    You really need a way to restart individual Wireless Access Points without having to reboot the whole gateway. Thanks.

    • I want to have feature which can allow us to exempt emails with specific headers in reflexion.

      I want to have feature which can allow us to exempt emails with specific headers in reflexion. Like Is there a way we can whitelist emails with headers? For example, I want if an email has “X-ExclaimerHostedSignatures-MessageProcessed” in header should not treated as spam and should be always delivered to inbox.

        It would be great if a new feature can be added to application control for Apple App News.

        • Sandstorm Activity tab show SMTP results too

          The Sandbox Activity tab is designed to show web events that triggered Sandstorm, however my customer would also like it to show SMTP information too (like it does in the Mail Manager)

          • Stop updating SSL VPN client without incrementing the program version

            Hello, the Sophos VPN client for Windows has received several updates already since UTM version 9.4 rolled out. However, in each case the program version has remained at 2.1 which makes it extremely difficult for us to script out updating the clients on our users computers. In addition, not incrementing the program version is considered very poor practice in software development.

            Can you increase the product version each time you update the client (EG 2.2, 2.3, ETC) or at least add a sub-version/buildnumber (EG 2.1.100, 2.1.101)?

            • Improve User and VPN-Config Management of UTM!

              Everyone who needs to maintain hundrets of users on a UTM pleas read and vote:

              To import hundrets of remote authenticated (LDAP) or local Users to UTM is a pain! The only way is to hire a dozen of students to hack the users into the system. Then you can "bulk-download" users vpnconfig via webadmin. Have anyone tried to mark more then 25 users to download the config or delete the userobjects? On my SG430 no chance. I think many of you knows of the message: "script is running for more then 30 s - it is possible we do…

                    • Provide support for Wildcard Digital Certificates for User Portal

                      We have been told by Sophos Support that the UTM will not present the intermediate CA (Digicert Wildcard Certificate). Please provide support so we can use our existing wildcard certificate with the user portal. There is an unsupported workaround, but it does not persist through a reboot.

                      • Sophos Puremessage Exchange installation as Exchange Admin

                        To install Sophos Puremessage for Exchange you have to be Domain Admin. In a bigger Windows Domain with seperate groups for Exchange and Windows Adminstration, it can be very complicated to install Puremessage for Exchange, as you always need a Domain-Admin. It would be more easy if the Exchange-Admingroup can install/upgrade Sophos Puremessage.

                        • Unattended installation Sophos Puremessage

                          It would be useful to install Sophos Puremessage for Exchange unattended. If you have a bigger Exchange Installation with several MBX-Server it is very annoying to upgrade.

The fields doesn't except decimal places. If you set the value to be entered in minutes 1 day would be 1440 minutes and 5 days would be 7200 minutes. This way if a customer wants to set the bounce queue lifetime to 1/2 day they would just set…

                              • SNMP: Site-to-Site connection Status

                                It would be great to actively monitor (pull) the status of Site-to-Site connections via snmp to include this in the monitoring system.

                                Additionally the ability to simply turn a Site-to-Site connection on/off via snmp would help a lot too.

                                • WAF: Enable TLS protocol selection, support Server 2003

                                  UTM WAF helps protect older and weaker servers, but only if it can connect to them. OpenSSL does not handshake properly with Server 2003 for reasons that I cannot fully explain. Based on SSL Labs test reports, the problem is mostly unique to OpenSSL clients. However, the connection works perfectly if you prevent OpenSSL from attempting a TLS1.2 connection (e.g. openssl s_client -connect server:443 -no_tls1_2) Please provide protocol selectivity so that the WAF connection to a "Real" (internal) web server can be configured to match what that webserver can accept.

                                      • dynamic response to Intrusion Prevention detection

                                        UTM already knows how to block IPs that perform port scanning: why not to block also attackers as soon as Intrusion Prevention detect them ? (this way, also unknown attack packets are dropped imediately). I noticed detections are very often 4 or 5 types only, but I exclude exploiting tools try only 5 types. IP should be banned for a customizable timeout ... like 5 minutes to 4 hours: if the attacked ip (or firewalled ip-range) doesn't answer, they surely go elsewhere. Thank you

                                        • two dhcp relay

                                          Second DHCP relay address was implemented in other brands yet in '90. Why it is not implemented here ?
                                          Thank you
