I'm working for a client who does not have a domain setup.  He would like one computer to only be allowed to browse one website through Internet Explorer.  Is there a way to do this via GP of the local computer?  I have disabled just about everything else in IE via the GP settings, but cannot find exactly what I need.

Any help would be great.  Thank you experts!

If you want to block everybody's IE then just input an 'non-existant' proxy server on IE and it will block all the URL requests;

IE->Internet Options->Connections->Lan Settings->Use the following proxy server and in that field input something like 1.1.1.1 or something.

So everytime the user tries to browse, it will try to contact 1.1.1.1 and it will timeout.

You can exclude the other machine from this so that he will be able to browse.

Cheers,
Rajesh

R-K ~

This is EXACTLY what I was looking for.  A free utility with customizationability (is that a word?) which was super easy to setup/use.

Thank you sir.  Good day.
