About web proxy settings

The web proxy is turned on by default to direct traffic to the Smoothwall Filter for content filtering. Traffic is automatically routed through the first internal interface. For a detailed description of how to change this, see our help topic, Configuring the web proxy with proxy auto-config (PAC) scripts. The Smoothwall Filter comes with a comprehensive set of web filter policies by default and an authentication policy that you can use immediately to protect your users and your organization.
