  1. Office 365

    Please configure smoothwall to be able to connect and send email through office 365. This means you need to enable the security email features such as TLS. This is on every other piece of software we own, why not smoothwall?

      • Non-SSL login page

        Allow users to authenticate via a page that does not use HTTPS, and therefore does not require a certificate to be rolled out. For BYOD devices (where a cert can't be easily rolled out) users would no longer be warned about accepting an untrusted certificate.

        • Reports should include the time period the report is for and any speciffic options selected

          Please add option for reports to display a title containing the time period and what the report is for? For example, I have a report that displays the activity of a specific user over a period of time, but the report does not display what user or what period of time the report is for. If you have to run many reports for different users for different periods of time it makes it extremely difficult to tell which report refers to what user. This is also the case when exporting reports to a file (.pdf, .csv, etc.). I have tried…

          • Active Directory authentication should use the Global Catalog

            I have 5 sub-domains in my forest. Only accounts at the forest root can log in without having to type in their domain.

            If the Smoothie were able to make it's LDAP queries to the Global Catalog, no one, in any domain, would have to type in their domain information.

            Every product I have, that uses Active Directory for authentication, has the capability to use the Global Catalog. I can't figure out why SmoothWall does not.

            • Bandwidth Module to monitor LAN

              I would like the bandwidth module to have the option to monitor LAN, here is the scenario, we have multiple subnets the run through the Smoothwall and rather than traffic shaping everyone that runs through the LAN I would like to be able to apply set limits to individual networks. This would be excellent in a corporate network or those company's running cloud networks.

              • Notes! Notes! and MORE NOTES!

                On all pages, but especially on those pages where you enter in things like IP addresses for exceptions, a note field is suggested. That way I can enter in what that IP address actually is and won't question the entry later.

                • Change the colour of the font

                  On the SSL login page I have uploaded a picture as a background. It is now difficult to read the text on this page. It would be better if I could make this text white. Please add this option.

                    I would think you could use the down/up buttons but I haven't figured out how to make them work.

                      • A more colourful GUI with better icons

                        A more colourful GUI with better icons. It would be nicer to have a more colourful GUI than the monochrome blue. Perhaps a new layout too.

                        • Uncategorised sites need to be blocked

                          We need a way of uncategorised sites being blocked immediately until either we unblock them or they are placed in category, this is an urgent issue because sites are being allowed through that shouldn't be, because they haven't been categorised.

                          • Better user feedback on the SSL Login page when a user has reached their max allowed login limit

                            Currently, when a user has reached their max login limit, when trying to log in on the SSL Login page, it just cycles the login page without giving any user feedback in the way of telling the user they have reached the limit.

                            The SSL Login page should at least give feedback that a user has logged in X number of times and have reached their limit.

                            Also, a list of current logged in devices could be shown to the user and give them a logout button so they can log out the other logins so they are then able…

                                      • I should be able to filter by blocked only content

                                        There is no way to simply list the realtime web filter hits by block or allow. Would be immensely helpful if I could only see one or the other or both.

                                        • Quick block or allow

                                          nice to have a list of all allows and blocks to be able to scroll through on this page. With a comment as to why it was allowed or blocked
