Group policy with Layer7 FW rules not working

Hi all,

 

Want to ask for help. So I configured a group policy with certain Layer7 FW rules (denying social media sites, videos and music, p2p, etc). I applied the group policy to my unit (both wireless and wired) to test.

 

However, I can still access sites such as Youtube, Facebook, Netflix, Twitter, etc., which are all under the categories I am trying to deny.

 

Did I miss something?

Only way to deny those sites above is if I include the categories on Content Filtering (blocking social networking, streaming medias, etc). But if exclude those, I can access Facebook, Youtube etc.

As far as I know, yes. When a user is whitelisted, it basically override any rules (Firewall, content filtering, traffic shaping, etc).
