Hi Dennis,

I think you can't see this for privacy reasons. You can only see applications such as facebook or youtube. Also you can see how much html traffic a user has used.

These are features that you would not expect to see in a edge, access layer device such as an AP or switch.

Succinctly, you are looking in the wrong place.

You should instead look to a modern, feature rich firewall, such as those available from Palo Alto.

Thanks for the replies...
At a recent Aerohive Users group the Aerohive folks said that I could. Perhaps they were not clear that I wanted to track to a specific site... 
I do have a Sonicwall firewall with a plugin that should allow me to do this also. However, it needs a PC and some setup and we are a mac school. I was hoping that I could do it thru the Aerohives.

Your SonicWALL firewall is the correct place to get this information.

Application Visibility is what they were maybe referring to. However, I would recommend as Nick said, utilize your current endpoint/webfilter etc for URL visibility. Barracuda is a good alternative to a more expensive Palo Alto
