Web Access Control


Web Access Control allows an administrator to enforce time-of-day web access to groups or specific devices using web proxy. To enable Web Access Control features, the administrator would have to define the time for which the web access restrictions are to be imposed. The secondary level of configuration involves tagging a user group, IP Address, or a MAC Address with the applied time restrictions.

The administrator can define time restrictions for a user group, IP address or a MAC address to access the web and the restrictions can be categorized to particular days of the week as well.
