Use WebBlocker Actions in Proxy Definitions

You can select the WebBlocker action used by each policy from the WebBlocker configuration or when you edit the proxy action.

In Policy Manager, in the WebBlocker Actions dialog box Actions tab, the In Use column shows whether each WebBlocker action is assigned to a proxy action.

Assign WebBlocker Actions to Proxy Actions

For two examples of how to use WebBlocker actions with policies, see:

Schedule WebBlocker Actions

You can set an operating schedule for the policy. You can use the predefined settings in the drop-down list or create custom schedules. These time periods set rules for when to deny different websites. For example, you can deny sports websites during usual business hours of operation, but allow users to browse at lunch time, evenings, and weekends.

For more information, see Create Schedules for Firebox Actions.

To set a schedule for a policy, in Policy Manager:

  1. Open the policy to edit it, and select the Advanced tab.
  2. From the Schedule drop-down list, select a schedule.
    Or to create a new schedule, click the New/Clone icon and configure the schedule.
  3. Click OK.
  4. Configure an HTTP policy that uses the schedule.

To set a schedule for a policy, in Fireware Web UI:

  1. Open the policy to edit it, and select the Scheduling tab.
  2. From the Schedule Action drop-down list, select a schedule.
    Or, to create a new schedule, select Create New and configure the schedule.
  3. Click Save.
  4. Configure an HTTP policy that uses the schedule.

You can also configure two HTTP or HTTPS policies, but create a schedule for only one of them. Each policy uses one of the proxy actions. Each of these proxy actions points to one of at least two WebBlocker actions.
