Hello,

The pix does not allow you to block urls except if you use it in conjunction with websense for example. You could however deny all outgoing traffic to port 80 except for the ip address of the websites you want to be able to access.

To do that you would setup an access-list allowing you internal network to access certain ips on port 80 and deny all other traffic outgoing.

Let me know if you need more information on how to accomplish this.

How to Disable the Netgear Router Firewall how-to-disable-the-netgear-router-firewall.gif To disable the Netgear Router Firewall, add a new rule that allows all access from the outside to the inside.
To do this, type the router's address (the default is either 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1) in the Web browser
Enter the username and password in the prompt that appears. The default username is admin and the default password is password.
From the main menu, choose Security -> Rules
Add a new rule for Inbound Services with a service name of "ANY" and an action of "ALLOW always."
Then, move the new rule up until it is the first rule in the Inbound Services section.
Finally, make certain that this rule is enabled by checking the Enable column.
The Netgear Router firewall is now disabled and the internal network is now completely unprotected and open to attack from the Internet.

I used DFL-800 to block certain sites using web filters. . It's working fine but Java script is not working after that. In browsers Java & Java script is enabled. What may be the reason?


Your better off not doing it that way, reset the router. Use GoogleDNS or OpenDNS to block certain websites as that way you've less hassle and any websites you want to block then add them to your hosts files
