i have juniper SSG20 as a firewall and gateway , i have tried to block some sites on the firewall (facebook and youtube) but could not for some reason . What i am using as of now is OPENDNS ....to block some sites  ...but i still face some problem as the opendns dns setting needs to synch with the dynamic ip addresses of my interface  .

Can any one please suggest me a permanent way of blocking social networking sites on Juniper SSG20

Thanks and Regards .
