Customise SSL Login Page further including different login pages for different locations
Have extra options for customising the SSL Login page such as displaying an AUP before being presented with the login page.
Another option to forward to a specified web page after login such as a portal page with useful School links.
Also being able to customise different login pages based on Groups & Locations would be great.
This would be ideal. I have only got around some of the limitations using an image rather than text so far
Edd George commented
please please can this be implemented with different timeouts per locations. many thanks
Edd George commented
yes and different login timeouts for locations would be excellent.

Need also guys to allow option to edit non-ssl login page.
I like the idea of different login pages per group/locations, being able to edit the page with HTML would be good or if this isn't an option allowing <hr /> would be nice.

I like the idea of redirecting to a standard customisable HTTP page for acceptable use prior to the login page. That would also help resolve the issue when initially launching a "https" site and redirecting to the SSL login page you get the man in the middle cert (and therefore an error if you don't have it already trusted).
How about customising the SSL Login page, so the fields and login button are bigger to make it easier when using smaller devices, like tablets and smartphone devices?
I wish to use this feature. I see this a lot for BYOD when using other systems.
I was surprised that it was not a feature especially as the Smoothwall is marketed at education.
It forces the student to view a homepage which can give them links to homework, terms & conditions , results, printing etc.

Agreed - our certificate 'error' causes staff and students to look with suspicion when they should just click on 'Continue anyway'. It would be nice if the cert matched up properly.

I second the request to have the SSL login page use the FQDN rather than the IP address. This is so the certificate appears valid.
I actually had mune set up to do this once, then it reverted back to the IP address (either an update or another admin logging in)

I would also like the ability to be able to have the SSL login (and the block pages) served by the Smoothwall's DNS name as opposed to it's IP address.
We use SSL login as a captive portal for our public WiFi.This would allow us to forward initial traffic to an acceptable use page or homepage and within that include Google Analytics so we can identify devices etc used.

At current, the user is presented an ssl login page when they attempt to browse when a transparent proxy is in place.
After logging in, the smoothwall continues to load the originally requested page.
This feature would make users who log into the ssl login page via a transparent proxy, automatically redirected to an organisations home page which could be specified on Services > Authentication > SSL Login.
