Setting Download Options

Note
Advanced download options are not available for Endpoint Web Control.

The Configuration > Global Policy > Download Options page allows you to set whether the appliance will allow or block downloading of large files and whether the appliance will allow or block downloading of unscannable files. Unscannable files are downloaded files that cannot be scanned for viruses because of corruption or encryption. You can also remove the authorization for users to download PUAs that had been previously allowed on the Search > User Submissions > PUAs page.

  • To set whether the appliance will allow or block downloading of files larger than 800 MB:
    • To allow downloading, select the Allow large files (>800M) that are not scanned check box, and click Apply.
    • To block downloading, clear the Allow large files (>800M) that are not scanned check box, and click Apply.
    Note
    The Web Appliance determines the file size from the HTTP content-length header, so the option that you set will be applied based on that indication, not the actual file size.
  • To set whether the appliance will allow or block downloading of unscannable files, select the Allow unscannable files check box, and click Apply.
    • To allow downloading, select the Allow unscannable files check box, and click Apply.
    • To block downloading, clear the Allow unscannable files check box, and click Apply.
  • To remove access to a previously authorized PUA, select the check box to the right of the PUA to which you want to remove access, click Delete to remove the PUA, and click Apply.

    The selected PUA is removed from the Authorized PUAs list.
