  1. Hotspot "terms of service" customization

    I serve a customer who uses XG firewalls in their chain of restaurants. They want to keep the customer hotspot sign-on process as clean and simple as possible. Vouchers etc. are a mission to manage - they just want to provide free Internet to their customers, limited by data or time.

    My customer would like to their hotspot setup in such a way that when a user joins, they are presented with a branded captive portal with a splash page, with terms of service for the user to accept.

    When the user accepts, they are granted Internet Access. 
The user…

  2. DHCP: Allow static lease of addresses within the dynamic pool

    Currently it is not possible in the Sophos XG to store static DHCP leases in the internal DHCP server where the IP addresses are located within the configured DHCP pool. This is with other manufacturers such. B. AVM (Fritz! Box) without problems possible. Thus here is the DHCP for large customers currently partly to use. When will this be a solution.

    Aktuell ist es in der Sophos XG nicht möglich Statische DHCP Leases im internen DHCP Server zu hinterlegen, bei denen die IP Adressen sich innerhalb des konfigurierten DHCP Pool befinden. Dies ist bei anderen Herstellern wie z. B. AVM…

  3. Web Server Protection should support multiple group membership

    Recently we have create a new ticket with Sophos support (#9307623) and they confirm that 'at a time a user would be part of one group'. It leads us to the hard way when having 2 websites which are needed to be authenticated with 2 domain groups, and from them, we have multipla users who are belonged to these 2 groups as well. Therefore, we can not separate to authencate these ones properly.

    I suggest Sophos should improve this feature to make customers easy to configure many authenticated websites appropriately.

    Thanks.

  4. Include trusted Certificate on sophos

    I have a huge problem with doing HTTPS Decryption and Scaning.
    Because in my enviroment haven't AD to push self-signed certificate.
    So I want to add CA Author Signed certificate, But unfortunatley any of CA Authority not providing root certificate. Therefore I have new suggestion , Pls add sophos own CA Signed root certificate to sophos firewall. It will be helpful all of sophos users to enable HTTPS Decryption and Scaning without installing certificate manually. Because browser will trust certificate automatically. I still waiting for solution for this.

  5. Major XG Log Improvements

    The log would benefit from the following changes.


    1. When scrolling thru the log the column headers are not sticky.

    2. The ability to sort each column with ascending or descending.

    3. The ability to filter events using a time range and place under the "Timer Filter".

    4. Change the word "Timer Filter" to "Time Filter".

    5. Add the ability to filter on a date range. Add this button next to the "Time Filter" and call it "Date Range".

    6. Ensure export to xls downloads all entries. Seems to stop at 100 records or less.


    7. Add the ability to break the logs up on pages if…

  7. Sophos XG Home Hardware limits

    Considering the high internet connections already available to home users I think it would be important to at least increase the CPU's limit.
    Currently is 4 threads, whichs is a problem because in most home installations the firewall is virtualized and this means that you can only use 2 cores (4 threads).
    I think a limit of 8 threads would be fine. Right now the firewall with the IPS enable can hardly go above 300Mbps and I have 2 cores and 4 threads at 3.8 Mhz Zen2.

  13. More objects should have note fields

    On the SG devices there are several fields for notes and comments which really help us in our job. The XG is only a few of them and in most cases there is no chance to add any comment to it.
    Please add at least the note fields from the SG devices.

  14. Schedule WAF rules

    Version 18 has changed how Business Application Rules work. DNAT is done by a combination of NAT policy and regular firewall rules, which can have scheduled on/off times.

    WAF/Webserver Protection rules cannot currently be associated with schedules.

    This item is created so that folk who previously supported the Business Rule schedule feature because of a WAF requirement can transfer their votes here.

  15. Support use of Office 365 SMTP for sending notifications

    Why does not 17.5 is not supporting the office 365 mail notification. Need to allow the feature in the XG firewall.

    Seems no matter how I configure the outgoing SMTP settings I cannot for the life of me get it to work with smtp.office365.com. I can get other devices to work just fine with that service, things like copiers and multi-function printers. A little embarrassing that the Sophos would have trouble especially since it touts itself as a e-mail protection device.

  17. VPN Logs from Log Viewer and Not CLI Only

    We should be able to get this right in the log viewer and not have to go through this. The UTM had this and we need to get the feature parity up to speed. This seems so basic to me. See below for Sophos instruction to pull logs via CLI, this isn't cool.

  18. Ability to restrict ALL system services under Administration -> Device Access

    This is similar to https://ideas.sophos.com/forums/330219-xg-firewall/suggestions/16593775-assign-the-built-in-services-vpns-admin-etc-to which was marked as "Already Possible" even though it is not. I want to restrict RED device access to a single external IP address. Currently ALL external/WAN IP addresses have port 3400 open listening. I can restrict SSL VPN and User Portal but I cannot restrict RED access or IKE (port 500) even if I wanted to. This is causing me pain in my PCI compliance scans. If this cannot be done then I need to be able to enable these services per IP address and not per Zone like it currently is.

    If I…

  19. Integrate with prtg for monitoring

    regarding monitoring for sophos products with prtg from paessler:
    is there any planning for a partnership to create sensors for utm, xg, wireless etc based on standard sensors for prtg ?

    or - is there any planning to distribute sensors or rest api scripts to take senseful analysis of this items / regarding too - snmp and operating values.

    at the moment, it is really a lot of work to create new simple sensors for monitoring sopohs products on a base level.

    it can be nix if the events were dropped by sophos central - but it is not nearly…

  20. firewall rule with last access date and time

    It would be great for audit unused firewall rules, if all rules had information with the last access date and time.
