    Ability to notify any pending updates by email to individual or group email address. This would use the same smtp credentials as the report notifications section, outgoing settings.

    • Roadwarriors Security

      On the Network -> VPN -> SSL roadwarriors page new groups are enabled by default. I feel all groups should be disabled unless specifically enabled. Thanks.

      • Blocked pages feature request

        It would be really useful the 'Blocked' pages URL included the full URL...at present, they are truncated.

        Thanks

          • Searching by IP

            The realtime web filter report needs to be able to differentiate between and IP such as 10.41.145.7 and 10.41.145.71 (72, 73, 74 etc).

                • IPS - autoblock probe IPs

                  It would be useful if Smoothwall had a way of automatically blocking IP addresses of malicious/probe packets dropped by IPS.
                  Thanks.

                  • SNMP Location String

                    It would be nice if you could allow updating/populating an location string for SNMP polling. Larger organizations like ours support and maintain content filters in multiple locations and also monitor those devices using network monitoring software. The ability to set an SNMP location string allows us to group by location in or monitoring platforms and better respond to site issues.

                    • web filter real time - allow & denied category

                      many times i just want to watch a real time web filter of a specific IP address and i want to filter only denied request or only allowed requests. currently i can filter only allowed requests partially if i use httpcode 200 but if i want to find blocked requests then i cant just click one box which shows all block codes such as 407 etc. it would be nice to have a filter option to choose show only blocked url requests. so i can see if something is being blocked or not without having to see hundreds of allow…

                        • Option to select which nodes send a Safeguarding notification

                          We have several child nodes which send their reporting data to the Parent
                          node which handles reporting. This means that when I schedule Safeguarding notifications I get a full detail report from the parent along with empty reports from each of the child nodes.

                          • Safeguarding Notifications exclude nodes

                            We have a parent node and several child nodes. The parent node doesn't proxy (child nodes handle client proxying) and we report from the parent node. Problem is that if I schedule a weekly safeguarding notification report I get one report from the parent with the report detail and also an empty report from each of the child nodes. I'd like to be able to exclude child nodes from sending out the notifications so that I don't send out empty reports to School Safeguarding officers

                              Our most common report requests are to run a monthly report on an AD group showing the Top 100 users by total time spent and a summary for each user showing their Top 10 URLs accessed. This could be made into a simple template for AD Group membership reporting with options to allow us to choose browse time and/or bandwidth

                              • Schedule reports for specific date ranges

                                Investigation reports take ages to run and to get round this we would usually schedule an investigation report but you don't appear to be able to set a date range for the reporting data. You can only set a date for the schedule. e.g. I would schedule a user investigation report to run tonight to report on activity generated last month

                                  It would be nice to see a Destination IP column alongside the URL column in the Realtime Web Filter report. It would save having to carry out manual DNS lookups.

                                    We have added additional IPs to some interfaces (used when migrating from old proxy solution to Smoothwall). I'm trying to report on who is hitting those IPs to determine which clients are miss configured with the old proxy IPs but it just doesn't seem possible.

                                    • Make the Traffic Graphs page configurable and more concise

                                      The latest iteration of the Traffic Graphs page is worse than ever. The scrolling list of interfaces is not orderable and you cannot see all the interfaces with the current bandwidth on one page without scrolling.

                                      We need to be able to choose which interfaces are monitored - and in which order - and place all of the resizable graphs in any order and size them so that they will all fit on one screen for monitoring purposes. Alternatively, this all needs to be available through a web-api so that custom web pages could be built to show the important…

                                      • Radar Lite - Show if request was blocked

                                        Just started using RADAR Lite. Is there a way for you to show if the logged request was blocked or allowed? This would save a load of work trolling through the Smoothwall Logs.

                                        • Have a note field against the ip or hostname

                                          Have a note field against the ip or hostname in locations as I have a large bypass list for devices that needs less filtering so a note field would let me keep track of what each device was
