  1. iftop

    Need to have the iftop command to diagnoze bandwith usage.
    The current "live connection" view is too limited in sorting.

    • Firmware-Fallback

      After the momentary dissaster with 9.410 (and 9.411) it would be great to have the possiblility to switch back to the latest working version without any factory-reset.
      Two different partitions. If the update goes wrong, switch back to the functionaly version.

        • Deinstall antivirus software / tool

          Need to have a deinstall antivirus tool in order to resolve most of the issues when reinstalling the product, for example MSI error or Autoupdate component corrupt.
          At least would be very appreciate a check tool that checks if all the antivirus software components are installed properly and could advise you if something miss from your system.

              • Customising user messages from the UTM appliance

                Currently there is facility to customise error pages including content blocking and warning, downloading, authentication and error messages. However, when accessing sites that have certificate problems (expired, incorrectly named, etc) the error page is the basic out-of-the-box page. It would be nice to be able to customise this page as well.

                In fact the UTM message pages are pretty good in them selves, it would just be nice to be able to change just the header and footer separately.

                • Rewrite URL for URL Shortening services

                  Rewrite URL shortening service URLs to force redirect mode, which is visible to the user and to UTM, instead of allowing transparent proxy mode, which is invisible to both. Longer commentary at this community forum entry.

                  • Issue: Client IP in Sophos UI does not update when client IP changes

                    VLAN 14 Returned by RADIUS Server:

                    Calling-Station-Id = "00-27-10-6F-60-04"

                    Tunnel-Type:0 += VLAN

                    Tunnel-Medium-Type:0 += IEEE-802

                    Tunnel-Private-Group-Id:0 += "14"

                    Confirmed Test Client has IP in VLAN 14:

                    wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:27:10:6f:60:04

                    inet addr:10.100.14.130 Bcast:10.100.14.255 Mask:255.255.255.0

                    Wireless client in Sophos UI shows VLAN 14 IP:

                    *Client is then disconnected and reconnects (new VLAN will be assigned)

                    VLAN 15 Returned by RADIUS Server:

                    Calling-Station-Id = "00-27-10-6F-60-04"

                    Tunnel-Type:0 += VLAN

                    Tunnel-Medium-Type:0 += IEEE-802

                    Tunnel-Private-Group-Id:0 += "15"

                    Confirmed Test Client has IP in VLAN 15:

                    wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:27:10:6f:60:04

                    inet addr:10.100.15.240 Bcast:10.100.15.255 Mask:255.255.255.

                    Wireless client in Sophos UI still shows VLAN 14 IP…

                    • Add MAC Authentication for Open SSID

                      I think it would be a good idea to add MAC Authentication as an option for open SSIDs. This allows a device that is unable to configure a supplicant to authenticate via RADIUS using the devices MAC address as the username and password. With Meraki, Aruba, Aerohive and others this typically shows up as MAC Authentication, MAC-based access control, etc.

                      • RADIUS Change of Authorization (CoA)

                        Please add support for RADIUS Change of Authorization (CoA).

                        The use case is we are attempting to perform a RADIUS Change of Authorization (CoA) for wireless clients connected to an AP managed by the XG. With Cisco, Meraki, Aruba, Aerohive and others this typically shows up as "rfc-3576" support in the UI.

                        It would allow the XG wireless controller to accept a RADIUS CoA packet (typically sent on UDP port 3799) from a RADIUS server to disconnect a client so it can receive a new RADIUS attribute from the RADIUS server.

                          The user portal in the UTM is not able to deliver the complete certificate chain. It is missing intermediate certificate due to which our VPN Portal is categorized B on online SSL Testing websites.

                              Many customers have non-Sophos APs but would like to use some Wireless Protection feature. Therefore it would be nice if a small choice of Wireless Protection features were available for non-Sophos APs.

                                • Add RADIUS Accounting Export to External RADIUS Server

                                  There is already an option in the UI to enable accounting when configuring a RADIUS server, but I was informed by support that that feature is not supported. Auth work fine on 1812, but accounting on 1813 is never sent. We need to be able to send accounting to the external RADIUS server. For reference, the ticket is RE: [#7150365] Web support query. Thanks!

                                        this function if it were implemented would help a lot my work and the protection of remote desktop users.

                                        • rulechecks sslvpn clients

                                          We would like restrictions to be checked on when sslvpn clients are connecting towards the network.

                                          For example if someone is running a specific service, the network connection is allowed, and otherwise not. or for exampe, if there is no anti-virus running from a specific vendor.
