ASA, blocking long URL access

Hi Forum,

I can't seem to find an answer to my ASA blocks access to long URL. below is the only http filtering configurations I can find on my firewall. What is the default settings? How can I activate it, y at - there a better way?

I use ASA5500.

Thank you very much


http-map inbound_http

content-length min 100 max 2000 action open

content-type-checking match-req-rsp action open

allow the action header-MaxLength request 100

Open the max-uri-length 100 action


You have any filter http commands and orders url server configured? If so, there is an option to truncate long URLS.

In addition, bugs seem to exist in the http inspection engine in versions after 7.1 (2). Try to disable the http inspection and see if the problem goes away.

  • iFrames and blocks direct URL access to certain pages

    I've been designing a site in Muse using Widgets (iFrames) of the Composition. Because the site that I create is quite large with updates and frequent changes, I won't be publish and download the entire site, whenever I have make a change or add content (like muse seems to force me to do, even when I change a single image). So as a work, within the iFrame, I insert HTML that links to a separate "mini site" Muse in another folder in my folder root (in a manner similar to adding a blog or Twitter feed into a Widget). This way I can make changes and don't have to publish and download small pieces of the larger site. These mini-sites conducted small, contents are incomplete in regard to corporate image and layout of Web site and I don't want people to access it directly, but I DON'T want the search engines to access information in their breast.

    So how can I block a public direct URL access to the "mini-sites" without blocking the site parent to access and display them in the iFrame? I want the user to be redirected to the site parent if a picks up more search engine "mini site" content, rather than being directed to the page itself.

    I know that I won't be able to this in the Muse, using Dreamweaver or any other editor is fine. I'm not fluent HTML, PHP, CSS, or any other language, but I can muddle my way through it, if I have the direction.

    I hesitate now to present a link to the test site I've created (even if I could do it on request), so I hope I have explained myself well enough.

    Thanks for any help.

    This has nothing to do with the Muse or elsewhere in the HTML. You would have to put in place a whole bunch of rules server side to transfer users and extract content from specific referents, but in the end, there are a lot of mumbo jumbo for nothing. Search engines can pretend to be browsers browsers can pretend to be stupid to caterpillars and even obscured links can be followed in any way. You should just press F12 and cross browser debugging console. I'm afraid that it is something that you really can do it properly, using a dynamic system where you can use the ID session PHP, cookies, or personalised channels encoded in your URL. In your scenario current all you can do is to use .htaccess and robots.txt files to block search engines to dig in your records, but they still don't sign up under your main domain name and not necessarily pass. On the other hand, since the search engine still has the URL of the folder, little sleuths like me could pull off, stick it in a separate window and then apply the view of the folder for the site when possible or browse your files based on the URL in the iFrame code or their names. What you want is fundamentally mutually exclusive and goes against the work of sites HTML static how.


  • WRT160Nv3 problem with blocking traffic through Access Restrictions


    I want something very simple. Block Youtube. I go in "Access Restrictions", choose a name for the policy 1, turn it on, choose the pc in the list of pc, but then...

    If a click Deny, all other options will be disabled (grayed out, do not click or write on them).

    Therefore, I can't put the URL I want (youtube).

    I tried to write the url with "allow" and then change to 'decline', but it crashes ALL the traffic.

    Not good.

    So, how can I make a new policy just to block this URL?

    Is it normal that when I click and choose "Refuse" all is disabled afterwards?

    Thanks in advance.

    Kind regards


    for the internet access policy DENY wants to restrict internet access for hours and days specified. This may block ALL internet traffic to the said Annex. Web site blocking of URLS, blocking by keyword and the applications would then NOT AVAILABLE as long as the computers would have access to internet at first if you have such a policy is disabled.

    for your case, you can try to turn on the restriction of access to the internet to ALLOW then specify under website by URL blocking. This would have internet access all the time (if you have the DAILY deadline), computers or during certain days and hours but do NOT have access to youtube.

  • E4200 block a URL on the WHOLE network

    I'm trying to block two URL on the network through my E4200. I'm having a devil of a time to do this, I have connexiona my router via the browser (web Setup) (because I think that Cisco Connect on the Mac is the worst software ever written.) And I go to the page of Access Restrictions. I understand that I have to use the part of the strategy of Internet access to do some more advanced than the Parental control settings.

