  1. remotely reboot a red device

    It would be handy if you could use the UTM console to reboot a remote ethernet device (RED). Right now always someone on the other side is needed in case a RED needs a power cycle.

    • Help Devices Make Better Roaming Decision

      It would be great if we could make an access point not let a device connect if it's too far away (-70 RSSI or weaker signal), especially if there is another AP that is closer by to the device.

      I'd also like to see 802.11k supported to help devices roam quicker

      • Allow the use of Managed Service Accounts in AD

        When using a normal Active Directory account for the installation and remote management of Sophos Endpoint client, if the account password is changed machines using the old password will lock the account out in AD if lockout policies are applied. The account used for this has to be a member of the local administrators group on each client so it can install itself, therefore a lot of companies just add the sophos service account into domain admins group. If we could install using a managed service account, AD controls the password changing, and nobody ever needs to know what that…

                        • 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.

                          • 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.

                              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.

                                      • dns.he.net DDNS support.

                                        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.

                                        • 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.
