  1. WebAdmin: Packet Filter Group Editing

    Allow the adjustment/editing of the packet filter groups. Currently it is not possible to edit/change the color, edit the name, delete a group, and otherwise work with this feature.. Allows more polish of this area by completing the abilities, allowing for better management of pf rules as a result of having better group customization.

              • Framework: Online License Sync/Update from WebAdmin

                Add the ability for within WebAdmin that the Administrator can retrieve/synchronize his license from the myastaro DB without having to do a manual download/import such as he does now.. Simplifies licensing, and shortens the time needed to add/edit/update the keys, while providing increased management, especially to partners.

                • Central Configuration Storage in HA Scenario

                  In Astaro HA scenario, when web proxy is enabled, there are configuration discrepancies between the active and passive nodes. Though we advise users not to put proxy IP address or exclude Firewall IP while doing WebAdmin, it is still a good idea to have a Configuration Master.

                  • Web Protection: Regular Expression (REGEX) Filtering of Content (ASG V6-style)

                    For those of us who can't rely on the high miss rate of URL filtering, or who need to implement their own parameters, please allow local "regular expression" scanning of web content. It is possible to express patterns that are effective and not over-blocking. Options to include page block, pattern substitution, etc

                    • Email Encryption: PGP Delivery Options

                      It should be possible to deliver the PGP public key for a user via either a send-key button, download it from the portal, or otherwise make possible to distribute a users key once it is created, in some sort of automated, self-serve fashion.. Eases PGP encryption adoption.

                        • WebSecurity: HTTP/S MIME-Type Whitelist

                          As is possible with Mail Security, add the ability to the exceptions tab to "exempt" certain mime types from filtering.. Allows for MIME types to be removed from filtering and scanning to increase compatability with perhaps streaming we do not support natively, and balances the feature offerings with the mail security choices.

                          • Reporting: Configuration Adjustments via Reports

                            Provide the administrator with the ability to make changes to the security policy by interacting with a report. Popular example would be to allow white & blacklisting of site URL's and email addresses by indicating entries on a report, and selecting an "action".. As most reporting is viewed to determine usage and activity, followed by adjustments to the configuration as needed, by embedding some of this functionality in the reports it saves the need to write down or print information and then manually add to the necessary sites.

                            • Authentication: Improved LDAP browser

                              Implement a LDAP browser, that can be used to configure eDirectory, Active Directory and LDAP. Since V7 Astaro includes an LDAP browser for eDirectory. As more and more users use AD we should create a generic LDAP browser to show the complete AD tree and enable the admin to browse and select users/groups using drag'n'drop similar or identical to eDir.. The admin of an AD gets the same benefit as eDir users by massivly improve the timeconsuming and error-prone writing of LDAP DN to specify users and groups

                              • MailSecurity: Automatically Add Domains

                                With mail hosting MSP's and others that make use of multiple domains (hundreds even thousands) on their ASG or AMG, it would be nice if they could just input a nameserver which would then resolve the configured domains and add them to the SMTP proxy vs having to enter them each time.. Allows for easier adoption and addition of many email domains, for those customers in this space.

                                • Reporting: Backup / Export of On-Box Reports

                                  Allow for the backing up of the reporting data, similiar to the executive report. Also add the ability for this backup to be sent daily/weeky/monthly via pdfs and the other nuances of the existing system, in addition to being able to be downloaded directly from WebAdmin on demand.. Gives admins the ability to backup their reporting information, which is currently not possible.

                                  • Email Protection: Will also check links within emails

                                    A lot of emails come in that a technically 'clean' but have links that would take users to a compromised site. This generates support calls (people saying o this is a virus etc...), and makes the email checker 'appear' not to be doing its job. This approach would *alot more sense* to the client, than arguing that a link becomes the job of surf protect / browser protection etc...

                                      • Web Protection: Different pages for "no route to host" or "connection timeout"

                                        When customers see a message from the UTM they blame the UTM, even if the error is due to upstream network problems or the server's service provider.

                                        Allowing customization of error pages will reduce the number of support calls that are caused by end-users thinking there's something wrong with the UTM.

                                        • need a Health Summary - summary of errors from all areas of UTM

                                          A summary of all errors would help to identify deficiency in rules, conflicts after multiple rounds of firmware updates, etc.
