I have several Junipers exhibiting the same I am assuming I'm configuring something wrong. This is the case:

Model: SSG5

OS: 5.4.0r1.0

Integrated url filtering


URL filtering is functioning normally, I have a custom profile configured ("URL_Policy" ), and a custom category (named "allow_list" ) which is configured within "URL_Policy" as the White List. However the page still gets blocked according to the Web-Based Email categroy being blocked. Any ideas?

First of all, I would definitely upgrade your SSG. 5.4.0r1 was the very first release for the 5.4 branch (released July 2006) and there were some reported issues with regards to URL filtering. The current release is 5.4.0r10 and has a great deal of fixes.


After upgrade, then let us know if you still have issues.

Thank you rkim, I updated the ScreenOS to 6.0.0r5 and the white list now functions as expected.

Hello rkim:

I have a SSG140 with firmware v.5.4.0r8.0 and I am experiencing the same problem... that is a long list of allowed URLs that are still being blocked.

Any ideas on how to correct?

I am having the same issues getting the white listing to work.


If I use the same custom list I created and black list it, the browser will shows the black list that blocked it.  However if I add it to the white list, it denies the URL stating that it falls under one of the default categories.


It acts as if the list did not exist.  I have tried modifying the firewall through NSM as well as the web gui with the same results.


Current Firmware Version: 6.0.0r5a.0
