  1. CLI - More basic commands to manage XG

    Give us the chance to manage XG basic features from CLI, such as:

    creating/editing/deleting network objects
    creating/editing/deleting services
    creating/editing/deleting users/groups
    creating/editing/deleting ips/application control/web policies
    creating/editing/deleting and managing VPN

    and more.....

  2. ip tunnel - local endpoint - Possibility to choose an interface instead of fixed IP

    If you have DHCP on the WAN interface and also an IP-Tunnel which terminates there, it would be great if you can configure the local endpoint dynamically. (Take the IPv4 value of interface Port1)

  4. View logs for "any"

    In the log viewer, you have to choose the log View what you want to view for System, Web Filter, .. etc.
    Because of you can add filter options like an IP address, would be better if you can see all logs related with that filter at the same time.

  5. Able to go to the config menu in the path elements

    Would be useful if you can click in the tree menu path to go back in the config options.

    For example in System > System Services > Web Proxy if you can click in "System Services"

  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).

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  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. Automatic Firewall Rule and Group

    At the moment, automatic firewall rule is not available in any option as it was with UTM9. For example when you setup a new site-to-site or vpn. This is very useful and time saving. Also add inside Policy Section "Automatic Firewall Rules view".
    Last, add the chance to create Groups so we are able to group rules together.

  12. Bring RED Tunnels to UTM's and also to Sophos XG

    I would love to be able to create RED tunnels to other Sophos Firewall XG devices aswell as Sophos UTM's.

    This was a big disappointment to myself who used RED tunnels between UTM's

  13. Improve Signature Policy GUI (IPS/AppCtrl)

    In the moment it is a mess to select IPS Signatures and Applications in the
    GUI, which additionally doesn't fit in the browser window very well.
    Did i mention the (small) scroll bar on the right?

    Please adjust the IPS and AppCtrl GUI according to best practices.

  14. 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.

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

  17. 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

    Best regards,

    Carlos Cesario

  19. Add support SNMP service to multiple WAN interfaces

    Currently this makes impossible an efficient monitoring of appliances (Copernicus) with multiplpe WAN interfaces.

    The SNMP server only works through a unique WAN interface.

    Best regards,

    Carlos
