  1. Objects

    Give us objects like in the UTM, Why do i have to set a static ip in the dhcp, add a dns record in the dns server and create a ip host object for firewall rules, when i could do it all with one object in the UTM.. This was for me a really really perfect feature and it makes it all a lot easier to administrate since you don't have to do the same over and over again for different parts of the configuration.

    • SSTP VPN - Native Support

      Microsoft PPTP VPN is using a weak algorithm (MS-CHAP v2 which can be cracked) so you should upgrade to SSTP vpn protocol available from Windows Vista. You could allow users to download certificate from user portal and no more actions are required on client side. Think about whem you need to manage 100 users and you need to manage them, such as udating their client or when they move from once PC to another. In this way, is the client OS that manage the entire overhead and from XG side is another add-on from TMG's competitor.

            • 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! :)

              • 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.

                • 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

                    • 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.

                      • 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)

                          • 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.

                              • 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.

                                  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"

                                  • 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.

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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).
