1. You cannot block web sites using https.

2. Keyword blocking works on the contents of a web site. You want URL address blocking.

3. You can't use *.

Thanx, we removed the * from the url.  We are testing/checking these sites from HTTP and not HTTPS so they should then be blocked but they aren't.  Anything else that we might be missing here?

well if you want to block the websites like facebook, youtube, gmail and yahoo then provide the URL in the Website Blocking by URL address instead of using in the key words.
