Darren,
 
What if the users need access to specific Internet sites? If you set a
dummy Proxy server, it inhibits all traffic, correct?

Dave-

Whenever this question comes up, the best answer is usually to use a
Proxy Server to control this. If you have ISA from MS then you can use
its capability to integrate into AD to control access for specific users
and groups. However, in the absence of a proxy server solution, you can
kludge a solution using IE Maintenance Policy. Basically use the feature
in IE Maintenance policy to set a proxy server setting in IE to set a
"dummy" proxy server. By setting that, IE essentially fails when trying
to access any sites for the users who receive that policy.

I need to restrict internet access for 7 users on our school network.
They still need access to the file server but only to disable the
internet.  Our users will login to several different computers through
out the day so I am not able to lock a certain computer down.  We are
running Active Directory on Windows Server 2003 with XP Pro SP2 on the
workstations.  

 

I have been through the User Configuration and can only find a policy
that will remove the IE icon from the desktop and quick launch.  This
might work if I could find a way to disable the IE on the Start Menu as
well but am open to other ways also.

 

Thanks
