    One of my customer requested me to block the msn messenger on her computer
    which is on a network with another computer. The network is using a Dlink
    router which has firewall capabilites. I tried to block the port 80; it
    blocks the internet connection, but not the msn messenger. How can I block
    the msn messenger. Any ideas?

    Try blocking all acess to network 207.46.0.0/16

    If you block TCP/1863 MSN Messenger will use TCP/80 to make a connection
    with limited capabilities (no file transfers) .

    That would be good, however MSN does not always go to that address range.
    The most simple answer is to block that particular application at the
    firewall.
