URL Blocking Policy Blocks HTTP

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've created a policy to block a sample URL domain, however it seems to have the negative effect of blocking any HTTP access (permitting only HTTPS).

While reading through the documentation it was not clear to me what setting is related to this behavior?

Does anyone know?

Thanks!

Please post a screen shot of the policy setting for blocking the domain. All URLs would be blocked if you added "*" in the list of blocked URLs.

I assume the problem is you have "Restrict URL addresses" enabled. According to the help: To only allow access to URLs listed in the Allowed URL list, select Restrict URL addresses.

Well, that seem to work, thanks!

In that case wouldn't all other addresses also be blocked? If I open some HTTPS URL it works.

SSL filtering is not supported on Mac so entering an https address with path could not block access. However, it should work for the hostname. Unfortunately, at the moment I don't have a Mac at disposal so I can't test it.

That is a bit limiting, but yes, looking around in the forum we see a workaround (from you) it seems to be working!

Thanks.

You can also block from the hosts file :
