    Allowed site being blocked by smoothwall

    I'm trying to unblock a certain portion of a site (ie photobucket)

    I've allowed the urls necessary to view particular albums, yet in the logs its still saying denied for the EXACT url I'm allowed.

    The allow rule is the 4th rule processed, there are no 'Deny' rules above it.

    Daft thing is, some of the URLs (i.e the s825.photobucket.com) are showing as 'Exception site match' which is correct, but the rest (i.e i825.photobucket.com) are being denied even though they have been allowed in the same policy as the others.

    We do have photo sharing sites blocked, but surely allowing these would override the block? It sort of works, we get the 'album' view but no photos.

    Edit: Bah, sorted it! URL was truncated in the 'live' view log by one character and I never noticed!
