some common errors

I'm no linux maven but i have used smoothwall quite a bit. I am assuming that you are trying to log into the web interface (and not the console on the web interface) I've never seen that error message so my suggestions may not be relevant. the 3 most common error for logging into smoothwall are:

1. not specifying the correct host name (the default is smoothwall; the local lan IP address of the smoothwall should work i think).

2. not specifying one of the two possible ports, 81 or 445 (you should use 445 if possible for security's sake) from a box on the green lan (not the orange lan or externally through the red lan interface).

thus http://smoothwall:81
or https://smoothwall:445
would access most default machines.

the alternative would be (substitute your green lan IP address here)
thus http://10.1.1.1:81
or https://10.1.1.1:445

3. not using the correct user id / password. If you are trying to log into the web interface, the use "admin." If i am incorrect then, read below:

When you install smoothie, you create three users with distinct passwords

1. root for loging into the command line at the smoothwall's own terminal or the web console noted above.
2. admin for reviewing log files, doing post-installation configuration; and
3. some other user that i can't recall the name of used for accessing the dial - up which probably doesn't apply to you.

As I recall...
Use the root and setup users when logging into the Smoothwall box directly.
User the admin user to log in remotely VIA browser interface.
The admin user seemed to not accept too long of passwords. It accepted my longer password during the setup, but refused connection from a browser. When I shortened it it worked fine.
I always use the IP to connect.

That's using
http://ipaddress:81
?
Can you ping the Smoothwall box at that address? Can the Smoothwall box ping your PC?
Are your PC and the Smoothwall box setup on the same network?

Illusions - If you are using Smoothwall 2 beta then the secure port is not 455 as documented, but 441 so try

https://???.???.???.???:441

I only discovered this by logging in using the unsecure port (81) then reading the help file.

Question cant access Internet from xp client

I have a similar problem and this is my first ever entry in a forum so please forgive if I've come in the wrong way. I am able to connect to smoothwall from my XP client but when I try to configure smoothwall it doesn't accept my password for all 3 of my users ( root, setup, etc), the erroer message I get is " authorization required". Curiosly my icon on the XP says I am connected to my ADSL @ 100mps but I can't access web, can anybody suggest what might be wrong?,I am very new to Linux although I do have some experience with networking.

My understanding with Smoothwall access is; "Admin" account can access the web interface, "root" and "setup" need to access from the Smoothwall box itself, unless you have SSH enabled and are using that.
