Blocking some website with time range

Dear All,

 

I recently purchased MX68W-HW with LIC-MX68CW-SEC-3YR.

This security device connected and I can control / manage over the cloud.

Kindly I am asking how I can block some website like YouTube, Facebook, Netflix, etc... with time range.

For example, block those websites in working hours (i.e from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM) and allow access to those website during lunch time (i.e 1:01 PM to 1:59 PM) and then again block them from 2:00 PM to 5:30 PM.

In summary, I want to block some websites during working hours and allow access to those website during brake, lunch and hours after work.

 

Your assistant is highly appreciated.

Thank you

Re: Blocking some website with time range

Hi @mugrene,

 

To do this you will need to apply the content filtering rules through a Group Policy.

I would think the best way is to create your GP with the schedule and content rules you want, and then apply it to the VLAN you want to enforce those rules on.

Re: Blocking some website with time range

Hello @mugrenel,

 

At this time, the content filtering section is applied to all the clients passing traffic through the MX. It does not have a configuration way to differentiate or schedule the filtering. 

 

However, it can be achieved using group policies ad mentioned previously. The change will be adding all the configuration you want to the group policy and override the default content filtering, or appending the previous default config with the new categories you would like to block. 

 

Regarding the scheduling, the group policies allow you to set the time when the group policy will be implemented. Selecting the time and assigning that group policy to your VLAN, it will make lunch and breaks better for the users.

Hello @mugrene , 

If you are using default VLAN, then you should go to the clients you would like to use that group policy on and assign the group policy, you can do that in the client list and clicking on the client. Ensure that the group policy is either appending or overriding what you have in the default section, whatever is preferred for you. 

 

Let me know if that helps.
