This issue has been solved. See solution.

There a lot of possibilities to limit SDLP users on accessing information using roles. But what about accessing the Enforce console itself. The administrator guide says that it could be accessed from Enforce server. Other way is to 1) access the Enforce server through RDP and then 2) use web-browser to access the web-console. 

And what about accessing the Enforce console from other PC? What is the easiest way to do this?

it is just perfect. But to log on I need to log remotely to Enforce server first. And then launch web browser and log on to web console.

Right now the only solution I see is to let SDLP users log on to the Enforce server remotely with their own credentials (which will be limited to only launch browser) and then log on console using that browser.

How to skip RDP part of this?

Does this means enforce web server is not accessible from corporate network ?

is there any reason for that ? usually people access enforce UI from their corporate workstation using browser without connecting to enforce server (especially because it is nice to put enforce server in DMZ to avoid too many people having access to it)

Does your company restrict https?  What stephane said is accurate, what is the reason for not being able to pull up a web browser and accessing the UI from a coroporate desktop/laptop?

The Firewall settings on the Enforce server were blocking https requests from the others PCs inside the domain. Fixed. It is working now.
