        • Network Security: Create firewall rule(s) directly from Live Log

          In order to make fine tuning of our product packet filter configuration easier, we should add a way to create packet filter rules with a small wizard so that if i see any packet that i want to explicitly drop or allow i can start a mini-wizard that helps to create a matching packet filter rule by either selecting existing definition objects or offering an easy way to create new definition objects, which later than get used in the pf rule..

          • Mailsecurity: Prevent admin from downloading mails

            Even though I'm the admin of our groupware-server, I cannot read e-mails of other employees (unless they themselves gave me proxy-rights to their mail-account or shared one of their mailfolders with me). But I can download all e-mails which were put in quarantine. German law prohibits employees (including admins) from reading other people's mails. You could be jailed if you do so.
            I would like to have the mail download feature disabled. Even better if mails were stored in an encrypted format an the ASGs hard drive, to make it impossible for admins to read other people's mails.

            • VOIP Security: Customizable SIP port

              Some VOIP providers use a non standard SIP port number. I also imagine some companies using VOIP would like to use a non standard SIP port number given the chance.

              The request is to allow the port that the SIP service monitors to be changed from the default port of 5060.

                    • Network Protection: Bind VoIP Proxy to Interface

                      It would be useful if the VoIP proxy was able to be assigned to a particular interface. If I have an internal VoIP server, it may not be on the same address as my default gateway, so it would be useful to assign another gateway interface instead of using policy based routing.

                      • Backup: Partial Backup/Restore

                        Allow a user to create and restore backup files that contain only parts of the configuration.. users would be able to selectivly make use of various parts of the configuration in other firewalls, allowing for easier rollout of multi-site locations. As well, they can restore only parts of a backup file that are required, thus allowing for faster recovery and without affecting all areas of the box.

                        • Networking: Block/Blacklist IP Globally

                          A method is needed to quickly add an IP address or range to a "Deny Access" list.

                          Currently you have to create a new network definition for each bad host and then drag and drop it on a group that is used to deny access. The number of entries in the network definition page can therefore get very large.

                          There are several possible ways of implementing this:

                          1. Have a "Deny Access" tab under Network Security that contains a group definition for denied hosts or IP ranges to which you can quickly add entries.

                          2. Add a new type of…

                              We're talking about incoming VPN sessions & what IP address is assigned to that session. What does it matter? If you can assign the session an IP address within your subnet - this makes life easy for everybody. (i.e. peole can map network drives from home) In v7.4, as long as the Astaro is NOT functioning as your DHCP server - you can point remote access VPN session to your internal DHCP server for an assignment. (i.e. this mean people can map drives) However, 90% of my customers (after spending big $ on Astaro) want the Astaro controlling DHCP (and…

                                  There are still a many customers out there which use POP3 Mailboxes. If a customer want's to connect these POP3 mailboxes to an internal Microsoft Exchange server, they always need to purchase an add-on tool which needs to be licensed on a per user basis. The tool downloads the POP3 Emails and forwards them 1:1 to the internal Server via SMTP. Each POP3 Mailbox needs to be configured via server, username and password and an SMTP email address where the email gets forwarded to.. Integrate this add-on feature and minimize the cost and effort needed to install, manage and maintain…

Such as counters, statistics, and usages of the configuration.. Makes the solution more competitive, gives it more usefullness, and make it easier to use by our users.

                                      The Mail Manager should have the ability to forward a message in the quarantine to a specified address. This could be used to correct invalid recipients, and/or "send back" messages to the sender in a sort of crafted bounce.. Provide administrators with more choice in managing mail and messages.

                                      • MailSecurity: Whitelist Per Profile

                                        It should be possible to maintain a sender whitelist per profile (vs just per user in the portal), since we already have such functionality for blacklisting.... Better flexibility and configuration options.

                                        • Web Security: RTSP Support / Skipping

                                          Currently Real Time Streaming Protocol is not able to be properly handled by the proxy (such as apple.mov quicktime keynote speeches). Add a mechanism to either proxy this traffic correctly, or just skip it from the scanning to allow it to operate properly with the client.. Extends the streaming support of our proxy to avoid admins needing to remove users entirely or live with certain sites / streaming not working when the proxy is enabled. Mantis: 0009463
