Managing Modules

Note: This topic applies to the Edinburgh Release.

The Smoothwall System's major system components are separated into individually installed modules. Modules can be added to extend the Smoothwall System’s capabilities, or removed in order to simplify administration and reduce the theoretical risk of, as yet un-discovered, security threats.

Note: Modules must be registered against your Smoothwall System serial number before they can be installed and used. For further information, please consult your Smoothwall partner or, if purchased directly, Smoothwall.

The Smoothwall System must be connected to the Internet in order to install modules.
