    I am working with a small school that wants to provide Internet access for students. However, the school wants to limit access to certain sites. Can this be easily accomplished? Parental control is not what I'm looking for, but a way to block all sites but those on a list of approved sites by the school.

    Thanks for you time and assistance.

    My school uses this program, it's called Bess. It works pretty good, and it's pretty tough to get around...not sure how much it costs or if you're willing to buy something, but there's one option.

    I'm sure there are other ways to do it, but I think that you would have to enter each site that you want blocked...there may be a freeware or shareware program available however that does the same thing as Bess.

    I've used a product called Public Browser but only on a stand-alone kiosk-type machine (although it's designed for Library use).
