Hello Anthony,

 

On RV34x series the content filtering is based on Linux local filtering and doesn’t support HTTPS. In order to filter HTTPS, you need the RV security license (https://community.cisco.com/t5/small-business-technical/cisco-rv340-series-security-license-ls-rv34x-sec-1yr/ta-p/3850789) which enables web filtering. Youtube is categorized as Streaming Media. You can look up the category on GUI (attached).

Martin

Hi Martin,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

I am just a home user. I don’t expect to spend extra money on Licensing for a simple feature.

The reason why I have bought RV-345 but not the other Brand is because I trust Cisco can give me the best user experience.

I think I need to do more research before I buy any other product from Cisco.
