Notes & Warnings
Important Never modify the original block files in the ...\BlockPages\en\Default directory. Copy these files to the ...\BlockPages\en\Custom directory first. Afterwards, only modify the copied files in the Custom directory.
Note Remote Filtering Server has 32 KB limit per image item. If using Remote Filtering, you should limit the image file size to 32 KB or less.
How do I modify the block page content for a custom block page?
Important Before getting started, read the information below:
Note If you are running Forcepoint software in stand-alone mode (not integrated with a third-party product or device), it is a good idea to also restart the Websense Network Agent service.
However, when a URL is blocked, Technical Support can assist in implementing a custom block page to display properly after it has been configured.
Note When Filtering Service runs on a Windows server, updating block page files is as simple as copying the files to the "Custom" directory and restarting Filtering Service.
For versions 7.5 to 8.2:
For versions 8.3 to 8.5:
Note As of version 8.3, Appliance Manager was replaced with Forcepoint Security Appliance Manager (FSAM or CM). This GUI currently does not have functionality to upload Block Page information. Instead, Curl commands are used as outlined in the link above.
For Software Content Gateway (all versions):
Note: Hosted Only Cloud Web Security Administrators can review following steps to Configure block and notification pages for their cloud users .
