    You will need to enter the site name. So, to block http://google.com then you will enter google.com in the web filter.

    You can block by IP in the firewall.

    Welcome to the forums.

    Not sure if my question it the same or if I am misreading the OP.

    Scanning the last few daily posts I have found that some of my Cherubs (Cherubs = high school students with ambitions to get around untangle) seem to have discovered that they can (if they can find it) enter the IP address of a blocked site and get to the site that way.

    Is there a way (I know it can be done in Dan's Guardian) to tell untangle to block/reject numeric IP URL's.

    Thanks.

    if your students have access to the command prompt on your computers, they can ping the offending sites, and get their IP address.

    The only way I've seen to get around the address/ip issue is to block the IPs manually..

    sucks

    Unhappy

    Unfortunately, the main reason I have had to install the Untangle box is to filter students' personal laptops (and PDAs, iPod Touches, etc.) as I had no way to force them through a proxy on their personally owned machines. Fortunately, very few seem to have the savvy to use command line.

    Maybe this should be a feature request. As I said, in Dan's Guardian, which I use for my wired, managed machines, there is a simple setting that basically says, "if a client requests a site by IP, BLOCK it"

    Bug 3580 has already been filed on this. No commitment yet on when it will be incorporated.
