School Guardian - Temporary Bypass
How do you enable this?
I have put a tick in the "Show Bypass Controls" box on Guardian > Block Page -> (my group)
and created a "bypass" user in SG
THe controls appear on the client PC when a page is blocked but when I enter the bypass username & password - I go straight back to the SG login screen?
Am I missing something?

There are certain setups where it fails - all centred around IE. Whilst we look for a workaround, as far as I know, if you bypass the site, then, when it fails to redirect you, simply type in the url again (or go back a few pages and re-click the link). Its the redirection thats failing, not the bypass.
I will be keeping tabs on this issue, and as soon as we can come up with a way to do it that works reliablly in every set up, we'll let you know.
Are either of you using proxy.pac BTW, we think that may be another common factor

we have the same problem, if a user trys to access youtube thats blocked, after typing in the bypass details they do not get redirected to the youtube page.

@tom - we have the pac enabled on the smoothie box.. but not set in IE..
At first I thought it was an IE8/Win7 prob but it happens on IE7 & IE8 on XP, Vista or Win7...

Ok folks, just been on to our Development Manager... and I says to he "How's the testing going to find the source of this IE/Temp bypass bug?" and he says "Testing? We fixed it!" - so apparently... there will be a fix out in feature pack3 (October 31) but it will require a registry poke on the clients to make sure IE behaves as well as it should.
Thanks to tom_newton from:

Excellent - good work guys - looking forward to FP3 already
The reghack shouldn't be an issue either ...
