connecting internet

By dbhoomi ·
I have cable internet connection at home, I would like to restrict users connecting to internet, like the way we do in corporate offices. I am using "Windows 2000 Professional ,O/S". How can I do that.

Same style as on corporate offices: by adding a control point in between which checks all traffic and blocks where needed.
If it is a single PC, use filtering software like Surfcontrol and make the filtering dependent on the logged-in user.
If it is multiple PC's, install the filter on a central point. E.g. the router (some are smart enough to handle this, e.g. when based on Linux) or a PC server with a proxy task. In the case that the central point can be bypassed (proxy!), you'd have to lock down the individual workstations to avoid this...

Hope thiz helpz,

Try the appsec tool from Microsoft. It lets you control access to individual programs. You can download it from microsoft.com. Read the Knowledge Base article Q320181 before using it. Restrict access to any web browsers installed on the system, and that will probably do it. It's not foolproof, but it will keep the average user off the internet.
