i mean i want all 25 PCs to be able to share files in the network but only 15 PCs will have internet access.

One way is to misconfigure TCP/IP on the computers with an incorrect gateway IP.

Then computers can't get to the Internet but can access their local network.

Just make sure the users don't have admin rights to change it back.

Log on with an account that has admin rights

Go into the Local Area Connection Properties

Open TCP/IP properties

Put in something like 1.1.1.1 for the gateway address.


Or set the LAN card to use a proxy server address

Go to Internet Options and click on the connections tab.

Then from there click on the LAN settings button at the bottom

Click the check box to connect through a proxy server and type in the box next to it

"127.0.0.1" this will make whoever uses the restricted account unable to access the Internet.
