  1. HA Link for LAG port

    Current XG'S HA(-v18MR4) has SPOF against HA Link. Because HA link is available for only One-port/One-Link.

    If HA-Link port can be assigned LAG port, it's become more robust configuration against HA Link failure.

  2. 4G Data limits and reporting

    Being able to monitor, report and alert on the data usage that the 4G modules are using would be good, being alerted that an SD-RED or XG is consuming excessive data or putting a data cap/throttle on the system to prevent excessive charges is needed

  3. Multicast Forwarding For Entire Netywork

    It would be helpful if there was an option to select an entire network or a range of IP addresses for multicast forwarding. Currently, only individual IP addresses can be entered.

  7. Change mac-address to WAN alias

    Hello Team,
    I need you to implement the mac-address change function for Aliases. I would need to differentiate the mac-address between the ip associated with the physical card and the ip associated with the alias.
    I would not be wrong but in the SG series this was possible.
    Thank you.

  11. Sophos XG Home Hardware limits

    Considering the high internet connections already available to home users I think it would be important to at least increase the CPU's limit.
    Currently is 4 threads, whichs is a problem because in most home installations the firewall is virtualized and this means that you can only use 2 cores (4 threads).
    I think a limit of 8 threads would be fine. Right now the firewall with the IPS enable can hardly go above 300Mbps and I have 2 cores and 4 threads at 3.8 Mhz Zen2.

  12. Offer ruggedized industrial hardware models

    Offer hardware appliances rated for industrial environments like your competition does.

    https://www.fortinet.com/content/dam/fortinet/assets/data-sheets/FortiSwitchRugged.pdf

    Maybe Team up with a company like Welotec and use something like their Arrakis platform. Or take it a step further and make your own. A ruggedized RED would be the only device of its kind in the industry and ensure sales of rugged XG devices.

    Don’t let market share slip away on this HUGE opportunity, critical infrastructure is in dire need of the type of devices you are so good at producing. Once the industry starts standardizing on a particular product they tend to…

  13. Update the BIOS on SG to change the HW ID so it appears as an XG once upgraded to SFOS?

    Right now we can upgrade later SG models to the latest firmware and essentially turn them into an XG at least from a firmware standpoint. Unfortunately they still show up as SG models which in turn prevents us from creating an HA pair with the same exact XG model even though the hardware is virtually identical. If you compare an SG230 Rev.1 and an XG230 Rev.1 they appear to be exactly the same. Why not give us a BIOS update so our upgraded SG model can now become an XG?

  14. Device ID indicators

    It would be nice to have a feature like most servers to have a light on front and back of hardware that could be turned on from web interface to identify the box.

  15. SPF+ Module for cable-connection

    Hi, more and more small cusomters don't have DSL but cable based internet. So a SPF+ based cable-connection (like new DSL) would be a good thing.

  16. XG Firewall model with native GSM port

    hi guys have you guys ever thought of enabling your sophos devices to work with GSM cards directly without having another device connected to it via the Ethernet port,i,e have a GSM card slot on it for clients who use the 4G enabled simcards?
