Question

We want to configure Web Content Filtering, but before we decide which categories to Allow or Deny we want to see which category/categories a few common web-pages belong to. Is there a way to quickly check this?

Answer

On the Clavister web-page there is a section that can be used to lookup the category of whatever URL that is typed in. It is located at the following location.

Note: There is a delay on how often/frequent queries can be made in quick succession.
