Deny Access To Gmail Chat


Recommended Posts


Can we get a Moderator to move this to the Endpoint section. :)


According to my source here : hxxp://stackoverflow.com/questions/3452161/which-ports-does-xmpp-use


You could create a blocking rule for tcp and udp on ports 5222, 5223, 5269, & 5298.

This is the port XMPP uses for communication.

This may have the effect you want where Google talk and Gmail instant messaging traffic do not complete and get blocked, however Gmail itself will still be fully functional as it will be using the standard mail ports for traffic.

You could make the suggested rules in a temporary policy and deploy it to one workstation and test and see.

Then edit your current policy and finalize the rule. :P
