  1. Create Inline OVPN File for Site to Site SSLVPN

    As it is now the Site to Site SSLVPN server still exports the now ancient Astaro .epc/.apc format. Give us the option or switch over to creating a more "universal" inline .OVPN file that can be used with clients other than Sophos gateways. We can easily convert the .epc to .ovpn with a script like we have been doing for the past, oh I don't know, 8 years, but don't you think it is time to leave the past behind? I mean I can login to the user portal and download an ZIP file that contains an ovpn configuration, whay…

  2. Support VPN Configuration from Microsoft Intune and Windows 10

    Microsoft have been working on their Intune Solution which includes a way to configure a VPN policy that is deployed. There are a number of "Connections" available from other vendors but Sophos are not present. It would be great if Sophos would create a "UWP VPN plug-in" which will allow us to be able to configure VPN's via this. If using Autopilot in the future too a VPN maybe required if not in the office and this same configuration is used.

  3. VPN Architecture

    Sophos should develop a new User friendly policy for shifting from One network to another through VPN. As in Cyberoam we used to install a client and whenever we need to shift from One VPN to other just we just import specific Configuration file and start with the network login using credentials but in case of Sophos its different every time i have to download a entire setup file. When using many networks it becomes a problem. We need to think re structure the design

  4. Improve problems of RED devices.

    Please make sure that existing "RED" does not reconnect when new "RED" is added.

    Each time we add or change the setting VPN is disconnected, so customer complaints are coming.

  6. Harden SSL VPN (OpenVPN) Configuration

    SSLVPN uses a weak cipher, AES-128-CBC, which is rapidly aging at this point. Couple that with a lack of TLS Auth protection and you have a pretty insecure implementation of OpenVPN. Either up your game and default to a stronger cipher or let us decide which one we want. Also need the ability to enable TLS Auth if we so desire.

  7. Expose more OpenVPN Configuration Options

    SSL VPN is based upon OpenVPN, it would be great if you could expose more of the options available to that platform. OpenVPN is a very powerful piece of software and can do many things, however, the implementation on the XG prevents us from accessing that power. I also noticed that the cipher used is a pretty weak 128 bit one, would be great if we could choose the cipher. TLS-Auth is also not enabled which would be an added plus.

  8. SSLVPN OTP SELECTABLE PER PROFILE

    Need to have the ability to choose which SSL VPN server (OpenVPN) uses OTP. As it is now OTP is applied accross the board to ALL SSL VPN connections. We use devices that logon as SSL VPN users, enabling OTP on SSL VPN breaks that ability. We don't wish to disable OTP on SSL VPN as that would make it less secure for actual users that need to login to SSL VPN. What would be ideal is the ability to have one profile for devices that needs no OTP and one for users that does. An alternative to this would…

  9. Make Cisco VPN Client Client Functional Or Replace it with Cisco Any Connect VPN Client

    As Cisco Vpn Client is now obsolete and no more supported by Cisco, it doesn't work with Sophos XG as said by one of Sophos Technical Support Team member, names " Yagnik Goswami "in my service request number "8232842".

    As there is still the "Cisco VPN Client" option is available in Sophos XG so it should also be working fine or Sophos has to give its replacement option of "Cisco Any Connect".

    As this thing is annoying the costumer so Sophos must think on this matter seriously.

    Best Regards

  13. Split tunnel to support FQDN Host based route as the permitted network resources

    Hi,

    We need to have SSLVPN with split tunnel that can support route to FQDN based hosts (eg. nowadays some of webservices are using dynamic public IP addresses to provide their high availability)

    This capability is on the SG UTM SSLVPN, where we can add multiple permitted network resources, from a single IP address, group of ip ranges (Network group), and FQDNs. But currently the Sophos XG SSLVPN split tunnel "permitted network resources" is limited only to IP Host.

    Regards
    Yo.

  15. vpn ssl interface

    Ability to bind SSL VPN to a single interface.

    Currently when SSLVPN is enabled it listens on all interfaces regardless of what is set in Local ACL's.

    We need the ability to bind this to a single interface, if we use port 443 for SSL VPN as many want to it limits our ability to run WAF/DNAT for web servers on separate interfaces on 443.

  19. 3rd party VPN Client Support

    Since the Sophos IPSec client is not compatible with the XG product, and the SSL client does not support MSGina (Logon Before Windows) how about implementing compatibility with external VPN Clients like The Green Bow.

    Make an option to download a compatible config file which can be imported into the client configuring the VPN options.

    The XG product IPSec configuration downloads a config file for the original EliteCore IPSec client which was always lacking this feature.

    The Green Bow VPN client can be used with IPSec client VPN's, and the MSGINA support functions correctly.
