    testingforschools.com - again

    right i posted a thread about this site before and that problem was solved, however we have the popup blocker causing a problem. the students can accept the site though but its annoying if each student ahd to do that. is there a way of having it so when the administrator sets the popup blocker to accept the site it will work for all users? we did try it with administrator in the microsoft popup blocker but logging in as a test student it didnt save the setting.

    just wondering if im missing something or if this could be a ranger issue.

    we're using windows xp just to let you know and thanks in advance

    Log on to a machine as a student accept the site popups. Logoff and copy the profile to the ranger directoty and set to .MAN.

    All users should then recieve exactly the same setup i.e wallpaper, desktop icons and options in things like IE.

    Make sure you have delete profile on logoff set as well

    I believe there is also a section in Group Policy for setting these things.

    You can allow certain site pop-ups via a GPO:

    User configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Internet Explorer > Pop-up allow list

    I have the following listed for testingforschools.com:

    testingforschools.com
    web00.testingforschools.com
    web01.testingforschools.com
    web02.testingforschools.com
    web03.testingforschools.com
    www.testingforschools.com
