Block ms-update for GlobalProtect sessions?

L2 Linker

Hi all -- 

 

Lately, with the Win10 release, I'm finding many of my VPN users are downloading gigs of updates over my meager 10mbps company internet cxn.  I'm wondering if there is any way to block specific services/applications (ie.- ms-update) over a GlobalProtect connection..  I can't find anywhere to specify a URL filtering profile in the Gateway config.. Would I apply a profile to the VPN IP Pool in the Security Policies?  

 

Thanks

Yep, that's exactly how you would do it.  Create a security policy that says:

 from GP Zone

 to untrust

 app ms-update

 action block

 

If you're terminating the GlobalProtect users in your "trust zone", then be more specific about the source like this:

  from trust zone

  from 192.168.1.20-192.168.1.29

  to untrust

  app ms-update

  action block

 

Just make sure that you place this security policy above the policy that permits your GP users to get out to the Internet.

much appreciated. thank you

you could also use QoS to slow down the updates. So if no bandwith is used then the updates will load with max. bandwith (or a max. value konfigured by you), but if there is more important traffic the updates will be slowed down for example to only 1 mbit/s
