Re: Blocking of Website

Hi,

Client Security does not have the ability to block certain URLs.

All you could do is to get a list of ALL IPs that Facebook is using and deny http(s) to those IPs.

 

But I think that this list is a matter of constant change!

 

If you are in a company, then create a filter rule on your http proxy. That is more efficent and prooven to work!

 

BTW what size is you Company?

Re: Blocking of Website

If you are in a small company, you might try to add two lines to the file

 

c:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

 

127.0.0.1 www.facebook.com

127.0.0.1 facebook.com

 

Not working 100%, but annoying enough for your users. Smiley Wink

 

Or "Netnanny"

Re: Blocking of Website

Sir, you are saying that Fsecure does not have the ability to block certain URLs but what is the purpose of Internet Shield on the console?

Re: Blocking of Website

And also in F-secure anti-spyware ---> settings --->browser control ---> all browsers ---> block and allowed sites.

What is the purpose of that?

 

Thank you sir.

Re: Blocking of Website

1) Internet Shield is F-Secure's local firewall. So if you want to block certain sites you need to do that on IP/port basis.

 

2) select ".../ Browser Control" and read from the help: "...these settings are not used by Anti-Spyware 6.40 and later"

BC used to be a popup blocker before Internet Explorer and Firefox had their own implemented. With the above settings you were able to allow and deny popups.

 

If you want a working URL-Filter with F-Secure you can use Internet Security (for just a few (approx. 5) Systems. Activate Parental control.

 

BTW: @F-Secure we have regular requests esp. from smaller companies for Parental Control in the corporate products (but give it a different name ;-) )
