Blocking of Https URLs


Go to solution Solved by puff-m-d,

Recommended Posts

Hi,
Currently running ESET NOD32 AV 6 and I am attempting to block social networking sites.  Can't seem to block the encrypted/Https version of these sites. For example, to block the ever so popular facebook, I went in to Advanced setup - Web and Email - Web access protection - URL address management, I checked List active and added the following addresses to the List of blocked addresses:

 

*facebook.com*

https://*facebook.com*
https://facebook.com

www.facebook.com

 


Any suggestions?
Thanks

Hello,

 

Have you enabled SSL protocol filtering by navigating the Advanced Setup GUI to: Advanced setup > Web and email > Protocol filtering > SSL and checking the "Always scan SSL protocol" box?

Thank you for the response that solved my problem.  However, this can be bypassed by disabling the real-time protection.  Is there a way to lock the real-time protection or password protect it as well as making changes in the advanced setup?

Well, I am about to answer my own question here, but this may help someone else.  To password protect settings (this includes disabling real-time protection as well). Go to Advanced Setup - User Interface - Access Setup and click set password....
Also thanks again puff m-d for the help!

Hello,

 

Glad that solved your "Blocking of Https URLs" issues and good to see you found the password protection options. Good luck!

It's not clear what connection you meant between enabling SSL scanning and disabling real-time protection which are two completely different and independent things.
