Ingredients

Web Content Filter - In creating a Web Content Filter within FileWave Central it changes the UDID and is unsuccessful in deployment. The issue can be resolved by re-creating the Web Content Filter in FileWave Anywhere as a workaround. The issue should be resolved in the next release. See Known Issues
