  2. Improve high availability logging

    At the moment it is not possible to see if the the initial syncing proces is finished and the auxiliary device is ready the become the master. Please give us a log where this is visible.

    Most needed when testing the HA function on-site. We restart node 1 und see if node 2 takes over. After that, node 1 comes back on and we need to see when we can restart node 2.

  3. SFM - Overwrite whole configuration with template

    I'd like to have the possibility to overwrite the whole configuration of a firewall with the content of an SFM template. Currently when applying a template from SFM the firewall rules merge with the ones configured locally.
    I´d like to have the possibility of replacing, instead of merging and have full control of the firewall from SFM, like others vendors have from their management server.
    This is to avoid human errors by a local administrators. For example someone can log locally on the firewall and configure an any any permit, then you apply your template and that any any remains. …

  5. Ability to use FIDO 2 and U2F Tokens to log in into Sophos XG management website and user accounts

    Using FIDO 2 Tokens for logging passwordless in into the Sophos XG Firewall as an Administrator or User would make it more comfortable and secure to log in.
    Using it as a 2FA using the U2F standard would make the login much more secure.

  6. Deploy in the Sophos firewall to show in which rules an object is linked

    Deploy in the Sophos firewall to show in which rules an object is linked (host and services). This is very useful when I want to delete the object.

  7. Consistent and "advanced" table rendering throughout the product/UI

    This is for ALL Tables in the XG Gui and Portal.

    The Idea is having a consistent and advanced table rendering framework throughout the product/UI

    This is really annoying ... and almost any other web GUI based system has this "function" or framework.

    But the Voucher Table being the worst!

    So let's take the Voucher Table: (but applies/must apply to ALL UI places where tables are shown)

    - You can only sort by "Code" ?? ... no other Fields (>>ALL<< Fields should be sortable, searchable and filterable)! Always and in every table.
    - have an option to export to CSV …

  8. WAN Failover Options and Ranges

    WAN Failover needs at least to have ranges
    Example: Ping between 0 and 100 consider WAN up

    Packet Loss would even be better
    Example: Packet loss higher than 10% consider WAN down

    The other vendors have these options, WAN Failover is pretty useless when a line can have a 2000 ping and 75% packet loss and still be considered up... These are the most common problems with the biggest carriers in the US such as comcast...

  10. Stop auto loading the Live Graph

    When navigating to Diagnostics --> System Graphs the page automatically renders all the graphs for the last 2 hours. This forces you to wait to change the time period. Please stop the auto rendering, and allow the admin to select the time period and click the update button.

  12. 4G/5G USB Dongle Support

    I think it is high time Sophos updated the USB Dongle HCL to include modern technologies such as 4G/5G. With 3G ending for a lot of people soon many of the devices on the current list are about to become obsolete.

  13. Encrypted Backups - Option to use or not use

    Allow to not encrypt backups on XG Firewall 17.5. RIght now we are forced to do encrypted backups. It would be nice to have an option to skip it.

  14. Add Duo MFA integration to Sophos XG

    Apparently the older Sophos UTM has Duo MFA integration. Please build this into Sophos XG firewalls. Duo is extremely powerful, flexible, usable for individuals, companies or full-blown MSPs unlike most of the other MFA solutions available.

  16. More 2FA Choices

    Come on Sophos, it is 2019, give us more choices for 2FA already. You have your own 2FA service, why has that not been integrated into the XG?

  17. Running Schedule reboot and shutdown of XG 210

    As captioned Can sophos introduce this feature. so that we can shutdown and power-on the appliance by setting cron job or scheduler. We are not required to operate 24/7 and why should we keep the appliance ON unnecessarily during nights or weekends? Please advice as we have other Firewall appliance such as Fortigate, Cisco, Sonicwall and Juniper, all this is supporting. Why not XG sophos ?

  18. XG devices absolutely need auto power ON

    The XG devices lack auto power on in the event of a power outage. This is a must have for remote sites. Especially for a device that controls internet access

  19. Log Viewer: Filter the Firewall log to show entries with no User name

    One of the columns in the Firewall log is User name.
    If I click Add filter and choose User name in the Field box, my only options for Condition are: is, is not, Starts with and Does not start with.
    I need to find all of the log entries that have no User name. If I try to use the filter to see those entries by the Condition box to "is" and leaving the Value box empty, an error appears stating "You must enter a value for User name".

    To allow me to find all of the log entries that…
