Intranet access without Internet access?

By jsutton ·
I am trying to set up a number of workstations (W2K) so that the browser (IE5 or 6) can access our intranet without being able to access the internet (otherside of our firewall). The network OS is NW5. Any ideas how to do this? So far all I can get is an all or ntohing result?Is this possible to do?

Intranet access without Internet access?

by guru@net In reply to Intranet access without I ...

Several options:

1. If workstations are on the same network as the Intranet and the workstations only need to get to the Intranet, then remove their default gateway. As long as the users don't have local administrator privledges they can't change this.

2. If the workstations are on a different network than the Intranet then you will need to leave the default gateway and restrict the workstations by IP address at the firewall.

- A not so clean alternative would be to add bogus proxy setting in IE and check the bypass proxy for local addresses, as well as add any Intranet hosts to the exceptions under the proxy advanced tab.
