Hi all, I thought this would be fairly straight forward, so I wanted to block chat (aim & msn messenger) on a Layer 7 level for certain PC's. I thought that by blocking it in such a manner that the router would block the protocol, hence I would not have to worry about blocking ports (ie: 8190-819x, or specified ports users can override within the aim client software). I tried doing so by selecting IPP2P and choosing aim from the Layer 7 drop down list. Obviously I put everyday/all day and specified the PC's by their static assigned addresses. All of this seemed pretty much straight forward, except it didn't work. I have an older version of aim client I installed, and sure enough I can log into chat with a temp username that I created. (not aim express, actual aim client). So, am I doing something wrong? Is the function broken? Any advice is appreciated!!!
