Hey Joe, I'm Tim and will be helping you....There is no such way to do what you are requesting......there are no protocols on any router that prompt you for a password ***** download something online, you can block sites etc, but if someone can access a site, and there is a downloadable link, they can download it. Now there is probably software that can be installed on systems that does this.
http://www.winability.com/folderguard/ is one such piece of software. But it is a software solution, there is no networking solution.
If you are on a domain, you can also use domain permissions to do so, so i guess that is kind of a networking solution, i doubt you are on a domain, and its harder to manage than the software.
I would expect edge to act exactly like Internet explorer, since it is the same browser, but just renamed. There are other options out there as well as far as software goes. I would assume the one i listed to block all downloads.
give me minute please.
i'm not familiar with that product and would need to download it and install it myself. Since you don't want support, i'm happy to let you go.
i'm going to set it up for my own interests.
It let me download as well.
I'm trying another one, let me know if you would rather i drop it.
its going to be a software solution, im looking, doing all I can man...
Just thought of something....if you have Admin on that machine, the software is useless.....the user needs to not be admin. Admin overrides that software.
Make sense? Needs to be tested on an account that does not have local admin, local admin supersedes all
Odd, that's not what the software clams...You may need to consider adding a domain controller and going about it that way, or continue looking for a software solution, guest accounts can not install software either, but that is probably not ideal.
Yes, again a domain controller.....
