  1. Static Routes Should Be Top Precedence By Default

    Static route should always be the top precedence by default. I have several tunnels that have stopped working after updating to v18 and having newly migrated policy routes take precedence.

    Additionally, it would be nice to have a GUI-based option to change the precedence order, rather than needing to go and and make a CLI change for each device we upgrade.

  2. Firewall rule locks

    Using Sophos XG 18.01 , had a recent issue where a LAN>>LAN rule was deleted automatically when a RED device interface was removed from the XG.

    It would be great, if "Tags" or "Locks" could be applied to Firewall rules, that either stops these rules from being deleted, or alternatively prompts for login credentials or a warning before the rule is deleted.

  4. L7, APPLICATION, AAA, self sourced firewall traffic

    self sourced traffic of the firewall services should be defined on a specific "micro service" address type loopback to simplify acl special security in the menu "system" "administration""device access" even if this special menu is greatfull

  5. Make a way to add to Sophos Connect "Allowed user" list without booting all currently connected Sophos Connect users.

    The title pretty much spells it out here. It's very disappointing that you can't add a VPN user without disrupting all your current VPN users...

  8. Discover dropped files from Intrusion Attacks

    In MONITOR & ANALYZE | Reports | Network & Treats, we'd like to have ability to see the name of the file that is attacking the network internally.

    i.e. The Intrusion Attack is: 'FILE-PDF Adobe Acrobat ImageConversion PCX Parsing Out-of-Bounds Write'. File name of source attack: 'malware.pdf'.

    We can use that info to search out the attacking file and delete it if not picked up by AV.

  9. DHCP Server Increase Subnet Size

    In Current version 18.0 Sophos XG doesn't allow to create DHCP server with more than /24 subnet size. it should be there otherwise there is no point of having DHCP server feature in bigger firewalls.

  10. Migration Assistant VM to support UTM 9.7+ Configurations

    Migration Assistant VM to support UTM 9.7+ configurations. Tested this recently at a customer's site, and the MA only accepts up to 9.605. This set me back by a few months of firewall changes.

    Also, I'm sure it's been suggested, but why is the MA not a web-based tool in the partner portal? A local running VM is a bit of overkill just to convert a file. Could even just boot your existing VM in Azure or AWS and have it refresh it's image every 60 minutes or so and give web login access to partners. Partner's log in, upload…

  11. IPv6 Stateful Firewall Bypass like you can for IPv4 using set advanced-firewall bypass-stateful-firewall-config

    Using set advanced-firewall bypass-stateful-firewall-config del sourcenetwork x.x.x.x sourcenetmask 255.255.255.0 destnetwork y.y.y.y destnetmask 255.255.255.0 works for Ipv4 but not Ipv6. Or if you can disable invalid packet blocking on Ipv6. This is especially needed when using asymmetric routing scenarios.

  12. AD Password Change using user portal

    I'm using AD as authentication service in my sophos xg.

  13. flowspec alert DDOS to routing subsystems from IDS

    When DDOS attack is detected, a web page should authorize the admin to send after validation
    a BGP FLOWSPEC message with preformated tupples acl to upstream routers with network traffic limitation or drop
    just to load balance the security defense between routers and the target or intermediary firewall

  14. office 365 SMTP Host set up

    Have a pre-configured O365 smtp host option, which includes all Exchange Online Protection IP address ranges. So we dont have to manually add in all of the reccomended ones from Microsoft

  15. manage TLD / ccTLD DNS lookup results in XG DNS

    Currently, blocking or redirecting TLD / ccTLD (https://icannwiki.org/Countrycodetop-level_domain) dns lookups for clients using XG dns requires configuring dns request routes for each one to send those lookups to an external Microsoft or other dns server populated with fake TLD / ccTLD zones and wildcard records. It would be simpler to be able to control lookup results within XG without having to route to an external server.
    This request was similar but applied only to web http traffic rather than the dns level to address all protocols: https://ideas.sophos.com/forums/330219-xg-firewall/suggestions/31267192-block-tld

  16. country blocking

    Country Blocking should have an option for blocking the uncategorized Public IPs,
    These are noted as not belonging to a country, these do not get blocked by default, I would like an inclusion of a group called "Uncategorised", and this would block all the Public IPs that have no categorisation, and exception can always be made later if they are required, this also happens on the SG UTM boxes as well.

  17. 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.

  18. XG firewall HTTP/HTTPS health checks for server load balancing rules

    If you have multiple IIS servers behind an XG firewall and you want to load balance them and each IIS server has multiple web sites configured(each with specific IP bindings) then the XG firewall with the TCP check on port 80 or 443 cannot tell that a site is down if the web site is stopped or its associated app pool is stopped to be able to remove that site from the load balancing pool.
    This is because IIS still responds to requests (with a 400/404 when the site is stopped or with a 503 when an app pool is…

  19. Network List

    Under IP Host, it would be great to have a Network List feature where we can add multiple networks, similar to IP List (which only allows for IP address' and not Networks).

  20. SD-WAN Support Forward Error Correction (FEC)

    Forward Error Correction (FEC) is a mechanism to recover lost packets on a link by sending extra “parity” packets for every group (N) of packets.

    Forward Error Correction (FEC) is a technology that is well known for its ability to correct bit errors at the
    physical layer. However, this technology can also be adapted to operate on packets at the network layer to improve
    application performance across WANs that have high-loss characteristics. With packet-level FEC, network equipment
    can reconstitute lost packets at the far end of a WAN link, avoiding delays that come with multiple round-trips
    retransmissions. This enables WANs…
