Not possible to block youtube traffic from youtube app in Instant

Hi guys,

 

I am trying to block youtube traffic on my Instant AP. I was able to block youtube traffic just selecting youtube from the services drop down menu, although this only works for youtube traffic from www.youtube.com.

When I open my youtube app I can see videos as always. I have added two more rules, streaming from application-category and streaming-media from web-category, but I can still see videos from the youtube app.

Is there anyway to block traffic from this app? I am running InstantOS 6.4.4.8-4.2.4.3_56707. Many thanks in advance.

 

Regards,

Julián

That worked for me, youtube app will simply not play the videos.

I have not tried it on that version of firmware you mentioned though.

I suggest opening a tac case

Hi Pasquale,

 

Did you try with the three rules simultaneously or just with youtube from services?

What InstantOS version did you try on?

Re: Not possible to block youtube traffic from youtube app in Instant

it was a while back to be honest and I believe i was in the 4.2.1 code train..

I do not recall enabling the other two but i cannot be sure.

I can attempt to re-test when i find some time.

Hi Julián,

I was able to test using an IAP-103 with standard software release version: ArubaInstant_Pegasus_6.4.4.8-4.2.4.6_58505

The behavior on a laptop is the video will not play (website loads)

The behavior on a smartphone with the Youtube app is like you described, the videos play.

My ACL on my IAP looks as follows:

all dhcp to all
deny application youtubeeducation to all
deny application youtube to all
allow all

If I add deny streaming to all above both youtube ACLs, it still allows me to stream youtube from the APP.

I suggest you open a TAC case.
