Content blocking mechanism


#1

Dear All,

Could you kindly advise about the mechanism of Peplink content blocking.
the manual has mentioned the device will inspect and look for blocked domain names on all HTTP traffic. but secure web (HTTPS) traffic is not supported.

while we tested Facebook which is Https, and got blocked successfully, without using any certificate as other systems are doing.

could you please advise about the mechanism with HTTPS traffic, also in the GUI under the question mark label, it is written “The device will inspect and look for blocked domain names on all HTTP and HTTPS traffic”

Best Regards,

This blocking is based on the URL. You may find the Content Filtering Database below.
