Hi
am a bit puzzled with how proxy server works, This is simply set in user's IE setting pointing to Proxy server for internet access (lets say site A is where the proxy server is located)

here is the confusion, remote site B users use the same proxy configured same as the above in IE, they are able to access internet successfully. I am trying to install Sophos Central (.exe file) on machine's in site B which needs  an active internet connection for the installation to complete successfully as its Cloud based and needs to communicate/download over the internet.

The issue is it can't communicate with Sophos Cloud portal and the installation cant continue, the only way I can get it to communicate is by using Netsh - netsh winhttp set proxy proxyservername:portnumber, on the computer and then this allow the installation to complete.

So my question is why doesn't IE proxy setting work for this Sophos installer but the above command does, what's the difference between them and how can I go about installing this on other computers without having to manually type this command on every machine?

Thanks

Dear Experts,
I have an issue lately after upgrading email security appliance. All outbound mails are using my Cisco firewall interface IP and often bounces as my email server public IP is different. Email appliance is Sophos EA.
My email server public IP is 86.xxx.xxx.197
Cisco FW ASA interface public IP 86.xxx.xxx.196
There is n option on sophos to change outbound IP address it takes primary up (internal).
On Cisco I have all SMTP traffic going out via 86.xxx.xxx.197. but still traffic from sophos EA goes out via 196.
What should I do on Cisco ASA to make sophos ( internal IP 192.168.1.88) to use 86.xxx.xxx.197 for all outbound traffic.

Trying to get Sophos Puremessage on Windows SBS 2011.
The Sophos Management Console is on a different server and have already successfully installed the AV client on this server.

When running the setup.exe for Puremessage 314 I get the the following error:

Setup encountered an error while gathering system information.
Error details: COM error-code 0x80041001 : IDispatch error #3585

I enabled the PureMessage logging in the registry as recommended on the Sophos site and the log file shows the same error:

MsiUtils.cpp         pr:3844 th:6396 ln:00392 12:31:18.673 INF   + Entering Function : UTIL::MSI::MsiProcessTextMessage()
MsiUtils.cpp         pr:3844 th:6396 ln:00399 12:31:18.674 ERR     0x01000000: Setup encountered an error while gathering system information.
Error details: COM error-code 0x80041001 : IDispatch error #3585


Would appreciate any ideas on where to look for issues.

I am trying to develop a package installer of Sophos 9.6.2 for Mac OS X - and having a bit of a nightmare doing it!

I've followed the latest updated steps for configuring the installer with the server details using the command line CreateUpdatePreconfig which correctly creates the plist needed.  I'm upsing packages to create the package, and using the pre and postinstall scripts as details in the derflounder article (https://derflounder.wordpress.com/2015/06/17/revisiting-sophos-enterprise-anti-virus-for-mac-9-2-x-deployment/) - all goes well until I try to install the package, at which point it gets to about 30% and fails with an "Install Failed" error.  looking through the install.log file I can see "couldn't posix_spawn: error 8" and it fails.  I've tried changing the patchs to the files, recreating the preconfig scripts to add single quotes and quotes roung the password and username as detailed, but still no joy.

Can anyone offer any advice here - any pointers appreciated!

We have Sophos UTM 9 that is providing dhcp. There are maybe 50 laptops in use.  There are access points through out the two buildings. The two building are connected with hp filber switches. The access points are meraki but there are a couple of older cisco access points.  I keeping getting calls about users not being able to connect to the internet. I find that they are connected to the wireless but the connection has a yellow bang symbol over it.  I release the address, flush the dns, disconnect and reconnect to the wireless but nothing fixes the issue.  The only thing that works in these instances is to set a static ip and dns.  Does anyone have a suggestion on fixing this or an idea of what is causing this?

need to install a sophos firewall. there is a cisco router that the ISP is plugged into and it has quite a bit of config on it. we are wanting to use the firewall primarily for webfiltering traffic. We would like to place it behind the cisco router. not exactly sure how to get web traffic to go through the firewall to be blocked/allowed. The client server runs DHCP and broadcasts the gateway as the internal ip of the router.
