    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.

        • Site-to-Site VPN should not disabled on license expiration

          When TotalProtect Licensing expires due a customer not responding to renewal notifications, can Site-to-Site VPN please be left active, all the security services can be disabled as expected, such as Web Security, Email Security etc, but Site-to-Site VPNs should remain active.

          • Create a Wireless Hotspot Captive Portal bypass by MAC address

            I need the ability to whitelist certain MAC addresses for devices like XBox and Roku that cannot use a captive portal. Almost every other captive portal system has this ability. Also the ability to link this MAC to a voucher would be great for management as you could input the MAC when you generate the voucher and it would expire when the voucher does.

            • Major Delivery Issue with SPX as it is Treated as Toxic

              We have only been live with SEA for 3 weeks and we are already having to look at an alternate solution to deliver file securely.

              Problem:
              As you know many of the bad guys like to hide their toxic payloads in password protected file because all email filtering products cant scan inside them.
              We are finding out more and more every day that companies we send to have email polices that block password protected attachments. Sophos even highly recommends that you do this on their SEA for inbound emails.
              These companies not only block but they block and drop, so…

              • Add Hostnames to the "IP addresses in scope of license" List

                Under Management->Licensing->Active IP Addresses->IP addresses in scope of license

                add the Name next to the IP Address if a (Host) Network Definition exists for the IP address. NOTE: Please do not use the Hostname field as it can be automatically populated. The user defined Name field should be more helpful to admins.

                        • the maximum of included IPs in home edition is out of date

                          The maximum of included IPs in home edition is out of date. Please raise the max to 100, or better more. And don't count IPs as devices, the only correct measurement is to count MAC-addresses, because of using different subnets and mobile devices. A switch from one to another network adds more leases for every connected device and the limit of 50 IPs is quickly reached.

                          • Measurements in the reporting when downloaded in kbps

                            Good day, I have clients that needs to send reports through to their managers and departments in regards to the usage of the users. When you look at the reports on the UTM it shows it in MB and GB and when you download the report it only supplies the same values in kbps. We would like it to so show the report in the same measurements as the UTM show them.

                            Logging & reporting > Web Protection > users (traffic shown in MB & GB)
                            When report is to be downloaded as PDF it changes and shows kbps.

                              I would like the Crashdumps that save in /var/storage/cores automatic removed or to only contain x2 current and not retained until the StorageVolume is full as this crashes the router as we have seen on a number of occasions.

                              • Blink LEDs to identify master node in HA

                                It would be nice to have a convenient way of identifying which hardware is the master in an HA cluster. A button in the GUI that would cause the LEDs to flash would be a simple way to do this. Having this would help diagnose physical layer issues without having to check each UTM in the rack.

                                    Using this MS TN article as an example https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb332342(v=exchg.150).aspx , it would be great if we could make a bulk import of exceptions via CSV, or if there was a clearly-documented process for doing a bulk import via the shell.

                                      • Configuration status restored email alerts

                                        We would like to see an email alert when connectivity is restored after an Internet or power outage. Currently we get an email when SMTP configuration status check fails, but not one for when it is restored and spooled email is being released.

                                        • Request for the email appliance to be able to block emails without any body

                                          Request for the email appliance to be able to block emails without any body. Currently, there is no policy to be able to block emails without anything in the body section.
