Blocking file extension

Post by raven »

How to block file extensions like exe, flv, mp4, mkv?. I can't find any documentation about this. Does anyone here have experience how to do it?

That's not going to be possible without a proxy middleman.

Is it possible to do it using restrictions as mentioned in this topic viewtopic.php?p=101#p101. What is the correct format for regex?

With HTTP, maybe... But i doubt it would be reliable.
With HTTPS, no chance. We can't see the URI anymore, just the Host portion.
