How do one completely drop packets for a specific url or url-category?

When setting up an url-filtering you can choose from the following actions:

Allow

Block

Continue

Override

Alert

The downside with block (like when blocking the category web-advertisements) is that the content is exchanged into the response page for blocked url filtering.

How should I setup the policy if I want to completely drop all packets that belongs to the category web-advertisments (so that the client wont get anything in return not even the block page) - but at the same time having the block page work for other categories (lets say the spyware-and-malware)?

Hello RPS, currently we cannot get that granular per url filtering category.

You will need to call into support and submit this as an enhancement request.

thank you
