  1. Networking: Bandwidth / Traffic Quota

    Add the ability for administrators to specify bandwidth limits for users and IP addresses in regards to how much they can consume during a certain time period, certain hard limit, or on a certain service/proxy.. Gives the option to control bandwidth usage on the AxG so that admins can better manage their internet connection and control overusage and heavy users, especially during certain times.

    • Networking: Full DNS Server

      It would be nice if Astaro could be used as a fully-functional DNS server with backward look up zones and all.
      At the moment SOHO networks with no internal DNS server are unable to perform reverse DNS and other features.

      • Networking: Add IGMP proxy

        Implement a simpe IGMP proxy so that IPTV at least from T-Home Entertain can be received. This is different from standard Multicast as it only to pass the asg and not dynamically communicate or register with other multicast servers

        • Networking: Local Radius Server on ASG

          Cause small offices (planning offices, Laywers, etc.) are not using a windows server AD but like to use WLAN (cause there´s no cabeling needed) a local radius server would be helpful (i.e. available on Linksys Routers with TinyPEAP or via DD-WRT) to authentificate the users with a central security. So a local user database is still on the ASG. Why not implement an optional radius server instead of pointing to a local one on a windows server?

          • Networking: QoS For VPN Traffic

            Allow for Quality of Service rules to be created that apply to VPN traffic of roadwarrior and site-site.. Allows for better management of traffic limits and gives admins the ability to guarantee and control bandwidth across VPN's. Perhaps part of a V8 Revamp of QoS?

            • Networking: Integrated Wake on LAN Service

              Add the wake on lan functionality. Provide the possibility to create a table (INTERFACE | MAC ADDRESS | DESCRIPTION ) where we can store the mac address of hosts to wake up. Also, the wake up command can be scheduled or manually executed.

              • Multipath: Allow WAN1 to burst to WAN2

                Astaro must have the ability to allow traffic to burst over to a second WAN link when the primary WAN link is saturated or reaches a defined maximum of traffic amount in a day/week/month. We currently have options to failover traffic depending on source, destination, and interface. What we need is another category for bandwidth utilization.

                • Networking: DHCP & Dynamic DNS Updater

                  It would be nice to add to the DHCP and DNS the ability to register dynamically on the local DNS zone the name of the machine and IP address that have just be assigned by the DHCP server.

                  • Networking: Wildcard Hostnames for DNS Group Definitions

                    being able to specify a 'root' domain name, or pattern, as a network definition, that could then be used in a traffic selector for bandwidth shaping, would help greatly. content delivery networks use hundreds of hostnames, but usually stick with one 'root', example: 'something.nflximg.com' or 'something.llnwd.net' by specifying something like "*.llnwd.net' as the source, we could then limit the traffic as desired.

                        • VPN: Support zeroconf / avahi / bonjour

                          Given that Astaro's VPN mechanism creates non-bridged subnets, it'd be incredibly useful for networks with a large number of Macs particularly to have Wide-Area Bonjour (i.e. Avahi or Zeroconf) built into ASG's DNS server.

                          • Networking: Enhanced Link Aggregation (LAG) Modes Support

                            Using the middleware (cc CLI) it is already possible to set link-aggregation to a different mode than the default mode 4 (802.3ad).
                            We would appreciate to see all other modes becoming an official part of the Web GUI:
                            - mode 0 (balance-rr)
                            - mode 1 (active/backup)
                            - mode 2 (balance-xor)
                            - mode 3 (balance-broadcast)
                            - mode 5 (balance-tlb)
                            - mode 6 (balance-alb)

                                  • Networking: Support multiple DHCP relays

                                    In many PXE environments, it is normal to get regular DHCP from one host and BOOTP DHCP from another. This works fine as long as the client machines are in the same network as the DHCP servers, but will not work from the GUI.

                                    Can already do this at the CLI:
                                    chroot /var/chroot-dhcps/ /usr/sbin/dhcrelay -i if1 -i if2 dhcp-server
                                    if1 = interface 1
                                    if2 = interface 2
                                    More can most likely be added.
                                    dhcp-server = new DHCP server you need access to in addition to the one already specified in the GUI.

                                    • Networking: IPv6 DHCP Interfaces

                                      One of my ISPs has begun offering IPv6 addresses through DHCP to capable connected systems. This currently doesn't work with UTM as the Cable Modem (DHCP) interface type only supports IPv4 addressing.

                                      It would be nice if a DHCP type interface could be configured which could pull an IPv6 address.

                                      • Networking: Tester tool for how a packet will flow through the UTM

                                        Inject a virtual packet into the security appliance and track the flow from ingress to egress. Along the way, the packet is evaluated against flow and route lookups, ACLs, protocol inspection, NAT, and IDS

                                        • Networking: Live monitoring of QoS rules

                                          It can be difficult to tune the QoS rules effectively unless there is greater visibility on how they are influencing traffic. The live traffic monitor is very handy, and it would be even better if we knew how the QoS rules we put in place are actually operating on the live connections. Perhaps give us the ability to monitor bandwidth, shaping and throttling on a per QoS rule basis.

                                          This is more of an issue with highly contended SOHO & Mum/Dad ADSL internet connections, where throughput guarantees are not applicable when compared to genuine business class internet connections, but it…
