To block a URL for a specific user
Cyberoam provides default categories, which can be used to block the malicious and objectionable contents. Category is a grouping of URLs. When we block the category, access to all the URLs get blocked. Hence, when we want to block specific URL’s of a category, ,we need to create a Custom Web Category. Custom web category is given priority over default category while allowing/restricting the access. The search result displays custom category name and not the default category name.For an hypothetical example to block URLs www.yahoo.com, www.orkut.com, www.facebook.com and www.youtube.comfor user ‘John’, we need to create a Custom Web Category.Document provides steps on creating custom web category and blocking the access for the user ‘John’.
