Hi guys,

Does any of you know of a good app, that would allow one to either block uploads/downloads or limit them?

thanks!

Been awhile since I looked closely, but if you are running Windows 2000 and higher, I seem to remember you can manage that somewhat through Local Group Policy:

Might want to research that a bit and see if you can do what you want through that.

Well, it seems that you'd need to be logged on to a server to do that. We do have one, but it's only working as a storage (we log on to our separate workstations, not to the workgroup).

I'd actually like to at least be able to shut off the upload on the individual workstations...

That's what the local group policy is for (Domain policies can override Local ones, but if you're not running a domain, that's not a concern). It resides on the individual machines and controls only that machine. So if you find a policy that does what you want, you'd have to apply that to each machine you want it on. Be carefully about how you apply them and make sure you don't restrict admins (or your account or you'll limit yourself as well. In other words, don't apply the policies to "Everyone" because that would include you. Make sure "Everyone" is removed from the policy restriction and only the users you want to limit are included.

Much appreciated!
