    Default Blocking Internet Exploer?

    Is there any way to block Internet Explorer (in order to get users to use FF or Chrome)?

    No, there is no magic that figures out what browser is used to access web content. All untangle sees is a network request for web content, it doesn't care what it's from.

    .

    Kinda.

    You could use "HTTP: Client User Agent" to match clients recently using IE. It may not be perfect because some background tasks may use HTTP through IE though not visible to the user.
    I would use "HTTP: Client User Agent" = "*MSIE*" and "Destination Port = 80" and add capture rules in captive portal and display a warning page about using IE or something. "I accept that I will switch to a real browser"

    You could also just put them on a separate and do all sorts of crazy stuff, including just making their traffic really slow or just blocking them.

    User Agent String is documented here:
