Can IOS Firewall do URL logging?

Unanswered Question
May 9th, 2008

I know on my PIX and ASA boxes, I can log URLs that are being accessed just by turning on logging for level "info".

Can you do the same with the IOS firewall?

"ip inspect name TEST http audit-trail on"

Doesn't do it, nor does the "alarm on" option.

I have this problem too.

The Firewall Websense Url Filtering feature enables your Cisco IOS firewall (also known as Cisco Secure Integrated Software [CSIS]) to interact with the Websense URL filtering software, thereby allowing you to prevent users from accessing specified websites on the basis of some policy. The Cisco IOS firewall works with the Websense server to know whether a particular URL should be allowed or denied (blocked).

Cisco IOS Security Configuration Guide, Release 12.4 for Firewall Websense URL Filtering is present in the url below:

That isn't a useful reply. I wanted to know if there is a setting that I can enable so that I can see URLs in the log of an IOS router like I can on a PIX or ASA firewall.
