Port forwarding/NAT configuration wizard
Currently, it is a time consuming nightmare for an admin, especially one new to Sophos, to configure port forwards. Doing something as simple as opening Port 80 for a web server, that would also be accessible from the LAN, is needlessly complicated. It might be nice to have powerful features in the GUI, but something should be done to make this common task more intuitive. On an old Linksys router, this is an intuitive, 3 minute task. I'm assuming most end users are not configuring port forwards every day, which means they are not experts, and it needs to be intuitive for the day they need to make a change or addition.
This feature is included in the upcoming release, code-named Project Copernicus. It is currently in public beta. For more details, please see https://www.astaro.org/beta-versions/project-copernicus-public-beta
While not a wizard, the newly introduced business application policies provide a much more intuitive workflow for forwarding and securing traffic to internal servers.
What? NAT is extremely easy on the Sophos UTM. If you think that is complicated, I think you should learn more about networking.
sorry guys, but if you arent able to configure a firewall without wizard, you shouldnt do it, becaus you dont know what you are doing. this is high risk for the security!!
I would disagree with this. The NAT translations are very easy to setup in there current state. If you new to Sophos or Firewalls in general then I can see how this might be a bit strange, however I assure you that once you understand it you'll be able to fly through it.
This seems to be similar to this idea:
100% agree, this should be implemented.
