Mapping directory groups to local Smoothwall Filter and Firewall groups

Tip: The group mapping that you create here doesn't necessarily have to reflect your domain structure. You can create group mappings according to the filter policies or permissions in your network organization. For example, as a school your organizational units might reflect the year or grade structure (Year or Grade 1), while group mappings reflect the school type (Junior School, High School).
