Display message when user goes to a website that is not allowed RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

     

    I was wondering if anyone has found a way to display a nice message in Internet Explorer telling a user whose account is locked and has prevent access to internet (except allowed websites) checked that the website is not allowed?  Currently, IE 7 shows a message that the user typed the wrong web address as being the reason for not going to a website that is not on the allowed list.  Is it possible to change this screen to say something to the effect that the website you are trying to go to is not allowed?  Any help is greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

  • Hi Shawn,

     

    When you set the “Prevent Internet access (except Web Sites below)” option, the system will set the proxy server in IE to a non-exist one (NoInternetAccess) and add web sites allowed to the “Exceptions”. The “Use the same proxy server for all protocols” option is checked. In this way, all web site access except for those allowed sites are blocked. From IE’s standpoint, this is a configuration issue instead of permission issue. Thus, permission related message is not displayed. Unfortunately, SteadyState doesn’t have the feature to customize a warning message when trying to access the not allowed websites.

     

    For your information, Internet Explorer’s Content Advisor can display a correspondingly readable message. You may consider using Content Advisor to configure internet access restrictions. For more information, please refer to the following thread:
