Cisco 1811 - how to block P2P and Messaging traffic

Hi,

I have a couple of Cisco 1811 IOS routers and I'm looking for a way to block P2P and instant messaging traffic on my networks. I understand there are different ways to do that, but I'm absolutely not sure what the right way is.

I tried to configure "ip inspect" rules but it didn't worked at all. I also read about NBAR but then read a comment about it beeing "too old" to approach todays P2P technics.

Basically I have 4 sites, each site has a single LAN configured as a VLAN interface. I need to configure firewalling to block everything except HTTP/S, DNS, ICMP, FTP, SMTP and NTP. I also need to make sure that VPN traffic is not affected by firewall rules.

I don't have access to my router configs from my current location, I will attach them later to this post.

Any help on how to accomplish my task would be greatly appreciated.

kind regards,

Sebastian

Re: Cisco 1811 - how to block P2P and Messaging traffic

Hi,

I suggest that you have a look at configuring Zone Based Firewalls (ZBF).

See below a design guide

See below a link describing the differences between a Classic IOS firewall and ZBF
