    You want the system to ignore usb storage devices but allow data card device?

    Many systems these days have automount magic, so you would need to disable that, and/or remove the appropriate /etc/fstab entries. Maybe also stop the usb-storage module from loading.

    Hi Miven,

    Yes I want that for a user, any USB storage device should be blocked but I have to give them USB modem access for Inertnet.
