  1. 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.

    • 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?

        • 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.

          • 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.

              • HTTPS Inspection Policy using external trusted CA

                Support external trusted certificate authority certificate upload for the HTTPS inspection policy. This would enable most browsers to connect automatically without having to deploy using GPO's a self generated certificate onto each machines trusted root certificates which is not always possible automatically.

                  • 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.

                    • Copy a category / category group

                      Isn't it good to be able to clone a category group ? this way you can make a copy modify and apply to a policy as a test. If it goes wrong at least you have the original to go back to.

                        It can be confusing as to which backup you are working with if you have made multiple Archives on the same day.

                        • I'd like to create separate groups in the policies section

                          We part manage these with our clients and some have mentioned how it can be intimidating when you have a lot of rules.

                          I'd pretty much just create a 'General Policies' group that has the exceptions, updates and custom allowed / blocked in it.

                                So wouldn't it be nice if you could say what this page can and can't do and how it related to other areas of the guardian web filter and an example of how this page can be used and / or a link to one fo the videos for it's use if you have one ?

                                  • Group membership - controlling access to BYOD 802.1x Per SSID

                                    Could we have more granular control over which SSIDs users can connect to instead of the blanket control currently introduced for 802.1x.

                                    This could be extended to SSL Login page for guest networks to advise non permitted users to use network XXXX instead.

                                      • The graph could be bigger

                                        The traffic graph doesn't fit the table. It's bit small.

                                          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.
