Got a request from “dedu mihail” & “Amandeep Singh” on how to block https sites. In this quick walk-through we show how to use the proxy with manual settings which is needed to block https urls / sites. It does not work via transparent mode. (We could not find a simple way to make it work via transparent mode).
1. Configure the end user machine to use the proxy.
2. Configure the proxy on IPFire to use the url filter capability.
3. Configure the url filter to block the https url 4. Configure the url filter to allow restriction bypass for listed IP’s.
