When testing network performance using a 3725 router and AdvSecurity124-3 ios, I observe an approximate 30% loss of bandwidth when using a urlfilter and n2h2 server. I have seen the same results on a 2621 and wonder if there is anything i can do at the router end to minimize my bandwidth loss when using a urlfilter.

Connections to all the URL filter servers are down. If allow mode is set to "on," the router will pass all the HTTP traffic; otherwise it will drop the HTTP traffic and close the TCP connection.The network administrator can possibly check whether the URL filter server (such as those available from WebSense or N2H2) is down and restart it, if required. If the filter server still does not work, the administrator may have to install a URL filter server on another system and configure the same URL filter server on the router.
