some IPTV streams blocked while others not...stumped!

I am using an IPTV provider for channels streams. The stations url format is as follows: https://URL.xyz:443/play/random.letters/ts 

But some channels are working and others are not. I am stumped at what is making UTM block some stations and not others !! The only difference in the link is the "random.letters" part.

  • Hi and welcome to the UTM Community!

    Copy here a few lines from the Web Filtering log where a station is blocked.

    Cheers - Bob

  • It isn't showing that it was blocked I guess, but it times out. There is no issue streaming when I take the firewall off.

    My VLC player log shows:

    http error: local stream 1 error: Cancellation (0x8)
    gnutls error: TLS handshake error: Error in the push function.
    main error: TLS session handshake error
    main error: connection error: Interrupted function call
    access error: HTTP connection failure


    thank you. 

  • We're looking for lines without action=pass.  You'll probably also see statuscode="5. or statuscode="4.  You might get some of these lines with:

         cd /home
         grep 'statuscode="[45]' /var/log/http.log|more

  • Thank you BAlfson. 
    Unfortunately I am not seeing any action=fail related to the IPTV link even though the channels in question are trying to stream but failing. . Opening traffic on the UTM clears all streams.

  • Without relevant lines from the log, it's hard to help you.  A WAG would be to add a DNS Group for the FQDN to the Transparent mode skiplist on the 'Advanced' tab.
