    Default Blocking IMVU

    Does anyone know the ports or protocol I need to whack in order to block IMVU?

    I've blocked the website, but I don't know if that alone will suffice.

    yeah, that's a tough one. . . I would guess that it wouldn't suffice alone. . .
    I looked around on the net, looks like it uses a large port range from 4100-4800 (I saw it on a forum so no promises. . ) that might work blocking those on outbound connections.
    It looks like it uses port 80 as well. . so if you could find the domain that the client uses that might work as well.

    Add URL 208.71.159.140-150 IP under your Webfilter Block List, that is of course, if you also already added IMVU.COM to the same list
    Also add Alexa.com to your cookie list (block) under Spyware Blocker.

    That should prevent communication and time it out. Hope it helps

    ps. Don't forget to do a manual reboot after you have added these.

    Thanks for the help.

    Hopefully, I'll hear complaints ... then I'll know it's working.

    Untangle must be one of the few companies that gauges its success on the number of "complaints from unsatisfied users." Little do they know...

    Complaints from the rank and file are generally coincided with compliments from the powers that be. There are times when I love my job and the cries of anguish are nothing compared to the very visible gains in productivity.

    Exactly my point ... if those underneath complain, then those overhead will commend.

    It's a sad state of affairs, but required in the case of IMVU. I would never suggest that sort of network access mentality to all protocols, though. IMVU is particularly hoggy and a complete waste of an afternoon (IMHO).

    Now, shutting off XBox services ... that's just harrassment.
