  2. The sophos connect client cannot select a bridge or no IP interface as the service interface

    When I was using SOPHOS Connect Client of XG firewall, I entered the configuration content and clicked application
    My firewall is bridged behind the gateway and switch (port1 area wan; port2 area LAN; IP address is given to the bridge port after wan bridging)
    However, I noticed that in the sophos Connect setting, only port2 port (area wan) can be selected as the VPN interface and bridge port cannot be selected, while port2 port has no IP state and shows NA. I suspect there is something wrong with this place
    Therefore, I tried to do the experiment, and configured a…

  3. SSL VPN Insecure

    I have Installed SSL-VPN to users and provided userid and password to users.With this Userid and password users can install in their Personal laptops aswell.This is a top notch security Sophos has not clarrified or checked.As we are using DHCP even with IP we cant able to create a firewall rule,My suggestion that there need to be a specific configuration to add Device MAC id to configure VPN.Please getback on this

  4. Mobile (Portable) RED

    It would be fantastic to have a portable Wireless RED, such as a Netgear AC800S https://www.netgear.com.au/home/products/mobile-broadband/hotspots/AC800S.aspx with RED functionality. We could install this in our fleet vehicles where our officers have an in car computer and run it off of 12V. It would also help with staff who think its too hard to VPN into the network when abroad, to simply have the single device which gets them back to our network.

  5. SSL VPN (remote access) - edit options / advanced config - for .ovpn files

    Hello Everyone

    We should be able to edit some of the options of the .ovpn file

    Right now I need to manualy edit theese two options a lot in the .ovpn file directly:

    comp-lzo no -> yes (so SMB traffic does work)
    route-delay 4 -> 0 or 1 (so the route are set faster and remote ressources can be accessed immediatly)

    When there are a lot of users this is a lot of work as every user generates its own .ovpn file

    It would be really nice if this could be set for everyone on the XG UI or trough…

  6. Changing pre-shared key on one IPSec tunnel impacts all

    In XG, when the pre-shared key of one IPSec tunnel is changed, it affects all the tunnels. This problem was there in Cyberoam also. Kindly work to get rid of this behavior in future firmware releases.

  7. Provide Sophos Connect client and config download on Public 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.

  8. 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.

  10. Don't allow inline creating IP Range or IP List if they can't be used

    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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  18. 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.

  19. Grouping for VPN connection definitions

    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.

  20. VPN access to Guest users

    Hi,

    I would like to request you to that enable VPN policy for Guest users. We had successfully given vpn policy to guest users but in sophos XG. We need to give vpn to guest for clients or candidates for screentesting so please look into this.
