If you have specific questions about getting URL/Website monitoring working, feel free to post them here in Thwack.  URL monitoring is one of the things we do a whole lot of with APM and I would be happy to try and answer any questions you have.

OUR goal.. We are using Barracuda as a Web Gateway;

I know we have a particular site filtered.. ie.. naughty cant to there site..

I am trying to create a monitor that will show that we get access denied to 'prove' that it is monitored and not allowed.

I have basically the same monitor "WEB Link" " Generic Web ..." Port 80 and 8080 some using the proxy and some not..

all when i test come back GREEN " Testing on node www.photobucket.com: finished successfully with 'Available' status "

this site is blocked i want to see DENIED... what am i doing wrong..

When you go to the site using a web browser on your Orion system, are you able to get to it?  When you go to it with your browser, put in exactly what Orion is checking "http://gambling.com:8080" for example.

Also, when you don't use the proxy and you use the default settings such as "http://${IP}:${PORT}/" what happens?

I have tried this 100 ways from friday.. I have a site we blocked. (photobucket) and  a site that is allowed (HP.com).. The two sites produce the exact same results..  When I access the blocked site via IE.  We get the denied screen.. Barracuda denies it.

But the APM monitor see no difference between sites.. GRRR frustating what am I doing wrong.. ? or does this not care that the site is blocked..?

Can you right click on that page and select "View Source"? Then reply to this post and copy/paste the page source code into the message body and I'll take a look at it and see if we can't figure out why this isn't working.

I'm aware of that issue but we can search raw HTML or Java Script on content in the page. Can you post the page source code by viewing it in your browser, right clicking and selecting "View Page Source'? (actual verbiage may differ for different browsers)  Then post the raw HTML in the body of a follow-up post or as an attachment to that post. I'll take a look at it and see if there's something else we can key off of.

As alternative, our new product SEUM can handle what you're looking to do simply and easily out of the box. I recommend you contact your Solarwinds sales rep, or email sales@solarwinds.com to get more information or download a trial and see for yourself.
