(Newbie user): How to block internet traffic to web-based chat services (yahoo, gchat, etc)?

Hi all,

 

Apologies, I'm a non-technical manager, who wishes to restrict access to employees to web-based chat services such as yahoo web chat, gchat, msn chat, etc.

 

Is there any way to do this through COMCAST?


Thanks in advance.

Hello gwmproperties,

 

Welcome to the forum.

To your query please use following steps to setup Web Site Blocking on the Comcast IP-Gateway.

 

Log in to the Comcast Business Gateway by entering http://10.1.10.1.

The Comcast Business IP-Gateway screen will display.

Enter the following default username and password so that you can access the feature setup screens:
• The default username is cusadmin.
• The default password is highspeed.

 

After you have logged in to the Comcast Business IP Gateway:

  • Click on "Firewall" menu
  • Click on "Web Site Blocking" tab
  • Check Enable Web Site Blocking.
  • In the New Key Word/URL field, enter either the full Web site address (e.g.,“www.example.com”) to block a specific Web site or enter a key word to block all addresses containing that word.
  • Click add. The key word or Web site address will appear in the Blocked Key Words/URLs list.

Please note that you can only set up to 10 blocking rules.

 

For additional information this our overview article of the IP-Gateway.

 

Thank you
