  • Forefront TMG Blocking msn messenger

    Here i am again.

    Everything is running great and working good.

    Now i have a question on how to block the MSN messenger that hotmail.com has build into the page.

    So when a user logins into hotmail.com they get a sort of embedded web messenger from msn.

    I want to know how i can block that.

    If anyone knows this it would be great.

    Why not blocking hotmail completely?

    in the past it was webmessenger.msn.com and messenger.live.com, not sure if they embedded those urls, but you might give it a shot.

        I could block hotmail.com.

        But it is a allowed website, they need to use hotmail for mails and files.

        I havent told it yet, but this tmg is on a school and sono they are getting rid of that education email. so only solution is hotmail.

        thats why hotmail is allowed, but chatting is not.

        I already have the Category Chat in the blocking rule. But it is not blocking the messenger, because i saw a student using it.

            No i havent, i will try those when there are not many students at school. So i can test is freely.

            With those in mind.

            Are there any other ways to block something like this.

              Have you tried to block them using HTTP Signatures ?

                I have not tried HTTP ones. Depending on what you mean with those.

                you mean the urls that are given in this topic?

                I also have most protocols blocked but im not sure if they are even wroking it should block SSH and FTP but you still can use web ftp by just typing in you ftp url. Unless its FTP using something like FileZilla.
