  1. Hotspot Portal listen on RED Interface.

    Problem is that it is not possible to choose a RED Interface within a Hotspot Definition.
    So you cannot route a client from a branch office to a Hotspot Portal to authenticate. We have a guest Network in a branch office in an own vlan behind a RED50. I thought that the utm and xg Firewall have feature parity on RED and Wireless Feature... NO they dont have!

  2. Notified abount Access Point UP / Down

    it could be nice to receive notification about the status of AP connected to XG (Wireless Protection), actually the state is displayed on the dashboard (numer of total AP / number of AP connected) but it is not a warning, there is no log in the Wireless Security section related to an AP that goes offline. Also in SFM there is no specific Alert/Notification about AP state.

  5. voucher limitation to 50

    Hotspot Voucher creation should'nt be limited to 50.

  6. Radius SSO support in wireless enterprise authentication - forward accounting request to RADIUS Server

    Radius SSO via wireless enterprise authentication does not currently show the authenticated user in the live activities on the XG interface since Accounting requests are not forwarded from the Sophos Access Points. Can an update provide this functionality so users who connect via RADIUS authentication can be authenticated to the XG and therefore have web policies applied to their accounts.

  7. 802.11 k

    Apple Devices & WiFi:
    So everybody knows that Apple has its own opinion for WiFi Roaming and switching to the next AP with the best wifi signal. I think it's a good idea to implement the 802.11k standard to Sophos AccessPoints, according to the knowledge page from Apple at: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202628 where they talking about the 802.11k Standard. Maybe this is a solution for Apple devices that have connection issues and do not want to switch the access point.

  8. fast transition option for WPA2/WPA Enterprise security mode

    If we can have fast transition option for security mode WPA2/WPA Enterprise. It will be helpful when users move from one access point to other access point.

  9. vouchers support on device

    Hotspot vouchers should be supported on limited devices only, for example for guest-1 voucher will be limited to be used on only one device and for guest-2 voucher will be limited to be used on 3 devices.

  10. WI-FI connectivity status and usage

    XG wireless lack a way to identify devices connected to the APs as well as not able to see any kind of live usage data. In SG it's possible to see how a wide variety of wireless information and live data. This really is something required in Sophos XG

  13. Support for WPA3

    I realize that it's a new standard, and the WFA is only just now beginning to certify devices, but are there plans to attain WPA3 certification for Sophos AP and managing firewalls?

  15. Restart Wireless Access Point Function

    Each access point should be able to be restarted. This helps in two ways:

    1. Perform a OS restart of the Access Point if 'turning on and off' the wireless network does not work
    2. Allows you to see a port blip on the POE switch to confirm what port the AP is connected to in remote areas

  16. Remote Restart of Wireless Access Point

    I'm facing a issue of High Latency on my Wi-Fi network with Sophos XG 230. While troubleshooting the same, I thought of restarting the APs to see if that helps. I'd to go and do that manually by going to every place the APs are installed. In a 6Floor building and 3 satellite office connected on fiber, with more than 15 APs, its a bit tough job to do so.

    Request to enable a function in the OS to restart the APs remotely,

  17. voucher

    It would be useful to allow the admin user to place a comment/description against each individual voucher for audit purposes.

    On the UTM after vouchers were generated the admin user was able to edit the Comment/Description field. They use this to record the user that receives the voucher.

    Currently on the XG, this field is not editable after the vouchers are generated.

  19. MAC Address Groups for WiFi with being able to add a Name to the MAC address for SG & XG

    This will be a well sought after feature as people often leave the company or upgrade their devices and searching for the old MAC address becomes a daunting task when we need to update it or remove it.

    Can you add the feature where it allows us to create a MAC group and in it able to create individual users with multiple MAC addresses. That we can assign to a Wifi network.

    As the current setup in the SG & XG, in MAC hosts we have to enter each mac address to a list, times how many users in that…
