Test WebBlocker Actions

The WebBlocker Activation Wizard creates a WebBlocker action that you can apply to an HTTP or HTTPS proxy action. Before you enable a WebBlocker action, you can test the action to confirm whether WebBlocker will allow or block a URL.

To test a WebBlocker action:

  1. In Fireware Web UI, select Subscription Services > WebBlocker.
