It's come to my attention recently that a handfull of our campus students
are routing their peer-to-peer applications over HTTP via our proxy server.
I suspect this is because we restrict peer-to-peer traffic with
Packetshaper (making it painful to use), but give highest priority to our
proxy server. The end result is that much of the proxy servers time and
cache is being spent supporting the swapping of these files and logging the

I would like to tell proxy server only to process URLs that are for port 80
or port 443 and to drop or deny all other URLs (everthing else is allowed
via the firewall already).

Can this be done?
