  1. XG as NTP Server

    NTP Server is a small package and UTM9 has it. In some small organization, having a central NTP server is a nice feature.
    Can you add it into future release?

    You can put it inside device access, denying WAN from using NTP server for security reason.

    • Improve Logging

      At the moment understand what's going on is very HARD. Live logs are missing and notepad on every section is missing.
      Add live log and allow admins to configure itself coloured live logs (globally or on single windows?). In this way logs have different level of importance and Admins can better understand if they need to worry about or not. For example allows Admins to set red for high-risk/denied traffic/system error, yellow for warning/natted/or whatever and so on.
      I really love the live log on Firewall section of UTM9 where reading what's happen is very very easy.

      • Change SSL VPN Port

        Right now it is not possible to change the SSL VPN Port by GUI. Port 8443 is used by default. Please add the possibility to change, because Port 8443 is not allowed in many networks.

        • Let's Encrypt Integration

          It would be very nice if Let's Encrypt certificates (letsencrypt.org) can be generated directly from the XG Gui. So that the "Let's Encrypt Client" is integrated in the XG. Would it be possible?
          Best Regards

          • Can we have live Bandwidth speeds for Interfaces?

            It would be great to be able to see live Bandwidth speed stats for each Interface like we had on UTM.

            • Enable/Disable Interface

              At the moment, there is no way to disable/enable an interface inside SFOS.
              Strange!Even using CLI menu.

              • Rename/Comment Physical Interface objects

                It should be allowed to change the name of Physical Interface objects from default PORTx name to custom one.
                Also, comment attribute/field should be added for additional description (like it was available in UTM9).

                    • Scheduled Installation of the AV Updates and Frimware Installation.

                      Scheduled Installation of the AV Updates and Firmware Installation is required. The firmware updates and AV Updates should get automatically downloaded over the WAN interfaces, however installation of this updates should be done only when the Date and time is scheduled by the Network Administrator.

                      In addition to the available scheduling options, the custom category should be added, where in the administrators can select a custom date and custom time, after selecting the custom date and custom time the system should prompt if these settings are just to be executed once, daily, weekly, every 15 days or monthly.

                      • Allow Configuration of DHCP Options

                        UTM 9 had great DHCP options that you could assing globally or to an individual pool. For people with VoIP deployments this is Huge.

                        • Notification Rules

                          At the moment no way to customize notification. I receive mail when the WAN gateway is down/up.
                          You need to provide us a way to create rules where we can decide when receive notification, alert level (warning, information, critical),who will receive the notification. As soon you integrate SMS, please also allow us to receive SMS (it is an old way) but when the mail does not work....
                          I would suggest you to create a panel as the Network Policy Rule rule to manage notification rules.

                            • Username of Admin should be chagable

                              Currently, the WebAdmin Master-User is fix named as admin. It would be great, if we would have the possibility to change the username. This would be an improvement for brute-force attacks, when the WebGUI is somehow published to the Internet.

                                This is being considered. The current intention is to add a superadmin role, making the default admin account just a member of that role.

                                This will allow you to create new superadmin accounts, capable of logging into the shell, adding ssh keys, and any other features limited currently to the named admin account.

                                Second, you will be able to disable or demote the named admin account.

                              • Sophos VPN app for mobile platforms

                                Sophos should develop an own VPN app for mobile operating systems (iOS / Android / Windows Phone) which can connect via the UTM using the configuration pushed from the UTM to the SMC server.
                                It should also support the Per-App-VPN feature which was introduced in iOS 7.

                                  • Rename objects

                                    Add support to rename Policy rules name, IPSEC and SSL VPN tunnels name, Webfilter Policy and Category objects, Application Policy and Category objects, QOS rules and all other items.
                                    This will Improve the management, it must be default to all objects. Currently to fix a simple typo error, we must to create a new policy or category and populate all items again. A simple task can turn into a hard task.

                                    Best regards,

                                    Carlos

                                    • Allow interface port to be configured with just vlans

                                      As it is right now you must assign an ip address to an interface and then add vlans. doesn't allow you to just assign vlans.

                                      • default source port when adding new services to "1:65535"

                                        Would be nice if the source port was already pre-populated like it was in UTM9

                                        • Add support to choose both protocols (TCP/UDP) in Service object

                                          Currently we have to create a separated rule to each protocoal TCP/UDP.

                                          Best regards,

                                          Carlos
