Allow URL access for a specific time for a specific user.

Jump to solution

Hi Guys,

I need to allow a URL (Facebook.com) for a specific time period only (30 days).

After that URL access should automatically blocked.

How can i achieve that in McAfee WG Url filter.

Please help...

Thanks in Advance.

Hi Shameera,

For your main inquiry, yes this is indeed configurable.

If you have the rule already configured and you still don't get your desired result, you might need to check the rule tracing to find the reason.

I have created a working sample rule which blocks the access to any search engines for the months of July to December.

You may try to change the value of the month to make sure your rule works. Adjust it to 8 and your access to google should be allowed by MWG.

Make a test rule first to familiarize yourself on the rule maneuvering.

Regards,

Philip
