Q.  How can I block access to selected websites for my users?

A.  There are TWO steps.  You need to do both.

1.  Go to Advanced > Website Filter

Enter the websites you want filtered. For example, to block movies.netflix.com and www.netflix.com you just need to enter netflix.com Click on [Save Settings]
2. Go to Advanced > Access Control
Click on [Add Policy] You are taken through several steps but the one that matters is Step 4 where is says: Select the method for filtering. Pick: Method: ( ) Log Web Access Only ( ) Block All Access (X) Block Some Access Apply Web Filter: [X] Apply Advanced Port Filters: [ ] Save that and you're done.
