Working with Outbound Access Policies

Note: This topic applies to the Glamis Release.

The Smoothwall enables you to create policies which determine outbound access for network traffic and services depending on:

The groups an authenticated user belongs to; or
The source and destination of the traffic

Note: Once the network traffic matches a policy, the Smoothwall does not apply any further policy matching.

The Smoothwall contains a default outbound access policy which uses the Allow all port rule, and allows unrestricted outbound access to the Internet . For more information, see Managing Blocked Services .

You can reorder outbound access policies to suit your requirements. If the outbound network traffic or service does not match any policy, the Default policy is applied.
