Block Domains

Hi!

 

It's fascinating - despite a solid and long education in IT I cannot for the life of me get the blocking function on the Horizon to work. Maybe you can help me?

 

Here's what I did:

 

Log onto the web interface of my Horizon box as admin.

Go to Parental Control and choose "Web Site Filters".

Click on the + next to "Blocked Domains"

Enter a domain, e.g. "20min.ch"

Press "Save"

Open 20min.ch

 

Expected Result: Timeout, 404, "BLOCKED!" message, ... Basically anything except the website of the well known entertainment magazine.

Result: The website of 20min.ch

 

Alternatively, I tried a different policy ("default" instead of all). Same result.

I also tried "http://20min.ch", but that one wasn't even saved, it just disappeared. No message, nothing. And yes, I checked both policies.

I also entered *.20min.ch, this one also disappeared.

"www.20min.ch" was accepted, but didn't help either.

 

I emptied my cache and tried two different browsers. I still had access to the website. I can't find any help in the manual (http://www.upc-cablecom.ch/content/dam/www-upc-cablecom-ch/Support/manuals/de/hrz/upc-horizon-benutz...).

 

Does this actually work?

Re: Block Domains

No worries - I cross-posted this to Twitter already and they're apparently also looking for any information on this onimous box.
