  1. licensing per core for VM/Software

    Hello,
    I didn't know in which category to put this and ended up with Operating System. It would be nice if UTM is licensed per core for VM or Software so it easier to compete with vendors like Fortinet. This is particulary interesting in VM worlds.

    Having upgrade path to buy additional quotes is also something what should be considered.

    VMWare 4.1 (and u1) is fully supported as of ASG 8.100, and our Software has the latest open vm tools included. Enjoy.

  3. Networking: Support for USB Network Adapters

    There are a lot of small and cheap devices capable for the (home) use of Astaro Security Gateway software (e.g. netbooks with 1GB RAM) but limited just with one Ethernet interface, but also offering multiple USB ports. For most (small) installations an additional USB network adapter would be sufficient - but is so far not supported...

    Let's turn on USB network support in the kernel:

    CONFIGUSBCATC

    CONFIGUSBKAWETH

    CONFIGUSBPEGASUS

    CONFIGUSBRTL8150

    CONFIGUSBUSBNET

    !

    This feature has been released as part of UTM 9.1. We now have support for many USB Ethernet adapters. Give yours a shot today, and let us know at www.astaro.org what you see for success. Enjoy.

  4. AstaroOS: Support of tg3 / Broadcom Nics

    Current distro does not appear to support the Broadcom 57788 NIC - motherboard based, which I believe uses the Broadcom tg3 Linux Driver.

  5. AstaroOS: Sophos AV Engine

    My end-point Anti-virus picks up on more viruses than two anti-virus products with the Astaro. I would suggest that you use Sophos as one of the AV Engines. They do have a Linux version.

  6. Noiseless ASG 110 / 120 fan control

    The new revision of ASG 110/120 is very loud. The device has two fan. One on the via processor, a second on the case

    Now it is not possible to control the fan speed. So the fan are running on high performance and cause noise

    The Via Chip should be manageable by software, but there the v7temp driver is missing.

    Developers should implement the driver, so that control of fan is possible and the device can run nearly noiseless

    I have here a link from internet. Please implement it on the next firmware....

    Step 1: Download the VIA temperature source…

    We are in the process of releasing ASG110/120 in revision 4. The new chassis has an optimized airflow and fan grill as well as new fan that makes it near silent

  9. Astaro Amazon EC2 Image

    Amazon EC2 provides hosting solutions for MSSP but the image should be available and created on a system supported by xen.

    It could be great to have at least one version of ASG and ACC available as AMI in the Amazon marketplace.

    This feature has been released in Version 8.300 of ASG and is now available! You may locate ASG (and ACC) Amazon Machine Images by searching “ASG” (or “ACC”) from the community tab of the AMI marketplace in Amazon Web Services.

  10. Notifications: SMS Alerting System from Astaro Support

    I think that Astaro should activate a new service in which they send an SMS alert to customers in case of high urgency warnings. In this way, even if our ASG are not online, webadmins can be alerted about critical issues.

    This has been implemented. For all end users, partners, customers etc…you can signup for emergency SMS notifications via your my.astaro.com account.

  11. Other terms of payment (5 year subscription)

    I would like to have other terms of payment if we sign 5 or 7 years of maintenance or subscription. To pay the total amount of all of these years at the beginning of the periode is not good. I would like to pay annually...

    Astaro has many payment options, including financing which would solve your problem. Ask your Astaro Sales Contact for information.

  12. Licensing: Unified/Site Licenses

    Create a way to have a single unified license file for all boxes (utilizing serial numbers, etc).

    Once you get past 15/20 units license tracking and renewals become much more of a pain.

    Site Licenses are already available from the Astaro Sales team upon request and for bigger quantities of installations >20.

  13. Installer: Beep after ASI Installation

    When using the ASI to wipe an AxG appliance, it would be great if there was a sound signal that the installation is complete and the AxG should be rebooted now.
    On the larger AxG appliances you can see this on the LED display, but for the 110/120 boxes there is no way of telling that the installation is complete without using the VGA port. So an audio hint would be useful.

  16. UserPortal: Bind to specific Interface(s)

    When you have 2 or more interfaces(additional public IP) the user portal listen to all of these.
    I would be nice that the user portal can be bound to a certain NIC or IP.

    This is possible in UTM 9 using the “Listen Address” field located in the UserPortal Advanced-Tab Settings. Enjoy!

  17. Remote Shutdown via SSH

    Is it possible to shutdown the astaro server remote with a script? The background of my question is to have a function to shutdown astaro when a windows server run on battery power from an ups. Astaro only supports UPS systems with USB connectors, or Shutdown via Web-Interface from ACC, but our end customer uses a larger UPS with a network management interface, which provides ssh command execution eg. "shutdown -h now". Unfortunately this isn't supported by Astaro, because loginuser doesn't provide shutdown privileges.

  18. Noiseless ASG 110 / 120

    Please make the actual ASG110 / 120 more silent. With todays cooler / fan systems it should be possible to build such Systems absolutely noiseless. The actual rev.2 / rev.3 ASG110/120 systems are still producing unpleasant fan buzzing.

    While still having a fan, the latest ASG 120 revision will be nearly silent while still maintaining airflow.

  19. Networking: WAN Address Virtual MAC (Clone)

    The ability to clone (modify) wan mac address? This saves us from having to re-register with the provider when we RMA appliances or change to a different model for example.

    We have added this feature into the Astaro command center, which is free of charge. From there, you can schedule reboots at whichever interval you feel is necessary. I will restate again that this is in no way needed to ensure proper, continued operation, other than to reset the linux-style display of swap allocation, which isnt an indicator at all of active ram usage.
