Using External Proxy Clients

Note: This topic applies to the Edinburgh Release.

You can allow users to authenticate using Federated Login from outside the network.

To successfully enforce this, you must configure your Smoothwall System to accept the hostname in redirect requests, using a hostname which refers to the external public IP address of the system, and the private IP address if also being used internally.

You do this as follows:

1. From your Smoothwall System, go to System > Preferences > Hostname.
2. Change the System identification method drop-down from IP address to Hostname.
3. Click Save changes.
