URL Filter and Blocking Problems - BrightBox 2

I'm having a problem with the Bright Box 2 URL Blocking. Even though the keyword of a website is added, it still fails to block the website. Even with the full url it is still failing to block offensive websites. It does not seem to work with https sites.

@BilalBrown: I presume you have blocked "WWW with URL Blocking" as you suggest elsewhere. It's definition only says "HTTP". I guess there's a hole in its functionality in that it does not include "HTTPS".


Does it work OK with HTTP sites?

Re: URL Filter and Blocking Problems - BrightBox 2

it seems to work with http sites, but this is a major flaw. I've added Norton connectsafe DNS to the DNS settings which is doing a great job of blocking unwanted sites.

Here are the settings if anyone wants to use them:

  • Primary DNS:
  • Secondary DNS:
