  2. Bring back Web Filter override for specific AD groups

    In Sophos UTM there was an option to allow specific user groups to override a URL block under Web Filtering. This was really useful for educational environments so our teachers could bypass unintentional blocks for kids. Please bring it back! :)

  3. Can we have live Bandwidth speeds for Interfaces?

    It would be great to be able to see live Bandwidth speed stats for each Interface like we had on UTM.

  4. Editing Policies at one

    It will be nice to have the possibility to editing multiple Policies at the same time by having a check box on the left (as it is already available on Services Objects) and be able to perform general modification, such as:

    enable/disable logging
    edit MASQ
    edit users/groups member
    enable/disable heartbeat
    allow/deny/reject action
    change Application/IPS/Web filtering
    malware scanning option

  6. Dynamic DNS - Create own providers like possible with SMS Gateways

    Create own providers under Dynamic DNS like it's done under SMS Gateways like to update IPv6 Tunnel endpoints when the WAN IP changes or third party DynDNS Services.

  7. 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)

  8. add AICCU support (ipv6 sixxs.net)

    Add AICCU support (Like on UTM) [https://www.sixxs.net/tools/aiccu/] for Sixxs.net ipv6 tunnel handling.

  9. Drop Zones

    Drop the whole concept of Zones in the access policies. They are redundant when the polices already state the networks and the interfaces.

    That is to say, a Zone means nothing when you already have to define the source network an the interface it arrives on.

  10. Add OpenDNS DynDNS Provider

    Just migrated from UTM to XG. It's fantastic. One small thing, please bring back support for OpenDNS dynamic DNS. Please, please.

  11. 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.

  12. 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"

  13. Assigning static ip to SSL VPN users

    It would be very convenient to assign static ip to users logging in through SSL VPN client. Currently this feature is available only to L2TP and PPP users.

  14. Sophos XG Unified firewall Business application should accept a host/services object

    Under: Policies
    Security Policies

    Adding a Business application non-HTTP rule you should have the option to use "Objects > Hosts and Services > Services" objects as the Port Forwarding target.

    This reduces the rules required and keeps it more unified..

    At the moment you need to add multiple rules I.E. A hosted service uses a mixture of single ports, port ranges and both tcp/udp will require multiple rules to achieve something very simple.

  15. Network Agent for Mobile

    Tried network agent to authenticate users and it is a very nice feature.

    Once installed, you connect with mobile to user portal, download certificate and import inside the APP.
    However I would suggest to add an option inside the APP that allow the APP to work only when the mobile is connected using a specific SSID Wi-Fi connection. At the moment, the only integrated option are:

    Save Password

    Auto Login

    This ensure that user do not need to open the APP when they are back to work and save battery.

  16. 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).

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. WAF: more authentication type

    At the moment there are different type of authentication missing even on UTM9 against ISA server 2006, such as:

    1. Two-factor authentication using forms-based authentication and a client certificate.
    2. Delegation of credentials by using NTLM or Kerberos authentication.
    3. Kerberos constrained delegation.
    4. Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) client certificate constraints

    In this way, XG and UTM9 are the very alternative to ISA Server.
