User-ID/Facebook allow group

User-ID/Facebook allow group



I am having trouble with this configuration. 


In a Windows domain environment. 


I installed User-ID on server and confirmed User-ID is running and IP/user mapping is all listed in the monitoring log. 


User-ID agent is connected in the firewall.


I created two AD groups one that permits FB and one that blocks it. 


I created two security rules with two different URL Filtering profiles.


One URL filtering profile blocks FB the other doesnt. 


I tagged a group to each rule: (I tweaked the original inbound to outbound rule that was in place before enabling User-ID). The rule without the user tagging worked previous. 




Allow Group has the URL filtering that allows FB


Block Group has the URL filtering that blocks FB


the FB block group precedes the FB allow group. 


When I enable these rules-all outbound traffic stops


Not sure why...

Best place to start would be the logs to see which rule is getting hit. Also I always put allow rules before deny rules just in case they conflict.
