About the authentication policy wizard

Authentication policies use an authentication method to identify users so that the Smoothwall Filter can apply your filtering policies to the relative users in either a transparent or non transparent mode, see our help topic, About authentication policies. You can use the policy wizard to create transparent and nontransparent web proxy authentication policies with various authentication methods, see our help topic, Authentication Methods. The Smoothwall Filter applies authentication policies in the order they're displayed on the Manage policies Page page.
