The Sophos Community will be unavailable from 13:00 to 18:00 UTC this Saturday, October 1st for upgrades. Stay tuned to our Twitter account @SophosSupport for updates.
This article explains how to setup your Sophos UTM so you can create a bridged interface and then configure Web Filtering and Application Control.
Applies to the following Sophos product(s) and version(s) Sophos UTM 9.2
Note: the steps to create a bridge interface in this article only apply to UTM 9.2 and prior versions. In UTM 9.3, the process to create bridge interfaces has changed. Please see KB 121532 for instructions on creating bridge interfaces in UTM 9.3, or KB 121560 for general information on other changes in 9.3.
Now this is complete we are able to connect the UTM device to the network (one cable to the firewall, one to the switch). Computers on the attached switch should now be able to connect out to the Internet via the bridged UTM (e.g., try browsing to google.com). If you experience any issues open the firewall live log to ensure traffic is allowed through.
