Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

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 stackoverflow.com 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.

I haven't used this program before but the usage for Forbidden URL suggests that you should be putting something other than http:// in there. So try leaving that blank, and making sure the user is definitely coming in through –  ta.speot.is Jul 9 '11 at 12:34
@todda : ok, I left it as blank but still I can access the site. –  p2pnode Jul 9 '11 at 12:37
You really want to block Stack Overflow? –  Sathya Jul 9 '11 at 12:59
like I said in question, for testing purpose... –  p2pnode Jul 9 '11 at 13:21
Also, I assume that applying the web filter is literally a FILTER onto this rule. But your rule doesn't block anything? Maximum Connections: -1 is equal to unlimited connections. –  ta.speot.is Jul 9 '11 at 22:50
