In Forefront TMG, you enable access to the Web by creating access rules. When creating a Web access policy for your organization, it is recommended that you do the following:
- Use the Web Access Policy wizard to create a basic Web access
policy. This basic policy provides anonymous access for internal
users to all Web destinations, except for those Web destinations
that you select. You can use predefined URL categories to filter
out the types of Web destinations you do not want your users to
access. You can also designate users or user sets to whom these
blocks do not apply. The wizard also allows you to enable
protection technologies for Web-based threats.
- After completing the Web Access Policy wizard, you can
fine-tune the Web access policy by editing the properties of the
Web access rules. Among other things, you can force users to
authenticate before granting them access to the Web, set up
different access rules for different users, control the times when
they can access the Web, and what file types they can download.
