I have installed ccproxy server and have setup firefox to use this proxy server. Now I am trying out different features of proxy server. For testing purpose, I want to check blocking of site. I create a webfilter and edit the client account to use this web filter. Still, I can access this site.

Filter snapshot is:

Account snapshot is:

And I know that requests are going thru proxy because my accesses are reflected in monitor tab. and I don't think that it is because of caching, because I am able to ask questions etc as well. and I have restarted the proxy after configuration.

Please let me know, what might be going wrong.

It works for my by specifying a text file in the site filter field (instead of the site directly in the field like you have it). Then inside of the text file you list out your desired blocked sites. One per line. Semicolon at end of the site name.


Point site filter field at C:\blacklist.txt

Inside blacklist.txt have the following
