SonicWall TZ215 Per User Content Filtering
Posted on 2014-07-18
I have a Sonicwall TZ215 (unlimited user, latest firmware) with the content filtering license. I cannot figure out how to setup PER USER content filtering. I am looking for a step by step guide how to enable per user content filtering.
My Goal: Users must either log into the SonicWall content filtering service via browser authentication or be authenticated via Active Directory/Username on the PC and then be able to access the Internet. But he will be restricted based on their group’s permissions.
Example 1: Joe is in sales, he sits down at his workstation and logs into the PC. HE opens the Internet to do a search for leads on craigslist and is allowed. Later on he tries to do some online banking, but is blocked because the sales department is not allowed to use online banking.
Example 2: Ray is in accounting; he logs into his workstation to access the Internet and goes to craigslist, but is blocked. Later that day he logs into the companies banking site and is permitted, because the account group is allowed to access banking.
Thank you for your help.
