hmm, sounds like you are using the wrong tool for the job.. squid might be able to do it, but a firewall is what you seem to be looking for, such as IPTABLES

is that possible to block this through pfsense

i've tried blocking the ports,,

but it jumps to;80 or 443 which sounds difficult to block because we can't block port 80 and 443.

i don't want to use iptables, is there any other way to do this
