Block Android Device From Accessing OWA

So you want to block those insecure Android devices from connecting to OWA? Are you using TMG? No problem.

Right click your OWA publishing rule & select Configure HTTP.

1 Configure HTTP

Select the Signatures tab & click Add.

2 Signature tab blank

In the Name field type Android. In the Description field type Android devices. In the Search in drop-down select Request headers. In the HTTP header field type user-agent. In the Signature field type Android. Click OK.

3 Android

Apply the change to TMG.

Now if you try to browse to OWA from an Android device you will get an error that says, “Error Code: 500 Internal Server Error. The request was rejected by the HTTP filter. Contact the server administrator. (12217)”

blocked

Now tell those users to go get a much better Windows Phone 8 device.
