    Unblock Prezi in Websense

    Hi,

    I'm banging my head against the wall trying to allow access to Prezi for our pupils.

    We are using Web Security 7.7. I've added the following to an exception

    https://prezi.com
    http://prezi-a.akamaihd.net/
    Prezi - Ideas matter.
    Prezi - Ideas matter.
    http://cloudfront.net
    http://cloudfront.net:443
    http://s3.amazonaws.com
    http://s3.amazonaws.com:443
    http://akamaihd.net
    http://akamaihd.net:443
    http://cdn.optimizely.com
    http://cdn.optimizely.com:443

    Pupils can get to the login page but after entering their credentials a 'page cannot be displayed' error occurs. (Not the Websense block page)

    Can anyone help?

    Many thanks

    Sarah

    do a report on what is blocked using a test user, investigative reports.

    Many thanks, that really helped, I was able to see that the 'Personal Network Storage and Backup' protocol was blocked and not allowing Prezi to run.
