Cirtix PS 4.5

I have a citrix server where I have added local users in the same server. Presently the remote users are accessing the published application through web interface. They dont have internet access in their local pcs. But when they connect to citrix they can access IE which we need to block. I assume that they can access the desktop icons of citrix server and IE is one of them.

How can I restrict the users.

This should help:

Create a Organizational Unit (OU) such as “No Internet” or what ever you like, specificaly for the clients. Create a GPO with the same name and link it to the OU.
In the GPO, edit the Proxy Settings under /User Configuration/Windows Settings/Internet Explorer Maintenance/Connection

Set the proxy server IP address and port to a non-existing proxy server. I use the default gateway for my network (IP to my firewall), and then check “Use The Same Proxy Server for all Addresses”.

This means then that you are publishing the desktop. If the published desktop is not necessary then one way to do it is un-publish the desktop and just keep published applications for the users.

A much better way is to use GPO to restrict the use of IE:
1. Open Group Policy Management
2. Navigate to User ConfigurationAdministrative TemplatesSystem
3. Find the setting Don't Run Specified Windows Applications and enable it
4. Add iexplore.exe in the box

You can also play around with GPO to make a hash rule for blocking IE.

The ultimate and best I would consider if security is a concern is to ask your network team to disable access to internet on their appliances per user, per user's device and/or per PS 4.5 server.
