Not quite sure the question, but as to the second part… The SSL 100 WebUI performs faster than it did before v3.1.2. NOT, faster in comparison to the SSL 560.
Bennett Lu says
Yes, you can use IE9 to both web UI and portal.

Hilarious……they can do all this amazing stuff but after years they still cant release support for webblocker for rdp users considering a whole host of companies now employ remote desktop………thanksfor making my life hard watchguard
Corey Nachreiner says
We are certainly not here to make your life hard, but I’m not quite sure I understand the feature request you are describing, “WebBlocker for rdp users”? Do you mean applying WebBlocker settings to people who use a Terminal server?
If that is the case, do know we do have a Terminal Server agent. If you install that on the terminal server, and setup authentication so your terminal servers folks have to authenticate (via our java app) before they browse, then I think they can all have different WebBlocker policies.
