SonicOS 6.5 CFS question

I upgraded our SonicWall at the beginning of the year and have some confusion regarding SonicOS's  CFS.  The device is running SonicOS Enhanced 6.5.0.2-8n.

(1) Is there a way to get a log of *ALL* CFS entries?  When I look under:

Log Settings > Base Setup > Security Services > Content Filter

It shows:

CFS Alert = 1461
Website Accessed = 16
Website Blocked = 14

However, I can't figure out how to get to that log.

(2) Is there a way for me to be emailed anytime someone gets the "blocked" screen with the details shown on the block screen they see?

TIA.

Hi fcummins,

I have answered your questions below:

(1) Is there a way to get a log of *ALL* CFS entries?
Yes, go to Investigate > Appflow Reports > URL Ratings. This will give you the ranking, number of sessions & percentage. You can export a report from there or send a report.

(2) Is there a way for me to be emailed anytime someone gets the "blocked" screen with the details shown on the block screen they see?
You can be emailed on a per-event basis by going to Manage > Log Settings > Automation. Then configure your mail server. Lastly, go to Manage > Log Settings > Base Setup and under the Email Column header uncheck all then locate the items you want to receive mail notifications like CFS, etc.

Additionally, I like to modify the HTML in the default CFS block page and send the link to your helpdesk that way tickets can be directly initiated and handled for false-positives, etc. instead of the SonicWALL URL landing page.

Let me know if you have any other questions!
