Locked

Internet Access by User

By msemchuck@tinplatepartnrs ·
We have an NT LAN, connect to internet via partial T-1, firewall at router - DNS IPs from ISP on workstations that are allowed to access. Several users use one computer. Can I limit internet access to only one or two of the several users on the same computer? Can this be done by user log on profile?
Any suggestions...signed, struggling!

Not with the way your configured you will most likely need software that controls can be set.

I believe a solution was found(?):
If the permissions to the folder which "houses" Internet Explorer are modified to allow ONLY 'the' user and admistrator, the progam cannot be opened by any other user. I've tested it on several computers using several users and this seems to have "blocked" access. Maybe this will do it?!

That should do it. There's also a program out there called Fortres 101 (http://www.fortres.com) that we use in our Win98 environment. It allows you to lock out specific programs by preventing certain executables from running. If you use it in combination with the Central Control product, it simply imports your NT user list and you then set up various levels of security profiles. Also prevents things like screwing with the desktop settings, etc. Very handy in a school.
