I am the system administrator on a network using a single Ubuntu 12.04 computer as a server and several Windows (XP) clients.
Is it possible to restrict users from accessing USB storage devices on their Windows machines from the Ubuntu server?
Note: These machines may have other non storage devices connected via USB such as keyboards and mice which must not be affected by this.
I am aware I can block access on a client by client basis from the Windows side by following the instructions from Microsoft here:
How can I prevent users from connecting to a USB storage device?
But I want to be able to enforce this from the Ubuntu side.
Is this possible and if so how?
