        Hi,

         

        After a week of entitlement issue and undocumented requirements discovering, I finally succeeded to run FilterDataProvider & FilterContentProvider. However I only see NEFilterSocketFlow (testing with safari on iPad 10.1.1, xcode 8.1).

        URL and endpoints are not present on new flow. As a workaround, I ask for more outbound data and then get the endpoints and parse the http request to get the URL. Using this technique I can make the connection hang on blocked/remediated access but can't get a block page, I suppose that it should be normal as it would mess with the original response.

        I also supposed that if I could get a NEFilterBrowserFlow as the code suggest, it would be a lot easier.

         

        I tried setting browser filtering to true and socket filtering to false -> no flow, so I left both flags to true.

         

        Can anyone have an idea why I get wrong type of flows ?

          Double check that you’ve set filterBrowsers in your NEFilterProviderConfiguration.

              In the logs :

               

              starting with configuration: {
                  name = <24-char-str>
                  identifier = 40403B16-658F-4FD4-B5F1-76D38A9C2067
                  applicationName = SimpleTunnel
                  application = io.voltdox.SimpleTunnel2
                  grade = 1
                  contentFilter = {
                      enabled = YES
                      provider = {
                          pluginType = io.voltdox.SimpleTunnel2
                          serverAddress = <10-char-str>

                          filterBrowsers = YES
                          filterSockets = YES
                      }
                  }
              }

                  I don't use any vpn configuration, I'm only looking to filter access to website based on url rules and category database for entreprise control

                    In the logs :

                    OK then.  Well, beyond that I’ve got nothing.  When I brought up my own filter provider test project (from scratch, not based on SimpleTunnel), I got browser flows without any difficulty.  I can think of anything (other than the filterBrowsers property, which you’ve already ruled out) that would cause you to get socket flows but not browser flows.
