Exception List

You may add one or more hosts to your blacklist or whitelist using the exception list (see Exceptions in the settings tree). Host names listed as Allowed will always be allowed, even if a certain host is listed in one or more forbidden categories. Host names listed as Forbidden will not be resolved regardless of the applicable traffic control rules. The exception lists are global lists, i.e. they are applied to all users connected to GateWall DNS Filter.

Host names listed in the exception list are stored in and subsections of section in the server settings file. You may specify incomplete host names in these subsections, replacing the omitted segment by a * symbol. The settings file includes another section where you may specify whitelist hosts (Allowed option). Such hosts will be listed in subsection of section. This list may only contain full domain host names.
