Smoothwall wildcards - MySpace signups
(Previously posted to Network and Classroom Management)
I've got a group of students who are (legitimately) trying to sign up to a musicians MySpace account (http://signups.myspace.com/index.cfm...ion=signupBand) but when they hit "SUBMIT" they are returned to the sign up page.
I have enabled 'myspace.com, myspace.co.uk and signups.myspace.com' in the Guardian, but this hasn't sorted the problem.
Is there any way to introduce a wildcard so that URL's that aren't generally known (or visible) when a user submits details (i.e b.myspace.com) can be allowed, e.g *myspace.com or myspace.com* ?

If you add myspace.com to your custom allowed list, for example, it should also unblock foo.myspace.com and bar.myspace.com
What I found is that MySpace will also serve content from their content delivery network on the domain myspacecdn.com
So try adding that also.
(beware that you are universally opening up access to myspace)
