i'm doing what you want this way:

create a file to store the file extensions which you want to restrict:

        # denied file extensions file:

then add an acl that defines where your file is denied filetypes

        acl deniedtypes url_regex "/squid/etc/deniedtypes"

and then restrict http access for denied filetypes

        http_access deny deniedtypes

if you want you can give a special errormessage to your users by adding this

        deny_info ERR_DENIED_FILE_TYPE deniedtypes

this allows you to restrict multimedia video and audio filetypes and some
malicious scripts and such...

hope this helps

Subject: [SQU] stopping RealPlayer/RealAudio/RealVideo


I would like to block RealPlayer/RealAudio/RealVideo feeds into our
company. Although I can lock down the firewall RealPlayer 8 has an HTTP
access option that uses Port 80, which I cannot block or all of the HTTP
traffic will stop.

I do not want to use any sort of authentication but thought there might be
another way.

Any help would be appreciated.

Also, recently somone asked about stopping mp3 downloads but I cannot
seem to find the postings. I would like to stop avi's, mpg's etc. so would
like to see the ACL lists for mp3 again. Any help there would also be
