Create a new computer set with IPs and put it in the exception list in the access rule.

If that does not work, please check logs , what does it tell ?
Hi Osama,
It is as simple as you can in TMG. just use ** in override category.

Select Web Access Policy Rule ===> Configure Url Category overrides in Active Pane and override above category with different URL Category.

I hope it could resolved your issue.

Only blocking that by IP address OR enabling https inspection will work.

Hi Sulimanw,

I am still running TMG with above setting even surfing with https or http.

Hi sthrme,

then you have https inspection enabled on your TMG box/

not yet
It does not make sense that TMG/ISA can read encrypted packets with out https inspection enabled.

try to view logs while accessing,,, which rule blocks the traffic ?
