We just purchased untangle web filter for a client of mine. We only got the web filter and we only want it to apply to a specific vlan.
I was told by someone from Untangle that this was a usable configuration and that I could use the Bypass Settings to Bypass all traffic other than from my specific Vlan.
Well try as I might, I can’t seem to find the right settings to only apply the filter to the specific vlan. I either end up with no traffic passing through the filter or all traffic going through the filter, which I don’t want because we only have 25 licenses.
Any ideas what I might be missing or what I’m doing wrong?
I’ve tried setting “inbound traffic to interface-explicitly process” and all other traffic bypass.
I have also tried bypass in and bypass out rules for every interface other than my specific vlan.
Neither combination worked.
I should be clear, we only have the web filter, not the NG firewall so we don’t have access to policy manager.
They have a write up here on that
Also, if you are a paid user they have support that should help with the rule writing.
Thanks for replying Tom!
I figured it out…
OK so what I did in case anyone else wants to know is that I went into the bypass rules under settings and put a rule for the vlan I want filtered that says
Traffic originating from address 192.168.1.0/24 process
Followed by a rule for each vlan I wanted bypassed that said
Traffic originating from address 192.168.2.0/24 bypass.
I was missing the asterisk that pointed out that all traffic not matching a rule would automatically be processed and was still getting traffic from a vlan that I hadn’t explicitly written a rule for. There’s probably another way to do this and I assume it still works with other sized subnets.
This also stopped the admin warning about going over my allotted licenses.
