Deny Internet access
Hope someone can help

I need to deny internet access for one of my users and am planning to do this by blocking outbound port 80 for there ip address.

This works very well but unfortunately also stops the automatic updating of any security software including AVG and Microsoft Antispyware.

Is there any way round this or is this just a problem with blocking outbound port 80.

I am using a Netgear DG834G router and the PC is running WIN XP sp2

Thanks in advance

Hi Blin

Thanks for your response.

I think using content advisor is going to be the best solution as I need the user to have access to a couple of work related websites.

Is there a way in content advisor to block ALL websites except for a couple I can specify in the approved sites tab??

Have tried a few ways but not getting the result I need

Hope you can help again

Open up contant tabe and enable content adivsor. in the first tab put all settings down to 0 for language, nudity, sex and violence. Then go to general and make sure the users can see sites with no ratings is DISABLED and has no check. Then go to approved sites and type in the URLS that he is allowsed to go to and hit always and it should appear below that.

This always works for me.

Hi StumpedTechy

I had already tried what you suggested but on testing these settings found that a few sites slipped through the net. yahoo.com and msn.com got past the content advisor even though the only approved site in my list was microsoft.com.

Although I could just add these to the list of unapproved sites it makes me think what other sites could slip past content advisor?

Is there a way of banning all sites except the approved ones with a wildcard setting like *.*

Hope you can help further

Thanks
