Hi all, I have some internet users who listen to online radio stations. I have asked them not to do it, as I feel like it probably uses up a fair amount of bandwidth. Is this correct, or does is use very little? Also, other than purchasing and installing software, is there a way to block music? Such as certain ports on the firewall I can turn off, or something? I can't remove their internet access as it is a vital part of their job function (billing, etc.) Any help would be appreciated.

    Sreaming Media, such as Internet radio stations can use significant bandwidth, but as Exchange22 has indicated, there is no simple way to block this traffic, unless you have everyone going through a proxy server for their connection to the internet, then it is just a matter of blocking the Streaming Media protocols.
