    Hi @samaj,

    Thank you for visiting SonicWall Community.

    You can use CFS, App Control and App rules to block social websites. Below is one that can give you YouTube blocking using app control feature.

    If you are planning to block websites, please use Content Filter and to block applications use app control or app rules.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi @samaj,

    We do not have app control signatures for gaana and Wynk I guess. So, we'll have to to use CFS on the SonicWall to block these music websites/apps or perform a packet capture on the SonicWall by sending these website traffics via it and find the pattern of the traffic, finally create an app rule for precise blocking of such websites.

    CFS should definitely be able to block the websites. If you are facing any difficulties, then approach our support team for help.

    Hi @Saravanan

    thanks for your reply

    yes I tried by CFS but its not working

    app rule is working but....not satisfied!

    so.. I only able to block the sites/apps which is present in App Control signature database right?

    and what about sites/apps that are not available in the signature database?(ex., and many more...)

    looking forward.
