    Default Block MSN File transfers

    HI All
    I've been searching for an effective way to block msn file transfers. So far, I've tried entering this signature in protocol control
    ^(ver [ -~]*msnftp\x0d\x0aver msnftp\x0d\x0ausr|method msnmsgr

    but I could still send and receive files. Is there something I missed?

    THanks for any help.

    nice - did you write that yourself?

    are you sure that regex is correct?

    when you added it did you check block and log?

    No, I saw it on the l4 protocol detection site I think it was. I just copied and pasted it in. I did check the logs after and saw nothing related to msn file transfers although I checked block and log.

    Default Can Untangle 6.0 Block MSN Live Messenger File Transfer

    Hi All,

    I want to allow my user chatting only, and block out File Transfer. Inside the Untangle 6.0 protocol module, I see the option and have ticked it. But file transfer can still work.

    Cut it off at the port.

    MSN chat uses ports 6891-6900 and TCP protocol.

    See if that works.
