Cisco WRVS4400N – Skype blocking will never work

Just a quick update in my continuing experience with the Cisco WRVS4400N. As mentioned previously, I and other users have had problems using the device’s IPS facility to block Skype connections, contrary to its feature set which says it’s supported. After raising a support call with Cisco, I have heard back from a support engineer, and they state “since Skype has changed three times since the release of the WRVS4400N, we will not be able to fix this issue”.

So, if you depend on a router for the effective blocking of Skype use by employees on your network, the WRVS4400N obviously cannot be recommended for this specific feature.
