Subnet Routing Verification & Automatic Undo after 10 seconds
Currently, if I type in a incorrect route, lets say I did a 10.60.4.0/20 . It accepts it, even though the subnet should start at 10.60.0.0. This in essence makes you believe your route is in place but the Smoothwall simply ignores it. It would be nice to see a validation or do what Watchguard/Other firewalls do and prevent incorrect routes being put in.
Additionally, when a route is put in, it should apply the setting but then undo itself after 10-15 seconds unless you confirm it. Similar to when you change resolution on a windows PC. This will then prevent people accidentally putting in a route that cuts them off from the box entirely.
We look after a lot of smoothwalls in our schools and we have had so many IT managers lock themselves out of boxes (where we need to go in via the WAN to undo the setting), equally we have spent hours troubleshooting with a customer who is adamant his routes are correct but unaware Smoothwall is actually ignoring them as they are not valid.
