How to Disable SonicWALL Content Filter Service

Sonicwall Content Filter Service allows administrators to block certain websites within a company, organization or academic institution. You can prevent your employees or students from browsing certain websites that are either inappropriate or distracting in an workplace environment. However, if there are certain necessary websites that are blocked accidentally, you can disable the filter service for those particular sites.
