  1. Notified abount Access Point UP / Down

    it could be nice to receive notification about the status of AP connected to XG (Wireless Protection), actually the state is displayed on the dashboard (numer of total AP / number of AP connected) but it is not a warning, there is no log in the Wireless Security section related to an AP that goes offline. Also in SFM there is no specific Alert/Notification about AP state.

    • Optional Antennas for Wireless-APs

      Hi,
      we need the option to use external antennas with the Sophos APs.
      Cisco offers a large range of antennas to cover mostly situations.

      So you can use directed antennas. sector antennas or use outdoor antennas and the AP is mounted indoor.

      • Customize Hotspot mail for "password of the day"

        The customization of the daily mail for the hotspot-password "password of the day" should be possible, so it could fit the CI of the customer like other customization options in the xg, that are already available

        • WI-FI connectivity status and usage

          XG wireless lack a way to identify devices connected to the APs as well as not able to see any kind of live usage data. In SG it's possible to see how a wide variety of wireless information and live data. This really is something required in Sophos XG

          • Simultaneous Logins* restriction o

            Simultaneous Logins* restriction settings for each interface.

            It would be good if cyberaom gives an option to restrict Simultaneous Logins* to particular interface.
            Currently if set Simultaneous Logins* restrction for users, it applies globally to all interface

            ( if interface based restriction is there , we can assign one user to login through 2 devices on LAN and 1 through WIFI interface.

            Currently if we set 3 , they are bale to login all 3 either through LAN or WIFI.

            • Sopgos XG RADIUS IOS & Android Authentifizierung

              Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,

              wir würden uns wünschen. dass es in der Sophos XG möglich ist Anmeldungen welche von einem IOS/Android über RADIUS laufen in den Live Usern angezeigt werden.

              Somit ist es möglich auch auf Smartphones Gruppen/benutzerdefinierte Firewall Regeln zu erstellen.

              Der Sophos Network Agent für IOS/Android ist sehr unpraktikabel und fällt somit für uns weg.

              Wir haben gesehen, dass in der SFOS 17.1 schon Vorarbeiten geleistet wurden, was dieses Feature angeht.

              Ich hoffe das wir hierfür zeitnah eine praktiable Lösung erhalten.

              Mit freundlichen Grüßen

              • Wireless Accespoint IDS/IPS or UTM application <3

                Wireless Accespoint IDS/IPS or UTM application.
                Why? Because WAN is not the only "outside" of a network. As a Blueteam Sys/Netadmin aspirering to be an ethical hacker I consider all "acces ports/acces points/network entrys" as "Outside". Scanning for malware and payloads on Wireless Acces Point level would be an absolute godsend. (btw there is still no silver bullet for EvilTwins.. just saying xx.

                  • rogue

                    Add a classification of "External" to the Rogue AP Actions. The reason is that we want to designate third party access points which are not approved for use, but which are not rogue (i.e. connected to our network without authorization) as External.

                    Sophos should then develop a set of features we can implement by policy to take action. An example would be a policy that prevents authorized devices from connecting to Rogue or External access points.

                          • 802.11 k

                            Apple Devices & WiFi:
                            So everybody knows that Apple has its own opinion for WiFi Roaming and switching to the next AP with the best wifi signal. I think it's a good idea to implement the 802.11k standard to Sophos AccessPoints, according to the knowledge page from Apple at: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202628 where they talking about the 802.11k Standard. Maybe this is a solution for Apple devices that have connection issues and do not want to switch the access point.

                                • Seamless activation of new Wi-Fi SSID

                                  If a new SSID goes online (due to a schedule), all other SSIDs goes offline for a short time. So all Wi-Fi clients on all SSIDs will be disconnected.

                                  This is very annoying, for example, if you have an all-time internal Wi-Fi for corporate devices and a guest Wi-Fi, which is only switched on between typical business hours.

                                  • Remote Restart of Wireless Access Point

                                    I'm facing a issue of High Latency on my Wi-Fi network with Sophos XG 230. While troubleshooting the same, I thought of restarting the APs to see if that helps. I'd to go and do that manually by going to every place the APs are installed. In a 6Floor building and 3 satellite office connected on fiber, with more than 15 APs, its a bit tough job to do so.

                                    Request to enable a function in the OS to restart the APs remotely,

                                      • Mesh for AP55s on 5ghz

                                        Currently you can only create a 2.4ghz mesh network on AP55s.Business requirement
                                        1/. Sophos stays competitive and in the business of WIFI security
                                        2/. Sophos has products that people want to add the their XG range of hardware
                                        3/. provides greater throughput than achievable using 2.4ghz mesh.
                                        Larger files take noticeably longer to load over a 2.4ghz mesh
