How to create a ISA rule to open youtube access to a specific user/group
Suliman Abu KharroubIT Consultant Commented:
It depends no how do you configure clients to connect to internet, Secure Nat ( defualt gateway), web proxy or firewall client ? and how do you deny youtube in ISA; based on users/groups or client ip# ?
psanjoySystem AdministratorAuthor Commented:
Actually we are using ISA as web filtering and all the streaming sites are blocked. So I need to open youtube access to a specific user.

1. Create a computer set including all of these ip ""
2. create a new access rule from internal to that computer set and specify in users tab the users whom allowed to access youtube.

3.in clients machine, they should use proxy in the browser options, port 8080 by default. or ISA firewall client.

You said that you are already blocked all streaaming sites using ISa 2006 so can you explain the method you are using right now in order to understand your environment more.
psanjoySystem AdministratorAuthor Commented:

No i could not block it, i tried your expert comment ID:37284361 too

Suliman Abu KharroubIT Consultant Commented:
What do logs show ?
make sure the allow rule is above the deny rule in the list also.
Put up a screenshot of your rules if you are having difficulties.
Easy fix:
If you already block streaming content for everyone what you need to do is create and allow rule to URL www.youtube.com with a Userset and have the rule above the Block streaming rule.
Action: allow
From: Userset
To URL: www.youtube.com 

Or the way  i would do it is edit the streaming block rule with expections with the users you want to allow.
Hope this helps.
