Limit/restrict certain browser or os access to webaccess


I'm wondering if there is a way to limit or prevent certain browsers (old) or OS's from accessing webaccess (GW 2014 SP1 Linux)? Through webacc.cfg somehow maybe?

Looking through webacc.cfg there isn't anything that jumps right out at me.

Thank you for any help you might be able to give.

one trick that handles some of it is to force a higher level of SSL/TLS
encryption at the web server(apache2) level. The following will
certainly drop IE6 out

/Etc/apache2/vhosts.d/vhosts-ssl.conf (make a backup copy)
find the line with SSLCipherSuite, comment it out and create a new
line with
SSLCipherSuite HIGH:!aNULL:!MD5
and add the following 3 lines at that point
SSLEngine on
SSLProtocol TLSv1
SSLHonorCipherOrder On

rcapache2 restart.

To confirm and help you refine, check your webaccess with both (I like
to save to PDF both the before and after checks)
