

                                      How would you rate the importance of this feature?; 1 = Critical, 5 = Nice-to-have: 1 if a large SMTP spool impacts the UTM performance, 5 if it does not ;-)

                                      • Synchronising between Microsoft AD with Sophos Firewall.

                                        We discovered a problem when synchronising between Microsoft AD with Sophos Firewall. If the AD include two accounts with the same email address, then the Sophos firewall can not synchronise these AD accounts with the internal Sophos database. Is the possible to change that, because many companies are using an email address for two or more employees. Thank you in advance.

                                        • Have Sophos Deployment Packager skip copying files when the source directory is the local machine

                                          If a local location is entered in the "source folder" field in Sophos Deployment Packager, it should recognize this fact and skip making an extra copy of the files. By "local location" I mean if the path starts with a drive letter as well as a UNC path that starts with the name of the local machine.
