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 off and click Log user out. The Smoothwall logs the user off immediately.
- 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 our help topic, Banning users temporarily.
