Force youtube


I´m trying to force youtube to use only one wan, I put this domains whith the algotihm force

but I always get using other wans.



I had do some check for the domain and found that this is actually a hidden domain from google and there is not details info when the domain will be used and how the domain resolve work for the domain.

For more information, please refer to the URL below:

Beside that, the domain also registerd in multiple top level/root domain registered.

Just to check how you detect the is forwarded using other wans ?

Thank You


In active sessions show ips of and the wan using



We had perform URLs capture when accessing to and we can’t found any request to domain Beside that, we also further check on the DNS query from the PC to the internet regarding to the domain and there is no DNS requries to the domain as well. We don’t thinks the domain is require when accessing to youtube.

Base on my finding also, seem to be the reserve DNS pointer (PTR) for all google and youtube public IP addresses.

For more information, please refer to the test below:

You are right about the domain, but is there a rule to force youtube?



You would need to create custom outbound rules using the following domains:
