URL filter – Cookbook | FortiGate / FortiOS 6.2.0 | Fortinet …

URL filter is also called static URL filter. By adding specific URLs with patterns containing text and regular expressions, FortiGate can allow, block, exempt, and monitor web pages matching any specified URLs or patterns, and can display a replacement message instead.
Sample topology
Create URL filter
You can create a URL filter using the GUI or CLI. After creating the URL filter, attach it to a webfilter profile.
To create URL filter in the GUI:
Go to Security Profiles > Web Filter and go to the Static URL Filter section.
Enable URL Filter.
Under URL Filter, select Create New to display the New URL Filter pane.
URL Filter Type
Description
Simple
FortiGate tries to strictly match the full context. For example, if you enter in the URL field, it only matches traffic with. It won’t match or
When FortiGate finds a match, it performs the selected URL Action.
Regular Expression or Wildcard
FortiGate tries to match the pattern based on the rules of regular expressions or wildcards. For example, if you enter *fa* in the URL field, it matches all the content that has fa such as,,, etc.
For more information, see the URL Filter expressions technical note in
URL Filter Action
Block
Denies or blocks attempts to access any URL matching the URL pattern. FortiGate displays a replacement message.
Allow
The traffic is passed to the remaining FortiGuard webfilters, web content filters, web script filters, antivirus proxy operations, and DLP proxy operations. If the URL does not appear in the URL list, the traffic is permitted.
Monitor
The traffic is processed the same way as the Allow action. For the Monitor action, a log message is generated each time a matching traffic pattern is established.
Exempt
The traffic is allowed to bypass the remaining FortiGuard webfilters, web content filters, web script filters, antivirus scanning, and DLP proxy operations
For example, enter * and select Wildcard and Block; and select OK.
After creating the URL filter, attach it to a webfilter profile.

Blocking applications with custom signatures - Administration Guide ...

Blocking applications with custom signatures – Administration Guide …

Custom signatures can be used in application control profiles to block web traffic from specific applications, such as out of support operating systems.
In this example, you create a custom signature to detect PCs running Windows NT 6. 1 operating systems, including Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. The signature is added to an application control profile and the action is set to block. The profile is then used in a firewall policy so that web traffic matching the signature is blocked. The logs generated by this example can be used to help identify other computers that you need to block.
To make the settings visible in the GUI:
Go to System > Feature Visibility
In the Security Features section, enable Application Control.
Click Apply.
To create the custom application signature:
Go to Security Profiles > Application Signatures and click Create New > Custom Application Signature.
Enter a name for the custom signature, such as block_nt_6. 1.
Enter the Signature. In this example:
F-SBID( –attack_id 6483; –name “”; –default_action drop_session; –service HTTP; –protocol tcp; –app_cat 25; –flow from_client; –pattern! “FCT”; –pattern “Windows NT 6. 1”; –no_case; –context header; –weight 40;)
This signature scans HTTP and HTTPS traffic that matches the pattern Windows NT 6. 1 in its header. For blocking older versions of Windows, such as Windows XP, you would use the pattern Windows NT 5. 1. An attack ID is automatically generated when the signature is created.
Click OK.
The signature is included in the Custom Application Signature section of the signature list.
To use the signature in an application control profile:
Go to Security Profiles > Application Control.
Create a new profile, or edit an existing one.
In the Application and Filter Overrides table, click Create New.
Set Type to Application and Action to Block.
Select the custom signature from the list, using the search feature if required, then click Add Selected.
The signature is added to the table.
To add the application control profile to a firewall policy:
Go to Policy & Objects > Firewall Policy.
Edit the policy that is currently allows a connection from the internal network to the internet.
In the Security Profiles section, enable Application Control and select the profile.
If deep inspection is not enabled, then only HTTP traffic will be scanned. To scan HTTPS traffic, set SSL Inspection to a profile that includes deep inspection. See SSL & SSH Inspection for more information.
Results
When a PC that is running one of the affected operating systems tries to connect to the internet using a web browser, a replacement message is shown. For information on customizing replacement messages, see Replacement messages.
Go to Log & Report > Application Control to view the web traffic that is logged for the PC that is blocked by the application signature.

Someone on my work network keeps streaming Netflix.. How …

I am a very Jr. (noob) system admin for a small company. We have 22 computers connected to the LAN, which is controlled by Windows SBS 2008. No real routing, just DHCP from the server and a DSL connection from the Fortinet Firewall Appliance. Is there a quick way I can see who keeps going to (108. 175. 40. 114) from anything on the server? The firewall is owned by our ISP so I can’t gain access to it. The DHCP gives the same IP to every user even when their lease expires.. Anything you guys know of will definitely help me pinpoint thisI guess I’m looking for a tool on the SBS server.
