URL with port

L0 Member


Wondering if someone can help me out. I've done some searching and have not come up with with much


I have a user who needs to access a few webpages on a custom port. The link for example is something like: https://custom1.config.fake:2546/info but there are a few more like https://custom2.config.fake:2546/info , and https://custom3.config.fake:2546/info . To make matters worse, they change can change the prefix at any time, and have a new public IP, so in a months or so https://custom4.config.fake:2546/info might go live and be required to be open which would be coming from a different public IP.


What is the best way to allow and internal user at a specific IP to access these websites on the internet which have the port in the link and changing prefixes?


Thank you kindly

It's messy, but if you don't know a range of ports that these websites will confine themselves to, your best bet may be to create a policy that allows web browsing for this user and SSL, but set the service to any versus specifying "application default" or creating a service group.  You could then create a url filtering custom category with the sites you want to allow, using wildcards as needed.

Thank you for the response.
As of right now the port stays the same, it's the prefix in the URL that
will change.

So would I then create a rule from source IP, to destination Internet with
any IP, set the SSL application and specify the port, then apply a URL
category with the wildcard URL *.config.fake?

Yes! A custom url filter on the wildcard url for each site should do the
