Windows 8.1 Group Policies For Internet Connection Sharing?


  • Are there any more detailed policies available other than simply allowing or blocking Internet Connection Sharing?

    I need to find out if there are policies allow management of Internet Connection Sharing?  For instance we would like to allow ICS, but control it so that it cannot be set up by the user in unsafe manner.

    We would like to either set the PSK password in advance or at least disallow weak ICS WPA passwords.  It would also be a good idea if we could set up ICS so that only domain joined computers from our domain could join the ICS session from another computer on our domain or else disallow direct access and file sharing between the ICS host and the guests joining the ICS network.

    Can these types of things be managed via group policy?
