    Better yet, provide a way to schedule a restart from the central console. (The Endpoint agent could accomplish this by injecting a task into Windows' Task Scheduler that ran 'shutdown /r' at the specified time.)

    We are looking at changes to help avoid large numbers of reboot related alerts. This work is not yet planned, so I can’t provide a date, but the proposed implementation would be as below.

    For urgent reboots, e.g. to complete removal of a competitor product being replaced, users will see a notification immediately.

    For non-urgent reboots (i.e. where protection is maintained), users will not see a reboot for the first 2 weeks (typically they will reboot in this time anyway, e.g. for windows updates).

    If not rebooted for 2 weeks they will see a notification they can dismiss.

    The reboot notification be persistent on an endpoint; it will require acknowledgement by the user to clear it. We would expect to have a registry key to be able to prevent this behaviour for systems like shop tills, advertising displays and so on.

    If a further week goes by without a reboot…

    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.

    As a work-around, at least include USB flash drivers in the XG firmware's kernel so we can manually load the needed firmware files onto the system. (I tried in 17.1-MR2 and the system didn't see my USB thumb drive.)

    Even better, make a distinction between applying changes (running config) vs saving them (startup config.) So provide a "Save to NVRAM" button one must click to "permanently" commit changes.

    Currently it's possible to create a FW rule that breaks your remote access as well as that of the CFM and rebooting the device does not fix it because it auto-saves any changes. Then you have to have someone on-site remove the errant rule.

    Provide information on what isn't working and what should be changed to fix it.

    It's not clear what you mean. Perhaps you just need to widen your subnet?

    In some cases it is preferable to set a static DHCP reservation inside the range allocated to dynamic clients.
    Adding this ability would also allow fulfillment of this other feature request: https://ideas.sophos.com/forums/330219-xg-firewall/suggestions/11707182-dhcp-static-assignment-from-list-of-leases

    ...since it's obviously already local and duplicating the files needlessly wastes time and space.

    This is a problem as of SDP 1.2.1 and 1.3.0.
