Agreed, the forums (especially theirs) should be part of the feature/problem list for going forward.  It is a wealth of information.  I have been told by them today that a "major" release is slated for May and there will be 1-2 minor releases between now and then.  As this is proprietary, they could not disclose any features but they were pretty confident about the timeline.  If anyone has specific issues (other than Netflix, which I had forwarded to them already) please post your specific issue here and I will see if I can get answers.

Thanks for the update, This all sounds like great news. When you contacted them about Netflix not working on mobile devices what did they say?

for intrusion prevention, the equivalent in UTM9 is the 'attack patterns' tab on the intrusion prevention page. since I am not hosting internet services I orient both toward protecting clients. on XG

Here is what Sophos had to say about this brand new platform- https://blogs.sophos.com/2015/11/10/sophos-xg-firewall-a-network-security-ecosystem-with-many-innovations/#more-30035   You can downloa

Well I was almost there this weekend but had to bail out.  Got everything working very well such as port forwarding, filtering, application policies etc.  Got my home automation, cameras, and streamin

I think in the case of that link, given the error message it may be blocked because the website in question haven't applied the CVE-2015-1793 security vulnerability patch.

 

I suspect in this case, Sophos is actually doing its job properly.

 

Not sure how much of a risk it is, but it does seem to show the merits of Sophos over a bog standard router.

Thanks for the update. Yes its very comforting knowing Sophos has our back :) I personaly have a love/hate relationship for Sophos XG, Just when I think I want to throw in the towel the gateway does something to save me from possible disaster so then I want to keep using it. XG has to get better over time but I am still going to test other options such as Luma when I get it, Even if I don't shutdown Sophos in my own house I will use these 4 Luma's I pre-ordered for my daughter and father in-law if they work as advertised.

And strangely enough, the Microsoft link that I was having trouble with the other day when IPS was on, now works with IPS on. The other day I had to switch it off to access it.

 

Baffled over that one!

That is a bit strange. You will have trouble with somethings, I don't know if your running Windows 10 but I can tell you that the Windows 10 'media creation tool' will fail if you don't turn off HTTP scanning for the computer your trying to use with it. I also have a problem with trying to update my Epson printer software if I don't turn off HTTP scanning. So there are rocky roads ahead for you but as long as you know the workaround for now you will get threw it. Another thing you will have trouble with downloading 'Insider Builds' of Windows 10 if you belong to that program, Again just disable HTTP scanning when trying to download and you will be fine.

I tweeted opnsense about Sophos blocking their website, and they have patched it and it works now.

 

Soooo... Sophos is doing its job there :-)

Glad to hear it. Did you apologize to your Sophos box?

Isn't Luma just a consumer wifi mesh like Eero? Inferior to Open-Mesh?
