Disabling McAfee HIPS 8 on a travelling computer


We have been getting calls from our employees from their hotel rooms saying HIPs is blocking specific traffic.  As they are not on our network anymore and can't contact the agent handler, we need a way to disable HIPS without sending them the password to the HIPs Interface.

Previously, in HIPS 7, it was possible to disable HIPS by removing/disabling the McAfee NDIS Wan driver in the TCP/IP stack for the driver.

Is there a way to disable this in HIPS 8 in a similar fashion, and can you provide where the steps are provided?
