Environment

Novell Netware 6.5
Novell BorderManager 3.8
Patch BM38SP4.EXE applied
Patch BM38SP4_IR5.EXE applied

Situation

Administrator wants to block access to www.bebo.com using Access Control Rules from Novell BorderManager 3.8

Resolution

Create the following rules to block www.bebo.com:

1. Launch nwadmn32
2. Double left-click with the mouse over the BorderManager server object
3. Choose the BorderManager Access rule tab
4. Add a new rule using these settings:
- Action: Deny
- Access type: URL
- Source: Any
- Destination/Specified/Add:
http://*.bebo.com/*
http://*.*.bebo.com/*

5. Click OK
6. On the BorderManager Setup tab, make sure that "Enforce access rules" is checked.

From now on, all access to www.bebo.com will be blocked.

This two rules are needed because bebo website uses a different URL to allow access. A LAN trace showed that the URL used to access this site is http://dhg.s.bebo.com,
hence the need of create two rules.

Additional Information

It may be necessary to unload and reload the proxy to pick up the new rule.
