  • Question

  • Hello,

    In the Managed Site List for IE 11 is it possible to just use a Wildcard so all sites will be in Enterprise Mode?

  • Hi,

    I think we cannot, I try to edit the bulk list like this:

    microsoft.com

    bing.com

    *.com

    But I cannot import this list file to Enterprise Mode Site List Manager, but if I just import the two valid websites, it works:

    Since you aren't really constrained to using a "wildcard" for your requirement, you could try checking if there is some other method of doing what you want.  E.g. I would try using ProcMon for Registry events to see if any RegQueryValue are being used that would seem helpful.  Etc.

     

    Good luck

  • Hi,

    I have just added an IP address to the XML file, it works, reason for using IP is that there is a lot of equipment in IT (switches, printers, cctv, PLC's, variable speed drives, projectors, TV's that are managed directly via IP as they don't always have forward DNS. It would be very handy to have the option to use wildcards or ranges in the .XML file, otherwise I end up adding a huge list of IP addresses to the XML file

    Support the idea of wildcards for other reasons as well, for instance have an application xyz, *xyz*.local would add all URLs related to that app in one go

    Comments or suggestions please,

    Adri

    in your example, everything is on your local intranet, but, might not have DNS A records ?
    the most practical thing I can think of, is to use another browser for those tasks, but, that might not be consistent with your company policy, and, if any of the targets on your intranet need ActiveX, isn't going to work too well.

    Or, look into the DNS effort involved. We use DDNS, so everything which uses DHCP gets an A record (even all the IP phones, although they don't need that).
    All of our "infrastructure" switches, routers, servers, VC/UC units, printers, copiers - always have DNS A records (either static records or DDNS ones)
