im talking about the following,


In general i just want to know how should a URL be added to these fields. I have tried a number of combination but it doesnt seem to work. it would be good if i can bypass some rules depending on a site. i.e. if they traffic is going to that site then a specific rule will be not applied to that site etc.




Re: Adding URL as Exception In a DLP Rule

From the screenshot I noticed that you have an AND condition:

1. Keyword AND 2. URL is not a certain link

Did you try using just the URL as a condition?

I am not a NDLP expert, if my suggestion did not work I would defer this question to an expert or call McAfee support.

It's now 2018, and I only recently came across this problem. Has anyone figured this out already? Same question as previous, is there a post with the answer for this?
