Hi @RobinVarghese

You'll want to block google-play instead of google-base

Re: Google Play Store Problem

have you met all the dependencies (are the dependency applications being allowed somewhere else in your security policy) ?

 

you may also need to enable ssl decryption as google tends to hide all their applications in an ssl tunnel with the same wildcard certificate

@RobinVarghese,

Blocking Google Play efficiently needs to use SSL Decryption in most environments to actually function. However with that being said Google utilizes tcp/udp 5228 heavily. If you block that you should find that you no longer are able to actually download an application anymore; however this will also take away Chrome syncing and other Google product features.
