Enabling content filtering

By default, content filtering is enabled on Citrix ADC appliances running the Citrix ADC operating system 8.0 or above. If you are upgrading an existing appliance from an operating system version earlier than 8.0, you must update the licenses before you can use content filtering, and you may need to enable the content filtering feature itself manually.

Enable content filtering by using the CLI

At the command prompt, type the following commands to enable content filtering and verify the configuration:

-  enable ns feature ContentFiltering  
-  show ns feature  


> enable ns feature ContentFiltering
> show ns feature
