    Default Port Forward being caught by Web Filter

    I have a UT installation that for some reason is capturing and blocking inbound HTTP traffic due to Web Filter. It's a simple SBS 2008 box with all the usual SBS ports being NAT'd to it. If you go to http://mail.hostname.com it is blocked by Web Filter.. this is from the outside... any ideas why?

    Web Filter filters whatever web traffic goes through it.

    If you don't want it filtered you can add a bypass rule or policy manager rule.
    Or you can just add a pass rule in the web filter.

    Yes this is working as intended. The only rack module that is directional is the Spam Blocker. Everything else works on traffic flow, not direction.

    So what I'm trying to say is, any TCP 80 traffic is going to get filtered unless you tell Untangle not to filter it. This is done wither with a bypass rule, or a policy that pushes the appropriate traffic into another rack.

    Is there a "lookup" tool with UT that you can put a site in and see if its listed in any of the categories?

    There is, but you really should bypass the traffic. You really really really don't want a local web server subject to Untangle filtration. The AV module + a decent amount of traffic will nuke your CPU and flatten your Untangle.

    And I can't find the premium filter's page... the free one is a link at the top of this forum. Click submit URL.