    I have a name for my rule, well. Activate it. Go to the page of PC applied. Open the page for entering the MAC and IP addresses. I'm going to the range of IP addresses and buried in the numbered box 01; to which in my case is the enitre network. Save the settings and close this window.

    I do not restrict access to refuse because it seems to block the entire network set.

    So I'm going to the blocking of the website by address URL option and enter the URL to block.

    I do not have anything with the Applications blocked because I don't want to block an application or a specific service. If I click on save settings.

    And yet when I go to the URL to block it does not work! Why is this?

    Here is a screenshot of my settings:


    What I am doing wrong?

    Your settings are correct, except that you must leave the slash at the end of the URL.

    The deny/allow buttons are for internet access, which is why when you clicked on refuse, you have lost the connection to the internet.

  • No Internet connectivity with ASA 5505 VPN remote access


    I configured ASA 5505 for remote access VPN to allow a remote user to connect to the Remote LAN officce. VPN works well, users can access Office Resource of LAN with sahred etc., but once they have connected to the VPN, they are unable to browse the internet?

    Internet navigation stop working as soon as their customer VPN connect with ASA 5505 t, once they are disconnected from VPN, once again they can browse the internet.

    Not ASA 5505 blocking browsing the internet for users of VPN? Is there anything else that I need congfure to ensure that VPN users can browse the internet?

    I have to configure Split Tunnleing, NATing or routing for VPN users? or something else.

    Thank you very much for you help.




    What you run into is a default behavior of the ASA in which she will not route traffic back on the same interface on which he arrived. So if the VPN traffic arrived on the external interface the ASA does not want to send back on the external interface for Internet access.

    You have at least 2 options:

    -You can configure split tunneling, as you mention, and this would surf the Internet to continue during the use of VPN.

    -You can set an option on the ASA to allow traffic back on the same interface (this is sometimes called crossed). Use the command

    permit same-security-traffic intra-interface

    You can only avoid this error by running web process (which normally should give an answer in a few seconds) not that lasts more than 5 minutes to produce a response.

    You can probably do the timeout of Apache for a long URL length sooner or later - but that will not solve the problem when a web page response takes several minutes (or even hours) to generate.

    The real problem is the real web process itself which takes so long to produce a response. Juggle with the timeout on the web server does the symptom and not the cause.

You can transfer iTunes downloads to another account, or to merge accounts - all downloads are permanently associated with the account that has downloaded (if only this account can potentially re-download purchases, downloads of updates of its applications, authorize such purchases on iTunes from the computer, and make in-app purchases in them).

  • How can I block the users access to microsoft office?

    How can I block the users access to microsoft office?

    You must set "" permission to run on each of the Microsoft Office programs (word.exe, excel.exe, powerpnt.exe, etc.) such that the group 'Administrators' and the SYSTEM is allowed to run.  To do this, you do a right click on the .exe file, select 'Properties', then click on the 'Security' tab and change security as you wish.

    If you do not have a 'Security' tab, then it is because you have XP Home Edition, or if you have XP Pro with active Simple file sharing.  For XP Home, you must boot mode safe (repeatedly tap F8 at startup key) and login as an administrator to access this tab.  For XP Pro, follow the instructions in the following article:

  • Necessary to reach the line of Fax Long Distance access code

    I have a HP all-in-one Officejet J4550 Copier-scanner-fax.  My question is how can I send a fax when I need to enter a series of numbers without connection with the fax number to reach a long-distance line?  It's a long story, but I mainly long distance access via a calling card.  I first call a toll-free number and enter a 12-digit before I can enter the fax number.  The Officejet does not seem to have provisions for this.  She has just one field for the fax number.

    I was able to answer my own question by using the method of trial and error.  It turns out that you can use the machine all-in-one HP Officejet J4550 fax 'manual', after all.  Forget the software "Solution Center".  I wrote just to the top of the other fax manually on the phone machine, put in all my codes required.  When I got another fax to the line, I put the Officejet key 'FAX (black and white)' using the arrow (adjacent to the 'OK' button '), responsible for my fax in the feeder and you press '1' at the prompt to send the fax.  (By pressing '2' will tell the Officejet to receive a fax.)  It's good to know, especially for the time that you can not by software.
