    Default Blocking sites that belong to certain categories

    I want to be able to block a site that is flagged. I no longer see the BLOCK action in this new Web Monitor. I used to have it in Web filter lite, but since that was ripped out from underneath me, I need a solution to block flagged sites.

    HELP!

    Web Monitor only flags. Blocking requires Web Filter.

    And the old Web Filter Lite could only block http traffic, something that we basically don't use anymore... so you weren't blocking there anymore either.

    I was successfully blocking what I needed to with Web Filter Lite. I can't believe this feature was taken away. Does web filter still allow free versions or is this a way of milking the customers for more money?

    No free versions, Web Filter is licensed only. Whether it is 'milking customers' is all a matter of perspective. In the end only you can make that subjective quality judgement.

    How many sites did you have blocked?

    It might be worth getting the local DNS server to do the job.
