    Media File Blocking via EPO4.5

      Hello Everyone,


      Our company has a strict policy of not allowing people to have fun at work.


      Accrodingly I have created a policy under the following tab in EPO4.5


      VirusScan Enterprise 8.7.0 > Access Protection Policies > McAfee Default Custom > Access Protection > User Defined Rules > File / Folder Blocking Rule


      I added the file extension below with wild cards and blocked them.

      *.aac, *.aif, *.aiff, *.asf, *.asx, *.au, *.avi, *.flac, *.m3u, *.mid, *.midi, *.mov, *.mp1, *.mp2, *.mp3, *.mp4, *.mp5, *.mpa, *.mpe, *.mpeg, *.mpeg2, *.mpeg3, *.mpg, *.ogg, *.qt, *.qtw, *.ram, *.rm, *.rmi, *.rmvb, *.swf, *.vob, *.wav, *.wax, *.wma, *.wmv


      Somehow it doesnt work. However, if I just keep in a simple *.mp3 it does work. Is there a limit to number of file types that can be added in a single rule.... or am I doing something wrong here.


      Would appreciate some quick inputs.
