  1. Export more than 100 entries from log viewer

    It would be useful if it were possible to export from the log viewer more entries than are displayed on the screen at once. On earlier versions of Smoothwall I was able to export up to 5000 entries, IIRC, and I found this useful to very quickly provide staff with evidence of a student's browsing activity without having to compile and generate a report.

    We are looking to enable the export of more entries from the log viewer. However, for larger scale exports the preferred approach is to generate a report.

    We are in the process of restructuring and simplifying the report templates so it will become much easier to locate the specific template you require for this report.

  2. Enable NAGIOS monitoring

    NAGIOS system is included but closed to external monitoring. I would like to be able to monitor all aspects of Smoothwall system using an external NAGIOS server.

  3. Add support for Citrix Xenserver tools

    Add support to allow Citrix Xenserver tools to be installed (VMWare support is there - why not Xenserver?)

  4. Allow squid error pages to be customised.

    The requested URL could not be retrieved

    While trying to retrieve the URL: http://dsdsdsdsasadsschee.com/

    The following error was encountered:

    Unable to determine IP address from host name for dsdsdsdsasadsschee.com

    The dnsserver returned:

    Name Error: The domain name does not exist.

    This means that:

    The cache was not able to resolve the hostname presented in the URL.

    Check if the address is correct.

    Your cache administrator is $foo.

    --------

    This breaks their minds and they ask for the random website to be unblocked because "the proxy said something".

    Suggestions:

    1) Allow Squid to serve custom error pages, either locally or from…

  6. temporary rules that timeout

    Ability to create a rule that times out and deletes its self after x amount of time.

    This would help in situations where I need to make a rule to allow some machine to get somewhere that I know that I need to delete after I've done whatever needs done. I sometimes forget to go in a delete the rule, meaning stuff can get where it shouldn't.

  7. Get Expired Bans on the Portal to disappear after a certain time period

    At current, after Temporary bans expire, they stay until a Smoothwall Admin clears the expired bans on the Web Control Panel.
    A few users have requested that expired bans should disappear after a set period of time say 24 hours.

  8. Improve log refresh and display

    In Guardian3 there has been a noticiable time increase in accessing logs due to the amount of results displayed on a page. It should be displayed (as in previous versions) as pages with 100, 500 or 1000 results per page. Also it should not just display the first 1000 upto 50000 (depending on your selection) as there has been times when there has been more than 50000 results and unable to narrow down the criteria.
