  2. Mac Mobile Proxy - Enable option to change Defualt Port for client to talk back to the your smoothwall.

    Most high level ports could be blocked by default rules in a personal fire wall or router in a personal home. It would be nice to change the default port to a more common port like 80 or 443.

  3. Add to Whitelist Option - Spam Quarantine

    Would it be possible to have a 'add sender to whitelist/blacklist' button on the quarantine viewer?

    This would make it a lot easier than compiling a list each time a false positive hits the quarantine, then adding it to the whitelist.

  4. Have a 'who' option on web proxy - auth - manage policies to be able to restrict who can / cannot login to a specific interface.

    Have a 'who' option on web proxy - auth - manage policies to be able to restrict who can / cannot login to a specific interface.

    The idea behind this would be to restrict which members of specific groups can login, so for example if you want everyone to login the who would be 'everyone' but if you wanted to setup a sixth form wireless and only members of sixth form could login you could select who as 'sixth form' and every member of every other group you have would be blocked from using this interface.

  5. The ability to open certain IP ports at specific times

    I'm thinking specifically about Skype. Being a boarding school management think it important that Skype be available for students to contact home on an evening. Being able to specify certain ports to open on an evening would facilitate this.

  7. Reports based on location

    Allow reporting to be refined by policy-object location - eg "what sites was prof.plum visiting in the_library?" (leadpipe.com as it turns out)

  8. Seperate IPS policy per port forward

    At present it seems like if you want to enforce IPS on a port forward, you tick one box which applies ALL of the active policies upon the port. This can be unbelievably confusing, especially when trying to troubleshoot which policy is causing a problem. Hopefully there's a way to drill these options down to select which policies apply to each port separately.

  9. Shutdown button in GUI warning message

    When you click in the GUI on the shutdown button, the SW will go down. It would be nice if you first get a message if you are sure.

  11. Audit control for bypass access of admin capable users

    Audit control, or logging, for bypass access of admin capable users. The customer would like to be able to track when staff use the “bypass feature” to gain or allow access to blocked URL’s.

  12. Get Expired Bans on the Portal to disappear after a certain time period

    At current, after Temporary bans expire, they stay until a Smoothwall Admin clears the expired bans on the Web Control Panel.
    A few users have requested that expired bans should disappear after a set period of time say 24 hours.

  13. Avoid truncating domain names in 'Top Domain' section of Dashboard

    At the moment long domain names are truncated in the 'Top Domain' section of the Dashboard.

    For example the domain
    'o-o.preferred.iad09g05.v23.lscache5.c.youtube.com' is shown as 'o-o.preferred.iad09g05.v6.lsc'

    In this case it is not possible to see the actual domain 'youtube.com' in the list.

    Either reduce the white space in this area in order to show more text, or truncate the start of the domain name and use an ellipsis to show it has been truncated.

    The domain name is more important to understand what is happening then sub domain name.

  14. can we add a password limit for trys on the ssh service after 3 attempts IP is blocked?

    can we add a password limit for try's on the ssh service after 3 attempts IP is blocked? This is for use in an ISP type scenario where users are guessing the password after numerous attempts, so if we can block after so many attempts will stop this from happening

  15. Allow reports based on named time periods

    Reports should include a filter on named time period - these are tagged in the logs so should be included to be reported on eg. "most web usage during core hours"?

  16. Guardian should output or at least log warnings when DNS requests take a long time.

    Seen in a recent ticket - if DNS forward or especially reverse lookups take a
    long time to resolve, there can be severe browsing consequences, problems
    accessing the proxy, loading IPTables etc.

    Guardian should throw up a visual alert/warning in the web GUI, or at least log
    a warning message in a log that will be clear for customers or support
    engineers to see.

  17. Link 'Top Domain' section of Dashboard to related reports

    Link the entries in the 'Top Domains' section on the Dash Board to the reporting engine, so that you can click through to see who has been using the top domains.

    For consistency this wants to be the same list of options that you get in the 'Top Domains' report.

  18. On the Dashboard remove the heart beat IP addresses from the IP statistics section.

    On the Dashboard remove the fail over heart beat IP addresses from the 'Per IP Address Statistics'.They don't really belong with the rest of the network devices as they only communicate between themselves, and won't be sending data externally. Also the data volumes are well above what other nodes generate.

    They could be relocated to the 'Interface and Host Bandwidth' section, including a separate section for 'Fail Over' similar to how 'SSL VPN' appears here.

    Failing that, group them together in their own section.

  19. Group or suppress domains used by a particular 'applications' in reports

    Web 'applications', for example Google maps call many other domains or sub domains during their use.
    For example maps.google.co.uk has repeated requests to:
    mt0.google.com
    mt1.google.com
    khm0.google.co.uk
    khm1.google.co.uk

    Similarly facebook.com stores photos at various sub domains of fbcdn.net

    I often see these appearing in the top domains list, where they reduce the number of 'real' domains that can appear in the list.

    It would be beneficial if they could be suppressed from the reports, or for bandwidth and hits purposes grouped with the calling domain.

  20. Improve HW failover to monitor connectivity and services

    Currently hardware fail-over requires a full failure of the primary system and to become unavailable on the heartbeat interface for it to switch over to the slave. This can mean a system with a failed filtering service or network interface will be left running instead of switching to the fail-over system.

    Ideally the fail-over system could be expanded to include monitoring enabled critical services for failure (Eg Guardian, VPN etc) and also network interfaces for loss of connectivity.
