    Blocking BBC Radio streaming...?

    is it possible to block access to BBC radio streaming using ISA 2000... as its eating up large amounts of bandwidth!

    have tried blocking a few URLS and IP addresses ive found on various forums etc but nothing seems to work..

    anybody had any luck?

    Many thanks

    is the stream that Radio 2 uses for WMP... Can't remember how I found that out, a little while of viewing properties. Same sort of style for Radio 1, I assume others will be somewhat similar as well.

    Rather than filter it, which can in some cases cause a number of problems, you could look at setting up a Windows Media Services box and setting up Broadcast points which point to the various Radio Stations on the BBC site.

    We're doing it here and works well, Each station is streamed once to the box, then all the clients connect to a single stream.
