  2. Allow /var/log, /var/log/datastore and /var/log/dansguardian to be on different drives

    In big (ish) deployments these take up a LOT of space, and disk time. Having the lot on one set of disks means that the disks can't keep up, and there's often problems with making the drive/array/partition big enough to store all the logs an organisation may need (e.g. keeping 12 months for compliance)

    Smoothwall install currently is clever enough to spot two disks and provides the option of having the system on one, and /var/log on another.

    If this option was simply extended to allow further seperation for /var/log/datastore and /var/log/dansguardian this would help in large installations where there…

  4. Support for Captive Auto-Login on Apple Devices

    Support for the built in Captive Auto-Login program on Apple Devices, when connecting to a wireless network, the apple device tries to figure out if it is connected to the internet by trying to resolve "http://www.apple.com/library/test/success.html", if it is not successful then it asks the user to log in to the Wireless network.
    At current, this auto-login prompt doesn't come up and to authenticate with the wireless network through a smoothwall, you need to open your browser and log into the SSL Login Page.

  5. Central Management - Central Alerting

    In the new Central management system, a customer has observed that where they are operating a 'managed service' for their client sites they would like to see an alerting ability on the Parent node that emails the team when a child node fails. They would like to configure alerts for available updates, failed services, high loads, connection failures, inability of the parent node to contact child node etc.

  8. User Agent as policy object

    In some circumstances it would be useful to be able to define the user agent as a policy object for use in Guardian. For example the Microsoft Office Existence Discovery UA is used by Office to check for live versions of documents as Office doesn't support NTLM it can cause authentication pop-ups, being able to set the UA to not require authentication could be a fix for this.

  9. Colors in realtime logs

    Inbound blocked rose, outbound blocked RED, forward light green, outbound allowed green, etc ..

    It would make looking @ the Realtime logs easier. Everything blends together otherwise.

  10. 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.

  13. Censord Integration with SMTP system inappropriate content/DLP.

    Integrate Censord with the SMTP system, to provide inappropriate content scanning capability. IE; block offensive language - could this also serve a minor DLP role too? Develop censord to facilitate regex scanning perhaps.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
