Network connection

Hi,

    I was wondering is it possible to configure windows 2000 server so that it would restrict user from connecting to the Internet when they bring in their laptop to hook up with our network cable? The laptop will is not joined to the network.

Hi,

If they need o join to your domain you can set up group policies and prevent certain computer to acess the internet.

You could load/enable ISA server on your server, require all traffic to pass through the ISA server to get to the Internet, and only allow your accounts to the Internet that you want.  Unless Internet bound traffic flows through a device you can control with account type access you can't effectively control Internet access without it.

I was just going to suggest what pseudocyber suggested.

However, you can map the MAC addresses (or give them static IPs) of the computers you want to get online.   Create a DHCP scope (for the laptops) and restrict Port 80 access on the ISA for that IP (DHCP SCOPE) range.

What is edge device - firewall I mean? Can it handle any kind of ACLs (access lists)? If not - I'm affraid you will need additional hardware like mentioned ISA plugged between that edge device and your network switch.

Does your router have an option to restrict access to authorized users only? since this laptop is not authenticating to the domain, that's a possibility.  Or, can the switch restrict by port?  It's another thought.  I'm reaching a bit though.
