Adding exception rules for traffic generated by the Smoothwall Filter and Firewall

Note: If IP address spoofing is turned on for any Guardian authentication policy (see the help topic, Creating authentication policies), the LLB pool configured here isn't applied to local spoofed traffic because it's not seen as coming from Guardian.

Prerequisite

For each proxy service, select the default interface to use for traffic generated by the Smoothwall:

  1. On the NETWORK menu, under the Configuration submenu, click Source NAT & LLB rules.
  2. Under the Local traffic section, for each service, from the list, select the appropriate load balancing pool to use and click Save changes.

Procedure

  1. On the NETWORK menu, under the Configuration submenu, click Source NAT & LLB rules.
  2. Under the Source NAT rules section, click Add rule. Otherwise, find the rule that you want to place the new rule before or after, place your mouse cursor over the rule, click Add and then select either Rule above or Rule below.
  3. Select the Source IP addresses and Destination IP addresses where traffic is received from as identified in the network packet and click Add. Otherwise, leave blank to source NAT traffic for all IP addresses.
  4. Select the Services for this rule and click Add. Otherwise, leave blank to include all services.
