I have a Websense Policy broker at home office and a remote site with a Cisco 2811 ISR.  I would like to configure the router to white list/black list consulting with the Websense Policy broker.  Is this possible and can you point me to how to configure this?  Is there a special software feature required to be on the ISR in order to do this?  Currently running: (C2800NM-ADVIPSERVICESK9-M), Version 12.4(22)T3

Are you wanting to filter the users from the remote site to the Websense Installation at the home site? If so the only way would be to setup Hybrid Filtering using Websense Web Security Gateway Anywhere to filter remote locations.

I want to filter users at a remote site from being able to reach restricted sites as defined in the Websense Policy Broker.  And I want to do this without having a server (with websense filtering software) at the site.  I want the router to reference the Websense Policy Broker at HQ office for the pass/no pass.  This appears to be available per the URL below.  Any insight?
