  1. Temporary rules

    IT would be good to be able to put in a rule "allow X in location Y until 5pm" - especiually via the portal. Could eventually replace the hacky "temp ban" group mangle?

    Edit: this is specifically "rules which expire, and then go away" so "allow this site until 17:00 on the 12th of July 2010"

  2. Alternate Line Colouring throughout

    Not all areas have alternate line colouring e.g. Guardian >> Policy Objects >> User Defined, which makes it difficult to track which edit icon you need to click.

    Alternatively, or ideally as well as, a click on the name of the item should open a pop up with the options there, so I could click on Staff Allowed and be offered Edit and Delete in a context menu.

    An optional comment metadata field for entries in these user defined groups would also be very handy, so that when a URL is unblocked a note can be attached with requesting teacher,…

  4. Improve ntp time syncing within a cluster

    Relating to feature request #2085, if the master of a cluster could be configured as an ntp server and reference it's local time, or a specified internal server instead of defaulting to an external ntp server to give the ability for a cluster to stay in time sync with each other even if an external ntp server can't be reached.

    planned  ·  Philip Smith responded

    Support for Android devices is currently a project in planning. It is a lot harder to achieve under Android due to the lack of an administration mode. However, we hope to bring a product to market mid-year.

  9. Fix log rotation

    Sometimes logs don't rotate as they should, file name of logs changes, even though content hasn't changed, meaning that looking for changes or backing up incrementally is difficult.

  12. Need a place to enter the password for the FTP user in the Scheduler screen.

    Need a place to enter the password for the FTP user in the Scheduler screen. If it exists, there should be a link to that page when editing schedules.

  13. Proper headers when generating reports

    When you generate an report via email or 'scheduled' they should have more information about what the report pertains to. Report title, username(s) or group(s), just to name a few.

  14. Prevent multiple reports being generated

    If you click on a report, it does not start for some time. I often find I clcik it again and can end up with two or three copies of the same report running, which I have to cancel the spurious ones.

  15. Safeguarding Reports keep Timing out

    This seems to be a problem with all reporting of any size...takes too long to run and then times out. Reporting continues to be a weak feature with Smoothwall.

  16. Printable views for Rulesets and other configuration pages

    When reviewing certain configuration pages, the displayed information (for example Firewall Rules - e.g. Network » Firewall » Firewall rules) in some of the columns is truncated - or additional text is only visible if a field is "expanded" (by clicking something) or by hovering the mouse pointer over the text field. This makes reviewing the overall ruleset (in one go) quite difficult.

    It would be useful if there was a "print" button that created a nicely formatted printable version of the page, with *all* information present, that could either be viewed onscreen (perhaps via PDF) or (dare I say)…

  18. Idex Client roll out

    It would be useful to have the ability to bundle the cert in with the Idex Client when you push it out.
