Title: how to block website in router starting with https://
Post by: amarsworld on August 20, 2012, 05:11:40 AM
I have recently purchase a DIR-605L D-link router. i need to block some social networking site like www.facebook.com. Recently i blocked the site www.facebook.com in parental control as block site name "facebook.com". But users are access the same site by typing https://www.facebook.com. Please help me out to resolve this issue

Thanks

You might need to use Dynamic or OpenDNS and go that site and set up rules for FB. You'll need to go to that web site and set up an account. Usually free.

You need to set up and use Maintenance/DynamicDNS I think on the router.
You'll need to enter in the new DNS IP addresses under Setup/Internet/Manual I believe so the router will go to the new DNS site that has the FB rules. There is a link on the router for setting up DynamticDNS I think.
