Webblocker Warn action

edited October 2021 in Firebox - Other

I've got an small issue with my policies and I'm sure it's just a silly configuration issue, but I'll be damned if I can find the solution.

I've set a few catagories in Webblocker to warn as opposed to deny or allow. When a user goes to a page that triggers the warn action, they are presented with the HTTP-Proxy warn dialog as expected. They then click on the continue to site button. They are then redirected to a certificate error page at https://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:4100/wbo that they then need to click through to access the site. The certificate it references is a domain wildcard cert for *.heroldengineering.com but I can't get the redirect to go to https://myrandomfirebox[dot]heroldengineering[dot]com:4100/wbo

How do I fix this?

    You don't! It is a long-standing BUG with a request to correct it. I first identified it during a beta in May 2019.

    Case 01282169: WebBlocker warn not functioning correctly with public SSL cert.

    The defect/enhancement you reported is:

    The current status is:
    BUG/RFE is open and awaiting Engineering review

    It has been over two years with no fix for it.

    ugh... K thanks Gregg, I was sure it was something I was doing wrong.

    Open a case and reference mine. Maybe they need more complaints before they bother fixing it.

    I also have this issue and have opened a case.

    So it's not just me!

    In my case it redirects to https://:4100 which looks like it matches either the "WatchGuard Authentication" or "WG-Auth-WebBlocker" auto-inserted rules - where the invalid SSL cert in my case is the default "Fireware web CA" cert (the one marked as the web server certificate), which isn't trusted in my case.

    New case here I go - thanks for the bug case number.
