url filtering license VX9000


Userlevel 2
Hi.

I have a scenario with a vx9000 and several APs.

Is it necessary to have a "web filtering license" to block access to web pages created in a static way with a list of URLs entered manually into the controller?

Thanks

Hi Jose,

I think what you are looking for can be found in the following article: https://gtacknowledge.extremenetworks.com/articles/Q_A/What-is-the-WING-URL-Based-Filtering-or-Web-F....

'If no license is installed, the Web filtering feature can still be used, but restricted to the custom defined URL lists.' - Ref web filtering overview document from article.

Hope this helps.

Jose,

The 'WEBF' product is no longer available. However it is not required if you wish to create a manually-inputted, static URL list as indicated by my colleague Sam, above.

Thanks,
Darrel.

Prefect. Thanks.
I followed the sharepoint link in the article that Sam indicated and the blocking of the list of urls worked correctly.
And then which product replaces the WEBF?

OpenDNS integration would be our recommended course of action for dynamic filtering on a large scale.

I have been reviewing the operation of opendns and I see that I have to configure an api token generated from the cisco umbrella panel in the controller. I have looked at the instructions of a cisco controller. for a vx9000 this would be the correct way to configure it? I have been reviewing but I do not find this option in the vx

Hi Jose, I have a draft OpenDNS integration guide for VX9000 that I've been given but not personally tested. Happy for you to download it from my DropBox here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/k8ni99v3ysk66w0/WiNG%20OpenDNS%20Configuration%20-%20Draft.pdf?dl=0 .

Hello Darrel.
Thank you very much for the guide. I will prove it and I will report the result.

Hi Darrel.
It works perfectly. The problem is that is a bit expensive.... 🙂
Regards and thanks again.

Hi again.

I have tried again to activate the web filtering service. No license for a manually defined URL list. I have followed the manual but this time I can not make it work. The version is 5.9.1.2.

Some help?

Thanks
