Click OK to save.
Navigate to the Firewall | App Rules page and create the following App Rule referencing the above Match Object. Make sure Connection Side and Direction are set to Both.
On the App Rules page enable check box Enable App Rules.
Enabling Client DPI-SSL
Note: Before enabling Client DPI-SSL, administrators must be aware that Client DPI-SSL will proxy all outgoing SSL connections. To this end, SonicWall will re-sign the SSL certificates passing to hosts. This in turn will trigger certificate errors in the browsers. To avoid these errors, import the SonicWall DPI-SSL CA certificate as a trusted Root CA into the browser's (or the computer's) certificate store. For more information, see: Distributing the Default SonicWall DPI-SSL CA certificate to client computers using Group Policy
Navigate to the DPI-SSL | Client SSL page.
Enable check box Enable SSL Client Inspection.
Enable check box Intrusion Prevention.
Click on Accept at the top to save the changes.
Testing Test by accessing a website in the OpenDoor browser.
