Question
How do I block access to a specific service or application in my SVG2482AC Gateway?
Answer
The SVG2482AC Parental Control feature provides the ability to block outbound access to specific Internet services or applications using ports.  These services or applications are blocked on all devices connected to the home network during a specified time of day.  Blocked access can be removed for a particular device, by selecting Yes under Trusted Computers. 

By default, Parental Control is disabled with no restrictions, which allows Internet access to all of the devices at all times.  This document describes how to block devices from accessing a specific service on the Internet and how to remove the blocked access. 

This document contains the following sections:
