Hi, King_lau.

 

You can try manually override this domain from your Web Filter Profile.

 

Check this doc:https://docs.fortinet.com/document/fortigate/6.4.2/administration-guide/122974/web-rating-override

Mauro.

Do you already have a fortigate gambling web filter installed?

When creating a webfilter and blocking gambling, you can also add the website/domain in question to the URL filter at the bottom and set action allow/exempt; the URL filter within a webfilter profile takes precedence over the broader categories, no need to manually override the webfilter category for the website

One way to exclude HKJC website from fortigate gambling web filter is to add it to the whitelist, which allows access to specific websites that are blocked by the filter.

You can refer below document for configuring the static URL filter.

You can add the entry as a Simple/Regular/Wildcard with the action Exempt in order to override the blocked category.
