You block or allow an entire list of websites in a specific category in Blocking by Category. For example, turning the social media category to ON, will block access to Facebook.com, Twitter.com, YouTube.com, etc.

You add an override to make an exception for individual urls within a category. For example, if you would like to block all social media sites except for YouTube, you turn blocking 'ON' for the Social Networking Category, and then add an override allowing YouTube.com.

To filter HTTPS (secure) webpages, you turn HTTPS Filtering ON.

HTTPS Filtering

When enabled, this feature allows you to block access to HTTPS (secure) webpages based on your policy settings. Secure websites are categorized in the same way HTTP websites are categorized. When HTTPS filtering is turned on, your category settings apply to both HTTP sites and HTTPS sites. Therefore, sites like https://playboy.com and http://playboy.com are both categorized as pornography and blocked if your policy is configured to block pornography.

Secure websites are categorized based on the root site name or IP address instead of the entire path. As a result, if HTTPS filtering is enabled and HTTPS://YouTube.com is blocked, all videos hosted on HTTPS://YouTube.com will be blocked. It is not possible to unblock specific videos within YouTube because everything except the main domain name is encrypted and cannot be read by the filter.

To enable HTTPS Filtering move the slider so ON displays.

To disable HTTPS Filtering move the slider so OFF displays.

Once you make your selections, click Apply to save your changes.

Note: When HTTPS filtering is enabled in ENA WebSafe Prime, it is not possible to use Authorized Override to access a blocked HTTPS site.

Using Pre-Authentication to Access Blocked HTTPS Web Sites

Note: The pre-authentication feature is available in ENA Websafe Pro only.

If an HTTPS site is blocked, it may return a block page. To prevent this, you may pre-authenticate your browser session to avoid HTTPS sites from being blocked, assuming your credentials allow you to access the site.

If you receive such an error, take the following steps to access the HTTPs site:

  1. Open a new tab in your browser.
  2. Go to block.ena.net.
  3. Enter your credentials when the ENA WebSafe log in screen displays.
  4. Return to the original tab you opened where the error message displayed and refresh your screen, or open a new tab and re-enter the URL.
  5. The blocked page displays.

Note: After you have authenticated (or logged in), you must leave the block.ena.net tab open in your browser in order to avoid seeing error messages associated with blocked HTTPS sites.

URL Lookup

URL Lookup shows you how a specific URL is categorized according to your Content Filtering policy.

Locating URLs

  4. Click Search to look up the URLs you entered in the text box. To clear the text box, click Reset.

Delete the URL to remove it.

When you are finished, click Continue.
