It?s simple. For allocating or not the right to use the Internet, you can make in several modes. The most easy way to users who have no rights for internet, don?t allocate the right to access the gateway, or don?t install the internet connection. For the second part of your question you must set the proxy server to the chat program.
Go to connect and enable using proxy server, give the proxy?s IP Address, and the port for using (usually port nr. 80 or 321

send me another solution

1. Our most users use windows OS with local administrator is enabled. They can change their network settings. I want to block them through MAC or something else.

2. Messengers are already configured with proxy settings at port 8080 but still unable to go in a chat room through messenger or even from a web browser.
