Response Page Operation

All,

So, just a possible silly question about the order if you will of response page activation - specifically around the Application Block and the URL Block.  Per the documentation:

Application Block Page:  Activated when application access not allowed by policy and blocked.

URL Filtering: Activated when blocked by URL filtering policy.

So, is it reasonable to assume that these pages would be blocked in order of policy enforcement or should I say whichever hits first?

If I have a policy rule that is blocking the application "Hootstuite" for example and in that same rule, I have it in my URL policy that *.hootsuite.com / hootsuite.com is also blocked, my assumption would be that the URL policy page would hit first.  Would this be correct?

Edit:  One other addition for clarification.  Say I have the application block page enabled.  I go to one of my default block rules for a VPN client, so it looks something like this:

1. Permit VPN user to Server via ms-rdp  (no URL filtering policy enabled)

2. Deny VPN user any any

Currently, if that user tries to use any other application it will just not work.  Am I understanding correctly that once I enable the application block page, they will be presented with it? 

Like what you see?
