  1. Ability to pull traffic reports that display IPs as well as Associated Mac Address of the PC using the IP.

    We would like the ability to generate traffic reports from our XG firewall that include the Mac address of the PC using an IP at the time. Currently we can see the IP and the Host name of the PC however since DHCP can lease that same IP out to multiple computers within one month, we would like a way to differentiate which PC used the IP and how much traffic Each PC used. Thus displaying the IP alongside with the associated Mac address and total data usage would be very ideal.

    We would like to pull a weekly report…

  2. Include clientless access logs in the messages sent by syslog reporting service of the XG FW

    Hello,

    We are using clientless access VPN to allow remote VNC sessions.
    XG firewall realease is : SFOS 18.0.3 MR-3
    In order to create dashbords for clientless activity and bookmarks usage correlated with data from other systems, we need to centralize clientless activity logs from the XG FW to a global log server.
    On the XG firewall, we configured syslog for all logs but we were unable to receive logs for clientless detailed sessions. They are visibly not handled by syslog.
    The only way to access the logs is to read the /log/clientlessacces.log file directly, or to download it

  5. Granular VPN Report

    I would like to see the XG VPN report yield a detailed view of each successful connection and the duration of said connection (similar to the UTM's remote access logs). We currently get a detailed view of failed attempts, but an aggregate of the successes per user.

    This is required for compliance purposes.

  6. Qos Queue monitor

    Hi,

    I am in the process of trying to convince the manager that the Sophos XG is not causing any delay in Video Voice communication. To do this I would need to bit of information. The size of the QoS queue so I can show the voice queue remains low. The time it takes to process traffic through the Sophos XG, or time to process traffic through each QoS Queue.

    So it would be great to have a feature that monitor, reports on processing time of packets through the Sophos XG and Size of QoS queues.

    Thanks

  7. Add Additional Sophos XG V18 SNMP CPU Reporting Options

    Hi Team,

    The new Sophos XG V18 SNMP MIB's do not have an option to query Overall/Total CPU Usage as a singular value.

    While I appreciate Sophos in V18 offer querying using the HOST-RESOURCES-MIB library, from what I can tell this only provides per-core utilization.

    I would like to suggest adding a Sophos OID (Similar to V17) that provides overall CPU Usage reported as a singular value so that we can configure SNMP alert monitoring based on both Per-Core and Overall CPU Usage.

  9. Report Dropped Traffic by Internal Default Drop rule

    There is no possibilty to report traffic caught by default drop rule.
    Workaround with "ANY ANY DROP" rule does not work because 80/443 traffic is sent to proxy which reply "blocked" web site (incorrect). Other protocols are dropped correct w/o any reply.
    Default drop rule does not replay anything (correct, but does not log them)

  11. It will be great if we are able to Upgrade the XG firmware from 17.5.14 to 18.0.2

    Would like to take a minute to address my request to the development team to have the feature in upgrading from firmware 17.5.14 to firmware 18.0.XX since we might lose some data if we did downgrade the firmware to an older module. Even though we have the backup for the old version but we might lose some data and sites which are currently connected to our XG firewall.

  12. Custom report download in PDF & HTML in one go

    Dear Team,

    In PDF & HTML, we can only download the report page by page only which is very time consuming and also not the right way to export the data.

    In CSV format above requested format is available but it should also be with PDF & HTML option so that on one go we could export the data in single file.

  15. Option to Generate Web Filtering Report For User's Visited Websites Only

    Hello Team,

    We have customer here requesting to have option to generate Web Filtering Report For User's Visited Websites Only. Customer advise that currently the customized web surfing report your isn’t end-user friendly at all. As a MSP, customer want and need the reporting to better align to what end-users want to see and most often that is quite simply:

    User friendly web surfing reports that clearly list the websites a user has been visiting and possibly and additionally categorize that information. Ultimately they just want the browsing history for that user.

    For your assistance please. Thank You.

  16. Regarding Web

    Please Add the MAC Address of System With IP Address when user download during the web url of client users. It is very mandatory things for all the Sophos Client because the DHCP lease IP address change as their particular time but the mac address remain same on the system. So Please do the needful Sophos Client and add this feature in next updates of firewall.

  18. Sophos integration with Microsoft SCOM-System Center Operations Manager

    Sophos XG/iView should create management pack which includes monitoring configurations and data collection parameters tailored for specific applications and services which we can import on Microsoft System Center Operations Manager to trigger alerts/conflicts/any attacks ralated to Firewall and SCOM will create an incident against this.

  19. Log Viewer Raw Data Export

    When we customize the Log viewer & export it, we get only the last 15 min data. Which is not sufficient. There should be a date range option there so we can download full day log records. Raw data attributes are really useful for the IT Admin point. Also in the Report section, we are not getting all the raw tab features which is in log viewer. It should be there. & there should option for download all data..currently only 5,10,25,50,100,200..but if we want to download all data at single click, we can not. Report tool must need to improve..

  20. Extend Notification List

    With XG 18.0.1 there is the "Notification list" in "Configure"/"System Services". Please add more options to that list. First it would be nice to get an email, when an Problem is resolved.

    For example:
    - Wireless Access Point is online
    - RED Connection is online
    - Gateway is online again

    Then it would be also nice to separate notifications for VPN if it is a Client Connection or a site-to-site connection.
