  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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Enable/Disable Interface

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

  6. 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).

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  13. 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

  14. 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

  15. Add options for IPv6 DHCPv6-PD

    My ISP supports native IPv6, they support prefix delegation using DHCPv6-PD to assign a /56 subnet. They do not assign the WAN interface an IPv6 address (i.e. no IA-NA) and only provide a prefix delegation (IA-PD). Currently XG (and UTM9) doesn't work with my ISP to get a PD because there are no options to request IA-PD only. My ISP edge router will respond to a solicit message with a IA-NA and IA-PD request but it would appear that the XG doesn't conform to RFC7550 when it sends a IA-NA message and receives a "NoAddrsAvail" from my ISP edge router.

  16. Firmware notification

    XG looks like Sophos Standard. On Email Virtual Appliance, when I have a new pending firmware to install, I recieve an email saying that a new firmware is available to install and it will be installed at .... (I have automatic upgrade during the night). Inside the email, I have the link to release notes.
    Please implement this feature to XG too.

    What we will do:
    Allow XG software installer to run on XG hardware appliances, after removing current partitions (same option as UTM9)

    What we are not planning:
    We will not allow software install to run trivially on a system currently installed with XG.
    We will not make any effort to support on-system wireless, on software installs.
    The system will not report itself in any way as an XG appliance, inside the OS.

  20. A way to check the real time bandwidth usage for rules

    Is there a way to check the real time bandwidth usage for firewall rules?

    So user can distinguish which rule used the most bandwidth and set the proper QoS for it.

    Thanks~
