    • define UDP and TCP Timeouts per firewall Policy

      My Idea. When I can define the UDP and TCP Timeouts per Firewall Policy I only have a higher risk in this connection. The general traffic has the "normal, general" UDP Timeout.

      Now we can only define the UDP Timeout generally in the console under Advanced-Firewall Settings. When we use VoIP Phones and the reregister Value is set to 600 seconds, I have to define the generally UDP Timeout >600. This is a big security risk.

      • It would be interesting if in leased DHCP, the total number of devices appeared, or it could be filtered by DHCP range. In cases where DHCP

        It would be interesting if in leased DHCP, the total number of devices appeared, or it could be filtered by DHCP range. In cases where DHCP is given to non-Sophos access points, it would be easier to filter around to see if there are any IP pending devices.

        • Allow subnet/ip directed broadcasts for Wake on LAN (WoL)

          Allow forwarding of udp-broadcasts to other subnets used by deployment-software like enteo or baramundi to wake up clients on remote sites.
          That feature is for example available with Cisco firewalls over the ip-helper service.

          • internet schema

            I want to Internet Schema feature on Sophos XG firewall.
            This features is very useful but it was removed on a new UTM. Therefore I don't want to upgrade my Cyberoam aappliance to Sophos XG Firewall

            • Add a hit counter to firewall rules alongside the traffic counter

              Add a counter for the number of times a firewall gets hit along with the amount of traffic on the rule.
              SG firewall had this and it made troubleshooting and monitoring easier. This would be a good addition, even if there was a "firewall rules" report that showed the number of hits per rule. All other reports prefer hits to bandwidth by default, but firewall page only shows bandwidth.

                • "Data limit (Traffic Shaping) reached contact administrator" intimation needs its pop-up to be displayed in front of screen or in "Client A

                  Client Authentication Agent pop doesn't display in front of current screen.
                  But instead of that can we get a notification in task bar application icon mentioning "Data limit has been exceeded contact administrator".

                  If this is not possible can we have a trigger inform of email, message etc mentioning your data limit has only **mb or customized option for the same.

                  • It would be nice to have warning before uploading config backup from one firewall hardware to another.

                    It would be helpful to have some sort of way that let us know if configuration back up is compatible to the new hardware before uploading it to the firewall such as we can not upload configuration backup from XG 85 to XG 210.

                      • The ability to lag/trunk the main network port to create larger pipe with secondary and primary networks.

                        The ability to lag/trunk the main network port to create larger pipe between secondary and primary networks. I could do this with TMG an 18 year old product, so why can't I do this with a much newer and better product?

                        • Closes the ideas.sophos.com platform

                          The idea of ideas.sophos.com is not bad.
                          But you're playing with the hope of the users that something will really happen.
                          The platform is not maintained either,
                          There are a lot of features in it, allready realized since more than one version back.

                          • Separate Log Viewer and Policy Test

                            Hello Support,

                            Can we please have separate windows for log viewer and policy test.

                            I'm often troubleshooting things and need to switch between log viewer and policy test however doing so clears my search parameters.

                            If you try to open the viewer twice it just opens the original window. (Monitor & Analyse > Diagnostics > Pop-out tools)

                            We used to be able to have multiple Log view windows.

                            At present a work around is to copy the web address of the log viewer to a separate tab or window...

                            Thanks,

                              • Scheduled Reboot via SFM

                                Like in ACC/SUM it should be possible to have a scheduled reboot of an XG - vis SFM/CFM and the normal admin gui.
                                That could prevent additional work for admins.

                                • Standardize API tags for interfaces and VLANs

                                  Although similar, the tags used to create interfaces, LAGs and VLANs have discrepancies, mainly Zone Vs NetworkZone and IPAddress Vs IPv4Address.
                                  This makes it annoying to create a script to generate a mix of interfaces, LAGs and VLANs for new deployments.
                                  If the tags were the same, the networking details can be done by a single simple function, and tags specific for each type of interface in specific functions.

                                  • Source IP Address not show in Live Users

                                    Cyberoam showed Source IP address of the users connecting, now this is not shown, nor does it provide an option to show fields. Also as Rohan Shastri, the mac addresses are no show as well.

                                      • Control Center Dashboard customization

                                        It would be nice to customize Control Center Dashboard to monitor live bandwidth usage.

                                        • red nat to internet ever in split mode

                                          when xg firewall goes down for power or connectivity problem, the red ,even if configurated in split mode, disconnect all user from internet. this is a real big problem because if central xg go down all other location with red can't work... is possible to add on the red a "warning" configuration that permit to red lan to navigate only to internet (lan) with a default configuration and return in standard mode when central xg go up?
