  2. multiple nic's

    Hi,

    Is there anyway to tell "GFI WEBMONITOR 2012R3" to scan only one ethernet adapter instead of all the ethernet adapters installed\configured at the TMG machine.

    For Example: TMG server with 4 Ethernet Adapters and only one adapter\network should get scanned with "GFI WEBMONITOR".

    Thanks

  3. Eliminate Referral Sites & Ads from WebMonitor Surf Time Report

    My client wants to know what websites his employees visit and when. The Surf Time Report works, but includes referral sites & advertisements which is misleading to the person reviewing the report. For example, the report may show facebook.com because the employee was on a business-related site that included an ad for facebook, but the employee didn't actually go to facebook.com. Very misleading and difficult to interpret the report. It's especially bad for the employee being falsely accused of browsing where (s)he shouldn't be browsing during business hours.

  4. Sort WebMonitor Surf Time Report by time-of-day First Hit column

    I would like the "First Hit" column in the WebMonitor Surf Time Report to be sortable ascending / descending in the WebMonitor Management Console. Currently, the only way to do so is to export the report results to Excel and then sort.

  5. 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..

  6. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  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. 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

    I would like from you to please check the non ISA GFI monitor for monitoring the squid proxy and update if it can be integrated with that for reports and graphs.

  14. MIME Types in Dashboards and All reports

    It must be able to reflect the information on MIME type in the dashboard (activity, real-time) and the records to be able to understand exactly what is downloaded, and each file which the security policy is triggered.
    For example: open site. In it is java script that is malware. You must be able to understand which file is the problem.

  15. Disable X-Forwarded-For Header

    To have the ability to disable the X-Forwarded-For header in the GFI WebMonitor. This will prevent the client IP address from be forwarded out thru the proxy. The majority of other major proxies (Barracuda, McAfee, etc.) all have this feature available.

  16. Alerts per Department

    There needs to be a way to set up Alerts to only apply to certain users or groups. Ex, Finance Manager should get notified if someone in the financing department has activated a Productivity Loss alert

  17. Politicas Web Browsing Quota poner horario

    Poder bloquear una categoria pero liberarla durante durante una hora y mientras esta politica está bloqueda poder utilizar durante 5 minutos al dia.
    Ahora no se puede porqué al estar activada la Browsing Quota prevalece después de los 5 minutos aunque la Web Filtering esté desactivada. Solución poner horarios en la política de Browsing Quota.

    Con esto conseguimos que se queden bloqueadas politicas durante una jornada laboral, liberarlas durante el descanso de 1 hora pero permitir utilizarlas durante el bloqueo unos 5 minutos.

  18. Load whole site with one exception entry

    a quick suggestion which i think is a strong weakness in webmonitor
    versus other products

    we have certain websites like airmalta.com
    these sites have multiple url's inside their code
    for example they have widgets which come from xyz.com
    etc etc
    if you allow airmalta.com through, you still need to go through the code
    check for every other domain and allow it individually
    for the whole site to load correctly for users

    one should be able to put in airmalta.com and load the whole site

    i know there are technical stuff to deal with, but from a user's stand point it…

  19. New agent connects to Webmon

    Like with the 'old Proxy/ISA-client' it would be nice to have the connection get taken care of by the new GFI Webmon Agent. Right now it is difficult to get browsers other than IE to go through Webmon, since they are not domain-policy based in settings. In this case, one needs to really set up Webmon as the default gateway, to let noone get passed without being noticed. Since this new Agent is installed it can check
    Is the Webmon-machine there? Thenforward all pre-configured protocols via Webmon.
    If it is not there, filter with the local database, but without the…
