When a user is accessing an allowed page, http://espn.go.com/espn/blogs, and is active in those blogs during allowed time, does the user become blocked is he is still active in those blogs when the schduled allow time changes to blocked? As in we allow users access to some pages during lunch and if they stay on that page after lunch when we block them again will they still have access.
Users claim they circumvent Websense this way. I have yet to test this.
They will be blocked even if they stay on that page.
For most web content, yes, they will be blocked after the policy changes. However, it requires an HTTP get/post request for the block to occur. In some cases, such as web-based radio streams, the only http get/post request occurs during the permitted time. After it is switched to a time in which it would be blocked, the stream continues because there's no further requests. If they make the attempt to start or change the radio station during the blocked time, it will be blocked.
