  1. 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

  2. wireless channel selection

    On the new APX WAPs there is a problem with Dynamic (Demonic?) Background Channel selection where is goes haywire.
    Ideally we would like the option to limit background channel selection to certain times of day. (Like we can with updates to firmware.)

  3. Allow a negative schedule

    If I can have a schedule that say´s eg.: "No wireless availability between 16:00 and 02:00", or have 2 schedules "Availability between 00:00 and 02:00 and 16:00 and 24:00", business hours of eg. catering industries could be followed. Also, please allow for different schedules during weekends.

  4. Voucher Anpassung

    Aktuell ist es nicht möglich in Sophos Central den Voucher in einer anderen Sprache als englisch zu erstellen.
    Schön wäre hier eine Anpassung an die Konfigurationssprache oder das man einen eigenen Voucher-Entwurf hochladen kann, der dann auch z.B. ein Firmenlogo oder ähnliches ermöglicht

  7. 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

  8. 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

  9. Central Wireless - Voucher Konfiguration 2

    Momentan kann keine Begrenzung der Datenmenge/Surfgeschwindigkeit für die einzelnen Vouchers erstellt werden.

    In größeren WLAN Umgebungen wäre es sinvoll, wenn die Surfrate und Downloadmenge begrenzt werden kann.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Web filter for guest networks

    The possibility to define web filters for guest networks would be great. So the whole access to the internet for those guest networks would be defined in Sophos Central Wireless .

  15. Possibility to define bandwidth per device per SSID

    In guest networks (SSIDs) I would like to cap the maximum bandwidth per device. For example, every device in the guest network has an maximum bandwidth of 10 Mbit/s.

  17. 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.

  18. comments

    There is a comments field at the SSID page, but i can't fill the comments field.

    We have multiple SSID's but two SSID's with the same name but different configurations (Vlan tagging).
    The comments field would be handy to use, to fill in the configuration(Vlan Tagging).
    This way we don't need to edit the SSID to see what the Vlan tagging is on which SSID.
