Using PA-3220 for URL filtering to replace Barracuda Web Filter

L0 Member

We just got our PA-3220 and hoping to use that for our URL/Web filtering and discontinue our Barracuda Web filter.  Has anyone implemented the URL filtering with terminal server users?

The only thing that really changes is that you would want to install the terminal server agent so that the user-id information actually maps correctly for those users. Outside of that, there isn't anything special about the deployment from that aspect. 


I would recommend that you look into the feature set available on the firewall for url-filtering versus what you are using on the Barracuda web filter. It's been a while since I've actually had to manage one, but if memory serves correctly you could allow time limits for categories, log actual social media posts, and stuff like that. IE: Check to ensure that you don't use any features that aren't available through url-filtering directly on the firewall.
