Block a particular Download and also limit the downloading size

I want two thing to be done:-

1)When I try to download a particular file like .iso,.usb,.pdf etc I want webgateway to block it.Means user will be able to open the site but particular download needs to be blocked.

2)When I try to download particular file like .iso,.usb,,it should be able to download only the size specified in the rule after that it should be blocked.User trying to download more than the size mentioned in the rule should be blocked

Please give me example so that I create rules accordingly

Re: Block a particular Download and also limit the downloading size

Hi Haaris,

Using the content security portal for your example is not a good idea because you do not have the SSL scanner enabled (shown in your screenshot here -- ).

See the following thread for any HTTP examples:

Re: Block a particular Download and also limit the downloading size

So it means that only when I download file from http site only then this block rule works & I need to enable ssl scanner to make it work for https also....

What if i want to completely block any file with extension like .iso,.pdf etc which user trying to open or download???

Re: Block a particular Download and also limit the downloading size

Hi Haaris,

If you want to block a certain file extension, MWG still needs to perform SSL scanning if they perform the download over HTTPS.

The content is encrypted so there is no way to tell what kind of file they are downloaded without SSL scanning.

Ok...but if I have enabled SSL Scanner then how can I create the rule for the same....Also If I am using http site then can I use the same rule?
