  1. DHCP Duplicate IP Detection

    Have the UTM DHCP server ping the IP address before attempting to issue it like Windows DHCP Server, to avoid an IP conflict. e.g. static address within DHCP scope.

    Currently, if the UTM offers an IP address that already exists on the network the client sends a DHCP Decline, however the UTM will continue attempting to issue the same IP and the client will get stuck in this loop.

    • sophos xg web block page

      In the XG appliance, if a page is blocked, the user should be able to submit a request for access to the local administrator from the block page much like they can in the Sophos Web Appliance. The only submit I see in XG is for the ability to submit directly to Sophos.com. Our users are used to being able to submit directly to the local admin for quick review and reply.

        • Add a QR Code to the Password of the day email

          We have a “Password of the day” Hotspot, where we send the password of the day by email to our teachers. If there would be a possibility to add the password as QR Code, the teachers could project the mail at the beamer and the students could copy the password from there instead of typing it into their Smartphones.

                    • Could not see live VLAN traffic in XG firewall

                      SG series firewall having a good desk-board where we can see all WAN's, LAN's and VLAN's live traffic and bandwidth monitoring and also monitoring usage of bandwidth of individual users. ( We are using ASG220 since last 6 years).
                      After upgrade to XG series firewall with firmware version SFOS 16, GUI is totally different and very difficult to troubleshooting of monitoring of live bandwidth usage of VLAN. There is no way to monitor live VLAN traffic in XG firewall.

                        • remote syslog log selection

                          When new logging types are released by Sophos (e.g. restd) they have to be manually enabled in Logging and Reporting > Remote Syslog Server > Remote Syslog Log Selection even if Select all was previously utilized. Instead, it would be great if Select all was persistent instead of a single-use toggle and those log types were then automatically sent to the remote syslog server upon update.

                          • Quarantine reports are useless with RETURN TO rather than FROM

                            I have reported this in the past... and maybe others are on cruze control or dont care.. or havent seen a REAL quarantine report... but your current QUARANTINE report from the SG box is absolutely useless as it is written. Please take the time to read this instead of just waiting on votes. This is a real problem.

                            Currently the quarantine for both XG and SG units records and shows the mail header field 'RETURN TO' as the FROM address in quarantine and mail log screen. In many cases, this makes the interpretation of those emails impossible prior to releasing…

                            • Add new feature to Sophos UTM VPN that extracts the last login date of users.

                              We have been managing many users on the Sophos VPN. We face a challenge on day to day basis, and that is, we are not able to restrict the users' access who have left the organization or are not anymore, a part of the team and that is primarily because we are not able to track the last login date of users.

                              If you add the new feature to UTM that would extract the last login date of the users, we plan to lock the user's access who have not logged in to the Sophos for a stipulated period of…
