A centrally managed Smoothwall is comprised of an instance of a Smoothwall product running as a parent node and one or more compatible Smoothwall products running as child nodes, being managed by the parent node.
A centrally managed Smoothwall can be used in either:
The parent node can be used to manage all child nodes in the configuration.
Every child node in a centrally managed Smoothwall must have a central management key installed and SSH enabled.
From time-to-time, you might need to work on a child node without the replication settings being applied by the parent. You can do this by disconnecting the child node locally.
