Websense Web Security Gateway Anywhere
Replace string: The new text that you want to substitute for the original text in

Sun Java System and hybrid filtering
If your organization uses Sun Java System directory, user and group information
cannot be sent to the hybrid service.
Novell eDirectory and hybrid filtering
If your organization uses Novell eDirectory, select Settings > Hybrid
Configuration > Shared User Data to refine the way that Directory Agent searches
the directory and packages user and group information for the hybrid service.
1. Under Root Context for Hybrid Filtering Users, provide a root Context to use
when gathering user and group data from the directory. Narrow the context to
increase speed and efficiency.
It is best to provide a context that includes only users filtered by the hybrid
2. To verify that the context that you have entered uses valid syntax and exists in the
directory, click Test Context.
3. Under Syncronize User Data, verify the Name or IP address of the Sync Service
machine and the Port used for Sync Service communication (by default, 55832).
These fields are populated automatically, but can be updated manually, if needed.
4. Click Test Connection to verify that Directory Agent can send data to Sync
Service. The test may take a minute or more.
If the connection is made, a success message is displayed.
If the connection cannot be made, verify the IP address or host name of the
Sync Service machine and the communication port. Also verify that the Sync
Service machine is on, that Sync Service is running, and that your network
firewall permits connections on the Sync Service port.
5. Under Directory Search, indicate how far below the root context Directory Agent
looks for users.
Select One Level to limit searches to the root context and one level below.
Select All Levels to expand searches to the root context and all levels below.
You can further refine the data that is sent to the hybrid service by defining patterns, or
search filters, used to remove duplicate or otherwise unwanted entries from the
directory search results.
Click Optimize Search Results to see the current search filters, or to create new
search filters using wildcards or regular expressions. There are 2 types of search
filters: one to filter user entries and one to filter group entries.
