Good info Mike. I wouldn't have thought of using the Packet Filtering in
IPSec to do this, but its not a bad approach.

Sure, it's possible. I am using an IPSec trick to disallow web browsing for
some of our kiosk and clinic machines. You can use the steps in the
following articles to either block all web traffic and allow only certain
ones, or simply block certain websites and allow all other traffic. Works
great for blocking myspace and facebook J

 

Here are the links to the steps on how to make it possible. Shoot me an
email if you have any problems. It's not hard at all. Be warned though, this
is not a firefox specific fix, it will block surfing to those websites in
both IE and Firefox.

This should get you going in the right direction. Good luck!

Dave-

I think you're stuck with using a Proxy Server for this kind of control in
Mozilla browsers. Of course, IE has the content ratings stuff that you can
use for it.

Hello,

I want to know if there is a GP to block certain websites when people use a
Mozilla browser.

Thanks,

Dave
