Restricting ISA - Emergency Users

Today im going about restricting the sites that office staff can get to - that has all gone OK and is working like a dream :) only two things have arisen:

1) I may need to have an "Emergency Internet user" account that can always overrise any rules i have created - do i just create the user, give full unrestricted access and ensure that the rule is given a high priority by moving it up to the top of the list?

2) How can i prevent the users from using a dial up connection to access the internet ?, therefore by-passing the ISA server totally ?

1. You can do this OR create the user and add to the exceptions list within the existing rule. Many people create the equivalent of a managers group in active directory and put this into the exceptions list. Now you can just add/remove people from the managers group to allow/deny access to the sites.
2. Use group policy to 'force' the proxy address and/or install the ISA firewall client.

Job done!
