We are using a USG FLEX 500 and we want to set up a white list based URL filtering on specific client IPs. For example this is my white list:

*.tello.com
*.att.com
*.verizon.com

How can I configure the firewall so that only these addresses can be accessed from behind the IP address 192.168.0.50.

Thank you!

    Hi @nubira ,

    Please create a Web Content filter profile , Block all managed web pages.

    Navigate to Custom Service and allow those web sites only.

    Create a rule for source:192.168.0.50 . (Please remember block UDP 443 port to make HTTPS sites can be identified.)

    Last, please also remind that when connectiong to a website, there may be many Hyperlinks behind it, so it may cause the Trust site to display incompletely when you have above settings.

    Thank you

    You need to add *verizon.com

    *tello.com

    *att.com

    You will have to watch the logs under Monitor>Logs>Category>Blocked Websites to see what else is being blocked. Like he said, there may be many other domains that have to be allowed for the site to work.

    Hi @Zyxel_Kevin

    it works! Thanks!
    The solution is change *.verzion.com to *.*verzion.com.

    Just one more question: how can I translate the whole Access Restricted page? System\Notification\Response Message not contain the full text of message.

    Thanks
