  1. uefi boot

    Hi,

    Is it possible to have the Smoothwall boot with UEFI? Both ISO/CD/DVD and grub? It should be not that big issue I guess. More info for boot debian by uefi: https://wiki.debian.org/UEFI

    • Google Auth in RADIUS via PAM

      We would like to use Google Authentication in SW RADIUS.
      At the moment we have our Google domain synced as DIrectory but there is no PAM module configured in RADIUS to fetch auth credentials.
      This is a one stop shop solution to use SW without AD and separate RADIUS servers.
      The solution is available via 3rd parties like Jumpcloud and Cloudessa but we do want to cut out the middle man.
      So how this will work:
      SW is RADIUS and has Google directory synced, it fetches the authentication via the PAM module and forwards users to Guardian etc.

      • Safeguarding report user access level

        We need an option to only allow a group to report on a specific group.
        For example, Staff should only be able to report on students, not each other and Admins.
        This is true for both the new Safeguarding section, and the traditional reports. The alert email also contains information above the level of the group receiving the email.

        • Improve BYOD Roaming by Using Fast Reconnect Equivalent

          Improve BYOD Roaming by Using Fast Reconnect Equivalent
          Use the Linux equivalent by enabling TLS caching "use_tunneled_reply" so that roaming works seamlessly from one AP to the next, which it does not do reliably at the moment.

          • Safeguarding portal report to external file

            It would be very useful if users (usualing safeguarding officer in school) of safeguarding portal could save given reports to external file, like csv. This would allow them to filter data much easier.

            • Safeguarding reports filtered by group

              Please give the option for safeguarding notifications to be generated based on the local (smoothwall) group the users below to. Currently there is only the option to receive daily emails based on username or "everyone". Thanks.

                The notifications can be set up for groups as of our Inverness release, and the option to filter the report in the portal and administrative UI is coming in Kenilworth

              • Group Mapping to AD OUs

                Mapping users to Smoothwall groups from Organisational Units in Active Directory would be more useful than the current: by AD security group.

                • Anti-Malware Reporting and Logging

                  Reports > Realtime/Logs > System > Anti-Malware Engine shows the Anti-Malware Engine is running and updating, but there is no evidence that it's actually scanning downloads. What I expect to see is some log of the files that were scanned. That way I could correlate that it's actually doing it's job. As a serendipitous benefit, this would also allow me to see what files my users are downloading (something we've always been interested to find out.)

                  • Web Filter violation alert

                    I would like to see an automated alert that would send an email whenever a user accesses various web categories. We are wanting to see whenever a user tries to access certain inappropriate categories so that school administrators can act instantly.

                      Hi Wayne

                      We currently have a Safeguarding section that reports on certain rulesets – this also gives you the ability to set up notifications and as of the Inverness release due out soon, you can also receive instant alerts on danger level breaches.

                      Is this what you were looking for?
                    • Filter box for Tenant on Category Group and Categories page

                      Having tenants drastically increases the number of entries on both the Category Group and Categories pages. Some kind of filter would be very useful to only display a set of relevant categories/groups, rather than having to scroll through the now huge list. In our case, its 1000 entries.

                      • would be good to see top 20 or 30 bandwidth users

                        would be good if we could see who is using all bandwidth, maybe what type of user is logged on

                          • Configuration Change Log

                            Would it be possible to have some form of configuration change log. This would be useful for new users and those wanting to do "idiot checks" as well as monitoring changes by other staff members.

                                    • Sub release information shown in central management

                                      Show the sub release version under installed release for local and child nodes. i.e. rather than just showing Glamis, Inverness show Glamis-3 inverness-0 Inverness-1 etc. etc.

                                      • Forward HTTPS error page to MITM download page

                                        I'm just thinking if a user hasn't installed the cert on any of our guest networks, the HTTPS error page could automatically forward to the user to the download page where they can install the cert?

                                        If we have multiple subnets and the smoothie is a the default gateway for each subnet, there would have to be an option to set the address of this page.

                                        • Categories - See whats in the standard Categories

                                          It would be great if smoothwall could populate/show the Standard Categories lists with data. At the moment everything is blank. Would this be possible to do. Maybe have an option to show / hide this as i can imagine smoothwall wouldn't want users to delete data from these Standard Categories.

                                          By showing data in these categories, it would give us a better understanding of the type of sites that are blocked and would be helpful to pass a few sites on to users to access rather than having to test them. An example is MUSIC. A teacher asked for music…
