IE 7 blocking redirect for clients using wireless through ISA Server

Hi,
I am sure someone has already figured this out.  That is why I decided to check with you all first.

I have clients that are using IE7 on their wireless laptops, but in order for them to obtain a VPN connection they need to be redirected to our helpdesk site to download the VPN client first.

However, an IE7 setting is causing a block of the redirect.  I am sure it is IE7, because clients with IE6 have no issues with redirecting to the site.  Can someone point me to the correct setting so I can turn it off?

Thanks for your time.

Have a great day.

Bob

Keith,
Thank you for responding.
I have resoved the issue, but now am trying to figure out how to add it to my Group Polices so I can set all my other client computers too.

I have been looking and looking and looking for this setting within GPM and I cannot seem to find it anywhere.  I am starting to wondering if I need to update the GPM somehow in order to get this option.

I would like to "Enable" the IE 7 Internet Zone security setting for "Allow previously unused ActiveX controls to run without prompt" via Group Policies.

I am running Windows Server 2003 R2 32-bit Standard Edition with GPM v.1.0.2

Is there a newer version than this and if so, where can I find it?

Client side is Windows XP Pro 32-bit with SP2 & SP3.

Do you have any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

What server OS are you using? What is the AD level for your domain?

Can't find it directly within group policy. however, it IS a registry setting and registry keys CAN be deployed through group policy. i gavce attached a link to a web page that describes the process - the key is 1208.

Ah - (thought I would just take a peek) - Can't do this. EE has a rule that the maximum for a question is 500 points. You have effectively asked the same question twice making the overall question now worth 1000 points. If this action deals your issue, we will refund you the points from the other question. Either way, fingers crossed that this solves your issue.

Keith,
OK, I am going to need a little more help.  I am not sure how to create a registry entry for Group Policy.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Bob, i am a firm believer in providing the approach and the tools - lets see how you get on with this one. Dan Petri gives some really useful tips on many things. This is one. Read through this article and the one highlighted in the first sentence. This will give you the process to then repeat this for any registry keys.
