Jean-
The host file approach should work but if not, then you might want to take a
look at the Content Ratings feature in IE Maintenance policy. It's a quick
and dirty way of managing this problem for a given set of users. When are
you configuring it, you will want to ensure that you check the box that says
users can see websites that have no ratings.

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
