This example will sho you how to block access to YouTube.com between 8 AM - 3 PM, Mon-Fri. To do this we need to create two rules on the BUC Appliance:

 

Rule 1: Create a SSL Secure Socket Firewall > Restriction

  1. Log into your BUC Router at http://192.168.10.1
  2. Go to Firewall > Restrictions
  3. Create a new rule:
    • Rule Description: block_https
    • Rule Applies To: Only the Following Host
    • Uncheck All Day
    • ​Uncheck Every Day > check appropriate days
    • Uncheck All Network Access
      • Change Application Protocol: Block Only > SSL Secure Socket
      • Add New Rule
    • Save Changes​​​

​​​See example of rule 1.

Rule 2: Block YouTube's domains

  1. Log into your BUC appliance at http://192.168.10.1
  2. Go to Firewall, Restrictions
  3. Under Access Restrictions
    • Rule Description: block_youtube_domain
    • Rule Applies to: Only the Following Host
    • ​Uncheck All Day
      • ​Enter 08:00-15:00 which = 8 am to 3 pm
    • Uncheck Every Day > check appropriate days
    • Uncheck All Network Access
      • Website URL(s): Block Only
        • Domain contains: youtube-ui.l.google.com
          • Add
        • Domain contains: youtube.com
          • Add
        • ​Domain contains: googlevideo.com
          • Add
        • Domain contains: ytimg.com
          • Add
      • Add New Rule
    • Save Changes

Once you have both rules added and saved go to System, then Reboot the router.
