The purpose of this article is to provide a workaround for the issue in which we receive the HTTP error code 406 when trying to download the WebFilter database.


  • In order to prevent this issue from happening, a manual download of the database must be performed by using the following commands:


#conf t


#(config content-filter)bluecoat

#(config bluecoat)get-now

  • After the download is complete, the status should appear as OK in the GUI.
