Hi Vicky,

Thanks for you response but we are not using firewall features in our environment and looking the same with SEP AV AS policy.

How can the same possible?

The Blocking of Websites could be either done via Network Threat Protection (Firewall) and IPS Signatures and you would require the same features installed on Symantec Endpoint Protection Client as well.

Hope this helps!!

I have this problem with both the IPS and the firewall rules not blocking when combined with a proxy server in between. How do I block traffic to DNS Domain e.g * when that in fact is filtered by and probably offered by the proxy server?

Yes this doesn't work so good. I've tested this many times.

Set the dest=(0)

See if that works
