using this amazing piece of software i have come across some problems and would appreciate all the help possible.
The Office Scenario
I am connected through a dial-up, have 4 computers connected through 602 -- 192.168.0.1 (main server) 2, 3 and 4
Q1- I was wanting unrestricted access to computer # 2 and only one website access to # 3 and 4 for that reason i used the following setting for ip filter
in the site access tab i used the following setting
and same for 192.168.0.4
but the problem is when computer #2 tries to access the internet the browser displays Access to this URL is disabled (for all websites even yahoo) puzzling - but as soon as i remove the site access rules things work fine for #2 so i end up completely blocking access to #3 and 4.
Q2- using the SMTP and POP server is it possible for say #2 computer to access other ISP POP3 and SMTP server without going through 602's as my partner recieves email via another ISP not the one through which we have our office dial-up. i like the functionality of webmail of 602 but my partner also desires to have unrestricted access to his ISP simultaneously
I may have confused some one in my barrage of questions, if you need a clarification please drop a line
Thanks in Advance

1) In the 'site access' tab, have you tried setting up computer#2 as "192.168.0.2/255.255.255.255 *",
where the url only has the * in it?
2) For the PoP3/SMTP access, all he has to do is define another account in his email client and point the PoP and SMTP addresses at the other account. Most email programs allow the defining of multiple accounts.
