How to block website using HIPS 7.0.5.

Jump to solution

Hi all,

I was wondering if there was a way within ePO that either using the FW or HIPS, can I block a user's workstation from accessing a certain website?

I'm currently running ePO 4.5.5 (Build 1188) with HIPS 7.0.5 and Firewall 7.0.5.

If anyone has any guidance on this, I'd greatly appreciate it!

Thanks to all, and have a great day!

Create a firewall rule, rule type: Domain, at the top and enter the domain name like *google.com

This will cause the firewall to drop any dns requests to that domain, effectively blocking it.

Thank you redbeardrc!!!

That is exactly what I needed to know and you showed me where to correctly insert a domain blocking entry within the ePO FW.

Thanks so much again!

Sorry for reviving an old thread, but I'm looking to do the same thing except using ENS Firewall. Have played with couple of options but isn't quite producing the same result. Irrespective of browser or protocol, I simply want to block certain domains. Thanks.

Edit the "DNS Blocking" rules in the ENS Firewall Options policy.

Kary, Thanks. I was able to block using FW FQDN rule also. It doesn't work when browser proxy is configured though. Other executable that do not use proxy are blocked.

telnet www.google.com 443
