hello, Ive been having a hard time trying to block aim. I know it uses different ports but I cannot even get it to block the default... I was wondering what steps I could go about to block AIM. eventually I wanna put it on a timed system to where it turns on at a certain time of day

You'll probably need to set up a traffic policy to block the address of the AIM server. It's likely that the AIM messaging software will automatically use any common port to connect to the server.

I was wondering how exactly would I do that, I dunno how to make traffic policys work with IP's only ports.. I eventually want to set it up so from hours 8am - 6pm AIM is blocked but after that its open for use..


any help would be greatly appreciated...

You'll need to set up a time range first. Something like 8 AM to 6 PM Daily, and give it a meaningful name like "Working hours".

Then in traffic policy, do something like
Name: "Block AIM during working hours"
Source: LAN
Destination: (URL/IP of the AIM server)
Service: Any
Action: Deny
Valid on: "Working hours"

but it doesn't work. i've also has a rule (default) named 'NAT"
source: local,dial in
destination: dial-in,public
service: http,https,ftp,dns,pop3,smtp
action:permit
translation: NAT
this rule created from wizard (first install).

any suggestion how to block certain website if there already has default rule for NAT ?
thanks

Create a new rule that blocks (deny) the site. Make sure that the new rule is placed above the default NAT rule. The first rule (from top to bottom) that matches the traffic will be the rule that handles the data.
