I have an SR520 that is using Trend Micro Content Filtering and I got an unusual request from a client. Is it possible to have Trend Micro only filter websites during business hours. I have looked through a lot of documentation regarding the SR520 and Trend Micro but I haven't seen anything about this.
Any help is much appreciated.
Hmmm, you can use time based ACLs to match traffic that will be filtered. The rest of the time the ACL will not be matched and thus the traffic will not be hitting the Trend policy.
For example look at https://supportforums.cisco.com/docs/DOC-8028#_Filtered_Hosts_ClassMap_
class-map type inspect match-all filtered-hosts
match protocol http
match access-group 123
access-list 123 is the one that matches the hosts to be filtered according to the Trend policy. If that ACL matches based on time (time based ACL) then you can filter these hosts only during the time the ACL says.
I haven't tested it but it should work.
Please let us know if it solved the issue for future reference.
I hope it helps.
