I am trying to block some websites such as music.yahoo.com ,mylife.com Spaces.live.com and Talkgadget.com . But they aren't one of the listed choices and I am unable to add them to my blocked application list. How can I do that?
Solved! Go to Solution.
You can add them in the block-list of URL-filtering profile or create a custom category (Objects> Custom URL Category or Objects > Custom Objects > Url Category) containing these URL with action block.
I will suggest you to configure URL filtering profile and then specify these URLs in block-list. URL filtering profile provide more granular control over the URL/websites that you want to block/allow.
Could you please follow below mentioned steps:
Step-1: Identify the URL filtering profile that has been attached along with this security policy.
For example: Here it is configured as "alert-all"
Step-2: Go to Object > Custom Object > Url Category: create a custom block list and add all required URL's on it.
Example: Name- Custom-Block-URL
Go to the Object > Security-profile > URL filtering > Open "alert-all" profile
Select the category "Custom-Block-URL" and set the action to "block"
Step-4: Then commit the changes.
Hope this helps.
