I have a SBS and all clients log into this domain.  Is there a way to setup a list of approved web sites these machine may visit and just block everything else via a restrictive policy on the pare of the server ??

I have seen this often in large companies PC.  I am wanting to limit internet usage down to like 10 to 15 sites only to stop people from just playing around and / or checking personal email and shopping, etc.

Any ideas on how to achieve this ????
