How to blacklist a website.

 

      

 

There are two places you can block access to a website:

  1. From your My Account page at www.buctools.com, via the Web Filter Settings.
    • NOTE: websites blacklisted here are blocked for everyone.
  2. From your BUC appliance at http://192.168.10.1, via Firewall / Restrictions.
    • NOTE: websites should only be blacklisted here when using device specific Firewall / Restrictions.

General Rule: Always blacklist a website using option # 1 unless you are creating device specific Firewall / Restrictions.

The wildcard character can only be used as the first character and only when immediately followed by a period(.) and a host name.
