thanks mr. normis.
but i want to ask you some questions and also i want you to reply by quick examples
1. how can i block downloading specific files like mp3 by using mikrotik firewall ???
2. how can i block a certain sites from its ip or its domain name ???
as i know that you could block the access and the download for any type of files and url by using the web proxy .
because in web-proxy cache you will only block doing cache to the .mp3 files or any other type or url will be added to the cache table .
by adding what you need to block to the access list and use deny for them then the MT will block them .
for example to block the downloading of .mp3 fles , use the following :
/ ip web-proxy access
add src-address=!xxx.xxx.xxx.0/24 url="\\.mp3\$" action=deny comment="" \
add dst-port=23-25 action=deny comment="block telnet & spam e-mail relaying" \
add src-address=!xxx.xxx.xxx.0/24 action=allow comment="" disabled=no
these lines will block all you from accessing the mp3 files and the telnet & spam e-mail .
will be waiting Norims feedback about how to block the download from the firewall .
by theway , last night i add the rule to block the p2p and after that i installed lime wire to my pc , i start using it and made a download from it while the rule was reading dropped packates .
i think this rule should stop lime wire 100% , ????
waiting your reply eagerly .
with best regards .
