      • Allow User Portal and Admin Console use the same port with different hostnames

        I'm not a fan of using non-standard port numbers for protocols. Whilst you can reconfigure the Admin Console to use the standard HTTPS port of 443, it then prevents you from being able to use the User Portal (unless I've missed something!)

        I'd like to be able to connect to the admin interface with one address (e.g.: https://fw-admin.domain.net) and the user portal with another (e.g.: https://portal.domain.net)

        • original IP clients

          It would be nice if UTM would pass the original IP address of clients who visiting a the web site that is behind the UTM, some reporting application like webtrends dont understand the custome filed (X- Forwader) and this app need the field with client oraginal IP address to create a correct graf to show the hits on a website.

          • Prevent or Ignore invalid host DNS entrys

            Currently the Host entry process will allow for a DNS entry that is invalid. This in turn breaks the DNS Proxy (names) service which the firewall uses to process WebFilter requests.

            The web interface should filter and reject, or filter and ignore all invalid DNS entries so that they are not improperly entered into the DNS services ledger.

            • Implement Tab and Forward/Back button in HTML5VPN Portal Webapps

              When using HTML5VPN Portal Webapps, I can only use a single page.
              And I can not go back to the previous page.
              I want you to implement Forward/Back button and Tabbed browser function.

                  • Disabling SMTP Authentication for specific users or groups

                    it would be great to have a opportunity to disable the SMTP authentication for single users or groups. We have a lot of brute force attacks via the smtp-proxy and domainusers were disabled because of those attacks. Therefor we've activated the "Block Password Guessing"-feature for SMTP proxy, because blocking of 10+ IP's each day for each user isn't the right way.
                    Now the problem is, if those requests will come from different IP addresses the account will be locked anyway.

                    • review the way Spoofing prevention works

                      Case 6684262

                      That is just "totally without any value in it!!!" Spoofing prevention just does not work at all.

                      Looking at how the feature is explained on my Reflexion account and how it works is non-sense, just does not work at all... Check case above and just do a good job or remove it as it just does not work.

                        • For Sophos Endpoint - Device Control

                          It would be great to allow the reverse of the current Device Control functionality, to allow us to 'Allow All' USB storage devices and then 'blacklist' a specific device.
                          Currently you can only 'Block All' and then allow a device.
                          The thought here is to backlist devices that are repeatedly re-infected by non-protected systems off-site and then brought back into the mix.

                            • Exclude IP Address or Range

                              I've seen it at some other firewall solutions that it is possible to exclude IP Addresses. This would be very useful for firewall rules.

                              Example: Only allow access to the internet

                              Any --Any ---> Any IP not in Range 192.168.10.0/24 and 192.168.11.0/24

                                    • Mail & Country blocking

                                      If using Country blocking in firewall and you send a mail to a blocked country, allow the server that you send to to do an rdns check etc so the outgoing mail isn't treated as spam.
                                      Also allow mail exceptions to be placed in Country blocking exceptions. The above combination will allow the UTM to send all mail to & receive specific mail from a blocked country.

                                        Sophos send a lot of notification WARN-032 and WARN-033 when we have Internet break. Problem is that's on some internet line (ex wireless internet) connexion is not 100% stable and some packet can not be send but It's not say that's Internet line is break. Could you authorize in configuratino to change default timeout value to be increase by users before send these notification ? ex after 30s Internet break > sophos can send notification warning.
                                        Thanks in advance.

                                        • IPSEC

                                          IPSEC
                                          1. If using IPSEC (remote access) and psk, there is no option for auto firewall rules. Add option here.
                                          2. If using IPSEC (remote access) and psk, manual firewall rules do not work as there is a hidden rule applied in the background that is higher up the list and overrides any manual rule you put into the UTM. Get rid of this rule so manual rules work.
                                          3. If using IPSEC (remote access) and psk with no XAuth, there is no indication that anybody is remotely connected to the UTM at all. Show this in the GUI.
