How to tell if Shield is working.

RogerC
With the original firmware Shield would show a screen saying a web page was blocked.  Since upgtading to V 1.51 SP 1 there hasn't been any site blocked screens.  The status log is working.  How do I tell if Shield is blocking anything.

How depends largely on your laptop OS and the level of validation needed. Are you using Shield as Router/Bridge? Are you using openvpn etfc?


There are a number of ways to test is SNORT (IDS) is working, check https://www.google.com/search?q=test+snort&gws_rd=ssl .

The Webfilter only works well in Router mode, for Ads and Malicious. Ads you can check to go to a ads filled page w/o an ad blocker on your browser.
