  1. Option to schedule release summary quarantine emails - once or twice a day at a configurable time

    please add an option to release summary quarantine emails on a schedule per day/time.
    Rather then the current scenario whereby you have an option to forward a notification of each quarantined email as they come in - which is pointless as this will potentially result in hundreds of notifications per user per day - all I want Smoothwall to forward is a summary of their quarantined emails once or twice a day in accordance with configurable times, with a link which allows users to view/release the quarantined email.

        • Smoothwall to Auto Reboot after Kernel Panics

          Smoothwall could be set to auto reboot after kernel panics. Possibly log them somewhere if possible and then, reboot after an X amount of time.

                • HTTPS certifate Warning

                  We have a continuing problem with this, especially with our Chromebooks.
                  certain links like Youtube Edu give a broken page, Only when broken pictures are clicked will this acceptance warning popup.

                  Please can we have an option to disable this whole Warning acceptance msg completely.

                  We are a school and it is not needed, it creates problems and people often dont understand what it is anyway, they think its a Virus or Hacking attack of some sort.

                  changing the tiner to Custom 365 days via console (Support) has not helped unfortunately.

                  • scheduled report Save button

                    you get the option to edit a schedule but not to save it. You can only add or remove it. Can we have a save button too?

                    • spelling correction

                      "Dowload updates management" needs a 'n'.

                      That's all :)

                        • To be able to run an IP address analysis on a subnet rather than a single IP

                          It would be useful to run a full report on an IP subnet (rather than just a single IP), I'm told that this is not possible at the moment. This would be really useful as we look after schools each with their own subnet.

                          • Add UPnP

                            Add UPnP feature to the UTM. I install the UTM in hospitality environments where users bring devices that require UPnP for full functionality. An example is when multiple XBOX 360s are NAT'd to a single public IP address. There is no way to have all of the consoles test "Open NAT" without UPnP. This means that certain features such as voice chat and matchmaking don't always work. Thanks.

                            • Hardware Failover and UPS

                              When in hardware failover there is no way to configure the failover unit to be connected to a network based UPS. Need the ability to set up a network interface on the failover unit that is excluded from going down and has independent IP addressing so that it can communicate with network based UPS and be told to shutdown cleanly in a power outage situation.

                              • Separate security/bugfix from feature updates (remove dependency)

                                Patch 69 (for example) has held up the release of subsequent security and bugfixes.

                                I'd prefer it if bugfixes and security patches were streamed separately to feature updates.

                                Say I'm on version $foo, with feature update patch $bar. My SW box would pull security and bugfixes appropriate to $foo.$bar.

                                From a development POV, fixes to known issues could be rolled out faster, but you'd have to re-organise your patch and testing methodology.

                                From a customer POV, I'm not waiting on a security patch because a shiny new thing in a feature patch goes a bit bonkers in certain circumstances.

                                    • Support Negotiate authentication fully to allow Kerberos AND NTLM to be configured on a single port

                                      We have recently switched over to Kerberos authentication to resolve some issues with Office 2013 and certain other applications that don't support NTLM.

                                      However we have since discovered that there are some pieces of software that do not support Kerberos authentication, and have to use NTLM, such as:
                                      • Java (as documented https://na13.salesforce.com/articles/Default/WEB-PROXY-Configuring-Java-to-use-a-different-proxy-than-the-system-settings-proxy-1376907476999)
                                      • Office 365 when using Outlook 2007 (connection to autodiscover.outlook.com and office365.outlook.com fails when using Kerberos, requires authentication exception)
                                      • Microsoft Lync 2013 (unable to connect to service when using Kerberos)
                                      • SchoolComms installer / updater (unable to download updates when using Kerberos)
                                      We have to…

                                      • user ajustable Dead pier detection for in bound ipsec VPNs.

                                        Could the option be added so the time for detecting a dead pier be make adjustable for inbound VPNs.

                                        • set HTTPS interception warning according to policy

                                          We have the option to display the HTTPS interception warning Daily or Weekly but that applies to everyone. We have two schools sharing one internet connection and one Smoothwall device. One wants a weekly warning, the other daily. If this was applied to policies I could do it. I can't see how to set it differently for different users.
