You can't do this with a GPO - sorry

The reason is that just opening up a HTML page is a download:

The browser requests the page by filename and then receives the text (download) it then parses the text into a page.

It is possible to block FTP and HTTP downloads using a firewall. I have Kerio Winroute Firewall (www.kerio.com) and it has a feature that allows all sorts of control on a per user basis over what is downloaded.

Cheers

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

You can get a refund by going to community support.

However, you should also post here how you fixed it yourself so that others can benefit from your discovery.

I don't think this chap should get a refund as he didn't post the answer he apparently got by himself.

I am inclined to believe that my comment was correct and he is just trying to save himself spending the points.

My recommendation:

Delete/PAQ, no refund.

Cheers

I was hoping to entice him into posting his solution :)

I would have been happy to recommend a refund if he had shown us all how to solve the problem, plus we would have a good PAQ for the KB.

Cheers

You're too cunning for your own good, and it's nearly home time for me so was trying to be effient ;-)

If we get a response back from dh003756 I'll happily suggest a refund.

Waiting on dh003756 response.
