Re: How to limit Skype access by web gateway

Skype uses a proprietary protocol that is tunneled on port 443. As the Web Gateway is an RFC compliant HTTP proxy, attempting to do SSL Inspection on Skype traffic will break the connection as the Web Gateway expects HTTP traffic. You can only allow (don't SSL Inspect) or block (ssl inspect) skype traffic. It is not possible to control other aspects of it as it is a proprietary protocol.
