Sonicwall HTTPS filtering

I recently acquired a sonicwall 250 NSA with most licenses but the DPI-SSL (at the time I did not know the impact this license had) and  I came across a problem when filtering content to my users.. well https is not filtered at all... and lots of sites use https. So I tried to create a firewall rule that would deny https to some users but, as it turns out . you cant do this so... does anyone know a workaround or a method to if possible filter https (yes I tried the Enable HTTPS Content Filtering checkmark)  and if not possible to deny traffic to some users at the https service and allow others...

Thanks!

Looks good however I'm looking to deny all https access to some users not to a special website.  the other 3 links are about how to use a blacklist and DPI-SSL license.. it does help but it doesnt solve the problem as a whole :)  Thanks!

You should be able to do that by setting up a firewall rule. Depending upon which list is larger, the ones you want to block, or the ones you want to allow, would determine the best way to go. For example, assume you want to block 3 pc's (by ip or mac address), first define each one as an Address Object, then add all three to a Group. Now create a rule for the LAN to WAN zone that blocks are traffic on port 443 for the specific group. Make sure this rule is above (higher priority) then the permit all (any any) rule. That should do it.

If you need instructions to do this please advise.
