I found the answer to my blocked site issue. I did a ping of www.metacrawler.com to obtain the ip address. I then used Kloth.net to do an nslookup of the ip address. The resolution went through a couple sites within infospace.com. There is an entry for *infospace.com in the porn deny list. I removed that entry and metacrawler is working again.
Another entry just below that was *infoworld.com which is an IT web site I regularly visit.
The fact that these block lists are free brings to mind - you get what you pay for. More importantly you may find other legitimate sites in the lists that will get weeded out over time as users complain about not being able to get to specific sites.
hello....i've done all the steps in this articell.....http://forums.isaserver.org/m_250070100/mpage_2/tm.htm but..suprisely i cannot access all other websites...anybody can tell me why did this happened? i need to solve this problem urgently...
I run across the same problem. Here is the fix, when you type in or import the website name for ex. freeones.com, make sure you have the website name typed in as *freeones.com with NO period thats the trick. Hope this helps.
Hello tshinder This link you posted is not working? can you please help use with all pending question with step by step instruction, if you have one? I tried many articles on how to import black list but none worked for me, I posted this question many times but still no solution for it. Also trying to block users from searching particualr sites and words, how to make this work?
Please guide us and I think this will help everyone as I have seen many post regarding site blocking etc?
I found many of them but I get the below error? I will appreciate if you help me to resolve this, I always try myself and do some research before I post something? I did all my home work but it's still not working? Here's the error?
I get the below error when I try to import , how can I fix it?
he file being importing can only be imported to an array node. The error occurred on object 'URLSets' of class 'URL Sets' in the scope of array 'W2K3-ISA'.
I use Enterprise Edition - and of course ran into the warning of importing the blacklist...
So what I did was create my own "Blocked URL Set" with 1 url (I used www.whitehouse.com), then I exported what I had just created to an XML file, edited that as well as the blocked.xml file, and simply copy/pasted all the relevant sites to my own XML, saved it, re-imported that.... and it works like a charm.... with no errors/warnings!
I was able to import blocklist successfully but, still having the below problem which was posted by someone before? I have the same problem. Take for example the URL "fateback.com". Through the IE you can access the site both by "http://www.fateback.com" and "http://fateback.com". However, by blocking "http://fateback.com" y can still access it by using "http://www.fateback.com"
Am i doing something wrong or is it supposed to work like this ? I've tried blocking "http://*.fateback.com" and it works, but is this how it is suppossed to be done ? ps: This doesnt happen only with that address, i've tried it with many on the blocked lists from the article.
I also tried to import banned advertisement and it gives me below error? The file cannot be imported. The exported file contains an object of type Domain Name Sets which cannot be imported into an object of type Domain Name Set.
