URGENT! - ? about NT Security and user profiles....

By michael.burgess ·
I work for an organization that is till on Windows NT Server...

We have a domain and our users are authenticated with NT Security. We have Windows 2000 machines that are centrally located for some of our users to access the net... These machines have ONE specific login for everyone... A new policy that forbids this...

How do I setup these PC's to allow these people to login and browse the Internet w/o the need to setup multiple users on the PC's and configure them for Internet access etc...

I would like a way to have these users login or have a way to track who is using the PC when w/o the need to set all of these profiles up...

Seems to me that you can't have it both ways. HOWEVER, if you have a manual sign-in log (tablet with name, date, signin/signout times) at least if you needed to track sites visited, you can look at the Temporary Internet files based on date and time.

The real question is do these "users" have other pc access (their
own workstations) that is not Internet enabled, but does use NT
authentication. If they do then just set their profiles to be
roaming. When they logon at the internet stations their profile
would follow.

If you have a proxy server for connecting to the internet you could configure it to require authentification if someone connects to the internet. This means if someone visits a website, a popup shows where the username and password has to be entered. Since a proxy server logs all activity you would then be able to track who visited what site at what time and for how long and from which IP he connected from.

You can make the server use DHCP authenicate it through the server and make the server the domain for the win2000 machines to log onto. Thats what we're currently doing here.
