  2. Full tunnel VPN exceptions e.g. for Office 365 traffic

    Allow for exceptions to be created that will allow the traffic to go direct to the internet bypassing VPN configured as full tunnel for both SSL and IPsec VPN. This is recommended by Microsoft for Office 365 traffic.

    https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/office-365-blog/how-to-quickly-optimize-office-365-traffic-for-remote-staff-amp/ba-p/1214571

    Alternatively it would be even better if Sophos can build in this functionality within the OS making it an option that can be enabled/disabled.

  3. SSL VPN with BSNL Link

    SSL VPN tunnel should be established with SUB Interface IP of BSNL which is public-facing and the main Interface IP is Connected to BSNL as L2 LAN.
    We can establish connectivity using Sub IP to IPSEC Tunnel and to Serve Internet to users but can not able to connect using SSL VPN as the Main interface IP is L2 LAN and Sub IP is public-facing.

  4. Support MLPPP

    Please allow XG Firewall to support MLPPP (Multi-LInk PPPoe) so we can bond two DSL connections together! I see Sophos UTM already supports this.

  6. Notification Settings

    Functionality that allows you to tailor notifications.
    For example, a fault discovered and has maintained a fault for 15 minutes then sends out the notification instead of constant up/down notifications.

  9. country blocking

    Country Blocking should have an option for blocking the uncategorized Public IPs,
    These are noted as not belonging to a country, these do not get blocked by default, I would like an inclusion of a group called "Uncategorised", and this would block all the Public IPs that have no categorisation, and exception can always be made later if they are required, this also happens on the SG UTM boxes as well.

  10. How to Allow ICMP request from WAN on Public Alias IP Address in Sophos XG?

    We want to allow ICMP request from WAN on Public Alias IP address to check whether the internal host is up or down. Internet should not be able to ping the NAT public IP address if the host is down. Any ideas how to do it?

  11. Policy Tester - Allow testing DNAT (published services)

    Hi all,

    It would be great if you could test published services in the "Policy Tester" section.

    Specially since you're trying to push v18, why not add that possiblity? The policy tester already can tell you rule and NAT of outgoing traffic to the internet.

    And since decoupling NAT and firewalls rules will cause a lot of NAT rules (specially mid to large companies), checking those in the little screen that SFOS provides its not great.

    Thanks!

  12. Full width dashboard, not limited to max-width

    Hi,

    I've using firmware 18
    Up until now, there are no benefit using resolution higher than 1366x768 px
    Lets say you have FHD resolution, the dashboard capped at 1280px

    The CSS says

    wrapper.cp-wrapper {

    max-width: 1280px;
    

    }

    If I rule out that CSS, most of UI will have benefit with higher resolution

    Also with menu

    element.style {

    display: table;
    
    box-sizing: border-box;
    padding: 0px 10px;
    width: 1100px;
    height: 62px;

    }

    Change the width to

    element.style {

    display: table;
    
    box-sizing: border-box;
    padding: 0px 10px;
    width: calc(100% - 180px);
    height: 62px;

    }

    And you have full width header.

    I know you guys can…

  13. IPSec VPN Client Connections Need to generate a SIEM-compatible event

    Sophos Connect client IPSec connections generate separate log events for EVERY SUBNET mapped. There is no single event that any SIEM recognizes as a VPN login event. Every other firewall vendor we've tried doesn't have this issue.

  15. Force Microsoft NCSI probe as SSL VPN Connects

    (For Sophos Tech Support, this is from the back of #9887121)

    I was asked by Sophos Support Rep to post a feature request.

    We have seen with a large amount of our customers an issue arise whereby Sophos SSL VPN (OpenVPN) connects to the Sophos XG fine. With Sophos XG having "Default Gateway" checked for the SSL VPN users a default route is established as we expect.

    However, it cant take a while for Microsoft NCSI to complete it's probe to check if there is internet access. While the VPN interface is in "NoTraffic" or "No network access" mode, before…

  17. Application filter category : Ads & Tracker

    In the application filter there is an category called "e-commerce". When you look inside the application list, you can see a lot of banking apps listed but also Ad-Server apps and tracker. It would be nice when there is seperate new category like "Ads & Tracker". This would make it more easier for the administrator to filter and block unproductive web apps.

  19. Implement "Keep Nodes Reserved" in HA-Function

    So as we have seen with Update to SFOS 17.5 MR10 it could be possible that access to the Web-Interface is blocked and loading an previous Firmware with SF Loading is also not possible. In our Case SF Loading was not possible because the console did not accept the password (probably in case of german keyboard layout or spacial characters in password).

    So in a production environment, where time is very important, a feature as"keeps node reserved" like it is implemented in UTM-9 is gold.

    For me SF Loading like it is acctually implemented is nice but not helpfull for…
