If you are using GPL version then search the smoothwall site, if it is not mentioned there then you will not find much support elsewhere due to the attitude of RM which was the main cause for it being forked into IP Cop.

Check IP Cop also there you may have better luck though GUI of Smoothwall are much better then IP Cop being a commercial product.

IPCop

I would recommend IPCop. It has never given me any problems, is very stable and efficient. Plus it is very easy to install and manage.

Barjees,

AoA,

Certainly IPCOP is much much better then smoothwall , with IPCOP 1.4 around the corner( b3 has been released ) . Its going to be much more stable and much more better performance as well as hardware support wise then SmoothWall.

I would recommend that you use IPCOP 1.3 or 1.4 b3.

Take Care
