How to block Facebook.com but allow Facebook.com/xyz

Hello All!

I need some help to do the following rule:

I have a blocklist that includes "Social Networking", and then, www.facebook.com is blocked. Ok, that is working fine!

This rule is inside Global Blocklist:

But i need to allow an specifc Facebook Page, that is www.facebook.com/xyz (where xyz is a customer webpage).

I´ve tried to insert a rule inside "Global Whitelist" with "URL.Path matches /xyz" or " URL.Host equals www.facebook.com AND URL.Path matches /xyz", and some other options, always with "STOP CYCLE", but none of them worked. I always get blocked by "Global Blocklist" (The last Rule Set).

Wich is the right way to do this?

Thanks,

Evandro.

Hi Evandro,

I needed to do the same thing and I found this discussion: https://community.mcafee.com/message/242484#242484 which helped develop my rule. Take a look and see if this can point you in the right direction.

Thanks,

JS

Hello jsuboh!

I tried the post you found (https://community.mcafee.com/message/242484#242484) but it didnt work :/

I dont know if because we have a few differences: i´m using MWG 7.3.2.2.0 (Build 15726) and now Facebook is HTTPS and the post is about HTTP. Anyway i tried both (HTTP and HTTPS)

Thanks a lot!

Hi Jon! Hope you´re fine...

I tried with this DOC too, but didn´t work :/

The very strange point is: it works for other HTTPS sites, but not Facebook.
