Hi AB,

I got the same problem. How to find definition for internet data card? I used DLP monitor but it shows nothing about that data card. Would you please advice? Thank you.

You need to get the specific device information from the data card.  ( Vendor ID and Device ID) and CREATE a device definition for it yourself so that device control can identify it seperately.  Then exclude that device from the rule.

On external flash drives I use an small application called USBDeview to easily display the info. That might work for a USB data card as well (I haven't tried it.) Or, you will need to look in the device properties of the hardware. Good luck!

I know some of these devices are part 3G modem and part USB data stick that contain an auto install of the drivers.

Is the modem actually being blocked or just the data stick part of it?

Hi, Create a device definition using file system CDFS & UDFS for your data card and exclude those from blocking. It will allow all your data card devices.
