Hello Gurus,
For supporting services , I am using Logmein software.and I am quite happy with it.
My problem is that I need to prevent the users from being able to browse the internet.
So I need the internet ONLY for logmein.
any settings I can do ?
machine Windows 2000 / XP no servers... standalone machines.
thanks a lot

You can block incomming/outgoing trafic from port 80 on your router. Log me in uses a different port, so people will not be able do navigate and you can still use Logmein.
You can also try setting a invalid DNS address on the computers so they can't resolve intenrt names, but can still use the internal network through netbios (Computernames and IPs).
Hope this one helps.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I can not change the DNS address coz the internet connection is shared.
now as to changing the port 80 on the router ? I have no router ???
how do I do that on a stand alone machine ?

enable firewall on the machine and create a rule to block all traffic on port 80. alternately you can give everyone static IP addresses with incorret DNS servers so they can't hit any external sites.

on the users firewall block port 80 (http) and port 443 (https) both incoming and outgoing and you should be in business.
