Limit User Internet Access in WinXP Pro

I am setting up a peer-to-peer network (4 computers connected via router sharing cable internet connection). I would like to have different levels of users, some of who will be able to access email and/or the internet and some who will not. I am not sure if there is a way in WinXP Pro to do this (group policy, user account) or if I will need to try to set up the router to do it. Will I have to disable IE and Outlook from launching via the softare settings in the admin area of the console management?

A good proxy software will do that .....


im not sure what one to recommend though

And like you said user policies can also control that too

I found a cool way to do it. Converted my drive to NTFS, set permissions for the executables for Internet Explorer and Outlook to "deny all" for the select users that I don't want to have access. They were unable to access both programs, but other users could.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
