Using Global Proxy Certificates

Note: This topic applies to the Framlingham Release.

As well as utilizing NTLM authentication to authenticate users, you can use client-side certificates to ensure only approved client devices have access to web filter policies. This provides an additional layer of security.

The same certificate is used by all devices. You must download the client certificate from the Smoothwall licensed for Secure Global Proxy, and install them on the relevant devices.

Note: The home page of the device’s browser must be set to the external IP address of your Smoothwall, and port 62444, to validate the certificate before web traffic is allowed through.
