Blocking websites

sumesh.tr
Hi

I have one windows 2003 server in which I have running Routing and Romote access Server ( RRAS).this is for our Routing and port forwarding.Also I configured DHCP in the same.

The Server has two NICs one connected to DSL Router and other to LAN.through DHCP I assigned DG as the LAN IP of the server for Clients.No I need to block the site that is harmful to the organization also block the Internet as a whole for a perion say 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM allowed and others timing shouldn't.

So I checked RRAS for this but no any result.is it possible if yes kindly give instructions

    ..but I'll attempt a comprehensive reply anyway.

    Generally routers and DNS filters are the common way to block content. Look in to what options you can implement through them (including your ISP).

    Most likely you will need to compliment that set up with a software firewall, most of which will allow scheduling.

    Not knowing what exactly you are dealing with doesn't help though. We have no idea how much access your users have to change back system settings you may adjust in an atttempt to solve this.

    Hi

    we had around 20-25 users and ISP providing us a static IP through which we are routing our software to remote users .This I done through Routing and Remote Access of windows 2003 Server .Here we don't have any physical FW and Router.one ADSL Router which provided by ISP.

    So to block the PCs which uses the windows 2003 server ,installed with RRAS ,as gateway for their routine internet application what should I do .I RRAS its not available.

    SO please

    Hi sumesh.tr,

    With the given example on your posting, you should be able to use your router software to block sites for specified people at specified times.

    A router is the hardware that directs traffic between your network and the internet. Most popular routers offer some sort of ?parental control? or ?internet access policy?. The key for many people may be remembering how to access that administrative panel. Usually, you can find this information from the manufacturer?s website.

    For Eg:

    1) You can allow one PC to access the internet all the time while also blocking certain websites for
    that user

    OR

    2) You can deny access to certain users during a specific time too

    Do post the results (if working or not)
