  1. Allow LanGuard agents on public servers to report back using a NAT address which is specific to the LanGuard server.

    We currently have a LanGuard server on a private IP but the agents deployed to a handful of public servers are unable to communicate back to this server. The agents are configured to use the private IP which they are unable to communicate with. I have a NAT in place to use but the current server agent configuration is not capable of using this. We would prefer to have the agents report in versus going agentless and needing to regularly scan these systems. This is also causing issues with the public servers reporting patching status during deployments.

  2. Relay Agent high availability...

    it will be great if you can have two relay agent grouped into one pool and the client machines pointed to the pool this will help in sites where the relay agent server can be off for extend times, one server will cover the other.

  4. allow linux scanning with non root accounts

    Languard needs to have an option to connect to and scan linux machines with another account besides root. Most people do not allow root access to linux servers via SSH. That way we can have a dedicated account that will be used for scanning and patching linux servers without giving root access to the entire server.

  5. Allow Languard management console to be installed on workstation.

    Allow management console for Languard to be installed on client or workstation so that Languard can be managed from any computer and not just one machine.

    The best way to do this would be to setup via a web interface or just allow the management console to install on workstation and point to central server for database and central config.

  6. LanGuard support for patching Amazon Linux

    Please would you add the capability for LanGuard to able to scan and patch the Amazon Linux OS.

    This feature would be useful for companies moving their workloads to the AWS platform.

  7. Option to manually approve the automatic distribution of a major version

    Currently, if you've got the "disable automatic approval for major version upgrades" option turned on, the only way to then get a major version installed/rolled out, is to manually select it for one or more systems and trigger a remediation.

    I would be great, if those major versions would pop up in the "Manual Approval" list and could be declined or approved there.

  8. Configurable interval between instance and central management

    It's not fully transparent when the instance will push the information/results/settings to the central management server. It seems only if new scan results are available -> settings, last sync date, results will be pushed to the management server.

    A configurable interval or something like a heartbeat would be great, because if customer look at their instance (especially on evaluation) and see that 20 - 30 minutes nothing was sync, while they have done some changes e.g. on the location/GPS coordinates, it looks as the connection between the instance and the central management server is not working.

    A heartbeat, would give…

  9. 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.

  11. off-line computers not showing out of date

    Have the icons change to red if a tracked host has not communicated with the Languard server. As it is now if a host goes off line you have to check each host to see if it has not responded whereas if they were marked red after missing x number of scans you could tell quickly there was a problem.

  12. Major release JAVA and Adobe Reader no more...

    I understand the reasoning for no more major release update for JAVA however maybe GFI can program it as an option in LanGuard.
    In the configuration somewhere (check box type option) allow for those of us who would like to continue to have it update through major versions. Because, to us this is now going to cause us more work in GFI now updating via custom software for JAVA.

    Thank you

  13. Staggered scanning times for agent based scanning

    With languard 2011 add a way to automatically stagger scan/reporting times for agents so that you don't have hundreds or thousands of agents reporting at the same time.

  14. Resumable patch deployment

    It would be a great advantage to have resumable deployments. Specifically critical when deploying patches or custom deployments to Mobile devices such as laptops and Windows based tablets. These are notorious for dropping connectivity. Being able to resume a deployment from last point would save a lot of time and bandwidth.

  15. Custimizable Reports

    Sometime I'm only interested in seeing the processor, Memory, Disk, User, Computer, etc. Maybe the scan results could be exported to Excel or Access and I could write my own report.

  16. Chain Multiple Updates

    I would like to suggest that LanGuard be able to detect where there are new versions of applications available or chains of dependent updates and be able to jump to the latst comprehensive update or version (in the case of free software in particular) or chain the updates together so that a single cycle (or at least a few cycles) of remediation will bring a system completely up to date.

    We have been using LanGuard for several months now and still have systems that are catching up on their updates. I see how the current functionality is quite sufficient for…

  17. Relay Agent/Server to Install Local Agents

    To reduce Traffic/Bandwidth Consumption on slow networks. Instead of LanGuard Agents being installed from the main LanGuard Server consuming WAN Bandwidth.Allow installed Relay Agents to locally install\push normal LanGuard Agents to computers using it as a relay server since they are typically on the same LAN anyways.

  18. Computer tree group by subnet

    Right now computer tree can group by domain/OU, Network Role, relay distribution and custom attributes.
    I want to add a feature request to group by network subnet.
    Normally network subnet is equal to department or something else. This feature will decress attribute configuration time.

  20. Disable updating of specific product

    Some of our servers use a program called PDFcreator 1.2.3
    The systems that interact with PDFcreator do not support the newer versions of this program.
    It would be nice to be able to ignore any patches/updates for specific programs (perhaps per client).
    Right now, we can ignore a specific update, but when a new patch is released we have to ignore the new update. Please make it possible to simply ignore a given product.
    Thank you.
