Site Bypass


Figure 1.  Example Site Bypass Page

The Site Bypass page (Fig. 1) allows you to specify websites that can bypass the Mako Guardian proxy from the selected Mako.  You do this by entering the IP address or Network of the website in question. A website may use more than one IP address and more than one Network, so multiple entries may be required.  Also, a website may change its IP address(es) over time, which would make it necessary to update these entries.

No content filtering and no web reporting will be performed on these IP addresses.

You will also need to change users’ browser settings to not use the Mako Guardian proxy when accessing these specific websites.
