Web Filter with time tables


I have few days wotking with nethserver v6.8 and so far so good.

The only issue is with the proxy web filter, I’m trying to create a work profile for the company with the following timetable:

morning: 08:00 to 12:00
afternoon 13:30 to 17:00

Inside these time tables the people can only access authorized webpages, and outside (including lunch time 12:00 to 13:30) they can access everything.

I have created the profiles, rules and everything, but it seems that the web filter only pays attention to the default profile and the next one in the list (for example the one with the morning timetable) after 13:30 everybody still can access everything.

Is there any way to force all the time tables or profiles to be applied?



I can imagine two behavior here:
1- when a user surf on a site, this site is in the cache… And when the restricted time come, the cache stilll accessible.
2- perhaps the site is still accessible because the session was initiated before being restricted. Did you try to stop the session and open again?

One way to investigate is disabling the cache.
I think the best way will be to chain two proxies, one filtering and caching proxy, and another for time restriction.
