Palo Alto

Blocking Youtube Using Palo Alto URL Category

Youtube
The Bandwidth Killer
to be honest i learn a lot from youtube whether cisco configuration or paloalto or even other things
but during work hour many user using youtube to hear songs, watch a movie trailer which kill the internet bandwidth so i explain earlier how to block facebook using APP-ID
but Youtube APP-ID is little diffrent cause it depend in google-base which will forbid google website too
so URL Category may save the Day
this remind me of Microsoft TMG

So first let create a URL Category
Go to Objects – Custom objects – URL Category – add new
(Youtube)
Add URL (www.youtube.com) Also you can add more (*.youtube.com)
1
now we create a security policy
Go to Policies – Security – add new (Stop Youtube)
2
Select the Source Zone (inside) and the Source Address (My Laptop IP  Address)
3
Select the user aysar.mohamed (Me)4
Select the Destination as my Outside Interface5
Select any in Application tab6
well here we go
in Service/URL Category we select the (Youtube) Category that we create earlier7
put the Action to deny8
now when i try to open Youtube i got the deny messgae ;D9
As you can see from the log i got the (Reset-both ) Action in rule of Stop youtube 10a

;D
