RED: Compression Support for Tunnels
Please implement data compression ability for RED Tunnels. This would allow more effective throughput using RED devices with slow internet connections - especially with slow uplink speeds, and also saving RED Bandwidth on Internet Uplink on HQ if there's for example heavy usage of good compressible content as HTTP traffic, SMB access etc.
This feature is available as of Sophos UTM V9.2.
Updated my system to 9.2-11 and tested this feature and it seems that the RED tunnel frequently disconnects when compression is enabled.

Thank you for the update and considering our request. If you need a beta let me know.
Any update on this feature? Is there somewhere that we could track the progress?
We are desperately looking for this feature to be implemented for our very low bandwidth applications.
Currently we cannot use RED devices as we require compression for compliance.
Any update on this feature?

you can implement something like this http://www.trafficsqueezer.org/
Very high demanded too. In countries with no high broadband access (Italy included).
