RE: Blocking Internet Gaming

  • From: James

What kind of games specifically?

Like online Java games (Bejeweled)?  Or games like Quake, Unreal, Tribes
etc?

The latter is much easier, just block all traffic to/from the default
ports which use them.  A quick google would yield what they use.  I'll
give you a quick hint and say Quake3 is 29760-5 or so and Tribes1/2 is
28000-28005 or so.

Does anybody know of any good software or way to restrict Internet
gaming on
a corporate Network?
