Configuring Administration Access

Note: This topic applies to the Hearst Release.

An alternative method of accessing your Smoothwall for administration purposes is to use a Secure Shell (SSH) console. From the Admin options page, you can control whether remote access is allowed.

Note: SSH access is enabled by default upon installation. Upgraded systems where SSH is disabled, remain as such.
