Is it possible to have a specific configuration for some users only? What I would like to do is have some of the users have access to everything and some others have restricted access based. More particularely I would like to be able to block some websites for some users.

Yes, that should be possible, but I believe you need fixed ip addresses and the group of users you wish to block, those ip addresses should grouped together (e.g. to Then you can create the CFS-filter and enable the CFS exclusion list for all the other users to allow access to all sites..

I do that already.
the problem is that everyone needs to have some website blocked but some others need to have more website blocked.

The only, I believe, to accomplish that is to use multiple zones. Maybe you can ask sonicwall support.

ok managed to sort myself out !
in my situation, it is fairly simple with the OS version 5.2 and above (I was before using os 5.0).
With the new 5.2 you can now have CFS Policy per IP Address Range. I then removed the forbidden domains on the default policy (as there were none in fact) and added it to the policy for those specific ips.
