If you are a URL Filter Override admin, you can grant users access to URL categories that are normally blocked by the URL Filter. Follow the steps below to grant a user access to a URL category for a specific length of time.

Before You Begin

Get the following information from the Barracuda CloudGen Firewall administrator:

  • The IP address of the ticketing web interface (e.g., 1.2.3.4)
  • The username and password for your admin user.
  • Your browser must allow JavaScript on the override block and admin pages.

Grant URL Category Override

  1. In a browser, go to: http://IP address for the override web interface/cgi-bin/override-admin
  2. Enter your Username and Password.
  3. Click Login.
