    Re: Disabling internet in one room.

    As for TightVNC - any VNC will be, vanilla, Real, Tight, or otherwise, just as long as it uses the standard VNC port. We simply prefer Tight because it's configuration works best for us (e.g. hiding the tray icon).

    Yep, I wouldn't have mentioned it unless I tried it. Explorer didn't close for us. We are using XP SP2 with a Windows 2003 server, if that's of any use. Any idea why that's not working then? It would be a fantastic product if that works, does it also stop other programs from going online. In the past kids have been able to surf the web using Windows Media Player even.

    I have just tried it on two clients and mine displays the same behaviour as eejit. The IE closes fine but an internet URL is let through in Explorer. The Workstations are Win 2k.

    Re: Disabling internet in one room.

    We ran the client setup on the machine (I did notice that it extracted an msi - that'll be bloody handy if we get this working)

    The pages we tried to access was just google.

    We were logged in as an admin. I'll try with a restricted user.

    Re: Disabling internet in one room.

    Just caught up on this topic

    I have these points to make;

    1. Please report this bug on my site. I have limited users of non-RM users so clearly our area of expertise will be RM networks. Unless non-RM sites report these bugs they will go un-noticed

    2. LV3 is technically still in beta - so yes there may be problems.

    3. Try removing IEexplore.exe from the list of banned applications. Strange I know, but i'd be interested to know what happens.

    Please note however - instead of slating it for not working, work with us to get it working.

    Thanks

    Sorry to say that our restricted users can also get online that way.

    Re: Disabling internet in one room.

    Sure, Kevin. I'll fill in a report, we could all certainly do with a utility such as this.

    Re: Disabling internet in one room.

    Were not slating your program at all we are just reporting back our experience of it. The program seems very good for the most part and I will enjoy using it once these few hiccups are out of the way. I am however just trying to sort a problem where its constanly closing my firefox even though this machine/user has never been in the banned internet group. All this workstation has on is the server and this isnt effecting IE for some reason.

    Re: Disabling internet in one room.

    I had that, just the other way round. My firefox session was ok but it kept killing IE. Very annoying when I'm trying to approve updates on the WSUS server.

    I fully expect its something I've done because I've just installed it and not read the docs or looked at it properly yet.

    Re: Disabling internet in one room.

    A quick way to get around it is to remove firefox.exe and iexplore.exe from the Internet Banned Applications list as specified in the Startup batch. A quick restart of the Server app will soon sort it until a fix can be investigated or found.

    Always make sure there is no trailing ; at the end of the list however as this causes some issues. There is a fix, but I can't remember if it's in the current release or not. Will check when I get home.
