Hi,

Sounds to me like something that you cant do on your ASA alone atleast.

To my understanding the new ASA CX could do this. Allow Facebook itself but still block parts of it like sharing pictures and playing games.

I am still waiting for a new ASA5515-X with ASA-CX so I can get to testing it myself.

Sadly this is naturally not something that its going to help you with your current device.

I am not totally sure what the different ASA modules and external web filtering services are able to do as I have never used them personally.

If you want to take a look at the ASA-CX more closely, here is for example site that lists the things related to Facebook it can control

Hi,

To my understanding this would be possible with the ASA-CX.

I am not all that sure if its possible on the ASA alone. I imagine at the least you would need some web filtering solution and I am not even sure about that.

You should probably wait for someone from Cisco to answer or open a TAC Case with Cisco if you have the possibility to open one.

You can filter by url, but it's not very scalable. I've done it with the cx, but with no cx you're pretty limited. Here's a write-up I did for url filtering.

you guys are rights .

this can not achieve only with asa 5520 .

in my organization i am using Cyberoam UTM and it is pretty good.

You can even block chating and still allowing facebook websites

Yes it can be done in Cyberoam which i used before but with my new company all cisco equipment including firewall hope soon Cisco is going to have same function and easy to manage.

Hi Jason,

Your need is not the role of ASA 5520. For this you have to use a web filtering system.

Best regards.

Hi everybody:

Somebody know any another cisco device to achive this application control, like facebook games, or other application?

I've read about a WLC or ISE, but you need an advanced licence, and this bring to me to another question

May I get this kind of advance license in a tryal mode?

I want to make a demo to show to my clients how to control this kind of activities, but I don't have an ASA CX

Any suggestion?

Thanks in advance

Al
