How to block Youtube and facebook on fortigate?

This is using Fortigate 110D with firmware 5.2.3. I tried to block the above usages via web filter and URL, but not successful. I heard that i can use application control to stop the above 2 items without problem, is that right? If so, how to block them?


Thanks,
LVL 1

It may be the same concept as disabling Facebook on Sonicwall.  Have a look here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28703546/Facebook-getting-through-Sonicwall.html

Hi Wayne88,

Settings on Sonicwall is a lot different from Fortigate. I didn't handle sonicwall, so I don't know how to get the settings work in Fortigate.

Both can use application control on top of the web filter.
