How to handle jdownloader?

L3 Networker

Hi guys,

I was wondering what the best way to handle jdownloader or other download managers? Are they treated as seperate apps? Is the only way to deal with this via QoS policies? I'd love to hear about your experiences.

Downloader apps aren't using any specific protocols : they download files over HTTP or FTP, so creating an application is hard/non-revelant to the definition of an application as they are used in PA.

Hi Alex,

Do you mean downloading the installer or the downloads managed by jdownloader.?

If you want ot manage downloading the installer, it should be an exe file , which you can handle through File blocking profiles and set appropriate actions and applying to specific rules.

We currently do not have the jdownloader as an application in our App database.



Hi Parth,

I most definitely mean the downloads handled by Jdownloader. Would this require a new application signature in Applipedia to be managed?



Unless you create a custom app on your own you can request app enhancement from the Apps and Threats Research Center.

From there you can click on Submit an app and provide details there.

Stupid question perhaps and a tad off topic but is there any cost attached with requesting a custom app/signature? Or will any new app eventually be included in the standard application db (provided it's accepted as a new app)?

Like what you see?
