Re: How to Blocking VoIP ( H.323) ?
Hmm - just introduce some jitter into your network, and add random delay to the short packets - and no VoIP in your company -:). Other way - block ALL outbound connections (including DNS and HTTPS) and require using proxy, or better do not allow external IP addresses. -:) (I should not be very optimistic about this). ----- Original Message ----- From: "Christopher L.
