    Re: Managing file downloads via AD How are you doing it !!

    Yeah it uses the memory for caching. Maybe you can limit the memory used to cache in the caching properties. I think you have specify this in terms of percentage of RAM. I don't know the exact details but its somewhere in the ISA 2004's cache settings.

    Also there are some tips to reduce the amount of memory used to log the request i.e. especially if you are using the MSDE logging.

    Have a check on isaserver.org for more info.

    BTW, SP2 is available now for ISA Server 2004.

    Started to work this route, we have DIDA also, hence original question.
    However I have hit a problem, having had file downloads (Pupil policy only) disabled for some time I changed the GP to enable downloads as a starting point but I cannot get file downloading enabled again !!
    Looked at the policy for ages, ran Gpupdate, Group Policy Modeling,
    All show downloads enabled, IE zones at default settings. Have tried copying profile from working user to default user profile on a test PC but has no effect. - having some senior moments here !! what am I missing ??

    Chris, server2003 here, believe I ran gpupdate correctly from client.
    However I believe updates occurr automatically every 90mins, started this on Monday, should have updated by now.

    Thinking about this there maybe multiple locations this can be stopped. I vaguely remember there were 2 settings about the specific stoppping of downloading and something to do with the menus or context menus or something stupid like that.

    Re: Managing file downloads via AD How are you doing it !!

    I'm interested in doing this also.

    Is there a way of telling the GP not to allow *.exe downloads but only allow *.jpg, *.zip, etc [for example]? ....or is this the realms of proxys only?

    Roger, I have them turned off for me but not for staff/pupils - tho i think I'm gonna have to play with the settings due to recent events here.

    Is there reason it still isnt applying is because you have made a custom IE install which has specifically said not to allow saving of downloads [or whatever the setting is]?

    I've done that before hehe I also do this with the Win98 PC's - but alas, its computer wide with those but its not like i have to use a 98 machine to do my work anymore *big thumbs up*

    Cheers
    Nath

    Geoff, GPMC lists all `File download` as Enabled, that`s what is confusing.

    Something else I have just noticed - on one of the sites that we need access to it is a *.pdf document that needs opening, if you click on the link you get the `Restrictions` error message, but if you type the full URL to the document in the browser it opens OK !

    Nath, not sure what you mean by custom install of IE these are XP clients with SP2. Configured to suit, then image created. Do you mean if you disable file downloads in IE security settings during configuring the image, you cannot change it via GP later??

    I hit a similer problem as well, make sure you don't have " Disable Save this program to disk option" disabled as well. So it would come to the point of do you want to save or open this file it would just say "restricted"

    I had a few moments as well, but it was that setting getting in the way.

    Also are you using the "Site To Zone Assignment" list to put in this site as a Trusted Site?

    Yeah its a bit confussing because it should say file download instead of program.

    Cause this setting is the save dialog box, when you download any file.

    have you tried running a rsop on the machine remotely with the user logged in to see if its picked up the changes.
