Yes exactly what do you want to control with this setup?

Maybe your only alternative is to go with a Server Application as an OS like one of the Nix distros and then control everything from there like what can access and what can not and limit access to certain web sites through the Server setup but without more info of exactly what you want to do it is impossible to answer any better than that.

A server is your only real hope of control. And if you are thinking of using a machine with XP, I believe 10 inbound connections is its limit (besides allowing you very little "control" over the othr machines in the network).
