Smoothwall - more authentication issues for School Guardian
One step forward... two steps back. Or thats what it feels like with Smoothie at the moment!
NTLM Auth is now on. All PCs connected to the domain being filter perfectly.
Student's own PCs, which aren't connected to the domain, should get an authentication box in which to enter their network username and password....
.... problem is some do get the authentication box and some don't - it just hangs with the browser URL http://smoothwall:800/?sgtransntlmde...w.google.co.uk (or whatever their homepage is) and doesn't bring up an authentication box.
The problem is it works on my non-domain laptop in Firefox, Safari and IE8. For some of the students it works in Firefox, Safari and IE8. For some it won't bring up an auth box in IE8 but will in the other browsers, for some it won't bring up an auth box in any browser....
Even two guys who have identical laptops with the same OS, and browsers. For one it works, for the other it doesn't....
Really starting to pull my hair out with this now... it just seems to keep throwing up problems!
Any suggestions would be gratefully recieved.
