Want to use Time option for allowing website on secific day



  • Dear Experts, I wanted to uses the Time option for allowing some solcial sites for just only one day automaticaly, and should get blocked on the next day, for e.g. if I want to allow facebook to get started on saturday on its own and should get blocked on on sunday. How can I do that. Right now I had configured on my pfsense but it blocked the sites all the time. I had attached the config please check

    I had made the Time option working in my PFsense for squid. This found that it works in the reverse way. From Sunday to Friday I had configured the Time slot (this means facebook will be blocked from Sunday to Friday) with default time i.e 00:00-23:59, and did not added Saturday in Time option. Then in Group ACL, I had selected Sun-Fri as a fixed rule. So now for Saturday Facebook works for the whole day and is blocked on other days i.e. from Sunday to Friday. It was tricky please find attachment to refer






  • In your first post, you actually want to allow the audio-video stuff during leisure time, so in the left column, select "allow" for the categories you want to enable. In the right column (off-time) select "deny" for the categories that you want to deny outside of leisure time.
    Also note that various people are having trouble getting the time-based rules to actually work in real-time on 2.0.n, so you might find that sometimes your rule doesn't turn on and off as you expect - see http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,43352.0.html
