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.
1) You can change the port in XG18, but you CANNOT use 443/tcp (conflict with WAF)
2) You can use second XG installation without WAF and use 443/tcp for SSL VPN, however it is paid license it is NOT free.
The feature is already available on v18.
we need this one !!
Please fix this
Just install second XG firewall as virtual machine (free base license) and use SSL VPN on 443/tcp there. It’s not best, but it will work.
Why does SSL VPN bind to every single external IP?
There has been some really bad decision when XG were created. On UTM you could USE 1 single IP and still run SSL VPN, WAF etc on port 443 no problem.
I am deeply disappointed on XG and regret we purchased it when we selected new firewalls.
I feel Sophos is not focusing on fixing problems users wants to be fixed but instead focuses on adding new features.

So with 17.1 you made it possible to change the SSLVPN Port. But you cant change it to 443 once there is a WAF Rule active on 443.
As long the Customer has enough external IPs, that should be not a Problem. Please fix that!
Please fix this. It’s been over a year. I should pull back out my utm and scrap XG firewall. Not happy Sophos. I knew you better then this as well. This feature is more then a priority it’s friggin’ extremely URGENT!!!!! Do you care about customer relations / service?????
wow, I'm glad I didn't update from UTM.
looking forward to yhis in 17.1. Visit locations were ISP blocks non-standard ports.

Will come with SFOS 17.1 ;)

With network filters existing as they do almost everywhere... how is this feature still not available...?
please make this happen - it is a much needed feature for smaller companies

How about an update on the ability to change the SSL VPN port now that v17 has been released? Thanks
V17 was just released and its still not possible to to change the port. I ma pretty disappointing at this point. This feature should be added.
VPN is the best way ? ... please implement that now or ASAP...
XG offers Guest Wifi solutions with a lot of restriction but does not allow port switching for VPN ... the solution must be able to work in both directions when we are the hosts and when we are the customers
