MCafee blocking website https://64.100.10.35

Jump to solution


Hi everyone,

I am trying to access Cisco url by IP address and it is being blocked by web gateway.

Problem is i can only access this by IP address and nslooup for this IP does not work.

IT says hostname is an IP address which is not categorized by our filtering software.

When i do rule tracing it says

Block uncatergorized IP urls.

Need to know how can i access this website ?

Regards

Mike

Hello,

MWG does not have an "Allow Traffic" option. MWG basically allows everything that is not explicitly blocked. If access to the IP is blocked there is a rule that is responsible for this behaviour.

You can find that rule and either correct its criteria like I described above or you add another rule on top that  calls a "Stop Rule Set" action for this URL.Destination.IP to prevent the block action from being executed. As an alternative you can add an entry to a "Global Allow List", e.g. you place it on the beginning of your policy and call a "Stop Cycle" action which will prevent all other rules from being executed.

In this article there are many examples how to "allow" specific sites:

You have a rule in your policy that block access to uncategorized IP addresses. With rule engine tracong you already found the rule... now you can either disable the rule which will globally allow access to uncategorized IP addresses or you modify the rules criteria and add a criteria like URL.Destination.IP does not equal 64.100.10.35, so it will only match if you access IP addresses which are different from the one you want to access.

Best,

Andre

Hi Andre,

I need to allow access to this single IP only.

Under rules where i can do this?

Can i do like this url.destination IP does equal  64.100 then allow traffic is not do not allow traffic?
