Hi,

Any watchguard gurus out there? I am just looking to understand the
content filtering (proxy policies) on the watchgaurd edge/peak/etc...
firewalls.

Does each proxy policy/content filter apply to a whole connection or
are you able to turn it off for certain IP/IP address ranges.

The user manual seems to indicate you can control their application
via IP's but I need to be sure.

Kind Regards,
Dan.

I have 4 different filter rules setup, based on IP ranges in our
networks. You can set ANY rule to apply to any IP or range of IP, so
that you can have different rules for different IP.

We normally use DHCP reservations so that managers systems are in one
range, developers in another, and the non-reserved stations have the
most filtering.
