Users provides a view of all current "users" or unique username on the local network(s).

The basics of users and user management are described in the User Management documentation.

Each row represents a single a user (unique username) that has been seen on any LAN interface.

As NG Firewall scans and processes network traffic, the platform and many of the apps will save information about users on the network. This information is stored in the "User Table" and the Users view provides a view into the user table.


The user view by default shows all users and some basic information about each session.

  • Refresh refreshes the grid with the current active sessions.
  • Reset View resets the view to the default view. Any changes to the default view are saved in your local browser session.
  • Add can be used to manually add users to the user table.

However, As users are discovered they are automatically added to the user table.

  • Export exports the current user table to a JSON file.
  • Import imports a JSON file into the user table

More controls can be access by mousing over any column head and using the drowdown menu on the column header.

  • Sort Ascending sorts the selected column in ascending order.
  • Sort Descending sorts the selected column in descending order.
  • Columns allows the removal or addition of columns to the current view.
  • Filter provides a way to filter current data on this column with the provided value.
  • Save saves any changes manually made by the administrator

Unlike Sessions and Hosts, the user table is saved and permanent. The administrator can edit, modify, and save the values of the attributes for each User.


User bandwidth quotas are assigned through the Bandwidth Control app after configuring the Bandwidth Control setup wizard. In the Users view you can:

  • View the status of user quotas.
  • Override the default quota.
  • Refill the quota.
  • Drop the quota.
