Adding new interface connections

Note: With the Leeds-21 release you can add more than twenty interfaces. However, they won't be replicated on any child nodes.

Add bypass ports

If you're using a Smoothwall Filter and Firewall hardware appliance, specifically S4, S8, S10, S12 or S14, you can add bypass ports. Otherwise, the Global settings section doesn't appear:

  1. On the NETWORK menu, under the Configuration submenu, click Interfaces.
  2. Under the Global settings section, select the relevant port combination to short together and click Save changes.
  3. Note: The combination of ports available for bypassing are grouped according to function on the Smoothwall Filter and Firewall hardware appliance and can't be changed.

Procedure

  1. On the NETWORK menu, under the Configuration submenu, click Interfaces.
  2. Click Add new interface and enter a meaningful Name for your interface.
  3. Choose the Type of the interface connection that you want to add:
  4. Enter a descriptive Comment for your interface and click Add.
