About modules

The major system components of the Smoothwall Filter and Firewall are separated into individually installed modules. Modules can be added to extend the Smoothwall’s capabilities or removed to simplify administration and reduce the theoretical risk of, yet undiscovered, security threats.

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

The Smoothwall must be connected to the Internet to install modules.
