  3. Notification Rules

    At the moment no way to customize notification. I receive mail when the WAN gateway is down/up.
    You need to provide us a way to create rules where we can decide when receive notification, alert level (warning, information, critical),who will receive the notification. As soon you integrate SMS, please also allow us to receive SMS (it is an old way) but when the mail does not work....
    I would suggest you to create a panel as the Network Policy Rule rule to manage notification rules.

  5. Add options for IPv6 DHCPv6-PD

    My ISP supports native IPv6, they support prefix delegation using DHCPv6-PD to assign a /56 subnet. They do not assign the WAN interface an IPv6 address (i.e. no IA-NA) and only provide a prefix delegation (IA-PD). Currently XG (and UTM9) doesn't work with my ISP to get a PD because there are no options to request IA-PD only. My ISP edge router will respond to a solicit message with a IA-NA and IA-PD request but it would appear that the XG doesn't conform to RFC7550 when it sends a IA-NA message and receives a "NoAddrsAvail" from my ISP edge router.

  6. Add ability to create MAC host groups.

    In the list of host objects, all have the option to create groups, except for MAC hosts. Please add ability to also create groups for those objects.

  7. Manual renew DHCP button on the Wan interface

  10. Export Configuration in a human-readable format

    At the moment export full configuration is easy with the new option but we need some way to export full configuration or part of it where the config. is full readable as it is possible with UTM.
    This can be used for Passive Analysis too.

  11. Ability to change default Admin username

    Currently, the WebAdmin Master-User is fix named as admin. It would be great, if we would have the possibility to change the username. This would be an improvement for brute-force attacks, when the WebGUI is somehow published to the Internet.

    This is being considered. The current intention is to add a superadmin role, making the default admin account just a member of that role.

    This will allow you to create new superadmin accounts, capable of logging into the shell, adding ssh keys, and any other features limited currently to the named admin account.

    Second, you will be able to disable or demote the named admin account.

  12. Improve Backup operation

    At the moment is possible to configure only one method of backup (Local or Email or FTP). I would like to configure 2 ways, such as Local + email, Local + FTP.
    Also no way to only upload configuration inside XG without restore (as it is possible with UTM).
    Once the configuration has been uploaded, I would like to see what has changed from last configuration to current configuration. So the chance to generate a PDF report which lists all differences and details, such as:
    -User A has been added (details)
    -Policy ID has been changed (details)
    - New Traffic…

  13. Handle exceptions more easily

    Today is quite hard to create simple exceptions. For example: Lets say we have a main user policy that uses a Web filtering policy, a QoS policy, a default routing policy and an App filtering policy.

    Now, lets say we have a user inside this policy that should get a specific web site access that is currently blocked in the web filtering policy. Also, another user needs to get more/less bandwithd than everyone else. Also, a user have to get routed through a specific link and not follow the default route balance. Also, another user must have an application allowed.

  14. On Demand CPU Scaling

    The firewall would be scaling the CPU up/down depending on utilization. Main benefit would be less power usage, and possibly better efficiency.

    Should use CPU technologies available like AMD's Cool'n'Quiet or Intel's SpeedStep

  15. DHCP - Clients via DHCP/DHCPv6 relay agent

    XG Firewall already has the option to serve either as a DHCP server, or as a DHCP relay agent for another DHCP server. However, when using the XG Firewall as the DHCP server, there is no option to serve DHCP clients via a DHCP relay agent (i.e., when another device is serving as the relay agent). As a result, DHCP pools on the XG Firewall can only be configured using address ranges that are contained within the subnet range of the selected interface. This option is available when setting up address pools in UTM9.

  16. Route based VPN in XG Firewall

    Route based VPN is a very much required feature in XG Firewall. Lot of Cyberoam customers are using this feature, primarily for MPLS to VPN failover using Dynamic Routing. In multi-branch scenario, Sophos cloud is a great solution with Synchronized security. But customers who are using Route based feature are not able to upgrade their Cyberoam devices to SF-OS because of the feature lack.

  17. Allow service object creation while creating a service group

    make creation of a service while creating a service group available. Right now I had to create all the desired services. And only after that could I create the group and add the services

  18. Export-Import Reports and Logging

    For customer that do not use iView, we need a way to export logs and reports before a format is needed for some reason (when no HA is used).
    Also now the license is attached to serial, so imagine a customer need to move to another appliance (bigger or smaller) he will lose all data.
    Inside Administration, there is a Menu "Import/Export). You could add the feature inside there.
    Once exported, reports/logs should be imported again as History or merging with the new data.

  19. Common Objects used in all configurations

    Give us objects like in the UTM, Why do i have to set a static ip in the dhcp, add a dns record in the dns server and create a ip host object for firewall rules, when i could do it all with one object in the UTM.. This was for me a really really perfect feature and it makes it all a lot easier to administrate since you don't have to do the same over and over again for different parts of the configuration.
