Pinned topic CPM - Web Reputation Whitelist Blacklist

‏2009-09-21T16:26:08Z |
Hello,
Are there wildcards (* or /) that can be used when creating the whitelist/blacklist? The documentation states creating the URL as with plain www.site.com. However, does that ignore everything before and after the parent url?

Example (does http://www.site.com in the list cover.....)

something.site.com
site.com/mysite/something

I have a website that is not getting blocked by web reputation is affecting. Whitelisting the site has not worked - but not sure if wildcards are necessary and what exactly they might be.

I have tried (has not helped):

*.site.com
and
site.com/*

Thanks!

Mike

    The wildcard would sure make life alot easier trying to block social sites like myspace. I know I have personally entered around 50 myspace site variants. Of course I know we can list it that way in the HOSTS file but not really as easy as the CPM would make it.

    Maybe some bright person could make a small but incredible patch for this.

    PS All who use the whitelist/blacklist we need to hammer out a site where we can do a mass import of all the bad sites.

    Hey Mike,

    I believe that you can in fact use wildcards, but they must be presented to the system in a particular way:

    Use wild card as suffix to whitelist sub-directories. For example,
    “http://www.example.com/*”

    • Use wild card to whitelist sub-domains. For example,
    “http://*.example.com/”

    Note that you must prefix each URL with "http://"

    Hi Aram,
    Thank you for the reply.
    I did some initial testing with the same wild cards - and didn't have much luck. I will give it another shot though. I ended up putting the direct http://site1.example.com and that resolved my issue. Thanks!

    Most of the TEM solutions are independent of the underlying platform (8.2).
    The most recent CPM should be version 10.5.
    In my console, this is where I find the dashboard to specify the black list.

    • Endpoint Protection domain
    • Core Protection Module folder
    • Web Reputation Blocked-Approved List Wizard dashboard

    Hi,

    I created Blocked/Approved template. I am able to block the URLs in Mozilla Firefox (HTTP and HTTPS),also able to block HTTP in both Google Chrome and IE .

    But I am unable to block HTTPS sites in Google chrome and IE.

    Also tried enabling the required extensions(TmIEPlugInBHO Class) in IE. 

    I didn't find any extensions for  Google Chrome.

     

    I appreciate your help in this regards

    Thanks
