    Default Some sites are blocked some are not

    One of the categories I have selected in my web filter is "Pornography".

    I'm cautiously trying to test my firewall and configuration to see that it's working properly.

    One of our network guys at work said one site I could certainly test with is playboy dot com. He said the way the site is designed it has a banner page with a question about your age.

    That site is blocked as expected.

    Unfortunately, porn hub dot com (no spaces but I'm trying not to cause issues when trying to get an answer to my question) is not blocked.

    I do not understand this behavior and I do not understand how to correct it. The single "Pornography" category should cover all of that as far as I can tell.

    I checked "Reports" and found my first test for playboy dot com was blocked, however, there is no evidence of attempting to go to the 2nd test site.

    Many of the entries for the device I am using have a column that says "No rule applied".

    Do I have something wrong in the configuration?

    Thanks in advance

    Sounds to me like the 2nd test happened on a different machine that wasn't going through Untangle.

    I'm testing on the same machine and these tests were run approximately 1 or 2 minutes apart.

    Go into application control and select each site individually to block and tag. I noticed the same thing but it is now blocked. The only other bug is that it won’t block a search. Say you type “naked on the beach”. It will display nudity and some pornography in the images and video. Trying to see how to stop that.

    For that, you must use ssl inspector and safe search
    I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen

    I blocked the Porn category and tested many sites, could not replicate your problem

    Was testing done with Chrome?
