Does anyone know whether it is possible to WCCP redirect rtsp:// urls to IronPort for scanning? Our users have found that they can e-mail themselves rtsp:// links from home to circumvent IronPort blocking streaming media sites.

WCCP redirects based on TCP ports, so if the RTSP link is using port 80, it will hit the WSA. By default, RTSP uses port 554, so you'd need to redirect that port via WCCP.

Currently, the WSA does not support RTSP decoding and does not listen on port 554. I have not been made aware of a time frame for when this will be implemented.
