    Default Basic Rule pattern to Block

    New to Untangle, coming from Cisco ASA and Palo Alto firewalls and looking for example on how you block url categories via the web filter. I have noticed the documentation isn't the best. Can someone show me some examples on this basic rule making no matter if web/app on untangle?

    Will this block all categories that I have selected in the categories area?

    Far easier is to check the block checkbox in categories.

    I did do that. So does that mean my rule will work for all check categories buy using the rule above minus the web category line?

    There is no reason to use a rule if the checkbox is checked. They are redundant.

    So I still need a "Rule" just not one that has web category in it.

    No rule need. We make it easy, just check boxes.

    Very Strange you dont need a rule at all. What if you want to only block for certain networks in your environment? How does the webfilter know what to do. It just knows that any traffic that passes through it filter the web requests?

    Use Policy manager to make multiple sets of apps and selections then use rules in Policy Manager to manage which traffic is sent to a specific set of filters. It's much easier to manager than rules in every app.
