  2. 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.

  5. Rename objects

    Add support to rename Policy rules name, IPSEC and SSL VPN tunnels name, Webfilter Policy and Category objects, Application Policy and Category objects, QOS rules and all other items.
    This will Improve the management, it must be default to all objects. Currently to fix a simple typo error, we must to create a new policy or category and populate all items again. A simple task can turn into a hard task.

  9. SSL VPN policy with AD

    Add support to create SSL VPN connection to users from the specific Windows AD Group without needed to this user need login (By Captive Portal or Sophos Client) and after that associate the VPN policy.

    Today, If I have a specific group from Windows AD dedicated only to VPN users, I do not get associate VPN policy to these user if they do not login first by captive portal, Sophos client or SSO, after that I can associate it into a VPN policy. But if these users do not have HTTP access, I cannot set VPN policy.

    Carlos

  11. Add FreeDNS.afraid.org DynDNS Provider

    FreeDNS was on UTM 9, is there any reason why it has not been carried over to XG Firewall.... I for one would like to have FreeDNS enabled in XG firewall as I see no technical reason why it should not be there.

    or at least have a custom setting for Dynamic DNS that enables a feature to set Dynamic DNS via a url that can be called by curl.

    What we will do:
    Allow XG software installer to run on XG hardware appliances, after removing current partitions (same option as UTM9)

    What we are not planning:
    We will not allow software install to run trivially on a system currently installed with XG.
    We will not make any effort to support on-system wireless, on software installs.
    The system will not report itself in any way as an XG appliance, inside the OS.

  13. Adjustable column width and ordering.

    As a firewall administrator, I want the ability to adjust column width and column ordering in any log display in order to have better visibility of data I am monitoring for.

    As it stands, the log display grid is not intuitive, and requires scrolling down to get to the horizontal scroll before you scroll back up to see data.

    (Can be applied anywhere there is a grid display too.)

  14. SPX password specified by recipient queue the email

    When using SPX encryption for email protection, if we set the password type to "Specified by recipient" the email will get sent by the Sender; but a return message will come back saying "a password is not yet created by the recipient. You will be informed once it has been created and then you can send email to the recipient". Instead of making this a manual task for each encrypted email, XG should queue/hold the encrypted email waiting for a password to be made, then automatically send it to the recipient. This is how the email appliance SPX process works…

  18. Improve Logging

    At the moment understand what's going on is very HARD. Live logs are missing and notepad on every section is missing.
    Add live log and allow admins to configure itself coloured live logs (globally or on single windows?). In this way logs have different level of importance and Admins can better understand if they need to worry about or not. For example allows Admins to set red for high-risk/denied traffic/system error, yellow for warning/natted/or whatever and so on.
    I really love the live log on Firewall section of UTM9 where reading what's happen is very very easy.

  19. Enable/Disable Interface

    At the moment, there is no way to disable/enable an interface inside SFOS.
    Strange!Even using CLI menu.

  20. POP3/IMAP-More scanning option

    At the moment, scanning POP3/IMAP traffic does only allow to change subject or accept. A really antispam engine will block spam email even on these protocols. Please add more action options.
