    • Networking: Bandwidth / Traffic Quota

      Add the ability for administrators to specify bandwidth limits for users and IP addresses in regards to how much they can consume during a certain time period, certain hard limit, or on a certain service/proxy.. Gives the option to control bandwidth usage on the AxG so that admins can better manage their internet connection and control overusage and heavy users, especially during certain times.

          • Networking: Full DNS Server

            It would be nice if Astaro could be used as a fully-functional DNS server with backward look up zones and all.
            At the moment SOHO networks with no internal DNS server are unable to perform reverse DNS and other features.

                • Mail Security: Check ZIP / Archive files for blocked extensions

                  I need, for example, to block exe files. however, the problem with ASG is that if files with blocked extensions are zipped - even without password protect the archive - they pass, because apparently Astaro only checks the zip file extension (rar, zip) and not the extensions of the files inside the archive, which means that you can bypass the blocking of any files by zipping them first. My only option now is to block zipped files which is not so practical as they may contain legitimate content that I don't want to block.

                  • Networking: Add TShark (WireShark) for Packet Dumps in WebAdmin

                    While TCPDump is useful, TShark is much more so, especially with Layer 7 filtering being added.

                    Add the ability to capture and save a packet dump on a selected interface via the support section of ASG's WebAdmin

                    • 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.

                        While we worked on this , the V8 WebAdmin was updated and adjusted to fit better in a standard size. However simply full-screening it or adding massive amounts of resolution wasn’t visually attractive. We will revisit this in the future perhaps.

                      • SMTP: Multiple Hostnames/Interfaces Support

                        With the SMTP proxy able to handle mail for many domains, allow the proxy to be configured so that an admin can assign a hostname per profile, or have the proxy report different hostnames per outgoing interface. (and the ability to specify which domains/profiles go out which interface). Allows for easier management and adoption of many smtp domains on a single asg appliance.

                        • Licensing: Free Home-Use License on ASG Appliances

                          Currently it is not possible to use a hardware appliance with a home use license, meaning it is necessary to wipe the device's hard drive and reinstall from the software appliance ISO. I've never been sure of the reason for this restriction - used Astaro hardware is available from sources such as eBay and so is a viable option for home use. It would be great to be able to make full use of the additional hardware appliance features (LCD display on 220s and up, graphic of appliance port activity on dashboard) when running as a home user.

                          • Reporting: Enhanced Hardware Information

                            Add granular and detailed reporting graphs showing details like:
                            CPU usage per core
                            CPU usage by processes(iowait, interrupts, useful for determining HW problems or poor performance)
                            RAM per process
                            SMART status
                            Heat/Cooling/Power(RPMs, temps, voltages)
                            UPS status(Vbatt, Vout, Vin, etc)

                            all of this can be implemented using Munin with some tweaking

                            • 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

                              • Upgrade to modern version of StrongSWAN which uses charon instead of pluto

                                Astaro still uses StrongSWAN ipsec version 4.4.1 which is from 2010.
                                The latest build of ver 4 is 4.6.4 in mid 2012.

                                But with today's times.. they are up to version 5.0.4! Version 5 started in mid 2012 when they ditched the old Pluto package and updated Charon to handle both IKE 1 and 2.

                                For a router boasting support, I'd think that would be a priority to at least be on-par with the open source technology.

                                Then after you do this, you can update the GUI maybe also to handle exposing some of the ipsec.conf settings that it's hiding…

                                  • Networking: Local Radius Server on ASG

                                    Cause small offices (planning offices, Laywers, etc.) are not using a windows server AD but like to use WLAN (cause there´s no cabeling needed) a local radius server would be helpful (i.e. available on Linksys Routers with TinyPEAP or via DD-WRT) to authentificate the users with a central security. So a local user database is still on the ASG. Why not implement an optional radius server instead of pointing to a local one on a windows server?

                                    • RED: DSL/VDSL (PPPOE) Support

                                      RED should be able to do DSL/VDSL (PPPOE), as this way it can be used with an ISP which is very common worldwide in requiring authentication against their modem.

                                      • Reverse Proxy: Authentication Offloading like TMG

                                        will there be a feature like Authentication / captive portal (e.g. the proxy settings"transparent with authentication" ) for enabling a reverse proxy?
                                        This would be so usfull for small installations with no frontend exchange / DMZ.
                                        (juniper calls this "webauth" )

                                          We are hard at work on this feature and will deliver the first implementation of front end authentication as part of our Web Server protection (reverse proxy) in UTM 9.2. The public beta will begin in October. Stay Tuned!

                                          Windows Vista and Windows 7 have built in SSTP VPN. If Astaro would support that feature, you could use VPN without installing an additional vpn client
