Layer 7 application firewall blocking gutnella-networking

Recently our clients have been experiencing connectivity issues to our application server sitting behind MX67c firewall and having gone through the logs I noticed that the connections are seen as p2p network as Gnutella-network. I have setup a layer 7 firewall to block all p2p sometime back and had no issue until recently.


PS. This is my first post and any help would be much appreciated

Kind of a big deal

What firmware version your on?

Firmware 16.16.4 + should have some nbar fixes

We currently have firmware version 16.6. New versions to upgrade to are 16.16.5 and 17.9. I will upgrade and see how it goes


Thank you very much for your response.

Getting noticed

a work arround this issue is to unblock the L7 FW rule thats block Gnutella-network    but to do this you will have to generate L7 rules for all the P2P categories one by one and do not add the Gnutella-network category when doing this.
