I have a user that is NOT in a domain and MUST be an administrator on his own PC.

I want to block internet access via a hardware firewall.

I can do this for specific PCs by IP and MAC Address.  

I assume I just need to block outbound ports 21,80, 443, 8080 and 8090 for this pc.

Am I missing anyting.

are you trying to block all WAN access, or just browsing the web and using ftp?

Just web access for ONE PC.
However, since email comes in through Exchange....I guess its the same.

as long as what your blocking is the outbound DESTINATION port you are good.

also, is there a concern that the user on this pc would set up a proxy/tunnel for him/herself, because this method wouldnt stop that.
