  2. SSL VPN ACCOUNT LOCKOUT

    Similar to the admin lockout screen - it would be useful to block users logging into ssl vpn after x amount of incorrect attempts - either lockout for a predetermined amount of time or what would be awesome would be to lock and allow an admin to unlock.

  3. IPSec Remote Access mode should hand out IP's to Android clients

    We should be able to hand out virtual IP for users on a plain IPSec (not Sophos Connect) by config or by user static remote access IP defined.
    Sophos XG's IPSec configuration does not have the ability to configure "rightsourceip" when setting up Remote Access IPSec connection. With this ability we could use the built-in android IPSec XAuth VPN client and not rely on third party apps.

    [IKE] <AndroidIPSec-1|28> peer requested virtual IP %any
    [APP] <AndroidIPSec-1|28> [IPPOOL] (acquireaddress) acquireaddress...
    [APP] <AndroidIPSec-1|28> [IPPOOL] (acquire_address) Access Server not provided IP for user:
    [IKE] <AndroidIPSec-1|28> no virtual IP found for %any

  4. RED should have option to block traffic if it can't connect to principal site

    Il manque aux possibilités du RED le mode Transparent/Unifié. En effet pour nos clients Education il n'est pas possible que les accès Internet ne transitent pas par le XG. Si la liaison Internet ne fonctionne plus sur le site principal, il vaut mieux alors pour des raisons de sécurité que les élèves ne puissent plus accéder à Internet.

  7. Limit number of concurrent VPN connections

    Hi, If we have configured 40 VPN user ID under one group in Sophos XG, however we want only 4 users able to login at a time. We want to restrict VPN user access.

  8. Okta integration for SSO

    We use Okta as SSO portal for all our web applications. Would be great to be able to add a link to our Sophos XG User Portal and pass users straight in from Okta.

  9. Dual Tunnel AWS VPC VPN Connection

    We are looking to have both of our tunnels show that they are connected to our AWS VPC site-to-site VPN connection, but from what I can see online it only appears that one tunnel can be active at a time. This would be ok if the XG firewall could make both Connected, but only one active. The issue is that we get alerts from AWS that one of the tunnels is down, so we don't really have confirmation as to if there might be an issue with the other one, or not.
    We are using the Failover Group so they…

  11. The sophos connect client cannot select a bridge or no IP interface as the service interface

    When I was using SOPHOS Connect Client of XG firewall, I entered the configuration content and clicked application
    My firewall is bridged behind the gateway and switch (port1 area wan; port2 area LAN; IP address is given to the bridge port after wan bridging)
    However, I noticed that in the sophos Connect setting, only port2 port (area wan) can be selected as the VPN interface and bridge port cannot be selected, while port2 port has no IP state and shows NA. I suspect there is something wrong with this place
    Therefore, I tried to do the experiment, and configured a…

  13. Mobile (Portable) RED

    It would be fantastic to have a portable Wireless RED, such as a Netgear AC800S https://www.netgear.com.au/home/products/mobile-broadband/hotspots/AC800S.aspx with RED functionality. We could install this in our fleet vehicles where our officers have an in car computer and run it off of 12V. It would also help with staff who think its too hard to VPN into the network when abroad, to simply have the single device which gets them back to our network.

  14. SSL VPN (remote access) - edit options / advanced config - for .ovpn files

    Hello Everyone

    We should be able to edit some of the options of the .ovpn file

    Right now I need to manualy edit theese two options a lot in the .ovpn file directly:

    comp-lzo no -> yes (so SMB traffic does work)
    route-delay 4 -> 0 or 1 (so the route are set faster and remote ressources can be accessed immediatly)

    When there are a lot of users this is a lot of work as every user generates its own .ovpn file

    It would be really nice if this could be set for everyone on the XG UI or trough…

  15. Changing pre-shared key on one IPSec tunnel impacts all

    In XG, when the pre-shared key of one IPSec tunnel is changed, it affects all the tunnels. This problem was there in Cyberoam also. Kindly work to get rid of this behavior in future firmware releases.

  16. Provide Sophos Connect client and config download on Public IP

    Option to Download Sophos Connect Client and Config from LAN / WAN IP

    Enable Option, where we can configure the Sophos Connect Client and .scx file to be downloaded from Public IP. Something similar to the way it is for Sophos SSL VPN client.

  17. Increase idle timeout to 24 hours for SSL VPN remote users

    Currently the idle timeout for SSL VPN remote users is only 1 hour at maximum. Please increase it to 24 hours or longer as an option. We have remote users that run data sync through the VPN session for long hours and we do not want the user to be cut off because of a mere one-hour idle time. I'd imagine this is a relatively simple code change and has no negative effect on anything? Please help.

  19. Don't allow inline creating IP Range or IP List if they can't be used

    Establishing an IPSec between two XG devices and adding IP or Network is fine. But try adding an IP Range or a IP List. You are able to create it (and can see it later in Hosts and Services) but there is no way to choose it as a local or remote address type.

    This is quite confusing and shouldn't be there in the first place if it serves no purpose.

    Cheers.
