    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

    @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.

    The reghack shouldn't be an issue either ...
