Firewall rules don’t work

We have a McAfee SIG 3200 appliance, and rules are pretty much clear cut - Deny this, allow that! The 'deny' and 'allow' are applied to the different categories we have created for the different levels of access groups. whilst the rules remain unchanged, restricted sites (like yahoo, youtube etc) are accessible by our users. Plese help! fijiprincess2005@gmail.com

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I would recommend opening a support case with McAfee on the issues you describe or posting the question on the McAfee community support forums. My organization uses these devices for email edge devices only and not for web traffic filtering. Web traffic filtering is handled by 8e6 or Websense type devices.

You should also make sure that the user’s traffic is hitting the SIG devices. Capture traffic to/from the SIG(s) and ensure that the device is in the traffic path between the clients and the internet. It may be that the users are bypassing the device in some way and therefore the rules are being ignored.
