Is it possible to block Facebook gaming but NOT Facebook itself?
jacobp Newbie ✭
I have a pair of 2700's. I would like to block the gaming aspect of Facebook but not the main site itself. I don't see any signatures in App Control for the gaming portion of it. When viewing a stream, the URL is facebook.com/streamername/videos/randomnumbers. The homepage appears to be facebook.com/gaming. I've added facebook.com/gaming to the Forbidden URI list but it still continues to allow access. Does this require client DPI-SSL?
And that doesn't address the streaming portion of it anyway since that uses the main URL facebook.com. Is something like this possible?

Hello @jacobp may you have found these signatures:
that are from application within facebbok?
Sorry, I should've been more clear. The streaming aspect of Facebook is what I want to block, where people watch other people play games. It's Facebook's version of twitch.tv if you're familiar with that.
Have you tested the following two signatures? (App Feature Video 1&2)
I did try those but had no luck with them. We were still able to watch streams with those two signatures blocked.
After posting this question, I realized that this is no different than streams on YouTube. There's probably no way to differentiate between streams and regular videos on there either. So this is just something we have to live with, and that's okay. This was just a question I was throwing out there to see if it was possible. I appreciate the input though!
