  1. User bans not case sensitive.

    Allow usernames to be typed in any way on the user bans page. At the moment they need to be entered exactly as they appear in authentication however as names are unique anyway they shouldn't need to be case-sensitive.

    This will be easier for when adding portal users with rights to ban as it will be difficult enough asking them to remember domain\name, at the moment it needs to be DOMAIN\name.

    Or perhaps also allow for names to be entered without DOMAIN\.

    • 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.

          • 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.

            • Schedule - Report Generation - File Transfer Bandwidth Details break down into Application Types such Dropbox, Software Update. etc.

              It is to run a report periodically to show "File Transfer", breaking down in the application types such as FTP, P2P, Dropbox, Microsoft Update, etc. So, based on this report, we may define Bandwidth Shaping according to the application type.

              • guest wireless login management

                My feature request would be for Guest login management on the smoothwall. I could then create user accounts for the administrative assistants, who could log in and grant a guest (or parent) access to the Wifi for a templated amount of time. It could be done with the user/password combination of the SSL login page, but having a new Guest Login page with just a "code" needed would make it easier for folks. Also having the ability to mark the user in a special group (ie: presenters coming on campus needing access to specific resources by way of Zone Groups....…

                • Option to display just blocked hits on realtime web filter logs

                  Add an option to display just the blocked hits on the realtime web filter logs page. Typing in "Denied" returns nothing and putting status as 0 returns all 200. Search should be able to be sorted by exact and wildcard or have a separate option for blocked only.

                      • 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.

                                        • Fix for block page send unblock request

                                          We have recently discovered that on the block page when you do send unblock request it sends the replyto header as the name that has been entered rather than the email address entered. We have changed this but think it should be done officially in a future update, quick fix :)

                                          Inside /modules/guardian3/httpd/global-cgi-bin/unblock_request.cgi

                                          Change:
                                          'Reply-To' => $requestusername,

                                          To:
                                          'Reply-To' => $requestuseremail,
