Restrict Internet Access on Workstation
Posted on 2006-03-22
I have a kiosk machine that is all nice and locked down running Windows XP. It worked perfectly fine when they only needed access to one location. I just removed all methods of changing the URL and auto-loaded the page they needed. Well now, I need to grant access to 2 or 3 sites and restrict everything else.
My first thought is to modify the hosts file and give routes to the sites I want and somehow turn everything else to either a dummy page or the localhost. The problem is, can I use wildcards in the host file?
If so, how would I go about it?
Any other thoughts on how to accomplish this?
