    Smoothwall & FROG

    Hi techies,

    Frog can't seem to download/upload gz files because the message comes up with 'banned extension' from the smoothwall. They want to download the update from schools.frogtrade.com. I must admit, I'm new with the smoothwall environment and I've added the URL in the Custom Allowed Content section of our policies. However, this didn't work.

    Any help be appreciated

    Thanks

    Adding the domain to custom allowed is probably wise - custom allowed overrides all other rules. If that's not working (have you hit soft restart, aka apply changes in newer s/w) then give support a tinkle, I bet it is something simple.

    PS. if you want to unblock archives globally, it is in the "file security" policy... but generally, i'd advise against that.

    So far I've got the following settings:

    In the Filtering - Filters section
    File extension and MIME type categories
    Archives (unchecked).
    *Note this will be checked later when I'm confident it's working*

    filter - user defined categories
    Domains and URLs:
    schools.frogtrade.com

    Am I missing something somewhere?

    Thanks again
