URL blocking

Post by ledgie » Tue Feb 27, 2018 8:20 am

I am trying to block YouTube between midnight and 10am on my 8800NL.

I've set it up as per the attached screenshots but it doesn't seem to work. Anyone spot what I've done wrong?

Thanks

That is because youtube is a https URL, https does not work with the URL filter.

Disable the URL filtering, and setup a account with open DNS and enter your open DNS credentials within the 'Configuration >> Security >> Parental Control Provider' you can setup up filters once logged into open DNS.

Thanks for the reply billion fan. I already use OpenDNS but you can't set up restrictions by time on that service.

Does keyword filtering also not work on https?

Thanks

Does keyword filtering work on https? I think No, It does not. You may refer chegg site by creating your account through free-account.net to get more information about this.
