Is it possible to block Skype or Lync to use VPN thru cisco anyconnect? I would like to force the app go outside of the vpn like a split tunnel.
All traffic today goes thru the VPN when user is connected including skype, if somehow the traffic is blocked for an internal IP resolved it will try the public ones.
Is that possible to do on McAfee agent thru ePO?
Thanks in advance.
"....Skype or Lync to use VPN thru cisco anyconnect..." take a look at the Cisco ASA configuration; there may be some ACLs that your could deploy to block or reroute the traffic.
The McAfee Agent is the client‑side component providing a secure communication channel from McAfee managed point‑products (VSE, ENS so on) back to an ePolicy Orchestrator server. Consider the Agent as the Taxi cab for McAfee information from the managed system back to the ePO server. So, it wouldn't necessarily have the ability to stop or allow traffic/application - that function would rest on the actual managed point-products (VSE, ENS, so on) on the managed system.
The right place to do this is absolutely on your AnyConnect configuration. You can apply ACLs or routes to connected clients to prevent them from connecting to your Skype/Lync servers over the VPN connection.
You absolutely cannot do this with the McAfee Agent. The only McAfee application you might be able to use to make this work is HIPS, due to its firewall functionality. But I can't imagine that it would be easier or less complex to do it in HIPS than to do it in your AnyConnect configuration.
Thanks for the info. I know that I should use HIPS and that is the matter, I think the easier way should be to block internal IP resolution on network firewall or as was said on AnyConnect itself.
