  • When proxies synchronize their status ( each 15 minutes) with the meta, they will replicate the category content locally.
  • Go to an Artica Proxy client
  • You will see the new added category trough Artica Meta under “Your categories”.

The difference between a personal category is you cannot remove it locally
and you cannot see it’s content.

  • Now you can affect this category to a web filtering rule as white-list or black list.
