Deploying a Web Security Policy

Note: This topic applies to the Framlingham Release.

By default, Guardian comes with a comprehensive web security policy in place. There are several ways of deploying this policy on users’ workstations, all of which are described in this help.

In this section, we explain the quickest way to deploy the policy for review and testing purposes.

Note: The following steps explain how to deploy the default web security policy on a user’s workstation with Internet Explorer 10 installed as the web browser.

To deploy the policy:

1. Start Internet Explorer, and from the Tools menu, select Internet Options.
2. On the Connections tab, click LAN settings and in the Proxy server area, select Use a proxy server for your LAN …
3. Enter your Smoothwall’s IP address and port number 800.
4. Click Advanced to access more settings. In the Exceptions area, enter Guardian’s IP address and any other IP addresses to content that you do not want filtered, for example, your intranet or local wiki.
5. Click OK, OK and OK to save the settings.
