  3. DNS support for SRV Records

    Add support for SRV records in XG's DNS service according RFC 2782. This would enhance XG's ability to operate in Windows environments; i.e., support Active Directory.

  4. Firewall rule filters should be persistent

    If you filter firewall rules, then edit a rule, the filtering is lost and you have to re-apply the filter. This is a nightmare when you need to update 10 different firewall rules. Filtering should be maintained until it is cleared.

  5. Google Apps based User Authentication via SAML

    Hello, we currently use Google Apps for user management. For many apps, we use SAML to talk to Google Apps for user authentication.

    In small environments where Active Directory is not in place, it would be great to have SAML/SSO via Google.

  6. Consolidate Setup Wizards in single menu

    As it stands there are two Setup Wizards in XG that I've used. One is the initial setup under Admin (top right corner) > Wizard and the other is for VPN under VPN > IPSec > Wizard.

    If possible it would be good to have these consolidated into a single Setup Wizard menu located under the Admin dropdown in the right corner. This way as more setup wizards are added like for Firewall rules, SSLVPN, or other task they can all be accessed via one central location.

  7. Better routing by default with site-to-site VPN tunnels

    When an XG firewall is connected to another firewall via VPN, the XG firewall cannot route traffic to the remote protected network by default. Instead, you have to set up a special route and SNAT using the console in order for it to work and you are apparently required to specify hosts rather than whole networks when setting up the route (see https://community.sophos.com/kb/en-us/123334).

    The UTM9 firewall can route traffic through the VPN tunnel by default. I can't believe this problem is a "feature" in XG. Adding extra steps to make something work less well than something that just automatically…

  8. Add hostname in email notifications

    When receiving notifications for multiple XG appliances there is no clue in the mail about which appliance it is coming from ...
    Is it possible to just add the appliance hostname in subject, just lige UTM SG do ...
    Actually the only way is to set a per-device (not really existing) sender email address and that is not a good practice nor very convenient

  9. Create group with LDAP custom attribute

    UTM 9 is easier to create a group based on LDAP attribute. In XG via Configure> Authentication> Group> Add Members we did not find it

  10. Sending only 1 quarantine report to user

    Currently the quarantine digest sends a report to very e-mail adres that is configured as a user.

    When user1 had 1 email address it gets 1 report
    When user2 has 3 email addresses it gets 3 quarantine reports these other two are duplicates, so only need to be send once.

  12. POP3/IMAP-Increase email scan limit

    Please increase POP3/IMAP email scan size limit from 10 MB to at least 50 MB as for SMTP. It is not acceptable to have security only until 10 MB. Denying is also no option, if you want to keep your business communication going.

  14. Specify time of day in report begin/end time

    I would like to see time based (not by dates alone but by time - like 7:00pm to 7:00am)

    A major use case for this is web usage reporting sorted by nodes, network or firewall rules.

    I'd like to see this as a drill down of the web usage activity reports.

  15. Multipath rules and same wieghting as SG

    There is no ability on the XG to place Multipath rules or set the weight of an internet line to 0.

    For example on the SG you can set a weight as 0 and then create a multipath rule to route certain traffic out via different gateways, and if that gateway goes down it automatically routes traffic out of the next.

    This is a basic feature of any firewall.

  16. Dynamic DNS: Ability to enable/disable updating per-host

    It would be nice, to have again a switch, as it is in UTM, to disable or enable the entry.
    This way you can not prepare host names and switch them on, when you want' to go live with them.

  17. Can XG firewall user authentication be added to Sophos endpoint client?

    Sophos endpoint client already has users information. Why not have that info shared directly so authentication does not need multiple configuration points.

  18. Add more applications for various XBOX, PS4 &other video games

    Many online games are detected (incorrectly) as various tunnels/proxies or P2P applications. more work needs to be done to detect games such as
    GTA5
    Elder Scrolls Online
    Rainbow Six:Siege
    etc.
    This will allow us to use the application filter to allow games from our residential network while still blocking malicious & unpermitted applications.
    Thank You

  19. SPX Portal on port 443 in stead of 8094

    It is only possible to use ports between 1025 and 65535 for the spx portal. Receipients behind a firewall which block non standard ports will not be able to choose a password for encryption. I know port 443 is being used for the user portal so it will conflict so maybe use an alias for both. Just like the ssl vpn port not able to use port 443 is a major flaw in this product.

  20. Field Mapping Between Firewall & Active Directory

    For all the users fetched from active directory on to the firewall, the firewall admin should be able to mapping active directory field to the username fields on the firewall.

    Please check this thread from Sophos Community for more Information.

    Hope to see it soon in SFOS
