  1. add an option to enable or disable split tunneling for SSL VPN profiles

    SSL VPN profiles is a cool feature which allows to differentiate between e.g. admins and homeoffice users. But there is an option missing in these profiles to enable or disable split tunneling. An Admin who knows what he is doing could be allowed for split tunneling but a homeoffice user instead who would work via ssl vpn and potentially also browse to infested websites could be disallowed for split tunneling. The global way with the "any" setting for the local server address is not enough. Additionally the setting shouldn't be overrideable on client side.

    • Provide a DC Authentication Agent

      Have an agent which polls Active Directory Domain Controllers for user logon events to determine which user is logged onto each machine. This would allow for all users on the domain to be authenticated without requiring any settings on their machines. There would need to be an option to exclude logon events for service accounts.

      • HTML5 VPN Portal: Support for Windows RDSH Servers which are member of a RDSH Farm using a RDSH Broker

        Sophos UTM 9.201-23 does not allow you to publish a Windows RDSH Server Farm using the HTML5 VPN Portal. The vast majority of our users would only need access to the RDSH Farm and therefore would never need to install a VPN Client if the HTML5 VPN Portal could handle using Remote Desktop Protocol to a Windows Remote Desktop Session Host Farm. The initial login screen loads without issues. However, as soon as the user successfully logs in, the connection redirection to a different member of the farm breaks the connection. The HTML5 VPN Portal is not understanding that the…

        • spx portal should not use webadmin certificate

          When answering an E-Mail through the SPX Portal an certificate error occurs. And it seems that the WebAdmin certificate is used.
          It would be better when you could upload an custom certificate

          • automatic block incoming TOR clients dynamic, means every traffic from tor to my webmail should be blocked

            Hello,

            it would be really fine if we can block all incoming TOR and anonymous VPN clients. This should be possible for all incoming connections.

            a list of exit nodes are here:
            https://check.torproject.org/exit-addresses

            this list should be "imported" automatic scheduled.
            for now, there is an option "block clients with bad reputation" for webserver protection, but this is not working (using latest firmware )
            Firmware version: 9.209-8
            Pattern version: 69668

            thats it

            • system auto update in email appliance

              this is the request from Platinum customer. They would like to be able to disable the auto update in Configuration > System > Updates, so they will have more control on the system version.

                  • RAM Usage in percentage

                    I would be able to use SNMP to monitor the RAM Usage in percentage, as displayed in the UTM Web GUI. With the current OIDs I can get only some basic values for system memory and I need the (exact) value for the RAM Usage in percentage.

                    • Mail Protection: Expand SPX configuration options

                      I'd like the new SPX encryption included with UTM 9.2 to include expanded configuration options such as:

                      -Keyword (custom expression) filtering on body, subject and addresses as independent rules (not one custom expression for the entire message, IE using ENCRYPT in the subject gets picked up but I don't want the word ENCRYPT to be picked up in the body)

                      -The ability to encrypt all emails sent outbound to a specific domain

                      -The ability to bypass encryption filters for recipient domains where TLS exists

                      -The always popular User Registration Portal to manage passwords, secure reply, add attachments, etc. I understand…

                        • extend the expression filter in smtp proxy to search in mail headers.

                          In pre-filtered environments the previous mail server may alter some mail header to signal spam levels.
                          Currently UTM doesn't use this information.
                          Only a string check on the mail body/subject is possible.

                              • List what Content Control Lists Rule triggered an email alert

                                It would be nice if the "Notification regarding potentional leak of data" email sent to administrators would list what Content Control Lists Rule triggered the alert.

                                I have my UTM set to allow the email but alert me when content is suspected to have been confidential. I was hoping to use the alerts to help decide what rules are going to be useful in my environment but without an indication of what triggered the alert the message is not very useful.

                                It also appears that "potential" is spelled wrong in the subject line.

                                  • Remote uninstall / shutdown

                                    Sophos should include a feature to allow an administrator to remotely shutdown or uninstall the client from the enterprise console. Most other enterprise AVs have such a feature. It isn't always easy to walk to every machine or obtrusively RDP into a workstation. The process should mirror installing through the enterprise console, silently and remotely.
