Posted on 2007-07-30

I have a watchguard X750e running Fireware 8.3 and using FSM 8.3.1

I'm trying to setup the web blocker utility to block users based on user athentication.  I have set up the watch guard to use active directory for authentication

Has anyone ever set this up this way? Do you have any Tips or Advice?

    Accepted Solution

    Configure the HTTP rule/service (policy Tab) as below [assumption you are using WSM/WFS version 8.3.1 or higher if anything lower the GUI would appear different but the method remains same]:
    From AD-group or AD-username
    To Any-External or specific external IP/domain name of website to which access is allowed

    Configure webblocker under "Properties" with different set of categories allowed/denied or have entries in the to box to restrict user access. You would need to configure multiple HTTP rules to allow access to internet based on username/password.

    The users would need to authenticate through a java applet [your web-browser must be java enabled]:

    They would be prompted for username/password; once they get authentication they would get access to resources as configured.

    Please NOTE: the user must NOT close the applet window otherwise they would need to authenticate again.

    Please let me know if you have any more questions.

    Thank you.

    I am assuming that the authentication is properly configured on FB.
