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:


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 on port 57 to your IP on port 22

To install the mod simply run the following from commandline:

sh ./ [/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.
