VPN: Allow UTM to act as a VPN Client
Add a VPN Client support such as L2TP inside ASG so it can connect to a VPN solution without needing to setup Site2Site.
this is not available as using that interface option requires a physical port which is senseless.
I'd also like to see this implemented as sometimes having to mass implement pptp connections on the endstations is annoying and leaves me with no control over the traffic passed

Don't forget OpenVPN too!
This feature entirely can be great for using an out-of-country VPN for your entire network. Especially for countries that block sites such as YouTube, without having to setup a VPN on each computer (unfortunately bypassing the UTM completely)
If implemented, I would like this to include an option to disable outgoing traffic if the VPN goes down, as well as an email notification.
Additionally the PPPoA client dosen't support any configuration and is currently set to not require-mppe-128, and there is no way to enable this in the gui.
Bob, this is right, except that the PPTP client need to be bounded to an interface. So it you want 5 different PPTP connection established you need to dedicate as many NIC.
If Adding a VPN client was implemented the way I suggest it, you could create "virutal PPTP interface" without a network card attached, and be able to use it with the firewall etc.

This already is available for PPTP. In 'Interfaces', select DSL (PPPoA/PPTP). Then make some Firewall rules, and you're done!
OpenVPN would certainly be a nice to have.
PPTP support would also be a must.
