Hi Folks,

I am trying to block youtube using our company's firewall. Unfortunately, the firewall does not have URL filtering and can only block based on IP. I did a nslookup on www.youtube.com and get a new set of IPs each day. I think the IP address which I block is not the actual IP of youtube but the DNS records in our DNS server which changes daily.

How can I get the actual IP to effectively block access to www.youtube.com?
