Hi,

Need advice on how to allow facebook in ASA firewall, but at the same time block the streaming access in facebook?

Any guidance/advice is much appreciated.

Thanks!

So your saying you want to allow facebook but disallow videos that are on facebook? What do you mean by block streaming access?

Yes, correct.
I want to allow facebook but disallow videos that are in facebook.

Do you have any idea to do this in the simplest way?

It's going to be a problem for you because most of the video on facebook is actually hosted by someone else and is not actually streaming(udp). For example youtube. Basically most of the video on facebook is just a link to a video host. Therefore you have to block all links in order to make this work. Your best bet is to go with an option like dyndns and set it up to block as many known video hosts as you can find. To be honest however I would block facebook outright.


Someone else may know a trick that I don't but it looks like you have a problem on your hands.

Agreed with Nevins

or maybe you can use shaping device to shape the video bandwidth to the minimum usage.

On a side not you may want to block all flash on that site which is possible in many browsers.

Try this : lifehacker.com/#!5533694/use-internet-ex...-flash-block-feature

You can use it to block flash on some sites.
