  1. Allow to add computers with FQDN

    This limitation is existing in the version before as well, however I recommend to allow adding new computers (Dashboard - Entire Network - Add more computers - Add computers manually) with the full FQDN, because especially in multi domain environments it's essential to use the fqdn instead of the netbios name. The limitation I think is coming that we only allow to add the Netbios name (15 characters).

  3. Remote Command Console should be powershell supportive

    Please add Support for powershell in Remote Command Console.

    As we have some scripts which we need to run on remote machines without logging or disturbing users.

  4. Change relay depending on IP address

    It would be nice to be able to setup the relays for LanGuard per Subnet so laptop users would always connect to the local Relay instead of going to the setup on the dashboard. This would then cut down on network traffic when these laptops are located in different subnets across the WAN.

  5. Report-Open Share report

    1. Currently Open Share report can display all share folders. The only filter is share name. I suggest add a filter to filter default share. This can let us know what users really shares.

    2. Open share report list share folders of each computer one by one. We want a total number each computer shares and the best display a distribute chart.

  6. Granular Scanning Options

    > Scanning Profile "Select All" Checkbox, or Custom Scan Option?

    I would like to see a custom scan option on the scan tab to allow for more granular scanning, e.g. scanning for a particular patch, or vulnerability.

    The new scanning profile creation could also use a "select all / un-select all" box to allow easier selections of patches / vulnerabilities to address this issue. It seems that the only way to accomplish this currently is to manually uncheck every option that isn't needed in the new profile.

    I am a fairly new user of LanGuard, but it seems that there…

  7. Scanning profile editor takes long time to load

    I know that this behaviour was already in former versions. But maybe we have some chance to increase the overall performance for the scanning profile editor.

  8. script to delete old computers

    It would be nice to have a script that allow administrator to delete a lot of computers at once, instead of having to right-click and delete from dashboard or select computers from the database maintenance

  9. LanGuard HP UNIX support

    It would be a nice feature if the LanGuard supports the HP UNIX machines. In the financial sector a lot of companies use HP UNIX machines in the network.
    Also extending the remediation (Patch management, etc) to UNIX machines would be a good idea.

    Thanks in advance

  10. Change default path for agent

    It would be interesting to be able to change default path for agent installation when you deploy from the server.

  11. Set a "Timeframe" option under "Vulnerability Assessment options

    In our environment, we have a 2 week window of testing patches. This forces us to go through and deselect any patches that we know are in this timeframe when deploying patches to systems. If we were able to create a scanning profile that allowed us to detect all patches outside of a current date (the current options are Last Month, Last Year, and Older Than one Year) it would be much easier for us to just scan our entire network with this scan, and scan our test systems for all missing patches. This would keep us from having to…

  12. Agent "Pull" model with less dependency on active connection to Server

    The current Server-Agent model is largely a "Push" architecture rather than a "Pull" architecture - i.e. the scan/remediation jobs are entirely triggered/handled by the LanGuard server or relay agent.

    Unfortunately, this almost defeats the point of an agent-based approach, since there are a lot of real-time operations required between agent and server.

    I would like to see a future version of LanGuard evolve to a point where the agent is much more autonomous and that operates more on a "Pull" model:
    1) Policy is defined on the server
    a) Server pushes policy update out to any reachable Agent
    b) On…

  14. List remediation date/time and succesful/fail computers

    A general requirement,

    We want to list remediation date/time and succesful/failed computers.
    Currently there is no such report!

    It's important to let IT knows how to find a list to show which computers install patch failed.

  15. Schedule deployment of Languard Agents.

    At the moment there is one option for deploying agents. Deploy. I would like to see a scheduler. The ability to schedule the push out of agents during non business hours. Also it would be nice to see a thread adjustment so it doesn't try to push them out 10 at a time, a sliding scale or at least a few options as to how many it can push out at the same time like it does with remediation.

  16. Refresh Needed in Remediation

    Manual or automatic refresh is badly needed in the Remediation jobs Details window. It is very frustrating having to toggle between computers in order to view the job changes.

  17. Terminal Server Patching - Install Mode

    It would be great if GFI LanGuard had advanced options to put a Windows Terminal Server in "Install Mode" (change user /install), apply my patches, and then put the Terminal Server back in "Execute Mode" (change user /execute).

    I have a Terminal Server and need to deploy both Windows and Office patches. (May only be necessary for the Office patches). This would be handy.

    Thanks.

  18. Ability to audit changes made to the Languard Configuration

    This gives the ability to generate a report detailing the changes made for auditors to verify scan rules are not switched off.

  19. Windows Server 2012 Datacenter Core Mode Agent

    Enable LanGuard agent functionality in Windows Server 2012 Core Mode (Datacenter Licensing Model). Windows Server 2012 GUI Mode (with Datacenter Licensing) works out of the box so I'd like to see this core mode functionality added. With core becomming a more prominent use with things like Domain Controllers, etc. this would be very nice.
