Hi all.


I have just purchased the web filtering license and I wish to block facebook in my office.


I have followed the instructions from and also tried to get the web filtering work in SSG5. I have did the following steps in the Web GUI:

Go to  security > web filtering > protocol, I selected Integrated (SurfControl) and checked Enable Web Filtering via CPA Server

Next, I went to Categories > Custom and add

Then, I went to Policy > Policies > Edit and checked web filtering and selected the custom filter that I have made but facebook is still not blocked. 


Am I getting correct setup? Did I miss out anything?
