Ironport - Specific URL redirect without catching all domain traffic

Hi we have a set up using Cisco Ironport S370 running Async OS 7.5

We would like to redirect users requests for some very specific top level domains such as www.bbc.co.uk

however we do not want to redirect urls such as www.bbc.co.uk/news

Is this possible? using our current set up?  at present everything we have tried catches all traffic under the main domain so that www.bbc.co.uk/news or www.bbc.co.uk/sport are also being redirected.

Thanks in advance for your help/suggestions.

Hi,

I'm trying to think of an elegant way, but what you could do is, create two custom URL categories.

1st Custom Category:

www\.bbc\.co\.uk/news

www\.bbc\.co\.uk/sport

Create an identity based on this custom category and make sure the access policy allows it.

2nd Custom Category:

www\.bbc\.co\.uk

And apply a redirect on this.

I've tested this and it's working for me.

Thanks

Hi Chris thanks for responding much appreciated.

I am working on this project a little third hand and so can not test directly here.

For the first custom category would it be possible to use a wildcard in the expression without this wiping out the 2nd custom category?

I dont think it would be workable if we had to maintain a list of all the urls used by the sites we want to perform this on.

So the first category would be allow

www\.bbc\.co\.uk/*

and the second custom category would be redirect

www\.bbc\.co\.uk

Thanks and regards,

Paul

Hi Paul,

You can't end your regex with a * so this should work:

www\.bbc\.co\.uk/+[a-z]

If you have numerical after I think it would be:

www\.bbc\.co\.uk/+[a-z]|[0-9]

Thanks

Chris

Edit:  Tested the first regex without the pipe and it is fine.
