Q. Do I need to reconfigure my browser to use the URL filtering provided in GajShield?

A. GajShield supports two modes of operations

  1. Transparent Mode
  2. Proxy Mode

In Transparent Mode, you do not have to change the settings on your browser. URL filtering will be applied for all http traffic to the Internet provided all the traffic to the Internet is passed through the firewall.

In Proxy Mode, you need to point the proxy settings of the browser to the firewall. Here URL filtering will be applied to all browsing traffic, irrespective of the port.
