Prevent Web Content

By tim ·
We use Windows 2000 A.D. with mostly XP Pro clients. Without using a proxy server, is there a way to block all web content? Through group policies, I do not allow IE, have active desktop disabled, and in Windows Explorer, I do not allow the address bar to be displayed. However through Windows Explorer, one can still reach the internet via the Search Explorer Bar option.

In Active directory users and computers set up an OU called NO Internet. Create a group policy for that OU that will give a bogus IP address for a proxy server. You don't need a proxy server to do this. You are just telling the client that they are to use a proxy that doesn't exist. This is found under User connection - Internet explorer Maintnence - Connection. You must also configure the group policy to prevent the user from changing the proxy settings. Now the user cannot access the internetregardless of the computer they log on to. If need to restrict access by a particular computer and not user, you can configure a loopback policy. Using group policy you will not have to purchase any additional equipment. If you need more detail please post. - Good Luck
