Specific Site Issues

Summary

Google has changed the way Google Apps & Gmail work, so it's not possible to tell the difference anymore.  This means that if your district uses Google Apps, it is not possible to force the students to have moderated or controlled email while at school.

 

Allowing Google Apps for Education (including Gmail)

First, add mail.google.com as unfiltered by going to:


  1. Go to "Website Filtering" -> "Website Access"
  2. Select the filter set 
  3. Click on "Add a Site"
  4. Website Address > mail.google.com
  5. Reason for Change > Allow Access to Google
  6. Filtering > Unfiltered
  7. Port Access > Select Add Port Access
  8. Select additional filter sets if needed
  9. Click on Submit
  10. Repeat steps 3 to 9 for each site on the list below.
  11. Commit Changes and Restart
mail.google.com
accounts.google.com
accounts.youtube.com
www.google.com
clients1.google.com
clients2.google.com
clients3.google.com
clients4.google.com
clients5.google.com
clients6.google.com
dl.google.com
dl-ssl.google.com
sites.google.com
tools.google.com
pack.google.com
safebrowsing.google.com
safebrowsing-cache.google.com
google-analytics.com
googleapis.com
gstatic.com
googleusercontent.com
omahaproxy.appspot.com
cros-omahaproxy.appspot.com
gweb-gettingstartedguide.appspot.com


Please note that adding an allowed Port 443 SSL rule for www.google.com will NOT give your students access to https://www.google.com. We have added an additional filter in SecureSchool to redirect any user that tries to access https://www.google.com directly to http://www.google.com.
