    Smoothwall CG Admin access

    I have just noticed that the admin web interface will only allow my computer to access the web interface. I now need to allow somebody else access to this interface from another PC. I cannot find anywhere in the setting about an access list or anything that.
    Can somebody point me in the right direction?

    Should be in System -> Administration -> External Access

    Hope this helps!

    The default rule of all and all is already in place there and adding the workstation IP as well has had no effect.... I shall keep playing thanks.

    Could be a proxy issue - make sure the machine(s) you want to access the admin i/face from are set not to use the proxy for CG's address. If you try and access the admin interface through the proxy itself, things sometimes go a bit bonkers.

    PS. Oh no, there's 2 of us now ;-)

    We get the same problem, although rarely does anyone else need access to any part of SG. Make sure IE/Firefox is set not to use the proxy to access your proxy lol.
