  1. Console (CLI) access

    I notice that I can access the device console (CLI) only via ssh/ web admin page if I am logged in as user "admin" which is the default user ID. Following are my thoughts on XG access I think would be good when looking from a security angle.

    1. It would be great if non-default user with Administrator profile would also be able to access the CLI(SSH). (It is always advisable to use non-default administrator IDs for device management.)
    2. This one is connected to suggestion above. The new administrator should be able to disable the default Administrator user "admin".

    • XG MTA Anpassung

      Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,

      wir würden uns wünschen das man auf der XG im MTA nach Betreffen sortieren kann.

      Außerdem würden wir uns wünschen, wenn man alle Checkboxen auswählt dies sich auch auf die anderen Seiten auswirkt.

      Mit freundlichen Grüßen

          • Improvement on Authentication-agent/Captive-portal/VPN-Agent window

            > Authentication-agent/Captive-portal/VPN-Agent window must inform user through Authentication-agent/Captive-portal/VPN-Agent about uploaded/downloaded data during authenticated session.

            > Authentication-agent/Captive-portal/VPN-Agent window must show info like Username, IP, MAC-ID, Email ID(optional), Uploaded data, Downloaded data, route table of local machine, Status of DNS server IP addresses used, local machine OS info, local machine hostname info, ping tool, trace route tool. This will simply troubleshooting for support agents and also reduce load on Firewall as remote agent is gathering info. If these info is forwarded to FW through secure channel then it would be great help for any network engineer.

            • Ability to add or update SSL VPN profile without dropping all tunnels

              Whenever you make a change to a SSL VPN Server connection in XG(Even the description!) it drops all connected sessions temporarily when you save the changes. I should be able to change the name or description on a server connection profile without dropping a session!

                • ADVPN

                  Please add ADVPN feature. It is very useful and requested option by the client.

                      • Ability to add a short description to a satic route

                        It would be nice, if you can add descriptions to static routes. So it's easier to see which route has which purpose.

                          • Support 6rd on WAN interface for IPv6

                            Some ISPs haven't fully implemented IPv6 yet and use 6rd for now (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPv6_rapid_deployment.) The problem is that the XG is unable to use IPv6 at all with these ISPs unless it is able to act as a 6rd client directly on the WAN interface. (It basically involves routing IPv6 traffic through a designated IPv4 gateway address.) Please implement this mechanism in the XG firmware.

                            Here is an example client implementation: http://www.centurylink.com/home/help/internet/modems-and-routers/technicolor-c2000t/ipv6-turn-on.html

                            • Get more details on attack types

                              Clicking on an attack type under the list of "Intrusion Attacks," for example should take you to a Sophos informational page that describes the attack so sysadmins can get more information on mitigation (just like the malware database) instead of just filtering on that attack type.

                                • IPS Signature details

                                  It is good to provide more details to an IPS signatures directly from the IPS policies/signature. This was found in Cyberoam last time but not available in Sophos.

                                  This is useful for the security admin to find a resolution to the "attack" rather than only bypassing it, without knowing what is going on.

                                  • IPSEC connection multiple endpoint IP

                                    When configuring an IPSEC connection to a remote site that has two ISP access it would be useful to have the option to add multiple remote IP address in the connection settings .
                                    Otherwise we are forced to create two IPSEC connections and one will always be down , until the remote site would failover to the second IP , and reported in the dashboard

                                    • Block l2tp and pptp requests at perimiter

                                      Today, it is quite possible to brute-force attack L2TP and PPTP as there is no way to drop incoming requests based on IP, geo or any other variable.

                                      I would like the ability to assign a network rule (or equivalent) that drops requests for such features before entering the firewall, before reaching authentication. Much like ACL exceptions for device access does.

                                      This is not possible today, and we have to contend with miles of logs with login requests and tries from far away, just probing for passwords.

                                        • download amount per day

                                          Would like the ability to run a report which shows the previous day data usage:

                                          Whole download amount for a day.
                                          Whole upload amount for a day.

                                          Our ISP provides us a daily report of Downloaded usage for our connection as well as Uploaded usage for our connection.

                                          It would be good to compare the XG Firewalls records with the ISP.
