    What exactly do you want to restrict?

    Do you have a w2k network with 1 internet connection you wish to share?

    There are 2 possibilities: Internet Connection Sharing on a Windows 2000 Professional machine. With this you can share the internet connection with other users. The only big BUT is, that you must not have a DHCP server on your network because ICS is its own DHCP server. This goes also for DNS.

    When you DO have a network with DHCP and DNS, you can use ISA server from Microsoft or another proxy product.

    With this product you can share your connection, finetune what users can and cannot see on the internet and make servers from within your network visible to the outer world (server publishing).

    Hope this helps.

    Hi A.J.,

    I am using windows 2000 pro. as a stand alone machine and do connected internet via internal modem.

    In my family we creat 4-5 user and set user as desired power of use. Me as a admin. only want to connect internet but my user is very smart they know how to creat new internet connection and all setting. Now i want only me to connect internet via modem. because in india one hour internet uses is around .75$.

    Again i explan that only admin. is allowed to connect internet via modem.

    thanx

    Sandeep

    Hi sandeepjaipur,
    It sounds like you have the same problem as most of us. The kids are smarter than we are! Im not sure but try calling your internet provider and set it up so you can only get one account on your service or that no one can setup an account without your permission!

    If you are running Win2K, AND have NTFS set up, can you not use the NTFS permissions to stop the other users accessing the Internet Explorer directory (and therefore iexplorer.exe) by giving it only admin rights ?

    You can create system policies with poledit (yes, it still works on w2k).

    Search the helpfile for policies and choose local policies.
    You can create a policy for various users in PolEdit.

    How to activate the policy on your computer:

    Open System Policy Editor.
    At the individual computer, on the File menu, click Open Registry, and then double-click Local Computer.
    Next to Network, click the plus sign (+).
    Next to System policies update, click the plus sign, and then click Remote update.
    To have the registry process error messages displayed on client computers, click Display error messages.
    To download the policy file from a server other than a domain controller, in Update mode, click Manual (use specific path), and then provide the specific path.
    If necessary, finish configuring policy settings for any other policy files on the computer, and then save the policy files in the appropriate folder.

    Hope this helps.
