    • Add a whitelist option for mail attachment

      It would be nice to not only blacklist some mail attachment file types but whitelist only the few ones, who are needed.

      • allow web filtering exceptions to use the referrer field as well as the URL field

        This would enable (for instance) youtube videos to be accessible as long as they were referred from a trusted website.

        • Sandstorm unscannable SMTP exception

          Please add the ability to create unscannable exceptions when sandstorm reports an attachment is unscannable. We've been getting quite a few legitimate messages quarantined when sandstorm scanning fails (cloud based server load?)

          • be able to add wireless SSID to web protection to filter web traffic based on SSID

            in the web protection section of UTM under the allowed networks, we should be able to add SSID's to the allowed networks and then assign web filtering profiles to those SSID's

            • Correct the reporting on the Email Appliance so the presentation is consistent.

              At the moment, reporting has to be done manually because reports cannot be scheduled. The report order changes, so before I import it into my spreadsheet, it has to be reordered. At the moment, ordering is by Total. It would be more efficient if it were ordered in a consistent way, by Type. It would then be easy to simply copy and paste.

              • Output option based on status cord

                We use HTTP proxy AD SSO. When AD SSO is used, httplog is filled with lots of status cord 407. We're pestered with increase of I/O caused by output of status cord 407.

                Because it's AD SSO, it's no doubt to request authentication. It's meaningless to output this in log intentionally. We don't want to output status code 407. So we propose addition of log output option by a status cord.

                • Web Protection: Realtime Per-User Bandwidth Monitor

                  For the purpose of analyzing the current outgoing traffic usage we need a live view of the users’ HTTP connections via the Web Protection proxy along the possibility to sort it by bandwidth.

                      • Display values for antivirus exceptions instead of only slashes - "/"

                        Submitted on Behalf of Client:

                        If we create any endpoint protection exceptions under Endpoint Protection > Antivirus > Exceptions: Every type of exception entry shows and displays a "/" slash. Ideally this should show the value entered in the value field to make it easier to manage.

                        • openvpn 2.4

                          my uses sometime connect but cant access network resources - they try again a couple of hours later and it works

                          the net says there are issues with windows 10 and these are mostly fixed with openvpn version 2.4

                          as version 2.4 has just come out it may be worth waiting until 2.4.5 for any bugs to be fixed but to schedule this into the UTM development pipeline

                          • notification disk going fail

                            There is no Monitor/Notification which would send information for harddisks going to fail in a few days/week. Maybe using S.M.A.R.T.?

                            And there ist no notification about failed single disks, only in RAID like "CRIT-060 Raid degraded: harddisk replacement needed".

                            Please add a notification for single disks (without RAID) in case of failure or a few days earlier.
                            Thank you.

                              • static ip mac binding for one MAC address to different ip address in different zones having different networks

                                We have to configure static ip mac binding for our director's and managers' laptops and mobiles MAC address to ip address in different zones, but we are unable to add one MAC address for different ip addresses in different zones in sophos, which we have configured in earlier firewall sonicwall, but not in Sophos XG(SFOS 16.01). Please, add this new feature in upgraded firmware or generate hotfix for that.

                                • Allow customers to disable the Quick Search

                                  We have over 1k network definitions in the UTM. Every time we need to modify a network definition and begin searching under Network Definitions the browser becomes unresponsive as we start typing the name. I suspect this is due to the number of items that the quick search has to generate. Please allow customers to disable the quick search menus as for larger environments it creates issues.

                                  • Update Web Browser for HTML5 VPN

                                    The HTML5 VPN web browser is Firefox 17.0.

                                    This browser is literally more than 4 years old, at the time of this suggestion. It has many known security vulnerabilities, and is not compatible with a great many newer sites. This absolutely needs to be updated, and kept up-to-date with firmware updates. Using a 4-year-old browser in current firmware is beyond unacceptable.

                                    • Dashboard: Would like to select date range for data displayed.

                                      Many times I would like to see new occurrences for a week or the current month. I have to sort and report my data from events when the Dashboard has everything I need minus the selective date range.

                                      • Remove UTM SSO reliance on insecure SMB 1.0

                                        We disabled SMB 1.0 on our domain for security reasons, and the UTM SSO stopped working.

                                        Apparently the UTM relies on SMB 1.0 and plain text for SSO!

                                        This needs fixing ASAP and support for SMB 2+ enabling.

                                        • Regenerate Webadmin CA !

                                          Hi,

                                          it would be greate if there was a way to Regenerate the Webadmin CA like the VPN CA.
                                          In case the Companyname changes i have no posibility in the UI to recreate the CA for the Webadmin. I can only recreate the Cert for Webadmin which uses the WebadminCA which was created during the Setup.

                                          There seems to be a Solution on the Commandline(last Link) is that a supported way?
