  1. Support packet fragmentation for packets arriving from internet that will be crossing an IPSec VPN tunnel

    Currently packets >1500 bytes from our ISP connected to a UTM (v 9.404-5) are accepted and fragmented for traffic destined to a LAN. However, packets > 1500 bytes from the internet that will cross an IPSec tunnel (also terminating on the UTM) to reach a remote network are rejected with the UTM sending an ICMP fragmentation needed.

    If the UTM will accept jumbo packets and fragment for the LAN, it should do the same for traffic to networks across a VPN tunnel.

    See case 6142979 for additional details.

    • Allow the ability to edit Scheduled Operations in the Sophos Gateway Manager

      Currently, to change a scheduled operation in the SUM Gateway manager, you have to delete the schedule and recreate it entirely. It would be nice to be able to simply edit the operation.

        • The HTML5 VPN Portal should have a Wake On LAN feature when connecting to a PC over RDP

          The HTML5 VPN Portal should have a Wake On LAN feature when connecting to a PC over RDP. This would enable power savings to be turned on while providing users with the ability to remotely wake and connect to their PCs/Servers over the network (say for a standby environment).

            • SSL VPN reconfiguration

              SSL s2s VPN. There are seted up for branchs it’s own Server instance. And I faced strange behavior. After I reconfigure any server instance (for example add local network), EVERY SSL s2s VPN tunnels goes down and after some time it reconnect again.

              Regular OpenVPN server can work without that issue! So I believe that Sophos too.

              • 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.

                • WAN ipv6 6rd on XG or UTM 9 or both

                  6RD is added on the Sophos XG for IP Tunneling, but the way the ISP's set it up, this should be an option under WAN:ipv6:6RD where you could fill in the ISPs details: 6rd prefix, prefix length, mask length, ipv4 border router address and ipv6 DNS.

                  • prompt for credentials when using NLA with HTML5 VPN Portal

                    Instead of having to enter static credentials in the Admin Portal for RDP connections with NLA, the user should be prompted for their credentials when using the connection. Having static credentials doesn't make sense when only admins can enter them (meaning the admin has to know everyone's credentials) and passwords are changed on a regular basis (meaning the admin has to update the password on every connection every x days).

                            In particular, I am very interested in allow a particular user to manipulate the web filtering rules but without giving that user access to any other part of the firewall's configuration.

                              • Firewall Rules Packet Simulator

                                A UTM Wizard or Tool that would run a Simulation of a defined Packet through the configured Firewall Rules.
                                The Wizard would require the following:
                                1) SourceIP
                                2) SourcePort
                                3) DestinationIP
                                4) DestinationPort
                                5) Protocol (ie. tcp or udp)
                                6) Interface that the packet reaches the UTM (Outside, Inside, DMZ)
                                The simulator will then test this packet against all the configured firewall rules, and report a final "Allowed" or "Denied", giving the reason for the Deny.

                                  It would be nice to finally have the Sophos SG o XG virtual appliance available on the Azure Marketplace.
                                  Currently the only firewall solutions on Azure are Barracuda and Fortinet...Why Sophos is not present on Azure? Are there some technical issues preventing this?

                                    One of the best FREE DDNS providers that also supports IPv6.
                                    There is allready he.net IPv6 tunnel support in UTM. But dns.he.net is still missing from supported providers.

                                    • SSLVPN Client logfile lotate

                                      When SSL VPN has connected, the client logfile is overwritten by new connection.

                                      It is necessary to move the logfile manually before a new connection in order to confirm the last connection logfile.

                                      I do not want to overwrite the client logfile.
                                      Or I want to rotate the logfile so that can confirm the past log.

                                        Implement the ability to create multiple E-Mail recipience for various UTM Notifications

                                        Depending on Roles it would be greate to create different Notifiction selections.

                                        • Cache Intermediate HTTPS issuer certificates

                                          When browsing to poorly configured web sites that don't provide a complete certificate chain, the UTM certficate validation will block the site as untrusted.

                                          Browsers can work around these poorly-configured servers by caching intermediate issuer certificates from well-behaved servers.

                                          Let site A and site B have certificates issued by intermediate issuer Z. Site A provides the full chain, site B is badly configured and does not.

                                          If a user browses to site B first, the browser will issue a security warning because it can't find the issuer certificate to validate the certificate chain.

                                          If a user browses to site A,…
