    I do not alllow chat´s in the servers, (I removed them from Feature management).

    I still have some customers that install phpmychat´s in the server and one of them is consuming many resources, he has 300 or more users, (how can i automaticly kill the process) "especially phpmychat" or stop them from using chat scripts?, it seems phpmychat uses port 80 so i can not close this port.

    Some applications such as Moodle have chats integrated, i would like to find a way to sttop this chats,

    (i´m recomending my customers to use external Irc chat´s Dalnet, Efnet, with a java applet they can place in the page.

    any ideas?

    Im almost positive its impossible to block all types of chats and such. Best thing to do, is put in your TOS that chat programs are not allowed, and start suspending accounts ;) Someone with 300 users in a chatroom needs a dedicated server anyways...
