I have gone through the initial setup of my new 800C. Can't seem to understand the way this device uses security policies. For starters, I want to use a web filter to block all websites to the default user profile. The options inside the web filter are proxy, flow-based, and dns. I have read that proxy based is the most secure. Do I need to setup an explicit proxy for this to work? I have so many other questions but support tells me they won't help unless there is a problem.
Part of my issue was the latest update 5.2.2. I created a ticket and an engineer had me downgrade to 5.2.1. This resolved my issue. To begin with my issue was that I could not apply a web filter in proxy mode. It would not work at all.
