I know that this topic has come up before, but I have tried many methods of blocking Internet Radio and nothing seems to work. I shut down a site and seconds later people find a new site to use and our bandwidth is getting hosed. Has anyone found a good solution to blocking all Internet Radio (streaming using port 80) sites?

Thanks,

Charlie

This is one issue that should be taken care of at the HR policy level. You should have a company policy that forbids internet radio or other types of network abuse and then provide warnings and ramifications to users that do not comply. It is much more of a policy issue than a technical one. If management does not want users on Internet Radio then they should be part of the solution. If they don't care, then you should not either. Just keep logs of all the traffic by source and point out abusers when people complain about slow performance.

I appreciate your response but I disagree and your response does not answer my question.  I wondered if it was possible to block Internet radio using TMG.  I did not want to know whether I should or other ways to do it.  Firewalls have been used for many years to block many things you do not want people doing while at work.  As an example: I would rather have a policy against viewing porn while at work and back it up with a firewall filter rather than relying on people to do the right thing for fear they are breaking a policy.  A firewall policy ensures everyone is following the rules and that resources are being distributed for business use without anyone having to play the bandwidth police.
