Cannot block a website

Grasshopper

I've add a website to "Blocked Sites" in Parent Controls on my Bluecurve gateway.  I have "Managed Sites" enabled and my computer is not trusted. Yet.... I can still access the website - is there a setting I need to change?

Thanks!

Thanks, I tried restarting the gateway and it made it work.  I added a new site and that didn't work, so I guess you have to restart the gateway each time.

I guess that's ok but it would be good to know that it is necessary.

Maybe try and give the computer you are trying to block a static IP, and wait up to another day to see if the rule kicks in.

Alternatively, give the Blue Curve Home app a try. It has pretty powerful and more user-friendly controls. It can also be accessed by internet.shaw.ca from a computer.
