If it has router capabilities this would work...Does it and/or do you have a router?

Thank you very much for your fast reply.

Sorry to inform you that i don't have router.
Infact, my organization is very small and we don't have the budget to buy router.

is there any other alternative solution to my question?

waiting for your reply.

You don't want people surfing the web at all or is there just one website you want blocked?

Tools > Internet Options > 'Security' tab > Click on the 'Restricted Sites' Icon > then click on the 'Sites . . .' Button.

Enter the sites you want, you don't need to enter the prefix.
(Entering 'yahoo.com' will block mail.yahoo.com, http://www.yahoo.com, calender.yahoo.com, etc)

If you have more then a couple sites you want to block, consider getting a router, you will have more flexability for blocking, you won't have to touch each PC everytime, and you can pick them up pretty cheap ($40). The low end routers are more geared to small networks (less then 10 PC's) but I've set up $50 Netgear routers in a 40+ User network and it ran decently considering the workload (only locked up once or twice a month, not bad for a temp solution)

sir,

No, i want my people to use internet, but at the same time they have to use it in a proper way as not to visit illegal site eg : porn sites.
Moreover, we are planning for a cisco router by next month.

i have messed up by trying with the above solution which you have given.

what i have done is , first i have open new window and switced to tools >internet options>security tab and then to restricted sites tab.
There i have given as eg: http://www.yahoo.com and pressed ok button.
when i opened new window and typed the url as http://www.yahoo.com ,its showing the site.

i don't understand why microsoft has given such option when there is no use .
or is that iam not getting it to proper way to restrict the site as you mentioned above.

Finally one more thing, is there any software where i can restrict the users by doing so.This is for my knowledge only.

And thank you very much once again foryour replies to my questions.

once again waiting for your earliest reply.

Regards,
A.Praveen kumar

ISA Server 2004 (2006 is coming soon) can do this for you but it probably isn't cost effective for a small business.

Hey just go through it

Tools--> Internet options--> Security--> Restricted Sites-->

Now just add sites which you don't want your users to surf at any cost.

you can do that or buy a internet security package for the computers then use the parental controls to block the sites you want, you can add a password to the settings so only you can change them.


you could also search google

I like Cybersitter, easy to install on a few machines and easy to customize.
