We have a few customers who have set up access for development machines / services by explicitly specifying our office IP. On its own - not a problem. However some employees work from home and here there's some trouble.
We also have an SSTP VPN and a new SSTP VPN connection on Windows will mark the newly created VPN as the default gateway - so we're not currently stuck because of this (users who need to use the office IP to connect to clients get explicit instructions on how to set that VPN up).
But I wanted to know: can something similar can be set up with Sophos and its SSL VPN?
yes you can config the SSL VPN for the clients as default gateway in the Sophos UTM Firewall. Simple put "Any" in the "Local Networks".

Oooh, awesome! I had no idea this is how it works. Thanks!
just to be said, some users suggested to put alternative "Internet IPv4" in "Local Networks".
That's... actually what I did. ;) It's just that your response made me realize that this setting has broader implications than just a list of "which internal networks users can access" so that was the first thing I tried.
I've seen too many unexpected consequences from using "Any" over the years, even some bugs. I prefer to include "Internet IPv4" along with the local LAN(s) the remote user should access.
