  1. SNMP for APs managed in Sophos Central

    Enable SNMP and post MIB/OID information for all models of AP managed under Sophos Central. SNMP would be very useful in providing information about APs to allow us to better plan deployment, monitor use, and have fewer support calls into Sophos.

    Sophos is the only AP manufacturer that doesn't have SNMP available at the AP.

  2. Sophos Central Wireless WPA2-Enterprise fallback RADIUS-Server

    When you use Sophos Central Wireless and create an SSID with WPA2-Enterprise authentication it is not possible to configure an fallback RADIUS-Server.
    Please allow the configuration of an fallback RADIUS-Server that is used when the primary RADIUS-Server doesn't respond.
    This would allow maintenance and failure of the RADIUS-Server without disabling enterprise WLAN.

  3. Allow azure AD authentication for Wireless

    It would be good if we could utilise the new Azure AD SSO capability to authenticate to access points managed by Sophos Central. This would give enterprise authentication using a cloud based wifi solution.

  5. Improved reporting

    It would be very useful if there was improved reporting on the number/types of wireless clients or at least the ability to export the list to a csv/excel. Also an option to sort all clients by the fields, for example, Connection Speed, IP Address, SSID, etc

  7. Assign seperate vlan for Wifi users

    When WiFi users connect through APs controlled by Sophos central, we cannot assign a separate vlan to them, and lease an IP from our existing DHCP. This is a basic network requirement as users connecting through WiFi should be treated separately and also help in monitoring malicious activities.
    Your helpdesk confirmed me this feature is unavailable, even when this is a very basic feature!
    Here is what they say:

    8601685 - It was nice speaking with you over the phone call today. I would like to inform you that Clients connected on AP will be able to lease IP from

  8. Include MAC address of AP in the Access Points section of Sophos Central

    Include MAC address of AP in the Wireless - Access Points

    it would be really handy if the MAC address for the AP was available in the same section within Sophos Central where we can see the IP address of the AP please.

  9. Configurable language for captive portal

    It should be possible to configure the language of the captive portal. At the moment all the unconfigurable text is in English.

  10. Refresh on Central

    Hello, The Wireless section in Central is great.. but... the refresh is happening to slow. it is not possible to do trouble shooting on this way or to determine if the coverage is optimal (real time would be great... or a refresh button). Sometimes a client even seems still connected when he is already 2 hours out of the building. Greetings and keep up the great work... love your products and the central approach. Steven

  11. Central Wireless - Voucher Konfiguration 1

    Momentan ist es in Sophos Centrall Wireless nur möglich, ein Voucher mit einer Laufzeit von 30 Tagen zu erstellen.

    Eine Möglichkeit, um längere Vouchers (bis zu 365 Tage) zu erstellen, wäre sehr hilfreich und wurde auch vom Kunden mehrfach gefordert.

  12. Central Wireless - Rollenmanagement

    Es wäre schön, wenn man über ein Rollenmanagement bestimmten Usern erlauben könnte, Vouchers zu erstellen.

    Momentan ist dies nur als "Superadmin" und "Admin" möglich.
    Mit diesen Rollen bekommt der Userallerings zu viele Rechte zugewiesen und kann damit zu viel in der Konfiguration von Sophos Central Wireless verändern.

  13. Sophos Central Wireless Captive Portal - Format Terms of Use

    In Sophos Central, Wireless, SSID's, Advanced, Captive Portal, Terms of Service -
    Ability to force the text to a new line or format it (Bold, new Paragraph etc)? By default it displays text on devices trying to access the portal in one mass of text ignoring any new lines/paragraphs you type in Sophos Central interface. This is not a good user experience.

  14. The ability to set automatic reboots of AP's

    It would be good if we can set AP's to reboot out of hours without having to manually log on and reboot. This is possible with Watchguard AP's we currently use.

  15. Expand hotspot voucher usability

    At the moment it is not possible to see what voucher has been used, delete used vouchers, delete a single used voucher. Compared to the voucher options in Sophos UTM the central options are very limited.

    Please investigate possibility to bring SG UTM like vouchers to central

  16. Display AP MAC Address

    It would be helpful to display the MAC address of the access points in Central Wireless somewhere, preferably with the other information about each AP.

  17. Customize wireless alerting

    We would like to see the ability to customize the alerting for access points. By default an high alert (bad health) is generated when 40+ devices connect to an access point. We want to be able to set per customer values for when this alert is send. Values for max. clients, max. CPU or Memory would be appreciated.

  18. Ability to rename Floors at Sites in Wireless section

    The Ability to rename Floors you create at Sites under Wireless would be great.
    E.G. - Outside of the USA, the floor at ground level is the "Ground Floor". "1st Floor" is one floor up, so is causing confusion :)
    Also Basement or Lower Ground would be good examples of why customising is needed.

  19. sophos central wireless - web control

    it'd be nice to have the ability to manage web traffic going through sophos central wireless access points, based off set profiles set within sophos central wireless that can be applied to any of the wireless networks created within central wireless, so that anyone who connects to a specific wireless network can only get to site allowed in that policy within sophos central wireless.

  20. Ability to change Wireless advanced configurations per Site

    It would be good to be able to change and or link SSID's and Wirelessadvanced settings at a site or AP group level in Central. For example, I have a global SSID that is linked to every site, but some sites I need to configure a different VLAN ID's for the global SSID or even remove the VLAN ID for some sites but keep the SSID and backend auth mechanisms global/standard. I have been doing this for years with Ruckus AP's.
