The section on How to Create an Access Policy is where this is discussed and there is a whole section on App Control and URL Filtering.

Thanks for the reply.

I want to know working of Application control and URL filtering.
Actually, you provide me packet flow.

I want to know like: if any application comes to Checkpoint then how checkpoint identify the application is Skype or Facebook or etc.
Is there any specific unique code for every application and same for the URL.
May be in URL is matching pattern, I think so.
