Hello all
I am faced with an issue. I need to stop users from accessing the internet, but still get things on our network.
I think my options are
1) create a policy on the user logon that will prevent them from logging on
2) the machines that the users use, create policies on those local machines that prevent the machine from logging on

Doees anyone have any other answers???



Thanks

If you have a firewall just block port 80 out alltogether.

There is some relatively inexpensive software like Magic Tweak that will prevent users from chaning many settings. You could have IE configured with incorrect connection information (wrong gateway IP for example). Magic Tweak could then prevent users from changing it back.

Well it is in a W2K environment, with about 15 machines and we only have two users that are abusing the free spirited environment.
I would rather block their machines from the internet and then setup a plociy where their logons prevent them from logging onto the internet, just in case they want to go to another machine

What is your source for internet access? Is it through a DSL, cable or other connection? Do you have a router? Are you using a proxy server?
