Blocking Streaming Videos using ACL

Hi Experts,

We require to block all sorts of streaming videos from being viewed from the Internet in our network.

Please can someone advise if we need to block any specific port for this or is there any other way of doing it.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Imran.

Re: Blocking Streaming Videos using ACL

If you know the IP adresses of the sites that your internal users are trying to access. Then you can block that addresses with an access list. That can be done running the "nslookup" in the cmd

of the PC.

For example: "nslookup yahoo.com" will give you the IP addresses of yahoo. Then you can

block the access to that addresses setting the following ACL's:

access-list deny ip any host 161.108.212.27

access-list deny ip any host 66.218.71.198

..etc

If you know the ports that the applications are using you can block them. That can be done applying the ACL's but specifying the destination ports you want to block. For example, If you want to block some well known ports for streaming (see the list below) you just have to do the

following:

access-list deny tcp any any eq 554

access-list deny udp any any eq 554

etc...

List of steraming well known ports:

UDP 2979 H.263 Video Streaming

UDP 1790 Narrative Media Streaming Protocol

UDP 1755 ms-streaming

UDP 1736 street-stream

UDP 554 Real Time Stream Control Protocol

UDP 537 Networked Media Streaming Protocol
