Pro edition10 l.jpg
Pro Edition

  • Location aware Group Policy in ICS/ICF

    • When a Windows XP Professional computer is a member of a domain, the domain administrator can enable a group policy preventing the use of Internet Connection Sharing on the corporate network. When you bring your computer home Internet Connection Sharing is available because the policy does not pertain to your home network

  • Software Restriction Policies

    • Through GPEDIT.msc or GPO’s. The default rule can be set to unrestricted or disallowed—essentially "run" or "don’t run." Setting the default rule to "unrestricted" enables an administrator to define exceptions that are just the set of programs that are forbidden to run. A more secure approach involves setting the default rule to disallowed, and specifying only the programs that are known and trusted to run.
