Networking: Multiple bridge support

Many SMBs have outposts that do not have the perfect infrastructure to install servers there.
So for several reasons (Security and Maintenance) we would like to install their dedicated servers in the HQ but appearing still as LAN devices.

Pretending bandwith is not an issue we would like to use RED to connect the outpost clients to the servers in the HQ.
To keep the network simple we need the possibility to configurer more than one bridge interface in ASG
The servers appear to be in the clients local network, but are protected and seperated behind Astaro Gateway.

RED-Interface.1 <-> ==>br0
RED-Interface.2 <-> ==>br1
RED-Interface.3 <-> ==>br2

        I just tested this feature, is it correct that IP's behind extra bridges are counted towards your license? I only need the functionality for some basic metering of a DMZ...

        The only one product of Sophos can't sell to Enterprise accounts. please think it BIG.

        We are the distributor of Sonicwall in Taiwan, we can change the vendor to Sophos if you can provide multiple bridge. Because it's the market demand.

        From the point view of professional network security solution, multiple bridge almost is a basic function. I think everybody should be surprised why Sophos don't have the ability to do it.

        We want to change Sonicwall to Sophos UTM but Sophos have this problem, how can we change the focus selling product to Sophos ?

        We sell network devices for more than 10 years, multiple bridge needed by customer. No reason.

        Boss pushed me to sell Sophos UTM but can't fit the environment of customers. How can I survive ?

        Yes, we quite need this feature, we just lost serveral case.
        If you can support by-pass that would be better.

        Linux supports this, and the UTM runs linux, so it's not like this would take as much development effort as many other features. It's pretty disappointing that the UTM still lacks this feature in version 9.

        With an increasing number of RED devices connected to our ASGs, the need for more than one bridge becomes more and more urgent.
