SSL VPN: Convert .ovpn to .apc/.epc for Site-to-Site SSL Tunnels
Please make a tool to conver regular openvpn configuartion files to your apc/epc format. Without such a tool it is impossible to use an astaro as client for existing openvpn server.
... or instead of making a converter which may have to make too many decisions allow to use ovpn files.
Maybe in a first step with fewer options ?! Don't know if that might help.
Got some customers with OpenVPN Access Servers and/or virtual appliances. Would be great to interconnect complete Networks to them with UTM as openvpn client.

This hurts so badly !
SSL is there but not usable, when I want to connect to gateways other than sophos.
I can't believe, we paid that much money for it.
Should have used an opensource product - most of these do it for free ...
Shame on Sophos ! :(

Das ist schon traurig...1220 Votes seit 2010 und Sophos ist nicht im Stande einen Converter zur Verfügung zu stellen... ich hatte inzwischen bei 4! Kunden das Problem das openVPN nativ gebraucht wurde da nur ein .ovpn File vom Lieferanten kam. Etwas Peinlich...
bump- yes please
You know what, try switching to something like pfSense: https://www.pfsense.org/
They have physical appliances, virtual ones, AWS images.. etc.. the UI might not be as cool as the old Astaro one, but they actually care about the product and maintain it well.

Please for the love of God add this!

I'd not have thought that this would be missing.
Loving various aspects of UTM - getting confused by others - but just flabbergasted that this is absent...
Why is this missing feature not implemented in the Sophos UTM?
Just tried Sophos for home use, found this feature missing, moving on to something else. You really need to add this in.
hey Mickey.. if you need any help with that, send me a note: firstname.lastname@example.org
I used StrongSWAN and have updated it several times and entirely replaced all our Astaro/Sophos VM's doing IPSec VPN with this.

Finally making the switch from sophos to an open-source solution.
With all the state sponsored interception stuff going on and the fact that sophos cant pull of something as simple as a non-proprietary openvpn client option, there's no reason to keep me using sophos.
So begins the migration to a better network.

Crazy that you can't import OpenVPN files into UTM or convert them.
Please just drop the proprietary format.
This is insane that so many people have asked for this for over 5 years and yet Sophos hasn't even given a response....I use sophos at my house but it looks like for my work this is a required feature......so I guess we will be looking some where else. Unfortunate because I like Sophos.
Giving up on Astaro because of this missing feature. Really need to be able to connect a cloud server into our environment with a consistent IP address. Not possible as it stands now.
Noticed that it isn't specifically a config file conversion. Looks like Astaro is using some sort of helper shared object that likely isn't compatible.
In any case, it needs to happen. I could convert all my sites to astero, but not my cloud networks that I need to tunnel as well.
I've switched years ago to just plain StrongSWAN which is what Astaro uses anyway. If you want help with that, email me: email@example.com
