  1. Blocked pages feature request

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

    Thanks

    • Show IP address / mac address and DNS name of station / location and record all of them in the log.

      If you only record the ip address, in a DHCP environment it's difficult track back and check where and /or what machine was used to browse a certain URL or violate policy.

      Please ensure that the smoothwall logs contain the DNS name / mac address picked up in realtime when the log is recorded.

      Thanks .

        • Bandwidth Monitoring

          Give option to show bandwidth in mbps/s rather than kbps/s and make columns right justified making figures easier to read.

          • 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.

            • Allow a reboot to be scheduled on a regular basis

              Allow the users to schedule a reboot when they want as far in the future as they want.

              • Ability to notify any pending updates by email

                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.

                • Compatibility with android apps

                  At the moment RADAR works for MAC, Windows and chromebook. However chromebooks are now capable of using android apps, as a result android apps in chromebook is not monitored by RADAR. It will be great if we have RADAR for android as well.

                  • Standard Categories

                    It would be great if under Categories, the "Standard Categories" are expanded by default and if they continue to be at the bottom of the list. It would make it a lot easier to add custom content to each via find, which I would imagine that Smoothwall would review and categorise such content in the back end.

                    • 3cx Tunnel

                      It would be beneficial for users using a 3CX Phone system to be able to prioritise traffic using the 3CX tunnel protocol rather than STUN/SIP.

                      The 3CX tunnel protocol allows a single, encrypted tunnel between remote sites and a hosted PBX, allowing for easier configuration and more secured connections.

                      • safegurading module - probable false positives

                        the following entry came up on safeguarding report.

                        Intolerance http://www.intmensorg.info/images/thamestidewaytunnel.jpg

                        I am not sure if this is correct. Please check if it's not the correct caegory or is not a safeguarding issue please correct the error or fix the engine.

                        Thanks

                        • your export process does not offer a start AND end time option

                          your export process does not offer a start AND end time option so how can we export the hours of logs we want to see ? your export options are lacking in usability.

                          • Send now function by each scheduled report

                            For each scheduled report have a button to send now. This button will manually kick off the report and send to email group.

                            It would be good for testing scheduled reports

                              • 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

                                  • I have tried on several occasions to move more than one url between categories.

                                    It would appear you can only move 1 at a time which is crazy if you have 40 or more it is extremely long winded.

                                    • Show plain text examples

                                      When editing a guardian category (Guardian -> Categories -> Edit relevant block category -> Advanced) it would be nice to see plain English examples of how to add a each block search term. For example "Search term filtering" could show examples and the correct format to add the entries. Same with the other items on this page. Thanks.

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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…
