URL database tab
In this tab, the URL database provider can be changed. Two providers are available:
Embedded URL database: provider selected by default when a “standard” maintenance service is subscribed.
Extended Web Control: this provider is available only if you have subscribed to the option, which offers a cloud-based URL database. The advantage of this URL filter is its higher quality compared to the embedded solution.
The following operation can be performed:
|URL database provider||
Select the URL database provider that you wish to use. You can then choose its URL categories in the URL filtering module.
A box below the URL database provider options shows information about the provider's URL categories that are currently in use (names of categories and their descriptions).
To download updates of URL databases:
Embedded URL database: updates can be downloaded through the firewall's Active Update module. This module also makes it possible to change the addresses of update servers if a mirror site is used.
Extended Web Control: since this URL database is cloud-based, updates are downloaded dynamically and transparently.
If the servers are temporarily inaccessible, a page will indicate that the query mechanism for the classification of the site will be automatically relaunched.
