      I don’t know which proxy software you are using, but you can either block the user only or block everyone from that sight, by making an entry in the proxy server.
      You could also block that sight for that user only if the proxy software allows you to.

      Or, you can just tell the BOSS…

      … so they can fire the employee. Obviously, this person has no work ethics and the team would be better off without them.

        That is the only REAL solution

        to tell the manager.

        Then let the manager decide to fire or block.

        I provided the easy way to block in my other post, but would be stupid to do without the manager saying they want it done. It is not our job in IT to make sure people are doing their work. People get on a power kick and forget who they are, and what their job is.

      Poor managers try to use tech to compensate

      This is a management issue, not a technology issue.

      If you REALLY want to block it for that one user, just go to the gmail home page to get the URL.

      Go to that users host file and put an entry

      http://www.gmail.com 192.168.1.1

      replace the 192.168.1.1 with the link to a special page on your company web site that states “this site had been blocked because it is not a work related site.”

      Also, make sure that it is the manager that wants this to happen. It is NOT the job of IT to play IT NAZI and make sure people are doing their jobs. You just MIGHT find that YOU are the one out of work if you take this upon yourself to manage someone that does not work for you.
