    Default Everything in Application Control is categorized as TCP or UDP

    Hello. I'm trying to setup Application Control to restrict access to inappropriate sites and gaming sites. This is setup in a home environment. I tried blocking and tagging everything in Application Control so I could then watch the reports and open things as necessary. The biggest issue I'm having right now is that everything is coming through as UDP and TCP rather than being tagged as a specific application and protochain.

    I tried watching some youtube videos and looked at the faqs but I'm still not finding what I have misconfigured.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks

    Youtube uses QUIC which is UDP over HTTPS unless you block QUIC with Web Filter. Either way the session is encrypted so I would recommend using WebFilter instead as that uses SNI to classify HTTPS sessions.

    I'm confused by your response. You are saying not to use Application Control? I was planning on using Web Filter as well, i just happen to be starting with Application Control.

    How can I block everything in application control and see in reports which application/protochain is blocking?

    Right now everything is showing up as UDP or TCP. If I enabling those two, everything passes. If I disable them, nothing passes.

    Thanks

    Perhaps you could post a screen shot of the report you're referring to. Looking at my reports, I'm having trouble picturing what you're seeing.

    In any event, I wouldn't normally block either TCP or UDP. Those are incredibly blunt instruments. Nor would I turn to Application Control to block sites, but to block applications. I think I follow you in the sense that these applications are hosted somewhere, but within Application Control I think in terms of applications, not sites. It's at that point that Web Filter would be my tool of choice.
