About the block domain mechanism of Sense

Arsjupiter Posts: 5 Explorer

Hi Sense Team !

as i have check, for example domain A, Sense detects it is the malware domain and block A domain through http already. but i still can ping or nsloookup domain, telnet to A is normal.


so my question is why Sense only block http connection, and pass other connection method like ping or telnet.


thank you !

    Hi Arsjupiter,


    Apologies for the late response to your post.


    Sense also blocks domains via other protocols apart from http.


    We made further tests with current production firmware p- with Browsing Protection enabled to confirm that ping, nslookup and telnet through SENSE does not reach a site that is categorized as malicious.

    If you still have this issue, please get in touch with our support team here via chat/phone as we might need to further troubleshoot on this issue.
