best reporting application for Watchguard logs

Hello experts - does anyone know of any third party apps for viewing and reporting of Watchguard logs, particularly www traffic ?

ok.

the adobe has not to do with webblocker i think, check in the HTTP proxy properties , there is a tab called "content types" in the left menu. windows .exe is blocked by default. so you can remove it there.

if you want logs of ALLOWED packets as well, you should explicitly say so in your policy.
to do so : open the policy and on the second tab click 'logging' , then check the box that says log allowed packets.

If you want to monitor which webblocker categories are being blocked in the future , then you must setup logging for that as well.

Hope this helps

I've got that working now thanks but I can I ask you a couple more questions as I don't have much experience with this stuff.

in order to monitor and report on  www traffic do you have to have the web proxy or web blocker running ?

I ask this becuase I had strange problem. I set up web blocker on this XTM22 and chose to use the Watchguard online database.

I allowed all categories with logging so we could get an idea what is going however it insists on blocking adobe.com downloads (such as Acrobat Reader, Flash Player, etc)

When trying to install these programs a pop up informs the user that the site has been blocked by the Watchguard.

We just want reports at this stage and don't want to block any sites or activities.
