Hi all. Please advise how to block a website (YouTube/FaceBook, etc) on a Ruckus ZD1112 ZoneDirector?

Unless I've missed the feature in the last 4 years of usage this is not something you can do with a ZD.

It configures your APs, creates WLAN, allows/restricts clients, allocates bandwidth and frequencies, schedules and numerous other useful bits but upstream Internet sites is proxy/webfiltering stuff not ZD.

There might be some highly creative workaround...but that's for the clever folk to comment on.

Hi,
I solved by using filtering at DNS level. In particular, I'm using openDNS free service https://www.opendns.com/home-internet-security/ that allows fine-grade blocking or preconfigured filtering at DNS level without any fee.
On the ZD you have only to change the DNS IP to 208.67.222.222 208.67.220.220

IF these feature is included than it would be surely of a great sell value . BUt than it will increase complications in the device and Ruckus would need additional expertise for the Firewall Features . this could change the focus form Wifi . Hence I feel that Ruckus should continue to do its work on Wifi only .
