TZ 300 CFS not blocking


I am allowing all categories at CFS. HTTPS enabled.

I have enabled DPI-SSL client for Content Filter.

The CFS policy only denies "youtube.*".

It is denying "" but it is allowing "".

Something is wrong in here.

    I have created an APP rule just to deny YOUTUBE. I enabled it.

    I could see how YOUTUBE was not accessible.

    After disabling the APP rule, CFS did it job blocking "".

    I do not understand it, but it works now.

    Thank you for visiting SonicWall Community.

    Looks like an odd issue. Could you please test the website access using a different browser or Incognito window? This will ensure not using browser cache.

    If the issue persists, please check if the CFS policy is getting hit counts.

    Let me knowhow this goes.
