file blocking continue page issue

Not applicable


I am using PANOS 4.0.3, and have created a file blocking profile object with action = continue , this should then prompt the user while downloading and on clicking continue, the user should be able to go to download the exe, etc...

The issue i am having is that on clicking continue, the browser tries to display the file i am downloading, rather than taking me to the download page, or popup... please advice.. i ahve also attached the file bloacking continue page...




This is very timely.  We also have the same issue.  File downloads properly in Firefox, Opera and Chrome - but with IE 7 and 8 (have not tried 9) when you click on continue the file opens in the browser as code.  You can't use the browser or break out of the file load for some time (I assume until the file has fully opened in the browser).  If you go "back" and refresh - then you get the option to save the file locally.  Thanks!


Hi mgoodnow,

Thanks for that, it works, but not a great solution, cause i might have the patience, but to roll this particular piece of advice to the 500 mere mortal users... will be a mission. is there any settings that one could change on IE to make this work properly ?



I agree - it's a great feature - but in the same boat.  I would like to inact this for our IT group for more testing - however, can't go forward with the current way it works.  Hopefully it's not some strange IE setting that needs changing.  Will do more testing of versions and settings.

We are having the same issues, works with Firefox, Safari, and Chrome but not Internet Explorer(6,7,8,9).  I currently have a case opened with support on this issue.

Thanks for the feedback, everyone.  As mentioned, there is currently a bug open for this issue and we will provide an update once there is more information to report.

Thanks for your patience,
