Can you Set Policy for Internet Browsing

By Archman ·
In a Win2k server and mixed client environment, is there a way to push down a policy (like system policies) for internet browsing? I don't want the users modifying the security settings for any of the zones in Internet Explorer (5.x and higher). Can those same policies be used in Netscape.

A1) For Internet Browsing Policy check WebSense.com site. I've used their web sense softwaare. Its a policy based filtering / firewall solution. Or you can try MS ISA Server 2000.

A2) To restrict users from modifying security settings use Internet Explorer Administration Kit or go to JSIINC.com a great site about registry settings for NT / W2k.
I've seen some registry settings for Win98 clients. Not sure of W2k.

You can use a noratings.rta access file on IE clients to prohibit Internet browsing. This is a heavy admin burden as you must configure this on each restricted client.

For some firewall solutions, you can purchase a content filtering software. This could help.

Also, you can either statically assign or use reserved DHCP address for the restricted systems, and deny them rights on the Gateway/Firewall.
