This is a must have for any Smoothwall Express Setup. This mod gives you full control of your interfaces including mutliple IP addresses, ports and mac control:

full_firewall_control

The mod gives ultimate control with the following:

  1. Specify origin source IP/Network
  2. Specify the origin/destination ports to be open for your specific IP/Network

e.g. Open access for the IP 222.111.55.333 on port 57 to your IP xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx on port 22

To install the mod simply run the following from commandline:

[html]wget http://storage.googleapis.com/google-code-archive-downloads/v2/code.google.com/stans-smoothwall3mods/fullfirewall-3.3.3.1-Express-3.0-i386.run
sh ./fullfirewall-3.3.3.1-Express-3.0-i386.run [/html]

**NOTE: Smoothwall Express 3.0 should be up to and including update 9 – Maintenance > Updates.

Log back into the Smoothwall GUI and you will now see the Full Firewall Control interface.
