Hello,

I have a NetScreen SSG-5 firewall and I want to block certain specific URLs.  It has been a while since I did any configuration on the unit and I am more experienced with an older model.  The unit is configured with multiple zones.  I want to block certain sites, for instance Facebook, from users.  I can use easy to follow step-by-step instructions if at all possible.

Thanks!

If your firewall is configured with a correct and working DNS, you can do this.
First create a Host for say Facebook in the Untrust Zone. Now instead of putting the IP address, put the domain name as www.facebook.com.
Now in the policies create a rule from say Trust to Untrust; Click on New - Source ANY  -Destination, Facebook (host created in above step), - Service ANY and Deny the rule.
 
See if it helps.
