Have you ever faced a situation of blocking particular URL or group of URL’s in your network ? If yes, then this tutorial is completely for you. :-)
Checkpoint comes with Application & URL filtering software blade for this job but today i am going to show you how to block a list of URL address in your network with IPS software blade.
You have to understand the basic DNS operations, When user is trying to open a Website then first it’s communicating with a Local DNS server for DNS query then Local DNS server is forwarding this request to particular webserver.

To do so, Open Smart Dashboard on your console PC. Navigate to IPS > Protections > By Type > Application Control > in the right-pane search for Domain Black List and double click on it .
