Is there anyway we can actually make separate policies for users and groups without making tons of exception rules? I find it so cumbersome that I have to make a exception for every group or user that I do not follow the base set of category blocking.

 

It would be ideal if we could make separate policies based on ldap user/group than making separate exceptions? I also have to find myself that I have to make double amount of exceptions because I have to make one for ldap set users/groups and one for NTLM as well.

 

This is something Websense makes it a lot easier to manage compared to the Barracuda Web Filter.

I agree.  I have no use for the Unauthenticated category, as all my users are authenticated or they get no Internet access at all.  I would like if the authenticted/unauthenticated list could be repopulaed with groups or OUs for easy granular control over filtering.

I think they're on to something here. Duplicate the current "Unauthenticated"/"Authenticated" pages, and allow a separate page to be applied to an LDAP or AD OU. Allow/Block/Warn at the Category level would replace 90% of my Custom Category lists, as there are very few URL specific rules.

I would like to see this as well.

I asked for that years ago...
