Hi, jaideept, you're going to have to be a whole lot more specific as to what you're attempting :) Are you talking about disabling the ability for domain users to use chat? If so, I would recommend looking into setting a Group Policy to do this. You can block sites such as talkgadget.google.com & hostedtalkgadget.google.com, which host some of the chat services for Google.

Yes we are trying to block gmail chat for domain users but i never tried this thru GPO, but we give a try thru firewall and with the help of websense but result is not matching up with my criteria(Gmail chat blocked). can u guide me how can i block particular chat section using AutoIt.

Hi, Jaideept. I'm not sure what led you to believe that Autoit could block this for your entire network. Maybe someone much more intelligent than I can give you a solution, but I think there are much easier ways to do it. You mentioned WebSense, and I know you can configure the blocking of sites through that product. At the most basic, you could configure a policy in DNS to set chatenabled.mail.google.com to not resolve.

As you know google providing random ip's for it's applications(gmail) so i never stick up with the single ip or site name, is there any utility which can help us to alert whenever google or any particular ip allowing communication thru different ip's.
