  1. Licensing: Free Home-Use License on ASG Appliances

    Currently it is not possible to use a hardware appliance with a home use license, meaning it is necessary to wipe the device's hard drive and reinstall from the software appliance ISO. I've never been sure of the reason for this restriction - used Astaro hardware is available from sources such as eBay and so is a viable option for home use. It would be great to be able to make full use of the additional hardware appliance features (LCD display on 220s and up, graphic of appliance port activity on dashboard) when running as a home user.

    • AstaroOS: WAN Optimization

      have some kind of packet caching and optimization like the same what Riverbed or BlueCoat does. Instead of my corporate site contains 2 boxes for firewall and packet optimization appliance in each site, this can turn into all in one UTM with ability to have a packet caching mechanism. It will be speed up overall WAN usage and using bandwidth efficiency.

        • AstaroOS: Software RAID1 support (Drive mirroring via MD)

          I would like to be able to hard drive mirroring in software as I'm able to do on other GNU/Linux distributions such that if either drive fails I can boot from the working drive and rebuild the mirror on a replacement.

                    • WebAdmin: Display User License Counts on Appliances/Unlimited

                      Currently, there is a functionality in Management->Licensing->Active IP Addresses that enables only (ASG software appliances) to get current IP address usage.

                      If you are using an Appliance with unlimited licensing, this info is not being shown. It could be good to monitor usage for current and past values for this.

                      Regards.

                        • Configuration Best-Practices Auditor

                          I have seen a lot of ASG systems out there, which have use a insecure or not (possible) optimal configuration in ASG. Some other manufacturers will bring up while configuration already a warning, when a setting may affect system security.

                          It would be nice to have a possibility to start a basic system configuration checker, which will check the configuration against some "best practice" recommendations and generate a little audit report with found issues, a small explanation and a recommendation to make it better.

                          Issues could be (to list some...)
                          - inappropriate configured proxies with access from ANY networks
                          -…

                            • Unattended installation via config file

                              For documentation and compliance reasons it would be helpful, if we could install an UTM Device in an unattended way by simply edit an config file (like an unattended.xml file for Windows Server) Doing so, we can copy this file into our documentation and typing errors are avoided. It would be great, if this answer file could be located in a virtual floppy or an existing virtual harddisk, because we use the utm in a virtual enviroment.
                              Many thanks, Thorsten Raucamp

                                • Switch from using ISC DHCP to WIDE-DHCPv6 for IPv6 connections.

                                  My idea is to switch to using WIDE-DHCPv6 for IPv6 connections.

                                  One of the major reasons is that currently, The ISC DHCP client does not allow you set a IA_PD prefix and you must go with your ISP Default.

                                  One example is Comcast a major US ISP hands out /64s by default but you can request a /60 if your client supports a custom IA_PD prefix. This is not possible currently with the ISC DHCP Client.

                                    • WebAdmin: Search within Ranges for a Port

                                      In older versions (<7) you were able to search through service definitions that covered a particular range of ports for a port within that range. Now you can't -- you can only search for the end points of the range.

                                      For example, traceroute is defined as 33000-34000.

                                      Search for 33000, it works.
                                      Search for 34000, it works.
                                      Search for 33001, it doesn't.

                                      • Support virtual machines under Oracle Virtualbox

                                        Virtualbox fills the void left by the eol of Vmware Server. It is available for free and allows for the creation of test environments under various operating systems. It seems to be gaining in popularity and most linux version offer Virtualbox Guest Additions either on the installation media or within their update channels.
