Blocking hotmail messenger

Hi,

I have a simple question (I think), How can I block the messenger services from hotmail and yahoo? I appreciate your response.

Re: Blocking hotmail messenger

Here's a good link on blocking a number of messenging applications:

Apply these port and address filters on your inside interface, that'll stop people being able to connect.

Re: Blocking hotmail messenger

MSN is pretty easy because it uses a fixed port. Some (like Yahoo pager) are difficult because they will find a port that is open. To block the tricky ones, you have to block all of the hosts that they will conect to at the top of your outbound access list (inside interface). I have written one that blocks all of the IM programs using an object-group, so when a new site is discovered, I just add it to the group. For Yahoo IM, I wrote a Perl script to generate a list of all of the yahoo hosts that contained "msg" anywhere in the host name and pre-pend the corresponding IP with network-object host x.x.x.x . Here is the object-group:

object-group network bad_sites
