  1. Scheduled Installation of the AV Updates and Firmware 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.

  2. 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.

  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. Enable/Disable Interface

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

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. Ability to change default Admin username

    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.

  11. 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

  12. 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.

  14. Improve the WAN Gateway monitor

    Improve the WAN Gateway monitor. Add Latency thresholds, Packet Loss thresholds.
    This can help much to prevent false positive gateway status.
    The same feature could be added on VPN Failover system

  15. 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~

  16. Force delete object

    At the moment, if you try to remove a object used somewhere (Policy Rule for example) a message appears saying that "the object is already in use." So give us where the object is in use and allow Admins to delete it.
    You can add an extra column with number of times the object has been used and give LINK where the object is used so we can go directly to the place and check if can delete it or not.

  19. Know where an object is in use

    Know where an object is in use. By selecting the object you have the option to report on which rules, policies, etc. are added.
    This will allow cleaning of objects, making it easier to manage and maintain them.

    This should also include the ability to locate unused objects across the UI and delete them if they are no longer needed.

  20. Improve Live Connection TAB information

    We are really missing interface consumption (up and down in real time) along with flow monitor. To understand who is consuming the bandwidth we can use Live Connections tab which is poor at the moment. At least can you add at each colum the sum?

    For example under Downstream bandwidth you should add the sum of all the rows ot the Bandwidth column in order to know how much bandwidth is consumed. If 20 applications are inside the network (20 is a small number) could let us know if is the case to block some applications.

    Other info on the…
