  1. WIFI - HOTSPOT - Email authentification with report

    It's was a good idea to create just email authentification in Hotspot and to have report with all mail. Free Wifi is good but a lot of Customer want to have a revenu with free wifi.

  2. Email Quarantine and SMTP spool management

    A feature to allow Admins to do the following:
    - View and perform actions (delete, download, deliver, report FP) on SMTP and POP3 Quarantine
    - View the SMTP mail spool and perform actions (delete, download, view, bounce, retry)
    - View SMTP log, with filters, searching, sorting
    - View corrupt/undeliverable SMTP messages and perform actions (delete, download)

  3. Web Filter exceptions based on User Agent

    I believe this is related to an existing suggestion:
    http://feature.astaro.com/forums/330219-sophos-xg-firewall/suggestions/10944024-resolve-netflix-streaming-issue

    UTM customers are able to get around Netflix streaming issues using the workaround detailed here: https://www.sophos.com/support/knowledgebase/121646.aspx
    This involves creating an exception for traffic based on its User Agent. There is no option to do this when configuring exceptions in XG as far as I can tell.

  4. Customize Logo for SPX Portal

    Like the UTM allow for a custom logos to be uploaded and used for the SPX portal page (possibly block pages as well?). This is currently not available when making SPX templates.

  6. Notification Rules

    At the moment no way to customize notification. I receive mail when the WAN gateway is down/up.
    You need to provide us a way to create rules where we can decide when receive notification, alert level (warning, information, critical),who will receive the notification. As soon you integrate SMS, please also allow us to receive SMS (it is an old way) but when the mail does not work....
    I would suggest you to create a panel as the Network Policy Rule rule to manage notification rules.

  8. Two IPSec Peer on VPN Configuration

    We have more customer with many branches and two or more Internet connection. We want to enable a Singla VPN SA that could be terminated on two differents Peer IPSec Gateway, so we can create a reliable VPN Connection that can use two different Internet connection, depend on what we can specify as first and second Remote Peer VPN.

  9. Add options for IPv6 DHCPv6-PD

    My ISP supports native IPv6, they support prefix delegation using DHCPv6-PD to assign a /56 subnet. They do not assign the WAN interface an IPv6 address (i.e. no IA-NA) and only provide a prefix delegation (IA-PD). Currently XG (and UTM9) doesn't work with my ISP to get a PD because there are no options to request IA-PD only. My ISP edge router will respond to a solicit message with a IA-NA and IA-PD request but it would appear that the XG doesn't conform to RFC7550 when it sends a IA-NA message and receives a "NoAddrsAvail" from my ISP edge router.

  10. Enable selectable SSL certificate for SMTPS scanning

    The Email Protection lacks ability to select a specific host certificate for an exposed SMTP server. Right now only CA certificate can be chosen and host certificate is dynamically created. SSL Certificate in Email Protection could be assigned the same way Web Certificate is in Web Protection.

  12. time of click protection

    For real protection from malicious emails, this is one of the best way to protect organization. This hasn't been in Sophos email appliance, UTM but I wonder if they will be adding it to XG. Without this, there is no easy way to compete with Fortinet/Proofpoint ... I won't even mention this is demanded by customers.

  13. Manual renew DHCP button on the Wan interface

    In UTM Wan interface there is a button for renew DHCP. There is not such button in the XG Wan interface.

  14. Email addresses should be case insensitive

    When viewing the various dashboards, email addresses should not be split into separate entries if someone used various case (all lower case, all upper case, some lower and some upper case).

  15. Objects/Rules/Service Bulk Insert

    Now is not possible to do a bulk insert of objects, services and policy. This cold be very useful when you migrate from other vendors or you want to preconfigure a new devices

  17. Export Configuration in a human-readable format

    At the moment export full configuration is easy with the new option but we need some way to export full configuration or part of it where the config. is full readable as it is possible with UTM.
    This can be used for Passive Analysis too.

  18. Ability to change default Admin username

    Currently, the WebAdmin Master-User is fix named as admin. It would be great, if we would have the possibility to change the username. This would be an improvement for brute-force attacks, when the WebGUI is somehow published to the Internet.

    This is being considered. The current intention is to add a superadmin role, making the default admin account just a member of that role.

    This will allow you to create new superadmin accounts, capable of logging into the shell, adding ssh keys, and any other features limited currently to the named admin account.

    Second, you will be able to disable or demote the named admin account.

  19. Improve Backup operation

    At the moment is possible to configure only one method of backup (Local or Email or FTP). I would like to configure 2 ways, such as Local + email, Local + FTP.
    Also no way to only upload configuration inside XG without restore (as it is possible with UTM).
    Once the configuration has been uploaded, I would like to see what has changed from last configuration to current configuration. So the chance to generate a PDF report which lists all differences and details, such as:
    -User A has been added (details)
    -Policy ID has been changed (details)
    - New Traffic…

  20. Handle exceptions more easily

    Today is quite hard to create simple exceptions. For example: Lets say we have a main user policy that uses a Web filtering policy, a QoS policy, a default routing policy and an App filtering policy.

    Now, lets say we have a user inside this policy that should get a specific web site access that is currently blocked in the web filtering policy. Also, another user needs to get more/less bandwithd than everyone else. Also, a user have to get routed through a specific link and not follow the default route balance. Also, another user must have an application allowed.
