    What's the official state of play/support regarding iOS, apps and Smoothwall? Oh, and Kindle + Smoothwall? And Android + Smoothwall?

    My horrible lot are eyeing up fondleslabs atm and I want to set their expectations accurately.

    AFAICT, I have to

    a) use transparent auth
    b) set the SW as the gateway for fondleslab clients (dhcp, not an issue)

    What I'm unsure about is how to:

    c) Redirect anything that attempts to use non-standard ports
    d) Log failures somewhere.

    ipad: there's a browser app which redirects web traffic for external use. Internally - transparent proxy ok, you need to whitelist itunes and some youtube urls
    android: transparent proxy generally ok - no known issues
    kindle: argh, this is not a web device, needs to go directly thru firewall atm

    redirecting nonstandard ports would be pretty tough - thankfully it does not seem to be needed. Failures would be logged on firewall.
