RE: WEBSENSE IP Allowance on PIX515

I have a websense server on the network and I wanted to know if anyone knows the commande to allow a specific IP to bypass the server?

This is what I have on my PIX now.

url-server (inside) vendor websense host 10.x.x.x timeout 5 protocol TCP

Thanks in advance!

Re: RE: WEBSENSE IP Allowance on PIX515

Websense implementations use both the "url-server" command AND the "filter" command. The former defines the server to send the requests to, the latter defines which local and/or remote IP addresses are subject to the filtering.

The command ref is here:

You will probably already have a command of the type:

filter url 80 0 0 0 0

so use the "except" option and enter another command to exclude one particular source (local) address from being checked. You'll end up with something like:

filter url 80 0 0 0 0

filter url except 0 0

which will exclude from being checked.
