Restricting Active Wall Configuration - possible?

Hi,

I just noticed that it is possible to change the active wall configurations even when a user who does not have admin privileges is logging into the PC on which it is installed.
Can you please let me know if there is any way to restrict this? I want only an admin to be able to configure the settings. No one else should be allowed.

Thanks in advance!
Regards,
Lydia

Usually, active wall should be installed on the gateway or bridge PC.
In this mode, user can not touch the gateway or bridge PC and change the configuration.

Hi,

I have plans of using Active Wall on individual machines since I will have to apply different rules on different machines based on who is logging into the machine.
So can you please let me know a solution for this?

Regards,
Lydia

Please set the "c:\program files\awall\plugins" read only to current account. Will it solve your problem?

Can you please suggest some other solution? I am looking for an option for close to 200 PCs on which it will be installed. So probably a solution which I can implement while installation or while initial configuration of the firewall will be good.

Thanks,
Lydia

Can you please let me know if there is any way to restrict a user from opening the AWALL GUI from the system tray?
As I already said I want to apply some rules for a particular user before he logs in and so after he logs in he should not be able to open active wall and change the settings or stop active wall all together.(which he is allowed to do presently)

So can you please tell me if I can block a user from opening Active Wall from the system tray?
This is urgent.

Thanks
Lydia

You can set the password in active wall. User can not login and change setting without password.

You can install active wall on each computer and select single mode.
But you'd better install active wall on one computer and filter all traffic in the lan.
