IESEC on Windows Server can affect the browsing experience and not allow important sites to load. This module will allow you to control the settings for IESEC.

Parameters: $_admin_enable $users_enable

Both parameters accept boolean true and false


Here, list the classes, types, providers, facts, etc contained in your module. This section should include all of the under-the-hood workings of your module so people know what the module is touching on their system but don't need to mess with things. (We are working on automating this section!)
