How to lockdown IE to one specific site?

By twohigh ·
Hi, Im looking for a solution to lockdown one of my computers to only allow browsing on a specific site. The reason is that this computer is a librarycomputer and should only be used to search in the main librarys catalog.Is there a way to achieve this in Windows alone or do I need a 3rd-party software? Im using windows 2000 pro and the latest IE. I have no concern changing to Firefox if that makes things easier. Thx in advance

The answer lies in a firewall rule, not IE. you need to make a deny outbound port 80 for the range of IP's and then an allow outbound 80 rule for the IP address of the catalog server. If you don't have a firewall to configure (as many libraries don't), implementing one should be your first order of business. Although a bit of subject, you may want to use Public Web Browser as well http://tinyurl.com/836tq
PWB enables you to lock down the browser better than IE. Also has features like home page reset after a period of inactivity. A site license costs only $100 per year

You can obtain IEAK for free at http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/ie/ieak/downloads/default.mspx which will allow you to customize your IE as a kiosk.

Thx for your help guys. I already tried applying the kiosk-mode alternative and will see how that works out. But the tinybrowser-solution sounds good too...Especially since it looks a lot more configurable too my needs than IE
