Possible to both block and upload files to WF in same file blocking profile ?

Hi,

I have a lot of traffic that are blocked by company policy saying NO to downloaded .exe and dll.

At the same point it would be very useful to scan and test the blocked files.

Wil this be possible by making a profile like this:

Or is it another way of doing this.

I have tried this with the following config where the for the exe,zip files I have set the action to be both block and continue forward in the same profile.

Now when I tried to download exe, it seems like the exe files are getting blocked but nothing gets forwarded to the wildfire.

Once workaround that you can try is you can set the action to the "continue and forward" this way the files will be forwarded to the wildfire and user will be given a continue page. Now instead of giving the users "file-blocking continue page" present them with a file-blocking page. This can be done by exporting the file-blocking page and re importing it into the the "file-blocking continue page " (objects-->response pages).

Again its just a workaround.

Has anyone come up with a good solution for this?  The work around would work, just wondering if anyone else came up with something.

I've filed a feature request for thisa while ago. The workaround should work, but i'd rather have the box DL the file, send it to Wildfire and delete it (not sending it to the user), if necessary.
