  1. Option to Download Sophos Connect Client and Config from LAN / WAN IP

    Option to Download Sophos Connect Client and Config from LAN / WAN IP

    Enable Option, where we can configure the Sophos Connect Client and .scx file to be downloaded from Public IP. Something similar to the way it is for Sophos SSL VPN client.

  2. Increase idle timeout to 24 hours for SSL VPN remote users

    Currently the idle timeout for SSL VPN remote users is only 1 hour at maximum. Please increase it to 24 hours or longer as an option. We have remote users that run data sync through the VPN session for long hours and we do not want the user to be cut off because of a mere one-hour idle time. I'd imagine this is a relatively simple code change and has no negative effect on anything? Please help.

  5. IPSec with IP Range and List Type

    Establishing an IPSec between two XG devices and adding IP or Network is fine. But try adding an IP Range or a IP List. You are able to create it (and can see it later in Hosts and Services) but there is no way to choose it as a local or remote address type.

    This is quite confusing and shouldn't be there in the first place if it serves no purpose.

    Cheers.

  7. IPsec VPN Ping rechability over the different source LAN

    We want the VPN IPsec configuration work on Interface mode. Also,allow the ability to put in a Source/Destination address for ping to validate the traffic flow. This would be help us when troubleshooting routing and VPN issues immensely.

  8. Public ip logging for SSL VPN in iView

    Would be nice to log public ip address of SSL VPN users on iView. It currently logs only DHCP address given out by the XG unit internally.

  9. SSL VPN with Active Directory OTP token generation uniq element to add.

    Current firewall Active Directory integration and OTP autogeneration via user portal for SSL VPN don't use unique element. Enable this on one firewall is working. Enable the second firewall and Mobile auth app will override first by second as account name in OTP token is the same as to use email address attribute from AD eg. user@company-domain.com. Local user on XG firewall will use user@firewallname. Propose resolution is to do OTP token account name user@company-domain.com-firewallname. That will make OTP token unique per firewall and you will be able to have AD authenitcation for SSL vpn with unique OTP…

  11. N2N Overlay Integration

    NTOP.org has a piece of software called n2n which is a great way to quickly create a P2P VPN over layer 2, it would be awesome if Sophos could add this protocol to the XG as yet another option for creating a VPN. Welcome to the era of Software Defined Networking.

  12. Sophos Connect RADIUS Auth

    I need to be able to authenticate Sophos Connect clients using RADIUS so that I can use my MFA service Duo. There are other use cases that this would support as well. Also, with radius authentication it should not use the internal firewall user database. It is inconvenient to require all of my users log into the firewall once so the user is created.

  14. Per-user certificate authentication from third party CA

    Allow certificate based authentication for client VPN to authenticate users based on a certificate issued by a trusted third party or internal CA server. Additionally, grant authorization based on group membership of user presenting the certificate.

  15. Change MTU size on RED devices

    As there is a know issue with Citrix connections over a RED interface, I would like the possibility to change the MTU size on the WAN interface of a RED, or on the RED interface of the managing firewall.

    this can be done by running the following command from the advance firewall via putty ifconfig RED interface i.e. RED1 mtu XXXX

    Please be aware that a reboot or an firmware update will revert this back to the normal settings

  17. Sophos Connect Client - AD password reset

    It would save a lot of client frustration if there was a mechanism built into the Sophos Connect client that allowed users to securely reset their AD account password in the event that it has expired.

  18. VPN folders

    We're now able to group firewall rules into folders, which is quite useful. Would be nice to be able to do this for VPN connections too.
