        • WAN Failover Firewall Rules

          We would like to see the ability to create firewall rules that take over if the primary WAN connection fails over to a secondary WAN connection. This would be useful for businesses like ours who has a nice primary connection but a significantly smaller backup connection. For example we let the employees stream media during normal operations however with many streaming if it fails over to the backup WAN connection it causes a huge bottleneck for us.

          • Enable users to reset their domain user password using Web Mail

            There are many companies that force employees to reset domain user passwords very often. Now, when employees need to access mail using their Web Mail and their password has expired they will have to call IT to reset their password, but if working hours has finished and there is no IT personnel in the office, or maybe it's weekend, which is even worse, they will have to wait until next working day so that IT can help. In situation like this, enabling users to reset their domain account password using Web Mail Portal, like Microsoft TMG does, would help.

            • Deliver Complete Certificate Chain for User Portal

              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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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!

                      • Adding option for exception allowing unscannable mail

                        It would sometimes very helpful to have the possibility to create an exception for allowing mail with not scannable attachments while having the global option quarantine unscannable and encrypted content enabled.

                          • 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…

                                        • 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.
