Summary

How to allow Dropbox with Smoothwall.

Problem

You are unable to access Dropbox.

Dropbox does not support SNI and therefore will not work through a Transparent HTTPS Proxy.

When installing, the Dropbox installer does not perform consistently with proxies.

Solution

Note: If you are using Dropbox for PC and the proxy connection fails, the application reverts to using a direct connection.
