I am looking for some assistance with configuring a customized response page. The company is giving some consideration to blocking the URL category of web-advertisements and we are noticing inconsistencies when the response page appears. Currently, the page is basic HTML, no scripting. A lot of the web-advertisements on the sides and headers of pages will not display our default response page. However, if I take the URL that is blocked and access it directly via a new window, the page displays. So, how the advertisement is called within the page appears to be causing the issue. The consistency as to when and how the page appears is not acceptable to management.
Has anyone come across issues with the consistency of the response page displaying? and does anyone have any response page writing tips that might assist with this? Thanks
are all the ads being classifed as web-advertisement ? which app-id does it match if its web-browsing or ssl ?
I ended up writing custom apps to just block the connection with no response .
long list of digital ad companies
A few of the highest ones i've seen
The URL filter works on categories and should treat the pages the same regardless if they are embedded or in their own separate browser. You may want to check the URL filter logs to see if you can find out how they are being classified. I have different levels of URL filtering based on AD group and one for 'guests'. Sometimes when I see things get miscategorized, its because its not picking up on the user field.
Opening a case is always helpful and they are pretty quick to respond.
