Webblocker & Surfcontrol 2

On 17-12-2005 I wrote about the link between Webblocker & Surfcontrol.
I seams that Watchguard now has it's own page at Surfcontrol.

The categories you can select when you are submitting a site are exactly the same as on the Watchguard. How nice!

I'm a little off topic here, but was wondering if you have any thoughts on a bug I'm trying to deal with:

I am the sysadmin in a school where all the students have laptops. I have an Firebox X700 and am using WebBlocker. Kids have figured out that any site that has a secure certificate can be accessed on HTTPS and bypass the WebBlocker controls.

A recent glance at my traffic showed me I had 3 http connections and 297 https.

Any thoughts on making this a useful firewall and not a thousand dollar doorstop?

If I wanted to setup a web cache residing on my local SAN that my using could query via proxy, how would I implement something like this on a Watchguard x550e w/ Pro v11.3.2 with software:Fireware XTM Pro. Any ideas appreciated.

Thanks
Dana
