Watchguard x750 - http proxy policy - block EXE, but add exception

I have an x750 and am blocking EXEs among other file types. All of our coprporate internet traffic goes out the x750.  I have a technician working in another office that would like to be able to download drivers & applications when needed, but can't.

Is there any type of override? Similar to the one in web blocker, that would prompt for a PW and allow a temporary override?

Thanks,

E.D.

Yes.   Create a firebox user (same as how you would create a local VPN user) for this person.  Then create looser rules from that user to Any-External.   They can log in using http://{firewall ip address}:4100 and then they will be processed through the new rule.  

This is really basic and forgive me if your network is more complex.  All of this can be done with AD or AD single sign on or LDAP, etc.   But assuming a pretty standard setup, the above steps should work.  If you need more details or your network is more complex, just give us the details and we can provide more instructions.
