Re: Block skype file transfer to outside domain


Are you using Skype for Desktop? If so, you should be able to reach your desired outcome using a application file access protection rule and configure the rule to your desired settings.

Re: Block skype file transfer to outside domain

Hello Mreaden

Thanks for the reply...

We are  using a application file access protection rule.. but it is not satisfying our expectations .

Yes.. we are able to monitor the shared content, files through skype desktop we set it to monitor.

But we want, if  user A sharing content/file with user B inside organization(same domain) it should monitor.

but if the same user sharing content/file outside the organization (External domain) should be blocked.


Any suggestions !!!
