  1. Created user should receive a email from firewall

    If the administrator creates a user in the firewall,
    then the user should receive an email like "your user account is created and credentials for login"
    if you add this option in Sophos XG Firewall it will be very easy to the administrators or else admin wants to share the credentials to the user.

        • The ability to lag/trunk the main network port to create larger pipe with secondary and primary networks.

          The ability to lag/trunk the main network port to create larger pipe between secondary and primary networks. I could do this with TMG an 18 year old product, so why can't I do this with a much newer and better product?

          • Closes the ideas.sophos.com platform

            The idea of ideas.sophos.com is not bad.
            But you're playing with the hope of the users that something will really happen.
            The platform is not maintained either,
            There are a lot of features in it, allready realized since more than one version back.

            • zabbix

              Gostaria de sugerir a implementação do agente do zabbix nos equipamentos Sophos XG, a sugestão é devido a necessidade que temos atualmente de monitorar alguns XG, que estão trabalhando como brigde e não possuem acesso quando a origem é a internet, com a possibilidade do agente zabbix poderíamos configurar para que o mesmo enviasse as informações para nosso servidor no SOC, independente do IP de saída.

              Resumidamente ter a opção de trabalho ativo e passivo.

              • Separate Log Viewer and Policy Test

                Hello Support,

                Can we please have separate windows for log viewer and policy test.

                I'm often troubleshooting things and need to switch between log viewer and policy test however doing so clears my search parameters.

                If you try to open the viewer twice it just opens the original window. (Monitor & Analyse > Diagnostics > Pop-out tools)

                We used to be able to have multiple Log view windows.

                At present a work around is to copy the web address of the log viewer to a separate tab or window...

                Thanks,

                • Advanced NAT options for firewall rules

                  I have seen multiple forum posts about this and there's also some feature requests that all come down to the same issue: managing NATs kind of sucks on the XG!

                  On a user rule, the only thing we can do is masquerade. That's not always useful. There's no way to control DNAT and SNAT options in a good way. We don't have a proper way to set up a 1-to-1 NAT for a full network other than creating two business rules that are really not made for this purpose. It's completely unintuitive and not well designed.

                  The Network Address Translation…

                  • Export wildcard certificate

                    I would like the ability to export a certificate I imported into Sophos XG. This option is available UTM 9 but not XG.

                      • iView - Enter SMTP-Server with FQDN/Hostname

                        Obvious it's not a standart to enter a SMTP-Server in iVIew with it's FQDN/Hostname.
                        I only can use a IP-address - it's like back to the 90's.

                        • A way to automatize email regarding bandwidth usage

                          Some way to receive email regarding the usage of the bandwidth (basically this https://community.sophos.com/kb/en-us/123528 of every gateway, but by mail) because checking it directly into the XG every day is rather annoying.

                          • wan traffic

                            Per-WAN definition of available bandwidth.
                            Traffic shaping and WAN load-balancing, as currently defined in the XG don't allow us to take advantage of knowledge of the available connections.

                            In our typical use case, we have a secondary connection which it'd be great to load balance over, but we need to guarantee that we never use the last 10~20% of that connection as it's reserved for high-priority services that cannot sit behind the firewall.

                            In the SG this was easy; you defined an bandwidth limit per interface when setting up QoS; I'm not sure why someone was possessed to come up…

                              • Scheduled Reboot via SFM

                                Like in ACC/SUM it should be possible to have a scheduled reboot of an XG - vis SFM/CFM and the normal admin gui.
                                That could prevent additional work for admins.

                                • Standardize API tags for interfaces and VLANs

                                  Although similar, the tags used to create interfaces, LAGs and VLANs have discrepancies, mainly Zone Vs NetworkZone and IPAddress Vs IPv4Address.
                                  This makes it annoying to create a script to generate a mix of interfaces, LAGs and VLANs for new deployments.
                                  If the tags were the same, the networking details can be done by a single simple function, and tags specific for each type of interface in specific functions.

                                    XG wireless lack a way to identify devices connected to the APs as well as not able to see any kind of live usage data. In SG it's possible to see how a wide variety of wireless information and live data. This really is something required in Sophos XG

                                      Our concern is we have to analyze the traffic usage for each and every company(How much data was using by each company).
                                      For that we have to obtain the Traffic dashboard reports for a single subnet.
                                      Unfortunately, the feature was not available on the reports section, and we are allowed the different subnets from different rules so there is no feature like traffic dashboard reports based…

                                          Would be awesome to be able to see the progress of a scan from the users perspective instead of a dead screen and then have to guess when the scan is done.
