  1. sooo much items

    - difficult GUI
    - no central configuration
    - no integrated Loadbalancing in case of more webmonitors
    - No takeover of the security-settings in case of upgrading from V2013
    - No cumulated reporting over more webmonitors

  2. Issues in the UI Access Control

    Cannot edit the Default Authorization Rule (and even a 2nd policy created)

    Trying to edit the default rule by adding an additional user, group and/or IP. The window opens up, you press the Save button, the Save animation comes up and you are re-directed to the console. After opening the same Default Authorization Rule, none of the changes I made where confirmed. (applies for adding and deletion of entries)

  4. WebMonitor Consolidated Report

    Administrator should be able to view consolidated report as to the bandwidth usage, time spent and which website is being viewed.
    A single report should be able to carry out all these features.

  5. Block personal Gmail & IM, but allow Google business apps

    Google supports http header X-GoogApps-Allowed-Domains to allow only access to google services for business accounts but not for personal accounts.

    http://support.google.com/a/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1668854

    Please support this so we can block personal google IM and mail but not allowed business mail, IM and hangouts.

    Also if it possible track IM conversations to determine if sender is a business related account or not.

  7. Scanning only until filesize limit

    Big files wich are per configuration to scan will force the Webmon crash. ( See Case GFI-101228-207682 ). The possibility of setting a scanlimit (for example 500 MB/file) could help to increase performance and stability.

  9. Highlight active categories in selection window

    If you want to change the category of a filtering policy it is extremely difficult because in the selection window are not checked categories that are already active.

    So active categories should be highlighted in the selection window!

  10. Reports page, Change Title Click to Run & Run to be edit button

    It is unituitive to click the title to edit the report. Clicking the title should RUN the report, as such where the run button is... that should be the edit button.

    I keep clicking the title expecting it to run the report, even though I know it won't. Also once on the edit page add 2 buttons.

    Run Now and Save and Run

  11. Sort Apple wpad or PAC file issues

    All apple products seem to default to "no proxy settings", i.e. unlike Microsoft which defaults all browsers and connections to Auto Detect Proxy settings Apple doesn't.

    This is to speed up connection time but also is a huge security loop hole. Now I'm NOT expecting GFI to be able to fix the inherant setup of Apple products but investigate a work around for visiting clients with Apple products so I can still stop them using undesirable sites.

    This is ONLY an issue with the GFI WebMonitor running in Simple Proxy mode, in gateway all traffic is routed regardless so you…

  12. Allow clone of Default Policies

    Assuming we do not add an ignore field to each category (as per my previous suggestion) then we need the ability to clone the default so I can make a single change, i.e. open or close a single category, rather than having to open and close the correct categories

  13. WEB filtering using keywords

    I suggest you enable whitelisting/blacklisting using keywords included in the URL in addition to domain and wildcard.
    For instance, companies may have multiple local websites as company.co.uk company.de company.fr company.sp and so on...

  14. webmon - log/track changes to config w/ comment box

    create a way to track changes to the config.

    For sites that have multiple administrators that maybe making changes it would be good to know what was changed, by who, and why.

  15. Render web page correctly that contain blocked reference domains

    When a user attempts to connect to a page with a site request, I would like for it to fully load the page even if related contents from other blocked domains are requested. This will allow for the page to appear fully, and not show as broken to the user.
    If one of the requested domains are then attempted by user selection on the page displayed, it should be actioned as per the Web Filtering Policy in place.

    In essence, the referred domain requested by the initial transaction will be processed and filtered differently than a primary domain request.

  19. Web Filtering

    Re-introduce the web filtering for 3rd party Advertising.
    When surfing the net , avoid 3rd party adverts opening or if they do open it says blocked by vipre.
    The bad website filtering is good but does not block all gambling/ looking for love adverts opening up.

  20. specify how long the warn and allow prompt resets

    Currently if you set the warn and allow flag in a policy.. it will warn once only for the whole day..
    maybe in the next release there could be the option to specify a reset time..
    admins might want to give some users 10 mins after the prompt then re-prompt on subsequent visits.. or even prompt every time for certain sites.. (maybe some PC's are communal.. so, as it stands,1 person is prompted.. but the next is not.. as is with generic logins)
    just a thought..
