    Default Trying to block certain files types from being downloaded.

    I'm trying to configure web filter to block certain file types from being downloaded and I've created rules for the file type but with no success.

    These are the rules I've tried so far:
    HTTP: Response File Extension => epub
    Web Filter: Response File Extension => epub
    HTTP: Request File Extension => epub
    HTTP: Content Type => application/epub+zip
    Web Filter: Content Type => application/epub+zip

    Any feedback on how to properly configure the rules is really appreciated.

    Most likely the downloads are via HTTPS, which will make all but the domain name encrypted.

    Oh that was it, the SSL Inspector by default does not inspect all traffic so it wasn't seeing the extension. Once I set the Inspect All Traffic rule high enough in SSL Inspection the web filter rules trigger.

    Thanks again.
