Thanks Matthew

Yep, you are correct in that it is not particularly usefully to not have
that feature.

I will check if the NAS follows through with an interim update but don't
really recall seeing any later packets coming through.

It is a known issue with the NAS which I only discovered during the trial,
hence me putting out the question regarding the proxy.  Regarding you
mentioning getting the IP address from the DHCP logs, is there known way to
do such?

May need to look at other systems as we need accounting for our content
filter system.

Thanks for the input once again.

   - Regards
