URL Filtering

Unanswered Question
Mar 3rd, 2007

Hi,

i have configured URL filtering in my cisco 1751, it works fine, i mean what ever domain name i mention it blocks, thus users cannot access the site.eg. .yahoo.com, now i am also looking for a config where it should support .yahoo.com/photos, but i get error message "% Not a valid domain..." the reason why i wanted the is jus to deny only the photos site in yahoo & not the entire yahoo domain, can any one help me in this scenario?

Router(config)#ip urlfilter exclusive-domain deny .yahoo.com ---- this command is accepting

Router(config)#ip urlfilter exclusive-domain deny .yahoo.com/photos

% Not a valid domain... ----- i get error message.

also wanted to know that whether i denfine only if i receive the request from a particular IP it can deny the site. at present being this as a gateway router, it blockz the site for my entire network, my requirement is to block only for specific IP address on my LAN.

I have this problem too.

In the configuration guide for URLFILTER feature, Cisco always mention DOMAIN NAMES, not URLs or file names.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/customer/products/ps6643/products_white_paper0900aecd804abb11.shtml

So, most likely it works with whole domains and does not allow to filter based on PATH within URL.

Good luck,

Mike

Thanks Mike,infact i also thought the same in which i came to know that the domain names are resolved in to ip address & the local router maintains the ip urfilter cache, with that only i came to that it looks only the domain name & not the path or file name.
