Sophos Ideas

Do you have an idea for Sophos UTM? Do you recognize a good idea when you see one? We want to hear from you!

I suggest you ...

WAN-Bonding

Please implement the posibility to bond WAN-lines. Free FW-Appliances like pfSense are able to do that. Why not Sophos?

At home (my testing area, before I implement new confs in the company FWs) I have two ISPs. UnityMedia with 125/4 MBit and Telekom with 100/40 MBit. Only with an UTM it's not possible to bond the lines, so that I can use the full bandwith of both lines.
Momentary I've solved that by putting a pfSense-appliance between the IPS-modems and the UTM. So I reach speeds like 223/44 MBit.
But... why use an other appliance between ISP-lines and UTM? Why isn't it possible that the UTM can manage that?

At our main office we also have 2 ISP-lines. So it would be also interresting for our FullGuard-UTM' to use the full bandwith of both lines.

        Hi All, i can´t understand what you want? The SG / UTM Devices have Uplink Balacing, an Multipath Rules. Use use it on serveral customers, which have up to four different ISPs and it works great.

        When pfsense could this, it shouldn't be a Great Problem for Sophos to implement this Feature! I would like it!

        Habe mir den Text von Google übersetzen lassen. Ich fände das auch sehr gut. Wir haben auch 2 Leitungen. Ein bündeln wäre sehr schön.
