  1. Report traffic by firewall rule ID

    We need the traffic SYSTEM GRAPH based on RULE ID, because based on rule id (policy) we can easy to identify where the bandwidth consumes easily,
    because we purchased this firewall before two months. in old firewall we had that option, so please add this feature

  4. Transparent mode for layer 3 routing

    Say you have a Datacenter with a VPN router that you plug it into a interface, give it the private ip adress because the router is configured to forward all traffic to the xg, you set interface to be transparent to your gateway and select option layer 3 subnet so you don't have to do any policy routing. The xg will know to do it automatically...

  5. Admin login notification in email

    when some one login with admin account then only log is created. it should be some email alert mechanism. if someone try to guess admin password from LAN or WAN then real administration should get an alert that someone is trying to access applciance with IP address. Bcoz this is a firewall so all alerts should be there

  6. Allow changes to syslog format for easier reporting in 3rd party logging tools

    The "syslog" format is not very sysloggy.for example some fields are quoted, some are not, blank values are included but not quoted making it unnecessarily difficult to parse. permitted. Be nice to be able to specify custom formats to avoid messing about with, for example, logstash filters.

  10. DNS support for SRV Records

    Add support for SRV records in XG's DNS service according RFC 2782. This would enhance XG's ability to operate in Windows environments; i.e., support Active Directory.

  11. Firewall rule filters should be persistent

    If you filter firewall rules, then edit a rule, the filtering is lost and you have to re-apply the filter. This is a nightmare when you need to update 10 different firewall rules. Filtering should be maintained until it is cleared.

  12. Google Apps based User Authentication via SAML

    Hello, we currently use Google Apps for user management. For many apps, we use SAML to talk to Google Apps for user authentication.

    In small environments where Active Directory is not in place, it would be great to have SAML/SSO via Google.

  13. Consolidate Setup Wizards in single menu

    As it stands there are two Setup Wizards in XG that I've used. One is the initial setup under Admin (top right corner) > Wizard and the other is for VPN under VPN > IPSec > Wizard.

    If possible it would be good to have these consolidated into a single Setup Wizard menu located under the Admin dropdown in the right corner. This way as more setup wizards are added like for Firewall rules, SSLVPN, or other task they can all be accessed via one central location.

  14. Better routing by default with site-to-site VPN tunnels

    When an XG firewall is connected to another firewall via VPN, the XG firewall cannot route traffic to the remote protected network by default. Instead, you have to set up a special route and SNAT using the console in order for it to work and you are apparently required to specify hosts rather than whole networks when setting up the route (see https://community.sophos.com/kb/en-us/123334).

    The UTM9 firewall can route traffic through the VPN tunnel by default. I can't believe this problem is a "feature" in XG. Adding extra steps to make something work less well than something that just automatically…

  15. Add hostname in email notifications

    When receiving notifications for multiple XG appliances there is no clue in the mail about which appliance it is coming from ...
    Is it possible to just add the appliance hostname in subject, just lige UTM SG do ...
    Actually the only way is to set a per-device (not really existing) sender email address and that is not a good practice nor very convenient

  16. Create group with LDAP custom attribute

    UTM 9 is easier to create a group based on LDAP attribute. In XG via Configure> Authentication> Group> Add Members we did not find it

  17. Sending only 1 quarantine report to user

    Currently the quarantine digest sends a report to very e-mail adres that is configured as a user.

    When user1 had 1 email address it gets 1 report
    When user2 has 3 email addresses it gets 3 quarantine reports these other two are duplicates, so only need to be send once.

  19. POP3/IMAP-Increase email scan limit

    Please increase POP3/IMAP email scan size limit from 10 MB to at least 50 MB as for SMTP. It is not acceptable to have security only until 10 MB. Denying is also no option, if you want to keep your business communication going.
