How to Block SSL (HTTPS) enabled websites using RV110W Wireless-N VPN Firewall

Hi,

I have purchased RV110W Wireless-N VPN Firewall.

I'm unable to block SSL (HTTPS) enabled websites using RV110W Wireless-N VPN Firewall.

Example: https://www.facebook.com

Please help me in resolving this issue.

Hello Cristian!

Thanks for your help. 

I tried all the steps and unfortunately, I'm still unable to block HTTPS websites. Please assist me in resolving this issue.

I am sorry, it appears the HTTP/HTTPS option is for access to the Firewall. You should be able to block all HTTPS traffic using an Access Rule. 

This can be found at Firewall > Access Rules.

You can then add a rule that Denies all traffic from HTTPS. Let me know if you have any questions. 

Hello Cristian!

Thanks for your continuous support. 

Under Firewall > Access Rules, we can create different "Access Rules".

However, we have only one option (Default Outbound Policy - "Allow / Deny") for all the "Rules".

If we select "Deny", then we be unable to use the internet as none of the websites will open. Example even "http://www.cisco.com/" will not open.

I have attached two screenshots. Please find the attached screenshots and help me in blocking HTTPS websites. 

Regards,

Tanzeem

I'm sorry, could you explain what you mean by having only one option (Default Outbound Policy - "Allow / Deny")?


I was able to successfully block HTTPS traffic with a rule that contained:

  • Action: Always block
  • Services: HTTPS

Hello Cristian!

Thanks for your continuous support. 

Sorry for any confusion in the above response. Even I was able to block all the HTTPS websites, including https://www.google.com. 
 
However, my main motive is to block https://www.facebook.com and not https://www.google.com.
 

Using "Internet Access Policy" and the keyword "facebook.com" as well as the URL "https://www.facebook.com", I'm unable to block facebook.com.

However, using "Internet Access Policy", I'm able to block the websites that are not SSL enabled, example www.msn.com.  

Please assist me in blocking the HTTPS websites of my choice ex: "https://www.facebook.com".

Regards,

Tanzeem
