Custom List

You can customize your URL list to include Allowed Domains and Forbidden Domains. By customizing your URL list, you can include specific domains allowed (assessed) or forbidden (blocked), and include specific keywords to block sites.

Allowed and Forbidden Domains

Select the Enable Allowed/Forbidden Domains check box to activate this feature.

Alert! Do not include the prefix “http://” in either the Allowed Domains or Forbidden Domains fields. All subdomains are affected. For example, entering “yahoo.com” applies to “mail.yahoo.com” and “my.yahoo.com”.

Disable all web traffic except for Allowed Domains - When selected, SonicWALL CFS only allows Web access to sites on the Allowed Domains list. With careful screening, this can be nearly 100% effective at blocking pornography and other objectionable material.

Keyword Blocking

Tip! Customized domains and keywords do not have to be reentered when the SonicWALL CFS is updated each week and do not require a URL list subscription.

Consent

The Consent tab allows you to enforce content filtering on designated computers and provide optional filtering on other computers. Consent can be configured to require the user to agree to the terms outlined in an Acceptable Use Policy window before Web browsing is allowed.

Web Usage Consent

To enable the Consent properties, select Require Consent.
