Web Content Filtering via Active Directory config issues
Posted on 2008-06-14
I have read you can do web content filtering through active directory. I would first like to know where there is configured within the group policy in AD and only allow certain sites.
Secondly I have read solutions where I can go into IE/Internet Options/Connection on the workstations and put the proxy server to 127.0.0.1 and add the sites I permit below the setting. This worked to a point but the problem lies when going to sites wihin say yahoo.com or google.com for map lookup etc. An example would be I allow yahoo.com and maps.yahoo,com it still presents the password box and I can click cancel and still do my search which is annoying for the users. It would be nice if it accepted wildcards but it doesn't.
Please advise of what I should do.
