Hi,

is this possible for the firewall to block traffic by categories such as "porn" or "social media" BUT allow certain sites?

For example I want to block all file sharing sites. But I want to allow my company dropbox. So how do I do it?

Thanks.

    Hi @businessuer

    For Dropbox example, you can enable Personal Network Storage category in managed category in
    your Content Filter profile first.

    And go to custom service page to add Server URL into Trusted Web Sites. Of course you can use wildcard to configure custom URL.
    The Trusted/Forbidden Web Site scanning priority is higher then category service.

    After configured profile, you can apply the profile into Policy Control rule. Then it will allow Dropbox for your Intranet and block others. If there is undefined URL, you still can add URL into Trusted/Forbidden Web Site.

    Hi,

    I am actually referring to configuration using the NCC portal.
