But Fortigate FG-100E using 6.2.2 is fail to block zenmate proxy, even we configured Inspection Mode in Proxy-based and enable deep inspection on policy, but still can users zenmate and bypass Firewall policy. kindly suggest solution. Thanks Regards, Javed Bashir

Zenmate is listed on the Fortiguard site as a VPN, so trying to block it via classifying it as a web proxy may not work 100%.  Keep in mind that firewall polices (rules) are executed from top-to-bottom, so if you have crafted web filter rules - it should be applied to outgoing web traffic - this rule should be moved up in the firewall rule chain so it can be triggered. 


A google search on blocking zenmate seems to indicated this browser-add-on calls home (e.g.,,, etc.) - you should be able to craft url filters to block those domains. 


Learn to use the FortiView->sources and drill down to a device's indivdual sessions to see what exactly is going on.  If a site is not blocked, drill down into that session and see what the fgt says about what firewall policy is allowing that traffic through.
