        • Administrator comments for Guardian Destination Exceptions

          There should probably be a comment section for the Guardian Destination Exceptions, as many admins are having to plug in multiple IPs and subnets, but cannot keep track of what they were for.

          This may require a rebuild of the HTML behind the web form, however.

          • Safeguarding Reports - Restrict by Group

            You can restrict admin access on Smoothwall and limit that access just to the reports section.

            we have a dedicated safeguarding officer, for student welfare. At present, if I provide him access he can view all of our stuff data as well.

            Can we have further functionality in the admin restriction to allow particulular users to only view certain 'groups'.

              • More Time Slot Options

                Your competitors gave us the ability to set schedules not just by recurring weekly time slots, but by specific dates as well. This helps a lot when there will be events or people on campus that need the filter changed/disabled but only temporarily. This enables Sys Admins to schedule these things without having to worry about it after hours or on days off. For instance, I find out that there will be a team of contractors on campus during summer during a certain set of days when I happen to be scheduled to be out of the country on vacation…

                  • We need LACP

                    The LAN bond feature needs to support LACP, so that, if we are using more than 1 Gigabit WAN connection, we can use it! As it is now, we have 2 ISPs, with 1Gb each. However, because there is only 1 LAN connection, at 1Gbps, the maximum we can send/receive from the WAN is 1 gigabit per second. The LAN connection becomes saturated, even though the ISP connections are only at 50%.

                      • bandwidth limiting

                        i am getting really frustrated having to keep calculating the bandwidth speeds that i am setting in the webproxy>bandwidth limiting. it would be great if you can accomodate different "views" setting so i can choose "megabit/second" that we are all used to instead of having to convert Kbyte/s to megabit on google every tim ei want to make a change. can be confusing sometimes and i cant see this feature being to difficult to implement.

                          • Can we please have an exclude by response in web filter (so we can exclude 200)

                            When looking for why a website is not working, It would be helpful if we could exclude working results from the list. (showing only abnormal results)

                              Can you update the VPN subsystem so that the certificate is generated with SHA256 (or better) instaead of md5, as newer versions of OpenVPN clients don't support md5 hash algorithms.

                              • List All Domains Accesses By A User

                                I would like to run a report for ALL domains accessed by a specific user over a particular time frame, not just the top domains accessed. Unfortunately listing all the URL's accessed by a user means nothing to a user's line manager when the user is being interviewed bout it and, sorry to say, is cumbersome.

                                      Once backup configs are entered it would be very useful to test the back config rather than find out some time later that it failed

                                      • Colour on block page changes to Amber if it is Softblock (from red for block)

                                        If the page is soft blocked the ribbon across the top should be amber, rather than red when the page is blocked.
