    SmoothWall- Bypass Domain Completely

    Hey,

    Recently moved from Censornet to Smoothwall. With censornet I could completely bypass a particular website so that it went straight through with no log etc. This was a really helpful feature especially with our own website.

    Is there anything like that in Smooth wall?

    The closest thing without bypassing the smoothie altogether is Whitelisting.
    If you want to do it for a single site you'll want to create a custom category in Guardian » Policy objects » User defined. This will then show up in the policy Wizard, where you'll want to set the action to 'Whitelist' along with your chosen Who / What / Where / When.

    What's the site in question and on what device? There may be some additional workarounds.

    At the moment it's a bit of an in theory so I don't have any exact examples. I was going to add our own domain in there as I was requested to see if it would be possible (hornsea.eriding.net).

    I'm assuming you mean client device in which case my main target is Windows 7 based PC's and about 10 Macs (but they're macs so I'm not as worried ).

    Thanks for the answer
