  3. ssmtp

    I would like the appliance to send emails securely. That is, I could use ssmtp, tls, starttls, for sending alerts and reports.

    Currently you can only use SMTP.

    regards

  4. Show correct error page when Uncategorized category is blocked

    When a user attempts to visit an invalid URL (does not resolve in DNS) and the Uncategorized category is set to Block on the WS, the user will incorrectly be shown a “Blocked due to category” error page. While the URL is likely ‘Uncategorized’, it would be more correct to show the user a splash screen for “Server Error Page” that explains “The web address you entered could not be found.” The “Blocked due to category” error page allows the user to submit a request for access to a URL that doesn’t exist, creates additional IT work orders, and wastes…

  5. Reports which file type is blocked.

    Currently if a user has a problem with a certain site because a file type is blocked it is not displayed in the reports.

    So have to investigate this in the syslog if you have set it up or call Sophos support which takes too much time.

    Can the reason for the file type block be added in the reports?

  6. Email Applicance - Possibility to remove Disposition-Notification-To and Return-Receipt-To headers

    Product "Email Appliance" is not available so posting it hear instead.
    Sometimes we receive e-mails which have the headers "Disposition-Notification-To: " and "Return-Receipt-To: " set.

  7. To upgrade the Sophos Virtual Web Appliance hardware version to VMX10

    Hi Team,

    There are various problems in terms of performance of Sophos Virtual Web Appliance hardware version vmx4.

    Its always better to be on latest version for better efficiency and performance.

    Our environment recommended to upgrade the Sophos Web Appliance hardware version from vmx4 to VMX10 but Unfortunately the vmx10 officially you have not tested the hardware version 10 with the Sophos Web Appliance.

    and its not recommended as of now. could you please test the vmx10 version and make it officially supported

    Regards
    Tajudeen

  8. download size

    Set the maximum Downlaod-Size of File in Rules.
    We want to set a Rule for Users or IPs that control the max. Size of a Download-File. e. g. is not allowed to Download a File with over 25MB.
    In SiteKiosk we can set this Option, but when the Sophos Web Appliance is used as Proxy, the Download starts and get the hole File (e. g. 100MB) and then SiteKiosk can say: No, Download is to large ...

  9. Generic block option

    Generic Block for local site list.

    This came up when trying to block a website for all our sites except for one.
    Additional policy was created to allow the site, but to block other sites we changed the Category to something that was blocked. This does not indicate the correct reason.

    Unable to use global block tag as it has higher precedence.

  10. Have the ability to modify the Syslog output format

    The ability to modify the syslog output would be a great feature so that we can tailor that output to a format that works best with our SIEM.

  12. Sophos Live Connect

    Hi everyone, I have enabled Sophos Live Connect on the management server but I have the problem that the list of enabled and then removed clients is not updated, it always stays with the old rumbling entries. Is there a chance to remove these old rumors?
    Thank you.

  13. Web appliance status to show free disk space

    Following an outage that impacted end users through appliance not accepting connections resulting in web pages being inaccessible, requesting functionality to display used and free disk space on (virtual) Web Appliance. It would also be useful to be able to query this using SNMP (see separate Idea submitted by another user in 2012) and/or receive email alerts when disk free space was below a set threshold.

    Background is that disk was so full that even after expanding virtual disk, the inbuilt appliance function to expand the disk would not execute because it could not write the necessary scripts to the…

  14. SSL inspection by pass for non-standard domains

    non-standard domains and sub-domains are ignored for SSL inspection exemption. This makes it hard to exempt corporate trusted domains. example would be "server.itn.shell"

  15. SSL exclusion by subnets to apply when browsing with FQDN

    the exception by CIDR range only works for websites requested by IP which is a pointless feature IMO. The exception should apply to sites when using FQDN.

  16. Add office365.com to Web Application destinations

    Platinum Customer CH2M Hill Companies requests this feature.
    Currently we have only Outlook.com categorized as an Web Application. Office365 should also be seen by the SWA as Web Application, especially for reporting purposes.

  18. Notification page should show either tag or no reason at all instead of initial category

    When using tags for blocking specific sites, the notification page shows the initial site category, but not the tag.

    As an example - a customer blocks websites of TV channels - e.g. www.galileo.tv - on the basis of a tag "BlockTVSender".
    www.galileo.tv is originally categorized as "Business", which is a category the customer doesn't block.
    With the customers setup a user sees a notification page "Reason: Business Sites are blocked" when requesting www.galileo.tv, although Business Sites are allowed, but "BlockTVSender" are blocked by tag.

    It would be usefull to either see the actual blocking reason,…
