Hi Ashique,

I'm not familiar with Fortigate but I'd check first to verify your subscriptions (System > Dashboard > Status under Licensing Information module)...determine what licensing you have, e.g. FortiGuard > IPS & Application Control, Web Filtering, etc. (green checkmark = active)

Then go to Security Profiles > Web Filtering and screenshot/post what you see. Drill down into the FortiGuard Categories, e.g. Bandwidth Consuming > Streaming Media and Download; and Internet Radio and TV. Also Social Media. Disable these. Look into the Static URL Filter as well and screenshot/post that here.

Also look at Application Control.

Do you have SSL Inspection setup?

Look at your Policy & Objects > Policy > IPv4 then look at your policies that could affect social media/multi-media. Look for a policy under internal/lan/port1 - wan1...something like all, all, always, all, web default, SSL certificate-inspection, Accept, Enable.

Are you using Traffic Shaping at all?

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Turn off web filtering.

Its Solved. Web Filter was on
Blue Street TechLast KnightCommented:
This is an odd solution to just wipe out web filtering altogether but I guess that is what the OP wants. :|
Craig BeckCommented:
I don't know why my definitive answer wasn't chosen as the answer?!
Blue Street TechLast KnightCommented:
You feel there should be no split? I thought a split was fair my post shows the OP where to disable the specific categories inside the web filtering. I thought a 50/50% split was fair. please advise if you think otherwise.
