I need to be able to restrict internet access on our office network (6 pc's), but I need to target specific PC's. Can this be done?

We use Windows 2000 nt

Mant thanks in anticipation.

When you say, restrict, do you mean limited access, or no access at all?

Access at some times during the day but not others, an on/off switch if you like for each particular PC.

but it's beyond my knowledge level.

I think you would have to create Group (or User) policies, depending on how your LAN is set-up, and then write a script to control the access times.

shakes, don't know whether this will work but you can give it a try.

Open up the Group Policy of the OU, expand Computer Configuration, expand Windows Components, open IE. In the right pane enable Security Zones: Use only computer settings, Do not allow user to change policies & Do not allow users to add/delete sites.

My old company used Wingate click here. I don't know how configurable it was but they had unlimited access during lunchtime and only access to restricted sites during the day.

They also assigned passwords to various managers so they could get access all of the time.

Perhaps "Novell" do a piece of software that allows this. Just a guess really.

Thank you all for the help, I am looking at all the options, but the Wingate software seems to do exactly what I want, I will be investigating further...once again thanks.
