Web filter Issue

Hello All,

We have made a new Policy "Restricted" and blocked "Bandwidth Consuming" and its sub-categories in Web filter. But there are websites which are in its sub-categories aren't blocking. Users can easily access those blocked websites. We have put "blocked rules" policy in the end of ipv4-policy. I have attached screenshots as well. I even blocked it from DNS filter but its still not blocking it.

Hi,

Is the policy in flow or proxy mode ? Also, do you have any SSL Inspection enabled on the rule in question?

The policy is in flow mode and yes SSL inspection is enabled on the rule.

Try changing that to proxy mode and see if the web filter does it's work.

Not working, same result ... :\

See this article and also, rules that restrict/filters certain/specific traffic should be placed at the top of the policy table to make sure they do have/take effect and are not overridden by a rule/filter above it which permits the traffic that should be blocked.
