  1. Location objects for Guardian exceptions

    Source/destination exceptions within Guardian > Web Filter > Exceptions and MobileProxy should be able to use Location objects rather than typing ranges/IPs in.

    I'm thinking a similar interface to the Guardian Authentication Exceptions page.

  2. Locations to be replicated even if not in use in any policy

    Currently locations are only replicated when they are used with in a policy. Would be useful if locations are replicated even if they are not in use so both boxes have the same locations defined.

  3. Time Periods in Portal

    It would be helpful if the timeperiods defined in SmoothWall are available in the portal so a teacher would be able to block a student for that particular perioud, as not to disrupt other lessons after.

  4. Display Complete Traffic Units on Dashboard Graph

    The Dashboard traffic graph just shows "k" for the units, whereas they are technically kBytes/sec (according to Smoothwall support). Can this be updated to show kB/s? Should be a simple fix.

  5. Extend Time slots functionality to include week/date selection

    As we have bi-weekly timetables being able to further customise the time slot based on the week would be great. So for example a teacher would like Youtube enabled in their IT Suite for Tuesday Lesson 2 (Week A) and for Tuesday Lesson 5 (Week B) till the end of June.

    Being able to set up the above without having to adjust the settings each week would be great.

  6. Remove button on the Portal

    At current, there is only an Add button on the portal for temporary bans, I would like a remove button because the temporary ban may have a mistake or the user needs internet access and a Smoothwall Admin isn't available at the time.

  7. Allow Users To Put Comments On Temporary Bans On The Portal

    At Current, you can put comments on temporary bans on Services » Authentication » Temporary bans, but when you add a temporary ban on the portal, you are unable to enter comments as to why you are banning a certain user.

  8. IPS Rule Builder

    If you have ever used eEye digital security's BLINK product these last 12 years on the desktop then you have fallen in love with its IPS rule builder.

  9. Ability to configure how often or when the Spam Quarantine report runs.

    The ability to configure when the spam quarantine report runs and how often it runs per day would be a nice feature on the GUI.

  10. Ability to change the font size on the Email footer.

    We would like to change the font size on the email footer to a smaller font so it doesn't take up so much room. Use the size at present as the default and the biggest and be able to choose a couple of different smaller sizes.

  12. Synchronise email addresses from AD to spam quarantine report list with the capability of excluding some based on AD group etc.

    Customers can currently synchronise names for authentication, can this be extended to allow the email addresses to be synchronised (or not as the case maybe) between their AD server and the Spam Quarantine list. They want to be able to exclude some based on the group they are assigned to on the individual.

  13. 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.

  14. Granularity with reports

    I have provided a report of my recent web usage,for when I have been testing the software and have highlighted examples of where social networking sites are included. I have used three different colours ;-

    Yellow highlighted - Logged when I didn’t access the site so am assuming that they were links from other pages
    Green highlighted - Examples of where I did access the sites.
    Blue highlighted - When I left Facebook open overnight without actively using it.

    I understand that it would be difficult to stop the reports from showing facebook etc. when there are links to it…

  15. A search tool to see what rules affect ip a.x.y.z

    Large list such as those found on zone bridging and outgoing sources pages can be hard to read.

    We should provide a means of easily looking at rules that affect only the traffic we are concerned with.

    some thing like a search box(s) for ip address, source ip, dest ip, source port, dest port, etc. When the search is run, only the rules that will affect that traffic are displayed.

  16. Select what adapters Guardian uses.

    Right now our main likes are 2 T1s bonded together...for 3Mbps. We have LOTS of IPs for these old lines.

    Our Secondary connection is a new 50Mbps service we use for guardian http traffic. Guardian for some reason only sends out HTTPS traffic via the Primary connection never the secondary.

    It would be nice to control what adapters Guardian uses.

  18. Static Firewall Log - be able to view the info from Networking » Filtering » IP block - where log has been enabled

    When an IP block has been enabled in Networking » Filtering » IP block and set to log, it would be good to be able to select a filtered output on the firewall log to just show these blocked attempts and their source IP.

  19. 4OD is not working for the school who uses it intensively for children education.

    4OD from channel4 is used by a lot of school in their teaching environment. There has been issues when playing these videos when going through smoothwall web proxy. The videos work fine without the web proxy.
    The issue has been reported nearly 3 months ago but still hasn't been resolved.
    I think this issue needs addressing and some resource directed in to this to fix the problem

  20. MD5 sum not provided when customers download ISOs manually

    When using http://customer.smoothwall.net/download to download an ISO for a product, the MD5 sum is not provided so customers and resellers cannot verify their downloads. Could this be provided?

    When Support send a download link via email, the MD5 sum and file size is included in the email.
