You can ban an individual user from accessing the web. Unlike location banning, the user ban is only for a set period of time. You cannot configure a time period for the ban.
To ban a user, do the following:
|1.||Log in to the user portal — see Accessing the User Portal.|
|2.||Select the BAN USERS menu option.|
|3.||Enter the following information:|
|•||Username — Enter the username of the user you want to ban.|
|•||Ban expires — From the drop-down list, select the length of time for the ban. Valid values are: 15 minutes; 30 minutes; 45 minutes; 1 hour; 4 hours; 1 day; 1 week.|
The ban is enforced and current status is displayed.
Note: To lift a ban, contact your Smoothwall administrator.
