  1. user activity column filters

    User Activity, Can it be made so that on the user activity page the columns can be filtered? That way I can only list users who are logged in via a certain mechanism (if you use RADIUS/BOYD it floods the list)

      • 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

        • Naming Web Filter Policies

          I'd like to have the ability to name web filter policies that I create or at least have a notes field would allow me to summarize a policy's function in my words, and in a description that's relevant to my school district's requirements.

          • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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 hostname

                        Safeguarding Report to include IP Address and Hostname for breach. This way you don't have to run Blocked User to get IP and DHCP log to get device name. Which will cut down investigation time by 2/3rd's.

                                    I need the Dynamic DNS service update to allow me to deploy the power and convenience of smoothwall to remote locations that do not have static IP. Without this service, I need to use alternate/competitor solutions.

                                    • exclusion

                                      Allow url to be excluded from multiple rulesets in one exclusion rather than having to add the same url numerous times for different rulesets.

                                      • Allow htcp protocol & cache digests

                                        Allow HTCP and cache digest sharing with optional port changes for both ICP and HTCP for flexibility and digest bits per entry setting for greater accuracy.... ICP protocol alone produces too many false positives and has other disadvantages....digests alone would reduce chattiness between other non smoothwall proxies
