Facebook videos blocking problem

hi we had Fortigate 100D and after upgrade from 5.2 to 5.6.8

application control didn't block facebook videos

i enabled deep inspection

i installed ssl certificate on browsers chrome and firefox

it blocks only when i blocked facebook subs on application control " application overrides "

when i enabled any sub like " Facebook_post"

videos worked again

and i traced from fortigate CLI and check forward logs it read policy id right

is it application control bug ?

please check upload file it might be help

Hi Mohamed.


Have you followed the upgrade path when going from 5.2 to 5.6.8?  Things tend to break if you don't.  From what I can tell, the upgrade path is 5.2.9-> 5.4.4-> 5.6.2-> 5.6.6-> 5.6.8.


As for the app control - entries added here will follow the top-to-down order.  Try placing the facebook video block near the top of the list with facebook post below it.
