    The web interface is outstanding - very intuitive. Will there be a way to create (various) user-created filters that removes "mundane" IP traffic from the traffic list generated in "Insights"? Various filter lists could be created with Destination IPs and ranges of destination IPs to include or exclude. A filter list could also be added to be selecting the Destination IP addresses on the web page and adding them to a given filter so that the Destination IPs are included or excluded when the filter is applied. I imagine using this more to exclude mundane IP traffic so I can see the more unusual accesses in the Insights list. Many thanks,

    @richard, make sense.  Will ask our developers to create an issue on this.

    This is AWESOME.  I just installed my firewalla 2 weeks ago and running the iOS interface on my ipad was making me so crazy that I was going to inquire about returning the device!

    An obvious addition I hope will be the general ability to manage the network settings through the web.  Right now, it seems like the web interface is primarily a portal to view info

    Areas that I especially like:

    The Devices screen! This is SO MUCH easier than looking through the device list on the ipad!  I love being able to click on the device and getting full details on it.  But, why can't we edit the network information for devices here?  It looks like we can add rules, but I'd like to manage the DHCP reservation here.    The device screen seems like an obvious location to go to to manage these settings.  For instance, I have a bunch of devices that need to have reserved IP addresses.  Doing that on the iOS interface was frankly a collossal PITA, but on the web interface, it could be dramatically easier if you allowed editing there

    Having it locally would have a massive boost in responsiveness. FWG to AWS to desktop, round trip is unwarranted.

    The web server on the local FWG could be updated as per existing schedule or with a separate package and versioning.

    Please do think about having it locally.

    Hello folks,

    I love the firewalla web interface (with its limitations) and I use quite often. But I am struggling stupidly to manage more than one box from the firewalla web interface.

    If I press over "manage boxes" I have no option to add a second box. Neither I can from the phone app main screen. How is it done? Thanks.

    You will have to login via the other box to manage it.  The web interface to manage multiple units is not yet ready for prime time (as of the time of this message)

    Thanks for the prompt reply. While I am unsure about what you mean by that, the only way I found is to use an incognito mode to open the second one. I thought It was implemented, thanks.
    Cheers.

    I really appreciate Firewalla devoting resources to a having web interface in addition to the phone apps for many reasons, including having a larger screen to view more information at once, exporting logs/events/etc, and what looks like a big picture goal of a user being able to import configuration settings lists such as the block list, and generally being able to save time.

    My compliments to the Firewalla devs for adding onto your existing development workloads what seems like an entirely new dimension of development, and making it all look easy in the process lol, considering how well formed and smooth it is already, particularly given how young this new long-term development effort is.

    Thanks! I look forward to continue trying new features and watching it grow.
