The simple solution is a HOST file - if it's just a single machine.

Like:
127.0.0.1 localhost
127.0.0.1 www.intranet.com

This should point all call for "intranet.com" to the local machine itself!
Unless a Proxy is used?

Another solution is to make a "fake route" for the server.

Like:
route add 199.1.1.1 10.0.0.1 -p
where 199.1.1.1 is the Intranet IP and 10.0.0.1 is a fake gateway...

There are other solutions - but these are simple I think.

Subject: [gptalk] Preventing a particular web site from being launched

All,

I have a kiosk machine that I have set up for the library that is being
used by some people outside of my organization and everything is working
fine. However, there is an intranet site that the library folks want to
prevent people from outside the organization from accessing. I was
thinking about using the host file on the machines to do it, but it does
not seem to be working. Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,
Jean
