Banning or logging a user out
Note: Logging a user out isn't the same as blocking a user from accessing web content. Connection-based authentication will automatically log the user back in. If the user is using SSL login, they're prompted to authenticate again.
On the SERVICES menu, under the Authentication submenu, click User activity.
- To log a user out:
- Place your mouse cursor over the user that you want to log out and click Log user out. The Smoothwall logs the user out immediately and lists them as logged out.
- To ban a user:
- Place your mouse cursor over the user that you want to ban and click Ban user. The Smoothwall copies the user’s information and displays it on the Temporary bans page where you can configure the ban. See the help topic, Banning users temporarily.
