How to Schedule Content Filtering

Vigor routers with Content Filtering facilities can have a schedule attached to some of the facilities, for example so that a rule blocking access to email services is not active at 'lunchtime' so that staff are permitted to check their personal email. There are three stages to this:

  1. Make sure the Time is set correctly on the router:
     
     
  2. Set the time period you want the filter to apply to in a time rule:
     
    Note that the 'action' field has no relevance to this type of application.
     
  3. Apply your schedule to the filtering function:
     
    The filtering will apply only during the time set in Schedule No.1. In this example, therefore, you will be able to visit hotmail at 1pm, not not at 10am.
