URL Filtering block websites?

I have a URL filter profile with a list of URLs set to block (under Objects  Security Profiles > URL Filtering), which is applied to security group profile. 

However none of the URLs are being blocked. 

Is there something I should check to confirm this is setup right?

Hi @BeKindPleaseRewind,

 

Have you configured your profile in an actual security policy rule ? If not, it won't do anything ;)

 

Cheers !

Apparently there's something called a Commit button you have to click after making changes.

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

Please take a source IP address and check which policy it takes while going to the internet.

 

It seems traffic is passing through different policy which could be above Web-Filtering policy.

 

If above condition is true then change the priority of Web-filitering policy (place it above than any other internet policy)
