  1. Expose more OpenVPN Configuration Options

    SSL VPN is based upon OpenVPN, it would be great if you could expose more of the options available to that platform. OpenVPN is a very powerful piece of software and can do many things, however, the implementation on the XG prevents us from accessing that power. I also noticed that the cipher used is a pretty weak 128 bit one, would be great if we could choose the cipher. TLS-Auth is also not enabled which would be an added plus.

  2. SSLVPN OTP SELECTABLE PER PROFILE

    Need to have the ability to choose which SSL VPN server (OpenVPN) uses OTP. As it is now OTP is applied accross the board to ALL SSL VPN connections. We use devices that logon as SSL VPN users, enabling OTP on SSL VPN breaks that ability. We don't wish to disable OTP on SSL VPN as that would make it less secure for actual users that need to login to SSL VPN. What would be ideal is the ability to have one profile for devices that needs no OTP and one for users that does. An alternative to this would…

  3. Make Cisco VPN Client Client Functional Or Replace it with Cisco Any Connect VPN Client

    As Cisco Vpn Client is now obsolete and no more supported by Cisco, it doesn't work with Sophos XG as said by one of Sophos Technical Support Team member, names " Yagnik Goswami "in my service request number "8232842".

    As there is still the "Cisco VPN Client" option is available in Sophos XG so it should also be working fine or Sophos has to give its replacement option of "Cisco Any Connect".

    As this thing is annoying the costumer so Sophos must think on this matter seriously.

    Best Regards

  6. Split tunnel to support FQDN Host objects as permitted network resources

    Hi,

    We need to have SSLVPN with split tunnel that can support route to FQDN based hosts (eg. nowadays some of webservices are using dynamic public IP addresses to provide their high availability)

    This capability is on the SG UTM SSLVPN, where we can add multiple permitted network resources, from a single IP address, group of ip ranges (Network group), and FQDNs. But currently the Sophos XG SSLVPN split tunnel "permitted network resources" is limited only to IP Host.

    Regards
    Yo.

  7. RED: Make tunnel Timeout adjustable

    It would be great to be able to adjust the timeout values on the REDs to prevent the device from disconnecting as fast when connected to an unstable ISP connection

  9. SSL VPN: configure listening interface(s)

    Ability to bind SSL VPN to a single interface.

    Currently when SSLVPN is enabled it listens on all interfaces regardless of what is set in Local ACL's.

    We need the ability to bind this to a single interface, if we use port 443 for SSL VPN as many want to it limits our ability to run WAF/DNAT for web servers on separate interfaces on 443.

  11. VPN - Authenticate and Run Domain GPO login scripts - Mapped Drives

    VPN Login Script

    Configure the VPN client to authenticate to the domain and allow GPO login scripts to be applied to the remote computer so that the user can connect to all network resources as they do when they are in the office.

  12. 3rd party VPN Client Support

    Since the Sophos IPSec client is not compatible with the XG product, and the SSL client does not support MSGina (Logon Before Windows) how about implementing compatibility with external VPN Clients like The Green Bow.

    Make an option to download a compatible config file which can be imported into the client configuring the VPN options.

    The XG product IPSec configuration downloads a config file for the original EliteCore IPSec client which was always lacking this feature.

    The Green Bow VPN client can be used with IPSec client VPN's, and the MSGINA support functions correctly.

  13. Bandwidth allocation to IPSec VPN Tunnel

    While configuring / setting up IPSec VPN Tunnel, there is no option to allocate bandwidth.
    Please add this feature as this'll help to manage traffic and available bandwidth.

    There are instances where the users at Branch / Vendor site complain they are getting slow connections to the resources in HO. There is no way we can check how much bandwidth is being used by IPSec Tunnel and we can not change the same.

  14. Generic SSL VPN profile so any user in the security group can login using the same VPN configuration.

    Currently, if a company has a pool of laptops to be handed out by users that have the SSL VPN client installed, they cannot log into the SSL VPN client without first logging into the user portal and then downloading the configuration for their particular user. It would be nice to have one VPN client install and if the user is a member of a particular security group, be able to log in using the installed VPN client software.

  15. override hostname ssl vpn - multiple hostnames

    Would be usefull in SSL VPN, that you can have the possibility to override hostname, with multiple records.
    Now we do this by manually changing the configuration file.
    FE:
    remote isp1.dns.com 8443
    remote isp2.dns.com 8443

  16. Support for Wake on LAN

    It's very disapointing not to be able to WoL all the computers on our LANs. We use WoL to update OS during the night but since we have XG, we can't do it anymore.

  17. Allow me to change the MTU/MSS of SSL VPN Clients

    Disappointing that I can't tweak this for performance. UDP fragmentation is a big problem in our world of oversold connections.

  18. RED: Assign static DHCP leases on a RED interface

    It is possible to assign static leases in every DHCP server. The only exception is the DHCP server to a RED interface.
    In some cases it is necessary to assign static leases.
    Please implement this function.

  19. VLAN tagging on RED WAN port

    Currently Sophos RED devices are not compatible with Australian NBN infrastructure. As NBN is quiet affordable and getting accessible, it is most likely to be used for branch offices. NBN has a specific requirement to TAG (trunk) external WAN interface with vlan 100.

    Unfortunately NBN won't change their silly network requirements and it is the only way we comply and offer routers with such capability.

  20. RED: Check local network connectivity before attempting to connect VPN

    On some ISP box, DHCP server is up before network is really connected. This allow RED to obtain IP adress, but to failed into reaching network and XG (if on another wan site).
    It should be good to add an ability to check if Network is up before trying to connect.
