Anyone sussed a way of blocking the msn chat client. First thing i
tried was blocking port: 1863
iptables -A FORWARD -p tcp --dport 1863 -j REJECT
iptables -A FORWARD -p tcp -s 10.0.0.0/24 -d messenger.hotmail.com -j
and then iptables -A FORWARD -p tcp -s 10.0.0.0/24 -d 126.96.36.199/18 -j
And loads of other combos as well.
Just had a google around. And it turns out that the little bastard
will continue to probe for other ports when denied access to 1863. It
can also http tunnel!
I could drop an acl on squid. But i would prefer to use netfilter as i
can then run it a cron job with my other firewalll scripts. Its been
requested that i limit the times that people can chat.
