    Let me google that for you <---- Click Me

    You basically need to deploy it via GPO in to the Trusted Root Certificate Store

    Are you using SSL Login as your authentication method? By default smoothwall uses the IP rather than the FQDN for this. Speak to Smoothwall they should be able to modify one of the files which changes this behaviour.

    yep

    user accounts are linked by groups in ad/ldap and they are presented with the ssl page when they open a browser,

    this is then locked down to only allow one connection per user as it stops them using each others accounts

    got a call in just waiting on the reply

    cheers
