  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. Support for packet capture within the user interface

    It would be extremely useful to be able to perform a packet capture (.pcap / tcpdump) from the Smoothwall web interface for the purposes of troubleshooting. Presumably this is simply achieved if you have root access and can log in over SSH, but in environments where this is not available, there is no way currently to perform a packet capture and a very useful troubleshooting option is therefore not possible.

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  8. 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

  9. Destination IP column on Realtime Web Filter report

    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.

  10. 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).

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  15. Quota disable access to streaming media

    Yes given this note: 'Any content being streamed or downloaded by a user will not be stopped when the user’s quota runs out.' This should not be the case at all and there should be a way to make this note no longer valid, have the quota stop all streaming media or downloads when the timer has run itself out.

  16. slient quota

    I was thinking why even have a notification for applying a time quota since even without clicking the button it still works?

  17. Search via phrase

    You can search via the report - search terms, but can only select a day and only searches for 2 hour slot.

    It would be nice to have a report that you can search for a phrase and select a week, month and show the results.

  19. Email a student if they do something that would appear on the daily safeguarding email

    It would be good if Smoothwall could email a student if they do something that would appear on the daily safeguarding email?

  20. Allow access for non-admins to block and unblock pages.

    Filter lists can only be updated by admins. Setting users as admins provides unnecessary and possibly risky access, even with the most restrictive permissions. Providing a user portal or other method for specified users to block or unlock pages would be helpful.
