NetSweeper – Managing Transparent Filtering Addresses and Ranges

Within the platform, we are able to control the web filtering levels which a client receives by listing the IP address or range. Here we tell the filter to apply a different policy to either the individual IP, IP range. The more specific the client setting applies!

An example here would be where we want to

  • enable BYOD filtering to a IP used on the wireless system
  • enable Staff access from the staff DHCP range
  • enable Student accesss from an IP address Block

Change filtering for IP Address

From Web Admin – Policies – Clients – Click Create

Complete the form

  • Add the Group – nsw-BYOD@dfe-1234
  • Workstation Address – Check
  • Client Name – BYODAccessPoint@dfe-1234
  • IP Address – 10.10.10.250
  • Workstation Name – <<Optional Add Details>>
  • Comments – Enable BYOD level filtering for the access point address
